Washington, New York and BostonThis 11-night suggested itinerary combines three interesting US cities into one trip on the East Coast. See iconic buildings, explore world renowned visitor attractions, shop until you drop and experience unique culinary delights.  With excellent rail links it is easy to travel between the three cities, either in the following order or in reverse.

 

Day 1 Washington DC: Arrive in Washington DC; the Nation’s capital and the hub of the USA administration.  From its celebrated symbols of patriotism to its undiscovered neighbourhoods, the sights and sounds of the nation’s capital inspire millions of visitors every year. Packed with famous sights, free attractions, and an endless calendar of special events, Washington DC offers year-round inspiring experiences. Beyond Washington DC’s most familiar vistas, the capital city unwinds into a lively urban centre.  Casual cafes and upscale bistros line the trendy streets of Georgetown, while the downtown district sizzles with a host of new restaurants. Spontaneous Jazz notes tumble out the windows of U Street’s nightclubs, while world-class performers take the stage at the highly acclaimed Kennedy Center. Kayakers tackle the Potomac River as it winds past the elegant marble tributes to America’s great leaders.

4 nights in Washington

Day 5 New York City: Travel by Amtrak train to New York City. Of all the cities ever featured anywhere in any travel publication, surely New York must be the one that needs no introduction!  The ‘Big Apple’ sets the adrenalin pumping at the merest mention of the name, and add to this images of the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Madison Square Garden, the Rockefeller Centre and so many more, and suddenly you need to be there, experiencing the buzz of this vibrant city.  The very ground you walk on is throbbing with activity and excitement.  Take a loop tour to acquaint yourself with the different areas of Manhattan, and then lose yourself in trendy Greenwich Village and Soho.  Visit the iconic stores of Macy’s and Bloomingdales or wander through Central Park.

4 nights in New York

 

Day 9 Boston: Travel by Amtrak train to Boston.  The home of the famous Boston Tea Party and gateway to New England. Boston is an intriguing mix of the historic (by American standards) and the modern, with high-rise modern buildings giving way to the quaint side streets of a former time.  The Freedom Trail, the red line in the pavement, takes the visitor on a walking trail around the main attractions of the city – or jump on one of the city tours to get your bearings.

Day 12: Depart Boston for your onward or homeward journey.

 

Optional extra: Philadelphia

Turn three cities into four by slotting in a stay in Philadelphia between Washington DC and New York. Philadelphia is Perhaps not at the top of everyone’s list, but none-the-less an interesting city, and well worth a visit.  Most famously known as the birthplace of American democracy, a visit to Philadelphia should include a trip the Liberty Bell Centre and Independence Hall – a quick call at the Visitor Centre will set you on your way.  If retail therapy is for you, then Philadelphia is a must as there is no sales tax on clothing and shoes.  For those visitors not in the first bloom of youth, you may remember Sylvester Stallone’s epic climb of the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Arts in the first Rocky movie way back in the 70’s!
