A road trip across America always sounds so idyllic; nothing but the open road, endless diners and Jack Kerouac in the back seat. Unfortunately, unless the world’s biggest ball of string is your cup of tea (yes it does exist in Branson Missouri) there isn’t much to do on that eternal roadway. The city stops along the way are the highlights, so plan with care.
New York is the perfect place to start your trip. Most people in the city don’t drive so once you land you don’t need to pick up the rental car immediately and can save a bit of cash. Stops in Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia will school you on all the US history you could want. Then discover southern hospitality in New Orleans, Atlanta, Dallas and Houston, where big hair and cowboy boots are mandatory. Finish off on the West Coast. Play in the sun and learn to surf in Southern Cali. Walk the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, while resisting the urge to call is San Fran. Cap it off with Hollywood tours and shopping in LA. Have extra time? Head up to Seattle for a cup of joe or over to Arizona to enjoy some desert air.
As the first capital of the early USA, New York has some of the most amazing architecture. See how colonial America functioned back before skyscrapers were erected. Archaeology tours offer a new perspective on the historical trip. Gain access to private artefact collections and piece together the past.
Shopping is something the US does in its own special way. Shopping malls line almost every street and shopping tours help tourists manage money and time while they shop. Buy souvenirs, have lunch and see a movie all within one building. Some shopping tours even offer more bang for the buck. The Dallas shopping tour includes admission to the Dallas Museum of Art.
San Francisco’s Chinatown is an exclusive area where the American Chinese culture is highly valued. As the culinary capital of the US, almost every restaurant is top notch. North Beach offers more expensive fare, usually with a Californian/Mexican twist while Chinatown serves up dim sum and a culture of its own. Touring Chinatown and North Beach gives you the best of California.
Home to the Field Museum, an interactive museum where you can observe space and earth from the perspective of a scientist. Meet Sue the largest T-Rex fossil and explore Egypt’s tombs with larger than life installations. Ascend to the top of the world at the Hancock Tower and see four states at once! Tours and city passes make seeing cities with endless attractions, such as Chicago, a breeze!
