The US has so many great places to see and visit. If you decide to travel around before or after camp, here are some great places to explore! 


The Golden Gate Bridge has been seen and photographed in movies, commercials, advertisements and vacation pictures making it the most visited bridge in the entire world. Walking and biking program are available, just don’t forget to bring a camera and jacket.


Lights, camera, action! You never know what will happen next when you visit Hollywood – “The Entertainment Capital of LA”.

There is so much to see and do, you definitely won’t be able to do it all in 1 day. Some of the more popular attractions are studio program and movie-based theme park. Lines can be long, especially in the high season so be prepared for a long and adventurous day!


Spend a day walking around the largest museum in the Western Hemisphere. Boasting over 2 million items from around the world, it’s no wonder that there were over 6 million visitors in 2012 making it the most popular tourist site in New York.


Take me out to the ball game! Fenway Park first broke ground in 1912 and since then has undergone many updates. Located right in the heart of downtown Boston, this historical place would be a great place to visit.
