Favorites from the Mid-Atlantic

Favorites from the Mid-Atlantic

The Mid-Atlantic is part of the populated Northeast Corridor and includes cities such as New York and Washington, DC that are typically associated with America. The states covered in this post are Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Also included is the District of Columbia. Below are my favorite places in the region along with links to my photo albums for each state or district.

District of Columbia (DC)

United States Capitol

The nation's capital is a must see for any American. Places such as the Capitol building, the Supreme Court, and the Smithsonian provide free and fascinating insight into the history and government of the country. The National Mall is home to a multitude of recognizable memorials and monuments paying tribute to important people in America's past.

New York City is so large and diverse that there is something there for everyone. Whether you are a fan of architecture, museums, night life,  or fine dining, just to name a few interests, you can find it. While the pictures below are of some of the more popular attractions, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Niagara Falls, New York

Horseshoe Falls from the Maid of the Mist

Niagara Falls is an awe inspiring site although it is certainly more enjoyable at off peak days/times when there are less crowds. There are actually three separate waterfalls: American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and  Horseshoe Falls, which is the largest. The best views of Niagara Falls are from the Maid of the Mist boat, which leaves from Niagara Falls State Park, New York or from the top of Horseshoe Falls located in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Independence Hall

Philadelphia played an important part in the founding of the United States resulting in the city having multiple historic landmarks. The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall are both iconic and worth a visit. Additionally good food, parks, and museums provide plenty to experience.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Pittsburgh Skyline

Compared to the other places on this list, Pittsburgh doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves. The city has a great food and bar scene, beautiful skyline, friendly people, and a number of top museums. Attractions within a one-two hour drive include Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and the Flight 93 National Memorial.
