Another amazing National Park to visit. We spent a few hours here but could have spent a few days. Admission fee for the film, cyclorama, and museum was well worth it. Breathtakingly beautiful landscape in which to immerse yourself in such an important moment in American history and honor those who sacrificed their lives for liberty.
It's a decent theme park with some thrilling roller coasters, a small zoo, and a water park (which we did not experience.) Navigating the pathways through the park was very frustrating, and it was a lot of trekking up and down hills. Do not expect Disney style service. This park is mostly operated by teens, some of whom are apathetic or unable to give directions. The bathrooms have chocolate cake flavored air conditioning piped in, which is weird, if not downright disturbing.
Expansive and gorgeous, this National Park site is well worth several hours of your day. Tour Washington's headquarters, visit the museum, bring a picnic lunch, rent a bike and take it all in.
If you're a Hamilton fan, you should stop here, otherwise it's just a small scenic overlook in a residential neighborhood across the river from NYC. Not really even a park.
Perfect location to stay if you want to visit NYC without having to deal with the hassle of traffic. Bus stop is adjacent to the hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean, and the complimentary breakfast is one of the best I've had.
Pizza here is fresh, delicious, affordable, and authentic New York style! Easy access if you're passing through the Bronx, and there is ample street parking.
Beautiful free museum that includes an audio guided tour of a submarine. Very informative and fun for kids. Get your National Park passports stamped here.
Lobster and clam chowder are very delicious. I had a hot lobster roll and it was absolutely perfect! Beautiful casual location. Be prepared to wait for a table if you want to eat in. If you don't have time to wait, order your food to go and eat it at the stone benches at public beach three blocks away.
Not a lot to see here, but if you're looking for a place to stretch your legs and meet some adorable farm animals, it's worth a stop. It's free to visit the animals, but if you want to feed them, it's $1 for a cone full of food. Young children will enjoy this experience.
Absolutely beautiful and powerful trip through a critical point in American history. Plan to pay for some of the sites along the way... But they are worth the money. Cobblestone walkways make for difficulties with wheelchairs (or strollers, but I doubt this activity would hold the attention of young children anyway.)
