    Hi friends,

    My inlaws are here with me and as usual, planning to take them somewhere around Eastern area. Other than NY, Washinton DC is there any interesting places to see in and around Pennsylvania etc. BTW, live in New Jersey.

    Recently, heard from my friend that there is a boating spot riding in a tunnel near PA which am not sure. Pls let me know the details, if any idea abt it.

    Expecting replies from you guys!!

    Thanks and Rgds.

    around D.C

    Hi Ami,
    I live around D.C. area. Cherry blossom is beautiful around this time of the year this weekend is its peak season while you are in d.c.can visit all the museums and of course white house etc.
    There is also shenendovah valley if they can walk through the caves. My in-laws loved it when they where here a while ago. Baltimore aquarium is a wonderful palce too. WILL add more if I happen to remember.
    Regards,
    Anjana

    Thanks, thanks, infinity of thanks!!!

    Hi Jayana,

    Had been to Niagara falls, but thanks for yr prompt response.

    And, selvi, my daughter is 3 yrs old and guess that stroller is not allowed to take, isnt it?? Also, how long we have to walk inside caverns?

    That was great, anjana..have noted down whatever you have mentioned. Yes, we are planning to visit D.C, but, by June as the season has not improved fully. BTW, just now checked with my friend who said that in the border of virginia & DC, in the highway itself, there is a open tunnel which has water on both sides(just a drive only to see). Any idea on what I am talking?? Earlier, have wrongly mentioned in PA.

    Mohana, thanks for suggesting Pittsburgh. Yes, it is worth to club both WV & the said place. Guess that you are from CT. Any good place or temple to visit?? How abt Dakshinamurthy temple in PA? Is it like a proper south indian temple or what??

    Sorry pals for too many queries.

    Rgds and Thank you all once again..

    Hi Ami,
    I think you are mentioning about Chesapeake bay tunnel. I was there 2 years back.
    You can go the site www.cbbt.com The drive was very spectacular and you will
    drive under the sea. It connects the Delaware and Virginia, it is a 19 mile bay bridge and tunnel. It is worth seeing and driving.

    Another thing you asked is Dakshinamoorthy temple right? It is in Saylorsburg,PA.
    There is a Ashram of Swami Dayananda Saraswati and the temple. I was there for the last New Year. It is quiet place. You can get the details from their site
    www.arshavidya.org

    You both are my tourist chief!!

    That was great Vidhya & laksn..I was so surprised & thrilled on seeing yr immediate answers for any kind of questions. unbelievable!!!!

    The site has been so helpful, vidhya. Mere thanks is not just enough. Still, sincerely appreciate yr selfless favor in this regard.

    And, laksn, wow, the lists are so attractive and more than enough for the next few months. Though we have covered 3 to 4 already, rest of them are still yet to see. Wish that we all should stay each other to discuss minor to major things.

    Have a few queries, sorry.... castles in providence??? So, it must be indoors(silly query)?? Is there any site or can I surf in yahoo directly? Philly downtown means it is in Philadelphia and what is the specialty there? Similarly, what is that in Jamestown, VA?

    I am really really feeling bad to take this much privilege to all of you. Pls bear that.

    Pls take yr time to reply and no rush at all..

    With Sincere Regards
