Visit two of America’s most iconic East Coast cities of New York and Boston in this multi-centre trip. While both cities are diverse and historic, New York and Boston both have their unique qualities which allow you to experience two different worlds in the same holiday.
Begin your East Coast city break in New York, famously known as the Big Apple. Here you’ll be mesmerised by the iconic landmarks you’ll visit, many of which are recognizable from the films and television series that feature New York as the backdrop.
In Boston, swap the bright lights of New York for the city’s laid back and relaxed atmosphere. With a charming town like nature, Boston feels more relaxed after a visit to the Big Apple.
Visiting both cities in one trip is a special experience which allows you to contrast the vibrant and chaotic atmosphere of New York with the culturally rich New England allure of Boston.
With so much to see and do in both exciting American cities, make sure to plan your days and book attraction tickets ahead of time so you can experience all that New York and Boston have to offer to the fullest. Both New York and Boston are also home to world class shopping opportunities, so make sure to keep some room in your luggage for a haul of goodies.
- Experience the bright lights and world famous sights of New York
- Immerse yourself in the friendly and welcoming charm of Boston
- Watch a spectacular show in a theatre in New York’s Broadway
- Dine on scrumptious seafood in Boston, such as the local clam chowder

New York City
Famously known as the city that never sleeps, in New York you’ll be overwhelmed at the wealth of sights to see and things to do.
First timers should head up to the top of the iconic Empire State Building to admire glittering views of the sprawling city below. And a visit to the dazzling neon lights and gigantic billboards of Times Square and Broadway are a must.
Where better to watch a spectacular show than the theatres of Broadway? From The Lion King to The Book of Mormon, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to experiencing lively and animated shows on stage.
No visit to New York would be complete without visiting the ultimate Big Apple landmark up close – the Statue of Liberty. Embark on a boat tour to visit the lady that so famously dominates the city skyline. You’ll also have the chance to visit Ellis Island, where you can uncover New York’s multicultural past.
Just a three and a half-hour train or car ride away is the historic Boston, one of the county’s oldest cities.
The charming New England city was witness to many significant historical events, such as the infamous Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party and you’ll have plenty of chances to learn more about the history of the area. Easily navigable on foot, discover America’s fascinating colonial past as you roam the city streets. You’ll pass the Freedom Trail, where you can uncover the city’s famous historical events in depth.
There’s so much more to Boston than just its past. Foodies should sample traditional New England clam chowder which is dished up in many of the city’s restaurants and eateries. Sports fans will also love watching a Red Sox baseball game at Fenway Park stadium, or on television in one of the city’s buzzy bars.
For more city sights, take a walk to the University Town Cambridge, which is home to the famous and well maintained grounds of Harvard.
