WEEKEND TRIP: NEW YORK CITY

Sightsee two of the most iconic New York symbols — in the very same afternoon!  After visiting the 102nd floor of the One World Observatory to enjoy the million dollar view of Manhattan, take a ferry to Ellis Island and see the Statue of Liberty right there at its foundation. With over 30 trips each weekend to New York City, Boston, and Washington, D.C., you'll find something to do that you've never done before.

At EXPLO I finally found people like me. Other people who were interested in learning and exploring. I owe my successes today to EXPLO. If I had not gone to EXPLO, I doubt I would be the same person I am today.
