Day 1: New York – Philadelphia- Washington, D.C.
Depart New York through New Jersey to the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. Arriving in the historic area of the city, you’ll visit the Liberty Bell, Independence National Park and Congress Hall. Take a walk through Elfreth’s Alley, the oldest continuously inhabited street in America. Continue on a panoramic tour of Philadelphia that includes the financial district, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Historic Philadelphia and more.
As you leave Philadelphia, you’ll get a chance to see the famous “Rocky Steps” and then continue east to the land of the Amish in Lancaster.

Afterwards, you’ll have the chance to stop at an Amish marketplace where you can shop for handmade arts crafts and products. In the late afternoon, you’ll depart east for an evening arrival in Washington, D.C. with an overnight stay at the Wyndham Garden.

Continue to the Air and Space Museum before visiting the Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Korean and Vietnam Memorials. In the late afternoon you’ll depart north for an evening arrival in New York.
