Itinerary Breakdown

From the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building, New York has carved an envious niche as one of the greatest urban experiences on the planet and the most quintessential city break destination ever. Within this cornucopia of communities, New Yorkers are proud that their city can boast one of the greatest cultural experiences to be had anywhere in the world. Everyone, at least once in their lives should have the opportunity to experience the magic of this metropolis. The Big Apple will leave you open-mouthed with wonder. If you ever get the opportunity, do not let it pass you by.

Located 90 miles to the south of the Big Apple, Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love and birthplace of American democracy. This is where the Declaration of Independence was signed and where the Constitution was declared publicly. Philly has a fascinating past. It was the nations capital until 1790 when power then transferred to Washington DC. Enjoy scenic walks through Fairmont Park; the worlds largest city park, dip into Chinatown or sample the European quality of the Italian market. The city has many trendy shops, bars and restaurants to rival anything that its bigger brother can offer. You've seen it in the Rocky movies (those famous steps) now see it for yourself.

Washington DC (District of Columbia) is the seat of American democracy and your opportunity to see the monuments and landmarks such as the White House and the Jefferson Memorial that have helped shape western political ideals. Washington is an easy city to walk through and it's also remarkably pretty too. The Smithsonian Institution includes 19 museums of inestimable knowledge. The President, Congress and the Supreme Court reside in the capital, so for those who are fascinated by political history this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you want to take a tour of the White House, ensure you reserve tickets at least one month prior to your visit.
