Highlights of USA & Canada East Coast 10 Days

$2,499.00

New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Niagara Falls, Toronto, Albany, New York

After flying to into New York you'll visit West Point military academy, established by Thomas Jefferson in 1801, with the opportunity for a guided tour of this leading institution of United States foreign policy. Following a visit to the Woodbury Premium Outlet for some shopping, on return to NYC you will have a choice of several Broadway shows to attend. The following day is packed with visits to iconic New York City landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. Finish the day off with popcorn and hotdogs at a live NBA basketball game, if you wish. On to Philadelphia, where you will see the Liberty Bell, thought to have been rung after the first reading of the United States Declaration of Independence in 1776. Keeping with the political theme, you will next visit Washington DC and view a number of important landmarks such as the White House, Lincoln Memorial, and the memorials to Americans who died in the Korean and Vietnam wars.

After all of this history, exercise your sweet tooth at Herseys Chocolate World and then lighten things up with an optional visit to the Corning Glass museum. Next day, you'll head to Toronto, and be amazed by the famed Niagara Falls, with the opportunity to also experience Canadian National Tower, one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World. The Canadian Thousand Island region is a charming, lesser-known attraction, and after an optional cruise through the 1,864 islands on the St. Lawrence River border between the US and Canada, you'll continue on into New York State. The following day, visit the New York State Capitol building before heading to the airport for your flight home.

Musicals, slapstick and drama have been performed on the Great White Way for decades and you are depriving yourself if you don’t take one in.
Follow the footsteps to independence in Philadelphia and view see the Liberty Bell.

At noon enjoy an optional signature Lunch at Skylon Tower Revolving Dining Room# offering panoramic views of the whole Niagara Falls region.

Then, cross the border at Thousand Islands Bridge and enter the United States. Continue onto Albany, the capital of New York State.
This morning, visit New York State Capitol, which has served as the seat of government for New York since the 1880s.
