In Baltimore visit the biggest collection of Matisse works in the world at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Alternatively, drop in on one of the live shows at the Haborplace Amphitheater for free performances from a variety of entertainers. If neither of those is your fancy, take the Mount Vernon Cultural Walk where you will see 24 different famous landmarks, restaurants and stores.
Washington D.C brings a similar but still different energy. Here the green traveler can tour the three houses of government — a real rush for all those politics aficionados. See an outdoor concert at the Wolftrap Farm Park or explore the Dupont Circle.
In New York City where everyone and thing always seems full of energy, there are always many activities. With a light jacket, you can still laze around Central Park in the fall. At that time it is sure to be gorgeous with the falling gold, yellows and oranges. It is rumored that you’ll find the best pizza at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, located under the Brooklyn Bridge. While pulling on strings of mozzarella, you can sigh over one of the most scenic views of Manhattan.
