Important Cities

New York

The financial and cultural capital of the United States, New York is the ideal city destination for many. The city's galleries are bursting with originality and creativity and the museums house some of the best collections in the world. For art lovers the original Guggenheim Museum is a must see along with the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. At night the city transforms into a stage where you can see countless musicals, fringe theater shows, comedy nights, indie cinema, live music events and poetry readings. Dining in the city is creative, artisanal locally sourced produce is hip right now and culinary innovations reflect the cities thirst for freshness and diversity.


Philadelphia is a historic city with incredibly well-preserved architecture and a certain small town charm that makes it welcoming and accessible. It's historical locus is the Independence National Historic Park, where inside the park's buildings the seeds of the US government were sown. In particular check out the Independence Hall where delegates met to approve the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. Be sure to try a famous Philly cheesesteak!

Washington D.C.

The capital of the U.S and home to many iconic landmarks, Washington D.C. is a magnet for tourists wanting to explore America's political and historical past. Monuments include the infamous Lincoln Memorial and the Martin Luther King Memorial.

Climate, Cuisine & Travel with Children


Early Spring is a perfect time for a Cape Cod getaway as the crowds have yet to arrive and in April you can enjoy the daffodils in bloom. For a road trip, late September to the end of October is a great time as you can take long, scenic rides to see the spectacular colors of the fall foliage. Winter is ideal to head south along the Eastern Seaboard, whether chasing the sun down in Florida or cozying up in the quaint towns of Virginia. Summer offers fun just about anywhere on the East Coast with plenty of free, outdoor festivals in the big cities and the weather is just right for swimming in the Atlantic Ocean.


The cuisine on the East Coast is inspired by seafood from the Atlantic and the melting pot of cultures in the cities. All things clam are popular including clam chowder, clam cake, stuffed clams and fried clams. In cities like New York and Philadelphia the Italian-American influence is everywhere, and you can get a submarine sandwich filled with just about anything.

Traveling with Children

Most of the cities on the East Coast have fantastic activities for children. New York has some particularly incredible museums that are specifically geared towards children and early learning. Massachusetts has great offerings as well with the Harvard Museum of Natural History in Cambridge and The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield. Children will also enjoy all the outdoor adventures possible on a family vacation to the East Coast. There are plenty of opportunities for nature hikes and days out on the beach all over the region.

Winter on the East Coast

There are a couple of places that offer fantastic scenery on the East Coast at the beginning and end of the winter. They include seeing beautiful fall foliage in New England and seeing the cherry blossoms bloom in the springtime in Washington D.C. Head to NYC around Christmas for shopping and the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. If you're looking for something warmer, go diving in the Florida Keys.
