Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Explore Los Angeles' surroundings by going to Anaheim (Pearson Park Amphitheatre, Astro Orbitor, & more), Chino Hills State Park (in Brea) and Newport Beach California Temple (in Newport Beach). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Walt Disney Concert Hall, take an in-depth tour of Autry Museum of the American West, admire the natural beauty at The Japanese Garden, and admire the majestic nature at Topanga State Park.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Ski Big Bear (in Lackawaxen), Tymor Park (in LaGrangeville) and Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center (in Ridgefield). The adventure continues: go for a walk through Central Park, pause for some photo ops at Double Check, see the interesting displays at Ground Zero Museum Workshop, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
