Your best option for taking in all of NYC is by air. Here, you'll have a 20min. ride to see everything from a birds-eye-views and without any pains in the neck! You'll be able to see all the most iconic skyscrapers all in one glimpse: the Empire State, Chrysler Building, NYT Building, the Trump Building, and more. It is, without a doubt, an experience I'd recommend to the whole world!
The Glen Canyon Dam is one of the attractions of the area of Page and Lake Powell. In my opinion, you should first go to the information center to get information about the national parks and permanent exhibits open to the public. Most of the exhibits are free but the tour of the Dam costs $5 per person. For those who have time, it´s interesting to see this side of the river with the use of electricity and human construction.
First things first, the visitor center has public toilets (essential information!). But generally it has everything you might need to learn more about Philadelphia: brochures on museums and other attractions, maps, and also the odd souvenir for sale. This is also where you have to get a ticket to gain entry to the building of independence / constitution (admission is free but seating is limited, thus you need a ticket - go early in the morning to avoid missing out!). The center also has a lounge where you can watch a short film on about independence (in English, unfortunately for those who do not speak that language!). Located in Independence National Park, the visitor center is adjacent to a cute outdoor cafe open during the summer, and wide spaces of grass.
The tourist information centre in Anchorage is located at the corner of 4th Avenue and F Street. It is housed within several buildings, but the main one is a typical, small Alaskan cabin with a lawn on the roof surrounded by flowers. One of the other buildings is the old town hall, and the third has a huge sculpture at the entrance. It is the best place to gather all the information about your stay in Alaska.
There are main places to see Manhattan from above. The first is the famous Empire State Building, but be warned that you may have to wait for more than two hours. The second is the Top of the Rock observatory in the Rockefeller Center. This observatory occupies floors 67 and 70 and is open from 8:00 am until midnight. It's not cheap: $25 per person. We went at 9:00 am and there was no queue so we could spend more time at the top. When it's full of people, your time on the observation deck is limited to 20 minutes. On a clear sunny day, the views are spectacular.
Like Washington and many European cities, Boston has a system of rental bikes available throughout the city. The operation is simple, and may be familiar to you from other travels: create a card with your user account ($ 12 for 3 days, 5 per 24 hours), and then the first half hour is free and the following will be charged to your account. If you're smart, you can just return the bike to any station within the first 30 minutes, and take another! The only problem is that there are not as many stations as you might like, so you'll waste a bit of time looking for a place to leave the bike ... but it's still a good way to get around!
I admit it, I'm a woman who loves glamour ... and if the windows of Swarovski in Manhattan are dazzling, those of the Boston store are completely different. If you love things that sparkle too, don't miss out ...
When I arrive in a new city I always try to catch the tour bus in order to really see the new place. The company in LA offers three different tours. There's one that goes downtown (the purple line) and takes 2 hours. The second goes around Hollywood and Beverly Hills (the red line), which takes 2.5 hours and another that goes to the beaches nearby (the yellow line), which takes about 2 hours too. The city is huge so they advise you to take a maximum of two tours per day. You can buy a ticket for two days of tours though if you want. The price for one day is $40 and you can hop on and off whenever you want. It is also possible to get various discounts at museums and some shops with your bus ticket which is a great deal. The map shows all of the routes that are provided.
An information center dedicated exclusively to Broadway! Inside, you can book tickets for musicals and other shows, but beware, there are no discounts! There is a small museum dedicated to musicals, which shows some stage costumes, and a video on the history of Broadway narrated by the great Julie Andrews herself. In the middle of the room is the famous ball that drops each New Year's Eve, and on the walls visitors have put post-its about their own Broadway dreams. The staff are friendly and warm. Open 7 days a week, from 8 until 8.
Tourist Information in Parque Nacional Grand Teton
We've already visited the oldest national park, Yellowstone, and now we continue to Grand Teton Park, where we see similar magnificent landscapes that make you feel very small, but also very lucky to have the chance to enjoy them. The visitor centers are great, with videos and good collections of artifacts from the native tribes who once inhabited this area. There's plenty to do here for adventurers and climbers, and you can also see great wildlife. There are annual passes, or different prices for groups, vehicles, walkers and cyclists. Open all year round with guided visits organized by the park rangers.
You'll appreciate an extensive list of resort amenities and activities the entire family will enjoy.
From tropical swimming pools and other recreational opportunities to spacious villas large enough to accommodate even the biggest families, you'll be eager to return to the resort after a fun-filled day
The Boston Fenway Station is a stop on Line D, or the Green Line. It is located in the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood. This station has a lot of traffic and is expanding across the line since so many people make use of this service.
Fantastic staff who were both very helpful and incredibly informative. You can purchase the usual information books, maps and souvenirs but the main highlight is the exhibit on Badlands National Park. It takes you on a journey through history teaching you everything you could possibly want to know about the geology, flora and fauna of the area. There are a few 'hands on' display which are always good for the kids. Make sure to allow a good 30 minutes in here.
Oh and the view from the back of the visitor centre is spectacular at sunset - check out the picture!!
Hats off to the crew at Get Up and Ride, their tours are seriously the BEST way to see NYC. All the tours are led by knowledgable local guides ve really know their stuff...
From history, to current political climate to great restaurant and bar recommendations! We had a small group of 8 that day, they don't take more than 10 I believe. They offer tours every day of Brooklyn and Manhattan that last about 4.5 hours, the time flies by as they incorporate stops a local shops like Devocion in Williamsburg - the tastiest coffee shop I've ever been too! Do it.
