One of the best things about living in New York, is that surrounding the city, you can find lots of interesting cities and places to visit. Last week, I went to a organized tour to Princeton University, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and the most important Amish comunity of the States in Lancaster, and it was awesome.
First of all, you don’t need to think about how you are getting there, you just pay a tour company (in this case it was $65- which included bus, and a hotel room for a night) and they organize the rest. You have to pay for the activities you want to do, however. And sometimes, there is a lack of freedom because you don’t have enough time to visit every city as you wish, but does not matter cause you do lots of other funny things in just two days! I truly recommend you this kind of experience if you don’t have a lot of time or not many vacation days.
And, if you are reading this, and are thinking about coming to the States, there is just one answer: YES, and Architect-US is your best option, they will organize everything like the tour guides and you will just have to do two things: work and learn every day at work, and enjoy the best experience in your life.
Just like Rocky Balboa would say, don’t think it, just do it!
