Your United States travel itinerary:
Days 1 - 2: Boston
Board your classic San Francisco-style trolley and discover Boston’s Freedom Trail and Faneuil Hall Marketplace, with a stop off at the 450,000 paintings and sculptures in the Museum of Fine Arts and the Seaport District. Choose to ascend the dizzy heights of Boston’s Skywalk Observatory or watch the waddling penguins at the excellent New England Aquarium. After all that sightseeing, relax and refresh in one of the city’s trendy restaurants, perhaps trying a steaming bowl of classic New England clam chowder.
Days 3 - 4: New York
Spend some time uncovering the delights of NYC, the most exciting city in the world. You’ll never be bored as there is so much to do here – a few of our favourite attractions include wandering past the flowers and art exhibits of the elevated High Line, soaking up the views from the top of the Empire State Building and re-enacting Breakfast at Tiffany’s on 5th Avenue. Once you’ve taken in the sights, watch the New York skyline come alive after dark on your sunset Harbor Lights Cruise.
Days 5 - 6: Washington DC
Take the train to Washington DC, the capital of the United States. From Capitol Hill and the Smithsonian to the Lincoln Memorial and the White House, DC is home to some of the USA’s most significant landmarks. But it’s not just history and heritage – Washington DC is also contemporary and cool, offering world-class dining and nightlife along with designer shopping precincts from Penn Quarter to Georgetown. Hop on board an open-air trolley and see the city’s monuments illuminated at night.
Days 7 - 8: San Francisco
Fly to San Francisco and take the morning ferry to Alcatraz Island to learn more about the legendary prison that once housed Al Capone. Spend the afternoon exploring the sights and sounds of San Francisco, including the lively Fisherman’s Wharf, the huge Golden Gate Park and the steep and winding Lombard Street. Perhaps walk or cycle across the 1.7-mile Golden Gate Bridge for far-reaching views of the bay.
Days 9 - 10:
Depart San Francisco and return to the UK.
