You can throw in the world if you want, but I am planning an East Coast vacation for the kids and they want to tour some older churches. I assume the oldest would be on the East Coast.

One of my coworkers recently visited St. Francis Xavier church in Maryland which was claiming to be the oldest Catholic church in America that is still standing. In Ohio we have 3 Catholic churches that claim to be the first in the Northwest Territory. So as you see, many make those kinds of claims, but it is often difficult to ferret out which was really "first" (this applies to many things of course, not just churches). I would suggest looking at the tourism sites of the cities/areas you will be visiting to see which churches they recommend to visitors.
