If you had a friend or relative come visit you from far away like another state or country or a far away town.What would be the first tourist attraction that you would show them? Depending on what season it was and how the weather was that day would reflect alot on my discision.It would also weigh a lot in on how I chose on the person and their likes and dislikes or situation. For example if it were up to me and it was a nice day and not too cold I would like to take them to the National Zoo in Washington,DC.But,if they did not like animals that would be a good idea.Nor would it be a good idea to take them there if they were in a wheel chair going up and down all the hills. However if it were nice weather and it suited the person's likes and physical ability I would like to take them to the Washington National Zoo.Or to the Reston which is on flat ground. If they were more into liking history I believe I would take them to a place where they can see a lot of things in one day.For example,The Arlington Cemetery,where they can also see The Tomb of The Unknown as well as The Arlington House,also known as the Custis-Lee Mansion.We could also look across the Potomac River and see the city of Washington,DC. Or we could go in to the city of Washington,DC where there is a lot to see,but it couldn't all happen in one day. Where would you take them? And why?

Hi Iwould take a visting friend down to Newport Beach Calif to the pacific where we could stroll on the beach, watch the pelicans and the seals, the sea gulls, pick u p seashells and visit Charlies Chili for the best Chili in California, then visit Lido Isle and Balboa island where tons of movie stars live and all the very wealthy of wealthiest. then down the coast highway to the various famous city , the art colony, then to Capistrano and the mission to Dana Point where there are hundred year old sailing vessels from there on to San Onofre the nuclear power plant and Camp Pendelton. San Diego and Sea World theres so much to see its hard to think of it all. but NewPOrt Beach is a good Place to star

remembered Laguna Beach next door to Newport is an art colony and just wonderful with a board walk and must see the cove of Pelicans there tool Lots of lovely pictures at reasonable prices and art work of all kinds, many small shops worth taking time to explore. be careful of the highway as out of Laguna is winding and tricky and foolhardy drivers go off the cliffs as they drive too fast. beautiful scenic route safe if you drive at normal speeds. error in last sentence of discussion. but NewPort beach is a good place to start.

When our relatives came here we usually tour them in our famous destinations and let them discover new places they never been seen and took some pictures on them.I also love to say something about the place that will help them to be more familiar with the place and they will appreciate it more and learn something new about it.

Every city has their famous attractions. If my friend or relative come visit my city,I will take them visit famous attractions. I will take them round Town God's Temple,there are many famous snack in it,such as small steamed bun,traditional pastry. The Oriental Pearl Tower is essential. I will take them to the shopping mall. If they like animal,seaworld is also a good choice! They can take pictures there,its scenery is beautiful.

Yes, if the weather is favorable, I would take them to the Canadian Rockies. The Banff National Park is one of the tourists' and visitors attractions in western Canada, very pleasant and very scenic. If time permits, we could spend a couple of days driving around along the Rockies.

I would love to take them to the beach. Our country is reach of beautiful white sand beaches and emerald green water. They would enjoy swimming in the clean water and the beauty under that. They would be able to see the different colors of the corals and the fish as well. The nature is what i can offer them so i would take them to hot springs, waterfalls and the beach!

Pike's Place Market because everyone always wants to see the fish toss and eat seafood unless they are from the WC already. Since it always rains in Washington, the weather would not matter. Pike's is fun anyday with its many vendors, shops, cafes and culture, it really is an experience!
