Trip Report Our first time New York and Washington DC

Jump to last reply

I have recently returned from my first trip to the USA, a week each in New York and Washington. My sincere thanks for all the advice I received from members of the Fodor’s community.

It was a trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We had a fabulous time in both cities. We pretty much did just touristy things, so there is very little new or insightful in what follows.

A brief summary:

Flew into JFK with BA, It took about 80 minutes to get through customs and border control, but nowhere near as difficult or confrontational as I had feared.

We took a taxi to the Upper East Side which was an experience (sudden lane changes, seemingly random selection of roads, systematic horn abuse, cutting through quite neighbourhoods to avoid congestion - probably all normal cabbie behaviour, but made me glad I wasn't having to drive)

We arrived in glorious weather, dropped off bags and set off to orientate ourselves. After a short walk we got to Central Park and found it so marvellous we just walked around for the next couple of hours until dusk.

I cannot emphasize how much I enjoyed the park, throughout our visit. I just loved the varied nature of different parts of the park, and that there seems something interesting around every corner. The Saturday evening because of the beautiful weather seemed really busy - hundreds of picnics, ballgames, family outings etc. happening everywhere.

As it approached 9pm, the 5 hour time difference started to take effect, and we didn't feel like finding a restaurant, so we got a takeaway pizza (indifferent) and some beer, and ate back at the apartment.
