Born in the USA

There are some places which you won't remember after you've left them. And there are some which you just can't forget when you see them. New York is one of the latter. The most populous city in the United States of America, is quite what the media makes it seem to be. The first time I went there, I left back a piece of myself there. Whenever I get a chance to get there again, I'll be the first guy you see running towards the flight (btw you get tickets for your flights to New York here).

Places including the Empire State Building, Ellis Island, Broadway theater productions, scores of museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, Washington Square Park, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden, luxury shopping along Fifth and Madison Avenues, and events such as the Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village, the Tribeca Film Festival, and free performances in Central Park at Summerstage make it the best place to take a New York Weekend Break.

There are a few other places in the US which are as hot as New York. Though one which comes to mind instantly is Orlando. You can catch a cheap flight to orlando here. In case you don't know, it is the home of artists including Anberlin, Britney Spears, Mandy Moore, NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys, as well as Sam Rivers, Creed, Trivium, From First to Last, Matchbox Twenty, Seven Mary Three, There For Tomorrow, Mark Fenlon, DJ Icey, DJ KJ of K5, DJ Baby Anne, DJ Jimmy Joslin and DJ Scotty B. Sister Hazel, For Squirrels and Less Than Jake are from nearby Gainesville, as is superstar Tom Petty.
