Seattle is stunning on land but even better by sea. Get a fresh perspective of the gorgeous Emerald City with a one-hour Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour. As you glide by the dynamic city skyline, take in the sights and sounds of the bustling waterfront and its historic neighborhoods, including lively shipyards and terminals, container ships, the Washington State ferry fleet, towering cruise ships and maybe even a sea lion basking on the rocks or little seals frolicking in the harbor waters.
The Seattle Space Needle has been delighting visitors ever since its debut in the 1962 World’s Fair -- and it’s still a beloved attraction for locals and tourists alike. It’s the most iconic sight in the Seattle skyline and, for most people taking a trip to the Emerald City, it’s at the top of the "must do" list (it also tops our list of things to do with kids that parents also love!).
Too often, children get depicted as chicken-nugget-fueled, plastic-loving, unrefined maniacs. In reality, though, kids are eager learners looking to explore and make sense of the world in their own way. Being that NYC is abundantly rich in history, culture, and panache, it seems like a no-brainer kind of place to help kids along on their journey. Yet some still wonder whether the Big Apple is kid-friendly.
On September 11, 2001, most of America stopped in its tracks. The shocking events that took place on that tragic day pulled Americans—and much of the rest of the world—away from their busy lives to feel waves of complex emotion. Many years later, the day brings the country together in a reflective moment of silence. September 11 is a day that should never, and will never, be forgotten.
The most dominant building in the Chicago skyline, Willis Tower is home to The Skydeck, a thrilling tourist attraction that offers 360-degree views of The Windy City. The skyscraper (formerly known as the Sears Tower) has been a highlight for visitors to Chicago for many years. The Skydeck played a role in Ferris Bueller's Day Off , where the main characters famously leaned their foreheads against the windows to peer down on the city below.
Think the Windy City is just for grownups? Think again. The wide selection of kid-friendly museums, restaurants, shops, shows and gardens makes Chicago an exciting city to visit with little ones. The best things to do are centrally located and require little or no transportation—a huge plus for families. And the icing on the cake? These kid-friendly attractions are enjoyable for adults, too.
