Begin your holiday to America in Philadelphia, known as ‘the friendliest city’ in America. Independence National Historical Park is an eight-block historic neighbourhood in the very centre of old Philadelphia. The birthplace of America, as it was here that the Liberty Bell in Independence Hall rang out, summoning citizens to hear the first public reading of the American Declaration of Independence.

Other museums well worth a visit include the Franklin Institute Science Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art; don’t forget to have your picture taken with the famous Rocky statue out front! Philadelphia is famous for its cheesesteaks, and they are well worth a try, but thankfully the city has evolved to enjoy a foodie scene beyond junk food. The Italian Market is the oldest and largest working outdoor market in the United States, stroll around, sample some delicious food and soak up the atmosphere.

Boston is a compact city, an eclectic mix of historic monuments and modern skyscrapers interspersed with bohemian neighbourhoods. Boston is the perfect city to explore on foot with most of the major attractions within easy walking distance of one another. Boston Common holds the distinction of being the oldest park in America and is the starting point of the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile (4km) trail that links 16 historic sights associated with America’s early struggle for freedom from British control. Cambridge lies just across the Charles River from Boston and is a city in its own right. Two of the most well-known universities in the world, Harvard University and MIT, are found in Cambridge. The area is full of trendy bars, hip cafes and interesting shops and restaurants just waiting to be explored. Soak up the atmosphere with a stroll around the historic Harvard campus, visit the Peabody Museum of archaeology or simply have a coffee on Harvard Square and enjoy some time people watching.
