Hi! I am Jay here. i wish to travel on a family holiday for two weeks to the East Coast USA. I have never been to USA before. What would you advise me: there are three of us, me : my spouse and my daughter: all adults. I want to start with New York.

The vacation will commence in July 2008.

Well, two weeks isn't a whole lot of time. If you want to do New York, then I would recommend that and Washington, D.C. There's so much to do in D.C. and it's a pretty family friendly and educational type place. You could probably fit it one more place if you wanted, but could easily split it between just those two.

Well.. I'd spend a week in New York.. then drive down to philly for two days.. then head to DC via baltimore - ideally taking in a uniquely american event like a minor league baseball game (much more intimate than a major league game and you have a hald dozen teams between NY and DC). Baltimore is worth a day - maybe two. Get to DC, see the mall, the white house, the smithsonian.. and just enjoy the area.
