Five Free Places To Visit While In NYC

Times SquareWhen I was growing up, we used to visit New York City just about every year. I was completely clueless on the cost of the sights we would visit, but I knew there was plenty to see.  New York City has never lost its appeal to me and I think that every one should visit this city should they get the chance.  Make sure you pack a good pair of walking shoes, because that’s the way to see the city – walking through the chasms of skyscrapers amongst the bustle of people.  If you are thinking that the Big Apple is an expensive place to visit, you are right!  However, tourists need not spend an arm and a leg while you are there – you can stretch that vacation dollar!  Here are five free sites you can go to while visiting.  I’ve even included some good deals in the advertisements on this page for the locals, as well!

The Statehood Quiz: Georgia

The State of GeorgiaIt’s been awhile since I did a statehood quiz.  You can find all of them, so far, on myFiveBest.com.  This one is for the southern state of Georgia.  It’s made up of five questions about the state.  Georgia, as you may know, is the home of the Atlanta Braves, the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, and NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.  It was the fourth state to announce it’s part in the United States, which it did on January 2, 1788.  Georgia was considered a sovereign state of the Articles of Confederation (not to be confused with the Confederate States that it would belong to during the 1860s).  It has a rich history and plenty of trivia behind it.

The Statehood Quiz: New Jersey

New Jersey QuizNew Jersey was the third state admitted into the Union on December 18, 1787 – six days after Pennsylvania became the second state.  Originally called the Province of New Jersey, it was under British rule since the surrender of Fort Amsterdam in 1664, when the Dutch lost it.  Bordered by New York City and Philadelphia, New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the United States.  The area was inhabited by Native Americans for more than 2,800 years, with historical tribes such as the Lenape along the coast. In the early 17th century, the Dutch and the Swedes made the first European settlements. It was named after the largest of the British Channel Islands, Jersey, where one of its early English governors was born.  Here are five questions about the state…and if you don’t know them, you don’t know New Jersey!

The Statehood Quiz: Pennsylvania

PennsylvaniaPennsylvania was the second state to join the Union on December 12, 1787, just five days after Delaware became the first state.  Pennsylvania is technically a commonwealth.  This designation, which has no constitutional impact, emphasizes that they have a “government based on the common consent of the people” as opposed to one legitimized through their earlier Royal Colony status that was derived from the King of Great Britain. The word commonwealth in this context refers to the common “wealth” or welfare of the public.  The state borders Delaware and Maryland to the south, West Virginia to the southwest, Ohio to the west, New York and Ontario, Canada, to the north, and New Jersey to the east. The state’s four most populous cities are Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, and Erie. The state capital is Harrisburg.  Here is a quiz on America’s second state. Read more…

The Statehood Quiz: Delaware

State of DelawareDelaware is America’s first state located on the Atlantic Coast in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.  It is the second smallest state after Rhode Island. Settled by the Dutch in the 1630s, Delaware was the home of the Algonquian and the Nanticoke tribes. Delaware has a rich history that plays a great part in the founding of the United States. At first, they did not wish to break free from Britain because they traded goods with the British. However, after excessive taxes started arising, the people of Delaware joined the Revolutionary cause and were instrumental in the success of the young nation. Read more…
