Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Boston

Arrive into historic Boston, home of Harvard and the Red Sox. Spend the evening discovering the city's diverse restaurant scene, with delicious Italian, Oriental and fresh seafood all on the menu; or drop by the famous Cheers bar to check out whether it really is the place where everybody knows you name. Stay 3 nights at the Westin Boston Waterfront (or similar).

Day 2 - 3: Boston

Get under the skin of America's 'walking city'. There's a patchwork of interesting districts to explore, like Beacon Hill with its narrow, gas-lit streets, as well as a string of green spaces that make up Boston's 'Emerald Necklace'. Ride an iconic swan boat on the lagoon in the Public Garden then follow the Freedom Trail to discover a hatful of key historical sites along America's road to independence. Don't miss the chance to visit the hallowed courtyards and museums of the USA's top university while you're here.

Day 4: Boston - New York

Ride the Northeast Regional Amtrak service from Boston's South Station to Penn Station in the heart of Manhattan. Feel the buzz of the big city and grab the chance to spot some of the Big Apple's stand-out landmarks en route to your hotel. Stay 3 nights at the Holiday Inn New York City - Wall Street (or similar).

Day 5 - 6: New York

Spend two full days experiencing all that the ‘City that Never Sleeps' has to offer. Take the elevator to the top of the Empire State Building for eye-popping views over Manhattan. Ride the ferry to get a close-up view of Lady Liberty. Stroll through Central Park for the quintessential New York experience. Stop by the Met, the Guggenheim or MOMA for a blast of culture. Shop till you drop, catch a Broadway show and discover for yourself just why this city is so good they named it twice.

Day 7: New York - Philadelphia

Jump in a yellow cab and weave your way to Penn Station. Then sit back and relax as the train speeds you onward to Philadelphia. It's only a 70-minute journey, so you'll have plenty of time to grab a traditional Philly cheesesteak sandwich on arrival. Stay 3 nights at the Hyatt at the Bellevue(or similar).

Day 8 - 9: Philadelphia

This is the city where old meets new - the 'cradle of democracy' where a modern city skyline sits side-by-side with a clutch of historic sites key to America's birth as a nation. It's where the Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution were signed and where you can get a close-up look at the Liberty Bell at Independence Hall. It's also a city with some great art, and there's a treasure trove of masterpieces at the Museum of Art, as well as a stand-out Impressionist collection at the Barnes Foundation.

Day 10: Philadelphia - Washington DC

Catch the train from Philadelphia's famous 30th Street Station, bound for Washington DC. A journey of just an hour and three-quarters will see you in the heart of the American capital. Spend 3 nights at the Embassy Row Hotel (or similar).

Day 11 - 12: Washington DC

Washington is a happening city in every way. It's where the wheels of American politics turn and where major decisions are made on a daily basis - plus it's also got a happening bar and restaurant scene. Walking the National Mall, with its memorials to the nation's great and good, past a string of iconic US institutions including the domed Capitol Building, is a must. So is a visit to the White House and to some of the 19 amazing museums that make up the famed Smithsonian Institution.

Day 13: Depart Washington DC

It's time to check out of your hotel as your tour of the north-eastern USA's finest cities comes to a close.
