The Brooklyn Bridge over the East River is among most recognized symbols of New York City. One of the oldest and earliest suspension bridges in the world, the 1,600-foot structure connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Explore Brooklyn by day and Manhattan by night during your stay in New York City.
Times Square, “The Crossroads of the World” and heart of “The Great White Way,” is one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions. Known for the annual New Year’s Eve live ball drop, Times Square is exciting 365 days a year. It draws some 50 million pedestrians each year for shopping, photo opportunities, or simply people-watching. The bustling district is even more impressive at night when massive electronic billboards light up the city sky.
Your tour of Boston’s Freedom Trail includes the historic Park Street Church, an active Congregational church constructed in 1809. The 2.5-mile Freedom Trail takes you to 16 historically significant sites as it traces the birth of the American Revolution and the development of “The Cradle of Liberty.” Created in 1951, the Freedom Trail is a unique collection of museums, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, a ship, and historic markers that tell the story of the American Revolution and the city of Boston.
The Washington Monument on the National Mall honors George Washington, the country’s first president. The monument is the world’s tallest obelisk and the tallest stone structure, at more than 550 feet tall. The Washington Monument stands at the center of the National Mall, a park containing museums, monuments, and government structures. The National Mall stretches from the U.S. Capitol building to the Lincoln Memorial and draws 24 million visitors annually.
Boston Common is the oldest city park in the United States. Created in 1634, the 50-acre park lies at the foot of Beacon Hill and marks the southern end of the Freedom Trail. Boston Common includes the Central Burying Ground, the last resting place of painter Gilbert Stuart, composer William Billings, and Boston Tea Party participant Samuel Sprague. The park was also the site of the first organized football game in the country, as commemorated by the Oneida Football Monument.
The Lincoln Memorial on the western end of the National Mall honors Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States. Open 24 hours a day in the central government district, the Lincoln Memorial draws six million visitors each year. This iconic structure – where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963 – is one of the many highlights of our guided tour of the nation’s capital.
