The eastern side of America offers some of the most popular and worthwhile travel destinations in the entire country. Each of the sprawling states on this side of the country, whether you venture near or further away from the coast; offers so much with regards to its famous cities and sights of natural beauty. If you’ve no idea as to where you should begin on a journey across the east coast of America, however; then here are some pointers.
This state is obviously famed for New York City. It’s one of the most popular tourist destinations in America and it’s not hard to see why. Famous landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty are sites that have an even bigger impact when seen in person. And when you’re tired of seeing all the “famous” spots in NY City that you’ve always admired in films, there’s a lot more to do in this great state. Niagara Falls is a natural masterpiece and it really does have to be seen to be believed. You can go hiking, biking, or fishing whilst you’re there and admire the three waterfalls: American Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.
Florida is obviously one of the most popular tourist destinations on the east side of America. It offers sunshine to go with the stunning coastline and that’s definitely a big selling point of this diverse and vast state. You should start by visiting a lesser-known city such as Islamorada if you want to experience some of the famous aspects of Florida life, such as Full Moon parties, but without the overcrowded nature of more common tourist cities, such as Miami.
Still, wherever you go in this state, whether you move further up or down the coast, you’ll have endless beaches to enjoy. You could stay somewhere right by the coast, such as the Regency Inn & Suites. And, obviously, if you want to see more than beaches then Universal Studios and Disney World are two very famous attractions that are worth visiting whilst you’re there.
It wouldn’t be a tour of eastern America if you didn’t visit the majestic capital of this great country. Much like a visit to New York City. You’ll spend a big portion of your time in this city; simply trying to absorb all the famous landmarks you’ve only ever seen in pictures. Sites such as the Lincoln Memorial are definitely worth visiting; for the sake of both admiring beautiful architecture and also for a history lesson into one of the most influential and important presidents in American history.
Being the home of the White House and many important political monuments; it’s hard to escape American history when seeing this great capital. Still, whilst history and politics are both intertwined into all aspects of the city. Washington has much more to offer for travelers and tourists. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts puts on wonderful performances. There’s really a lot to take in.
