The first time we went to New York we didn’t climb any tall buildings for the view. At first I thought it was a bit too touristy to do, but the Top of the Rock Observatory ended up being one of my favourite activities on our second visit. Tour guides told us if you have tickets to climb any building, show up at least a couple hours before your ticket time as the line ups are always crazy.
Quebec City is in the French province of Quebec in Canada. The whole town looks like it is straight out of the 1600s. It is the only remaining walled city in the whole of North America and is just a delight to walk around! Quebec City is divided into two sections- the Lower Town (Basse Ville) and the Upper Town (Haute Ville). The lower and upper parts are connected by various stairways and also a funicular, or type of chairlift.
Muir Woods is probably one of the places we wouldn’t have thought of visiting while in San Francisco if it wasn’t for someone telling us about it. The National Park is home to Californian Redwood trees, which happen to be 500-800 years old! The heights of the trees is staggering, almost making you dizzy to look straight up in hope of finding their tops.
The city of San Francisco is known for its eclectic mix of modern, Victorian and colourful homes with bay windows everywhere you turn. Each home speaks of the era it was built in and also the neighbourhood where you will find it, for example the brightly-coloured ‘painted ladies’ of Haight Ashbury. This is a great site for more information on the different types of homes in San Francisco.
