Day6- A day spent in The Met Musuem

I guess one of the must-do activities in NYC is to visit their museums. We decided to spend half of our day to visit the famous The Met Museum. We didn't manage to visit all the exhibitions, only partly, because it is really super huge, and it will normally take you at least 3 days to finish the whole museum. The entry free is pay as you wish, but the recommended full admission is $25 per adult. We were very lucky on that day as the staffs assumed we were students(haha maybe we really look young!), so we only paid US$12/person.

Say goodbye to the Windy Chicago, next we are heading to the wonder city--the city that We have seen thousand times on the screens. We have planned to stay in NYC for 11 days after our road trip on Route 66 and visited the national parks.

The legendary Historic Route 66 takes you from Grant Park Chicago to Santa Monica Pier. It becomes a shadow of its former self as the new highway system was built in 1980’s bypassing most of the towns located along the route. Sometimes you need to drive on the highway to get to the next town, but there are a few old towns that cling to the not so distant past and you can still drive along the old route to follow the history. The Historic Route 66 road trip took us about 6 days (about 3500km) and we stopped by about 15 towns throughout the whole journey. 

 

We landed at Los Angeles, the destination of our road trip was Chicago, which supposed to be the beginning of the Route 66. We planned spending 1 week to visi...
