Visit three of America’s most famous cities on this incredible holiday to the East Coast of the USA. You’ll start in Boston, a historic university city beats with a youthful heart and is surely one of the friendliest cities in America travelling to New York and experience the city that never sleeps. Your USA city break holiday then finishes in the nations capital, Washington DC.
Boston is the perfect city to explore on foot, dotted with hip and trendy neighbourhoods, modern skyscrapers and historic monuments all within easy walking distance of one another. One great way to explore Boston is to follow the Freedom Trail. Starting at Boston Common the 2.5-mile (4km) trail links 16 historic sights associated with the early struggle for freedom from British control and the events leading up to the American revolution. Just across the Charles River from Boston is Cambridge, home to two of the most prestigious third level institutions in the world, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. Thanks to its large student population Cambridge has a young and vibrant atmosphere.
Many of New York’s most famous visitor attractions are very familiar to us but nothing compares to seeing them first hand. Take the Staten Island Ferry and sail past Liberty Island. Seeing the Statue of Liberty up close is a very different experience to seeing it on TV. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the West Village, where the NYC street grid is suspended and bohemian culture, art, music and funky restaurants thrive. New York has so much to offer, there is always something to see or do. Enjoy as much as you can before it’s time to head to Boston. You can fly or take the train and take in views of the New England coastline.
Washington is a city of history but it also buzzes with lively cafes and restaurants, great shopping and lots of fun things to do. The Georgetown neighbourhood is home to some of the city’s most notable residents, and of course, culinary gems waiting to be discovered. Food lovers will relish a visit to Georgetown where you can stroll off-the-beaten path and find delicious treats at the local eateries.

Washington - The handwritten sign above the register in Bens Chili Bowl lists Barack Obama as the only customer who can eat for free. But you can sup inexpensively at this city signature, where the famous chili half-smoke is $5.45.
