2 Flushing Meadows-Corona Park
Flushing Meadows-Corona Park

Flushing, NY 11368

Standing in the lush grass of this park, you'd never imagine that it was once a swamp and a dumping ground. But the gleaming Unisphere (an enormous 140-foot-high steel globe) might tip you off that this 1,255-acre park was also the site of two World's Fairs.

Many New Yorkers head to a specific attraction, such as a Mets game or the science museum, not realizing the many discoveries to be made nearby. But savvy visitors can take advantage of "one-stop park shopping." Here are not only typical grassy knolls, barbecue pits, and sports fields, but also an art museum, a petting zoo, golf and minigolf, and even a model-plane field. It is too large to see everything in one day, so aim to hit a few primary spots. Though several destinations are clustered together on the northwest side of the park, be prepared for long peaceful walks in between. The flat grounds are ideal for family biking; rent bikes near the park entrance or Meadow Lake from March to October. Although the park is great in daytime, avoid visiting once it gets dark; there has been some crime in this area. Subway: 7 to 111th St. or Willets Point.

3 The Franklin Institute
The Franklin Institute
20th St. and Benjamin Franklin Pkwy.
Philadelphia, PA 19103

Founded more than 175 years ago to honor Benjamin Franklin, this science museum is as clever as its namesake, thanks to an abundance of dazzling hands-on exhibits. To make the best use of your time, study the floor plan before exploring. You can sit in the cockpit of a T-33 jet trainer, trace the route of a corpuscle through the world's largest artificial heart (15,000 times life size), and ride to nowhere on a 350-ton Baldwin steam locomotive. You'll also be able to explore Sir Isaac's Loft,

which combines lessons in art and science, delve into the mechanics of more than two-dozen mechanical devices in

Amazing Machine,

and see Franklin's famous lightning rod. One don't-miss: the 30-foot-tall statue of Franklin.

The Franklin Air Show

celebrates powered flight with the Wright Model B Flyer.

The Sports Challenge

conveys the physics, physiology, and material science behind your favorite sport by simulating surfing, climbing a rock wall, and comparing your sneakers to Shaquille O'Neal's size 22s. The

Fels Planetarium

—which has a state-of-the-art aluminum dome, lighting and sound systems, and a related astronomy exhibit, "Space Command"—has shows about the stars, space exploration, comets, and other phenomena.

Franklin Theater

is a venue for 3-D films. The

Mandell Center

includes the Tuttleman IMAX Theater, with a 79-foot domed screen and a 56-speaker sound system; recent movies include

Star Trek, Van Gogh: Brush with Genius,

and

Pulse: A Stomp Odyssey

.
