What about to take a East Coast cities sightseeing vacation with your kids and lover, to visit top spots in Norwalk, Connecticut, Princeton, New Jersey? Here're some travel guides about East Coast tours may help you.
A quiet town in Fairfield County, Norwalk is the perfect place to escape the busy and sometimes stressful nature of big cities. On the top of the list of places to see is the eclectic neighborhood of SoNo, the South Norwalk Historic District, where the maritime nature of Norwalk can be enjoyed alongside trendy restaurants, stores, and other sightseeing attractions. One of these sightseeing attractions is the Maritime Aquarium, home to over 2,000 marine mammals and fish, a research vessel called the Oceanic, special exhibits and 3D simulation rides.
The Stepping Stones Museum for Children features hand-on and interactive exhibits designed to encourage children to learn, inquire, discover and explore, while the SoNo Switch Tower Museum showcases towers used by railroads and reveals the story of “Signal Station 44.” Take a trip back in time at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, a second empire-style home built by LeGrand Lockwood in the 1860’s or visit one of the first restaurants in SoNo, Match. One excursion that should definitely not be missed is a trip to the Sheffield Island Lighthouse and Nature Trail where tourists can wander around the lighthouse and embark on a guided walk with the Norwalk Seaport Association’s Friends of the Norwalk Islands.
