    9/11 is not an east topic to cover. Even though it was 20 plus years ago I can still remember certain distinct aspects of the day - watching the Today Show as the first hit was being reported on and the second occurred, driving and listening to the Howard Stern Show as they discussed live what was going on and how they all reacted, picking up my kids from school and making sure the teachers were aware what was going on and more. The National 9/11 Memorial and Museum does a great job recapping 9/11 almost minute by minute, and they do so with radio feeds, TV feeds, recovered items, newspaper clippings, interviews, airline recordings, voice mail recordings and more. There is even a section dedicated to the canines who helped search the rubble and consoled first responders and survivors. We lived in NYS at the time, six hours from NYC, but still knew so many folks living there and who were/could have been impacted. We had been to the reflecting pools before but this was our first time in the museum; we spent three hours but it was not enough and plan to visit again. Like Yad Vashem it is hard to capture it all in one visit, and we’ve been to Yad Vashen multiple times. As you enter the Museum there is an optional 22 minute video on the hunt for Bin Laden, it is highly recommended you watch the movie, it gives great context on exactly how we were able to bring him down. On a final note, buy your tickets ahead of time, it will make your experience much smoother.

    Beautiful mountains, nice paved roads. Nice lookout spots and hiking spots. 15 or 17 to get in, I can’t remember.

    My son is a Harry Potter fan (I'm not so much) and not a fan of really big rides. This land in Universal is one of our favourites. Its just like stepping into the film with the fantastic theming and going round the castle as you wait in line there is just so much to see. We love the rides, he can go on all of them although never made it on Hagrids yet as the queues even now are just so long. One day......

    We loved the day spent here. So beautiful, relaxing enjoying the setting, the fine collection of Greek & Roman Sculpture, Goldsmiths work, jewelry, pottery . the Villa, loved the central courtyard with the colonnade and pool. A heavenly place to spend the day including a delicious lunch.

    Super good! Many historical pieces of art to check out and read up on. It was also helpful there were benches planted all around as I am pregnant and needed little breaks for my swollen feet. Husband and I loved it!

    Great experience. You can read and learn about lots of things. You can walk almost everywere and see how the prisoners lived there. Before you visit this place I recommend watching the film „ Escape from Alcatraz” (1979). How to get there? The best option is to buy an online tickets because there are limited places.

    Give yourself at least four hours-so much to digest and learn and understand. Really well done presentations.

    We went on Sept. 6th, Tuesday evening. All acts were top notch. Some were old style and others newer. Riders in the Sky, Mike and the Moonpies, It was overall a wonderful show. We especially enjoyed the comedian. He was so funny and with clean humor.

    My family and I really enjoyed seeing the murals in person, though some of the reviews are spot on about this place. The exhibit itself is not very big and you can see most of the art from the sidewalk. There were cooler pieces of art throughout the neighborhood on random buildings. My boyfriend and I really appreciate art though, so I did not mind paying the fee to see the murals up close. It is worth coming to this neighborhood to see the murals and stop at the Graffiti Museum and unique shops in the surrounding area. I would not go to this neighborhood after dark though. We went in the evening while it was still daylight and people seemed like they were going to party in the streets. We had a kid with us so we moved on quickly after we saw what we wanted to see.

    Fenway has been on list for fifty years and I finally made it. It did not disappoint. My wife and I caught two games and thoroughly enjoyed the park and the neighborhood. There have been many upgrades in recent years, so the park was actually more current and comfortable than I expected. We also enjoyed the fans and staff we encountered. Everyone was friendly and helpful and didn't seem to mind that we were pulling for the visiting team. This is a must visit for any baseball fan. To be completely honest, it was a pretty emotional experience. If you go, stay at The Verb--great, fun hotel.

    The amazing view makes the hike worth it!!
    We went to Diamond Head Crater our first day in Hawaii. It was hot, but definitely worth it! We saw birds and got our first amazing views of Oahu, the city of Honolulu, the beach, and the mountains. Take water, stay hydrated, and keep climbing! You can do it!

    An intimate tribute to the thousands of men who served upon the longest serving aircraft carrier. Tour every part of the Midway following the signs and arrows pointing the way. Be prepared for several tight passageways, stairs and close quarters. We spent three hours there and could have stayed longer. The flight deck is packed with a wide variety of planes of interest. The audio listeners are a great asset to enhancing the tour. Gift shop. See part of the filming set for Top Gun. Special recognition to the Yellow Hats docents who are former members who served on the Midway.

    Stunningly beautiful exhibition. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The professional photographer taking photos of us with the actual exhibit in the background was a huge bonus, especially as it was included in the admission

    We want to thank our tour guide Amanda. There were only a few of us in the party, which was great. It was truly a private tour. Amanda was extremely knowledgeable. Her anecdotes, in addition to description of the exhibits made this experience very enjoyable and educational. The museum is so huge. It was good to have someone so familiar with the exhibit highlights.

    We visited the botanical garden just the other day. It definately is a nice place to be and well spent time. What bothers me is that compared to the Aquarium the price seems to be quite high. If you happen to live in Atlanta of course the whole year family pass is a great option.
