New York, New York: New York Stock Exchange
For those of you who collected passbook savings accounts instead of baseball cards or dolls, this is your kind of place. The New York Stock Exchange makes an great first impression from its location on Wall Street, as billions of dollars change hands here.
The Stock Exchange used to have a short tour available to visitors, and it included a view of the trading floor from above. However, those tours have been canceled in the post-9/11 world. You'll just have to settle for watching live reports on CNBC.
