I am a band director and am very fortunate to get a week off for Thanksgiving. I have been talking with a buddy of mine about heading to NYC to watch the Macy's parade for Thanksgiving. We will leave the Saturday before Thanksgiving and hope to leave NYC the day after Thanksgiving.
I have looked at seeing the main points in Washington D.C. (white house, washington memorial, lincoln memorial, etc.) and Philadelphia (independence hall, brotherly love, and art museum) while we are traveling through the neighborhood.
I'm just curious if anyone has any tips of things we should do/see while we are on that route? I took a roadtrip to Montana in June and happened across Carhenge in Nebraska on my way to Mt Rushmore. I thought this was great! I like things that are unique and off the "beaten path."
I do like to push the envelope when I head out for a roadtrip because the drive is the vacation... the parade will just be a great end to a wonderful trip! We will have to drive almost nonstop to get home in time to recuperate for work!
