This great nation was founded in Philadelphia. Take the train north and you can be at the liberty bell in no time at all. Tour independence hall, Betsy Rosa house, Ben Franklin site, etc.

Funny, born there, nice. You can combine that with G'Burg.

Ditto all the suggestions above.

The guided tour in Gettysburg is excellent and combining it with Amish country is an excellent idea.

Baltimore has the Inner Harbor-tall ships and the National Aquarium, but if it were me, I'd spend my time elsewhere. Annapolis is beautiful and historic and nearby.

DC- the spy museum is fun and near Ford's theater. I highly recommend going to Mount Vernon. There's so much to see in DC you'll have to choose what not to see!

If you want to see a different part of the rural east, consider Monticello and/or James Madison's Montpelier, which has only been restored in the past 15 years, and is a little closer. It is a bit of a drive, but a beautiful one.

It all depends on what interests you. Good luck deciding what to do.

If I were to pick just one additional destination, probably Mount Vernon, for it's history and scenery. But also add Amish country to your Gettysburg tour. Take highway 30 east from Gettysburg and you're there.

Will definitely add Annapolis to our "must see" list.

Thank you!

I w*rked in Baltimore city on North Ave for almost 15 years. Suggest you do not venture far (more than a block or two) from the inner harbor on foot. Right in the inner harbor is safe, there also is (was?) a Brazilian restaurant Fogo de Chao. If still open, highly recommended. The Hard Rock Cafe is also there, can be pretty amusing. There was an old diesel submarine tied up in the pier, for a few bucks can go below and explore. Little Italy as someone has noted is charming. I don't know if still as fun as it used to be.

BTW if you want to know where North Ave is, look it up on the map, That is where the recent riots were.

There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.
