Washington DC and New York 2012

Let the Planning Begin

Planning for our vacation to Washington D.C. and New York is fully underway now. Following a trip back to Denver last year for a class reunion and a visit later in the year to Bryce and Zion National Parks, my wife and I decided we would go to NY and DC for are annual family vacation in 2012. Our country has so many National Parks and Monuments that are great to visit. Because of this we have been trying to visit one of these places each year as part of our vacation.

Having lived in Washington D.C. I am looking forward to showing Terri and Tesslyn the sights and history of our nation's Capitol. The trip will begin and end at Baltimore Washington International Airport. For this vacation we will be flying into BWI, a significant savings compared to IAD (Dulles) and DCA (Regan National) that are also in the area. From there we will be picking up our rental car and traveling about two hours to stay the night in the Philadelphia area, a quick side visit to Constitution Hall, the Liberty Bell, and Museum of Art for the infamous front steps and we will proceed to NYC where we will be for 6 days including the 4th of July. After that we will travel the 4-5 hour trip back to DC for another 6 days in the Washington DC area. All in all, we will be visiting for 13 days and as always trying to fill it up with everything we can.

We have some of the plans made and will be making more in the days and weeks to come. Keep reading to follow what we have chosen for the trip and are reasoning. We usually like to make the most of our travels and have never been disappointed by one of our trips yet. If you have suggestions or ideas for the trip or topics in this travel blog, feel free to let me know in the comments after each post. We look forward to interacting with everyone.
