tourism advice. DC for one day, NYC for 2-3 days

Greetings.

My GFs brother is coming to visit us for two weeks starting on the 10th.

He wants to do the tourist spiel and visit DC and NYC (maybe swing by philly too)

His basic plan for the visit is as follows
1) Arrive on the 10th
2) spend the first week+ in central pennsylvania, oogle local stuff, drink a lot in State College with my GF and me.
3) Spend 3-5 days around the eastern corridor playing tourist with my GF.
4) leave the states from NYC directly (he leaves the states, My GF takes a greyhound back to State College, PA)

I would ask my fellow asylumnates if you have some suggestions regarding:

Philly (half a day)
- Touristy things that must be seen
- non-touristy things that must be seen

DC (1 full day).
- Touristy things that must be seen
- non-touristy things that must be seen
- Bars to visit (that won't steal the clothes of your back)
- Affordable accomodation. This doesn't have to be downtown, but should ideally be near to some form of mass transit system.

NYC (2-3 full days)
- Touristy things that must be seen
- non-touristy things that must be seen
- Bars to visit (that won't steal the clothes of your back)
- Affordable accomodation. This doesn't have to be downtown, but should ideally be near to some form of mass transit system.
- Ideas about how to spend three days in NYC, and the order in which things could be done would also be most welcome.

With that in mind do any of you know if he can put his luggage in storage somewhere in NYC (besides the accomodation), as he would like to be able to enjoy his last day in NYC without having to schlep his luggage around with him all the time.

?

Cheers

You often have problems with bars stealing your clothing?

It doesn't count as theft when you give them away.

I tried that line already.

Mord or mudded.

That is the question.

Shove your luggage inside a bus terminal locker.
Some of those are huge.

Sure they do. Take the key and go.
Now if you got a whole lotta shit,they got these at bus stops. Don't know how to pay for these,though. Some of this is monthly only.

Philly- the museum and the Rocky steps, Geno's for cheesesteak, and I recomend an Eagles game.

NYC- Madison Square gardens tour, Rockafella center studios tour, infact just go here cos its decent value for money.

I used when i visited NYC.

Go to the Liberty Bell in Philly. Maybe the Mint.

Leave Philly. Never return, unless to watch a Phillies game.

DC, I'd just walk along the Mall and look at the monuments, if the weather is nice. Otherwise, go to a Smithsonian museum (Air and Space, if you have a car). Remind everyone that the cops near the Whitehouse and Capitol Building are totally devoid of a sense of humour. The Big Hunt bar near Dupont circle (1345 Connecticut Ave.) is cheapish and the area isn't dangerous. Only opens at 4pm, as I recall, but there is a bar on Dupont circle itself where you can burn money until Big Hunt opens. They have some sort of Happy Hour, too.

In NYC, I'd go to the National History museum and MOMA, because both are pretty cool (National History has dinosaur fossil! Mmmmm, dinosaur fossils). And walk in Central Park, etc, etc. But really, for NYC, get a Rough Guide or Time Out's guide, or something.

if yer going to be in dc for only a day, don't hit arlington, you won't have enough time.

there's probably a lot you wont be able to fit in in a single day.

Hang out with Sabine and GB. Do something amusing with them like visit the Holocaust Museum.

Goatboy and I did the mall, the monuments and Arlington in a day. There is even pictorial evidence to prove it! You just have to like walking (we went on the early January day that was freakishly warm, but the weather there now should be pretty good for walking, too.

i imagine that visiting the holocaust museum with goatboy would be both hilarious and dangerous.
