    You have an additional <body> and <div id="container"> in your code. Remove the ones surrounding your image gallery. An id can only be used once on a page and the body is the generic container -again, can be used only once.

    To help with the load times you should really take those images back to Photoshop and optimize them for the web.  Right now you are displaying images that are 3072x2304 at 244x188.

    You also need to remove the closing tags at the end of </section> that relate to the ones you just removed. I.e. </div> and </body>.

     

    You will need to create a new CSS rule - header{float:left, width:??;} where your width could be 100% or whatever you need it to be. Then add float:left into your #maincontent CSS and also give it a width. This should align the elements.

    You've still got 2 <body> opening tags and you are reusing a <div> id.

     

    <body>

    <div id="container">

      <header id="Logo">

      <hgroup>

        <h1>New City Explorer</h1>

        <h2>Top 10 things to do in a city</h2>

        </hgroup>

        <nav>

          <ul>

            <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>

            <li><a href="aboutus.html">About Us</a></li>

            <li><a href="destinations.html">Destinations</a></li>

            <li><a href="links.html">Links</a></li>

            <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>

          </ul>

        </nav>

      </header>

    <body>

    <div id="container">

    You can find a lot of those errors yourself by validating the page here:

    http://validator.w3.org/

    Until you fix those main errors, tough to do much with the page.

    Best wishes,
