Hi, we will be in NYC for 5 nights from Oct 29-Nov 3 and DC from Nov 3-6. We've been to NYC on 3 previous trips so I'm sure we done all the must sees (Top of the Rock, Empire state building, Time Square, Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Theatre, The Today show, Guggenheim, shopping, etc) Since my husband is running the NYC Marathon, we have 3 full days to explore. We are renting an apartment near Columbus Circle, so any ideas on things to do in NYC or places to eat nearby would be appreciated. Outside of the 9/11 memorial, what else should we see or do see.
I've only been to DC twice (once as a kid) and another time for a day about 4 years ago. This will be my husbands first trip to DC. How would you organize our our 2 1/2 days. We are staying close to Dupont Circle.
It's weird, I spend months and months researching and planning our trips to Europe, but I haven't put the same kind of effort into this vacation so need some help.
