The White House, striking Washington Monument and sprawling National Mall dot our path through D.C. as you take time to reflect on the country's turbulent history at the Lincoln Memorial and somber World War II Memorial.

Day 4New YorkNew York Sightseeing and At Leisure: Reject a hurried New York state of mind, exploring the highlights of a city that never sleeps from the first-hand insights of a Local Specialist. Admire one of the world's most iconic skylines, from the towering Empire State Building to the mirrored peak of the iconic Chrysler Building. Breathe in the leafy expanse of Central Park, a quiet escape from the bustling city streets, and the green heart of Manhattan. And then it's off to Battery Park for magnificent views of the Statue of Liberty and a ride up to the "Top of the Rock" for a sweeping view of the isle's skyscrapers, parks, rivers and urban canyons.

Perhaps tea at Central Park's Tavern on the Green, a dim sum lunch in Chinatown, New York-style pizza in Little Italy-soak up the cosmopolitan cultures of a city that has been shaped by a wave of tenacious settlers seeking new fortunes.
