This year February, i was in #LasAngles and got one day free for some sightseeing. I decided to go to Universal Studio. Being a non working day, It was a lot of crowd there. I started with the Simpson ride first and quite enjoy it. Then i was waiting in the queue for the tour bus of Universal Studio, where they take everyone to show around the sets of Hollywood and a lot more.There was one Korean girl standing next to me in the line and she requested if her friends can join in the line. I was ok with it so i said sure not a problem. She called her other Korean friend who joined her. After few minutes they asked if other friends join too, so i just smiled. I have been to Korea many times so i knew some basic Korean words. I just greeted them saying "anyohaseyo"(which means hello in Korean). They were more excited than surprised and then we started interacting throughout the ride. I came to know that two of them(Jeni and Kate) were settled in NYC since birth and visited other friend(Mini) who was settled in LA.As i was alone so they invited me to join them for the rest of the day. Mini was living in LA from a long time and had been to the theme park many times, so was the best local person who could help me :)
San Francisco is the city one falls in love with. The San Francisco bay area is surrounded from three sides by the pacific ocean which brings in the coldest summers i had ever witnessed . After an hour drive from the San Jose city i was able to see the skyscrapers line of the city . Crossing amidst the clouds the skyscrapers were standing strong and rigid without any top ( because of the dense cluster of clouds) . I could only think of the transcendent view people working on top must be having . yeaah!!! i didnt went on top of those skyscrapers ( not in my hands)
After an American breakfast we proceeded on an amazing Whale watching experience. This was a first for us so we weren't sure what we should expect. We drove to Boston harbour to the Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary, a rich feeding ground for Whales, Dolphins, Sea birds and more. And the view we saw was unreal - whales dancing around us flapping their tails !! It was a clear day and we had a fantastic time.
The nation’s capital, it’s packed with things to see and do year-round. Washington boasts monuments that are a must-see; cool neighborhoods with lots of shops, restaurants and cafes; and like New York, people from all over the world. It is also the nerve center of politics. Your embassy is highly likely somewhere in Washington. As a teenager, I spent summers in Washington, staying with an uncle and other relatives who live there. And as an adult, there always seemed a reason to return to Washington, either for work or for pleasure, sometimes both.

Empire State Building
The fourth-tallest skyscraper in New York, The Empire State Building is a National heritage structure and one of the seven wonders of the Modern World. The enclosed observatory on the 102nd floor is the city’s highest lookout point. From here, you can enjoy views of all five boroughs and five neighboring states; at sunset, you can glimpse an elongated urban shadow cast from Manhattan all the way across the river to Queens. It highlights the Art Deco style and its architecture is in sync with American culture. It was ranked number one by Americans for its architecture.
Classic meets current at Rockefeller Center, New York City's ultimate shopping destination. From spacious flagships to unique specialty stores, there is something here for every taste and closet, in iconic surroundings as sophisticated as they are welcoming. And whether you want to grab a quick bite, get your cappuccino fix, meet friends for cocktails or savor a special family dinner, you’ll relish the delicious options. There are several paid tours available - check them out.
From here the route will take us through the heart of SOMA (South Market) and CBD (Community Benefit District). There are numerous shopping options and high-end restaurants here. But you won't be sorry about ditching them once you face the Embarcadero, Telegraph Hill or walk around Chinatown or gape at Transamerica Pyramid.
If you move along the 5th Ave towards Empire State Building, there will be almost nothing unsual in the urbanscape of the space but the minute you look to your 12 o'clock, you see a building with a steep egde, almost like a triangular edge. Just when you will think to yourself if it were habitable, you should learn that this building is completely functional and there are offices on every edge that desnt quite look like a livable area. Strange but architecturally possible!
Walt Disney Concert Hall
Its rightly a 'French Curve in the city of T-squares' If you fancy modern art and architecture, this is a must see attraction. Now open for various operas and theater performances, LA Phil or the Walt Disney Concert Hall rests in the heart of Los Angeles overlooking Downtown Los Angeles along the civic center. The space is abnormally quiet on the junction of two important streets. The best feature of LA Phil is the shiny metallic titanium finish that outshines the surrounding sandstone and brick towers.
