Pleiades

The Pleiades or Seven Sisters is an open star cluster not far from the group of stars called Orion and the Milky Way.

Orion has a distinctive shape and is fairly easy to find. From there you should be able to find the Pleiades. Look out for them in the evening sky in winter. A telescope shows there are several hundred stars in the Pleiades. If you can get far away from city lights you will be well rewarded by seeing the Milky Way.
