The Merchant House is a taste of Old New York in the East Village and a place I had walked past a thousand times without giving a second thought that something historic was right in front of me.
This is a recommended visit for families and fans of magic. You can plan to spend about 1/2 hour in the museum.
The New York City Fire Museum is a recommended visit for families and people visiting the city on a weekend looking for an activity that will take about one hour.
Located in Long Island City, next to the East River, the museum does take a little effort to get there but the the traveler will be happily rewarded.
New York has some distinct historical advantages. If you wanted to visit the final resting place of our 18th President, Ulysses S. Grant, simply head to 122nd Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
I spent half a weekend afternoon in Queens eating, drinking (coffee) and snapping pics along the way. I think I have a great 2 stop trip in the borough the next time you have friends and family in town.

Most people who visit Nashville make sure to trek down Broadway and visit the Country Music Hall of Fame. But for those who manage to break away from the quintessential country-themed highlights of Music City, Nashville houses some truly exceptional museums and art galleries:
At the turn of the 20th century, Nashville was home to a mere 80,000 people — the city was much smaller than the vibrant and growing 21st-century metropolis. But a lot of beautiful Art Deco architecture from the early 20th century remains downtown, you just have to look up above street level to notice these buildings. This walking tour is about 1.5 miles one-way, and starts at The Frist Center for the Visual Arts at 919 Broadway.
We put together 2 date suggestions for each of the 5 boroughs. Whether you are planning for Valentine’s day or just a weekend outing with that special someone, this list has you covered.
