The East Coast of the USA Has Fantastic Cultural Experiences forTravelers

A lot of people enjoy traveling because it gives them an opportunity to be at one with nature and find some inner peace and tranquility. It is certainly true that there isn’t a natural wonder on our planet that won’t take your breath away. However, some people say that as wonderful as nature may be, true wisdom is found when experiencing cultures and creations made by man.

If you book on one of the Tauck Tours to USA, you will have an opportunity to experience all of this, particularly if you go to the East Coast. Some of the biggest cultural centers can be found here, mainly in the big cities. Places like Philadelphia, Washington DC and New York City are just some of the possibilities that are open to you. Visiting these places gives you a chance to see true wonders of the modern age, as well as being able to experience the fascinating cultural tapestry that is American history.

If this is your first time in the USA, make sure you learn as much as possible about the places you will visit before you go. Firstly, make sure there is a valid visa for entry, you can find more details at ESTA Application.When you book on an East Coast tour, you should be given a full itinerary of places you will visit and routes you will travel, which will give you an opportunity to prepare yourself for the things that you will get to see. One of the reasons why it is important you do this is because you will probably go to the three big cities mentioned previously, and these cities are so big that, without any knowledge on what to do, you may just find yourself slightly lost.

New York City
New York City is often referred to as the ‘Big Apple’. Most people know at least some of the things that you can go and visit here. These spots include:
·        The Empire State Building
·        Fifth Avenue
·        NBC Studios
·        The Rockefeller Center
·        Wall Street
·        The Statue of Liberty
These places are all marvels of the modern world, representing the height of modern civilization. They are our equivalent of Machu Pichu and the Pyramids, in other words.

Washington DC
Washington DC is where the US government sits. This doesn’t mean you have to become involved in politics, but some of the political places are not to be missed. Make sure you visit Capitol Hill and the White House, for instance. Just looking at those places and imagining the decisions that are being made behind those walls can be overwhelming. Furthermore, the city is filled with amazing memorials to past presidents and to many wars. Plus, it is said to be designed according to Masonic laws, which adds a little mystery to it.

Philadelphia

Philadelphia, or Philly, is considered to be the Mecca of freedom and liberty for Americans. This is why you simply must visit the Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and marvel at the places where the American Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were born.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
