Washington DC or Chicago and Orlando or Miami

Hi

I can only visit 2 more cities in USA ( given I dont get a lot of vacation from work). I've already visited NYC and Niagara Falls.

Im planning something near the east coast ( preferred ). I plan to visit in December.. ( for tourism purposes )

I thought

either Chicago or Washinton DC

and Miami or Orlando..

Read all over internet.

What's ur suggestion ? I cant visit all because of limited holidays I have and limited budget !! SUggestion please

I'd pick DC/Miami, but I go to Chicago all the time and have always wanted to go to DC...and isn't stuff free in DC?

Well, Chicago is nowhere near the East Coast and Washington DC is...so DC would probably make more sense for the whole East Coast thing. Also, Chicago can be almost unbearably cold in December. I'm not sure about the weather in DC. It's probably pretty damn cold there too in December. That being said, Chicago is the greatest city in the world so you really can't go wrong with it. Make sure to pack your heaviest winter coat, though.

Skip Orlando unless you have a Disney fetish.

I enjoyed some spontaneous wacky adventures in Orlando with strangers the last time I was there. Universal has some sweet rides, and at night the upper deck is a strip with night clubs. Going to theme parks is really all I did though, and if it weren't for my discount from the conference I played hooky from, it could've been super expensive.

DC has loads of stuff to do for free! I used to live there, so I'm sort of biased, but there is so much going on. While you're there pick up a copy of the express to find info on events taking place and such.

December is cold, skip Chicago.

Orlando is like some kind of suburban nightmare aside from WDW. So unless you want to go see the Mouse, go to Miami. And if you have time, drive out to Key West - now that is a trip that's worth it.

Definitely.

Go Orlando/DC or Chicago/DC.

All Miami has got going for it is Miami Beach, The Dolphins, being an extension of Cuba, and cocaine.

Chicago is a great city but I would recommend visiting when the weather is warm. Already it's getting pretty damn cold here.

You can't go wrong with visting DC it's pretty cool there

DC is great and they have stuff to do for free, which is always a plus. So put DC on for one of the places that you should go to.

DC absolutely. All the Smithsonian museums are free, and you could spend a week in some of them and not see everything. I highly recommend the Air and Space and American History museums. The zoo is also very nice and free, as well.
