We all know that Philly stays jiggy (as Will Smith says). Philly is a cool place for a weekend getaway from NY, especially if you're there for longer and you want to see the US outside of NY (because it's a completely different thing). Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are worth the trip by themselves. In between meals you might also want to go see the National Museum, Independence Hall and Liberty Bell.

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.

We were in US in the Halloween month and the preparations made us acutely aware of the celebration that was to take place on 31st. Sleepy Hollow as the name suggests is a locality serene in the afternoons and eerie as the night approaches. Walking alongside the Hudson we heard some ear blasting music and we decided to check out the place. It was a Halloween carnival going on! Like and excited child I bought the tickets and loved each second of the 30 minute Halloween stroll.
