As I was already inspired by the New York City because on numerous occasions I have had heard that this city has the best tourist destinations that are full of wonder and enchantment. Therefore, I found a whole tour package deal on the internet which best includes the famous attractions like the three major falls of Niagara, John Hancock Tower, as well the full city exploration journeys of Washington Dc, my favorite New York City, and Philadelphia. The tour was excellent because we mostly went to the places which really had our interests; just for an instance at the Harvard University, I was so amazed to see our young generation working really hard on the technological projects and other ones, including the MIT as well.

Well, the very first impression on this journey didn’t go well for me. You know why? Because on the first day we had to visit almost the entire New York City and I was tired enough, for the reason that we had to travel in the night from Florida (hometown) to the Brooklyn, from where we had to depart at 6:50 AM on this so-called 5-day tour. However, the Corning Glass Museum, National Museum of Natural History, and Capital Harbor Cruise were the reason I appreciated this tour. The service could be better. Just the accommodations were perfect, ha!

Being a well-grown person in this society makes us busier in a routine, thus to jump out of my boring routine and work, I planned to depart on this tour of total five days with my husband. I really looked into and made myself up to why not visit the world-famous Niagara Falls, white House and the memorials there in DC, and countless others, which I could. Time Square in NYC was exactly like how imaged it with full of people and bustling sort of. What a wonderful and unforgettable cuisse we had on the Hudson river, I was sipping Champagne and catching the enticing sight of the city, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bride, and the river itself; wonderful. Holiday Inn, plus the Ramada hotel were the best idea most probably they are the most luxurious and most recommended accommodations we could have had thought of.
