For October break, I traveled to Philadelphia and Washington D.C. In both cities there was so much we (my 7 travel companions and I) wanted to do. Both cities are full of so much history, from the beginning of the country to our current government. I would recommend that anyone go to either place, it was an incredible experience.
In Philadelphia, first stop was of course the liberty bell. We stood in line for a while, watched a few educational videos and each took pictures by bell. Other experiences include the museum of the countries start, and of course have a big group picture under the large “Love” sign. After all it is the city of brotherly love. We also tried our very first Philly steak and cheese sandwich. It was delicious! After that we explored the first congress building and hung out in a park with a gorgeous fountain. It was a very time in Philadelphia.
Next the trip to DC. This is by far my favorite place in the United States. There is a lot of activity and things to do. The only bad thing is that there are not many good restaurants open late. We explored the city at night first. It was a really good choice. We visited the typical sites, war monuments, George Washington’s monument and Lincoln’s. It was gorgeous to see them all lite up at night.. it brings a different experience then what I had visited them during the day. I would recommend to everyone that they stop by at least the WWII monument at night. We also visited the white house, took pictures were we acted like the president, and explored the house of congress. Over all my favorite part was the mall of course. With all the museums. And the Holocaust museum is incredible.
