Overview

Get a taste of historical highlights from where it all began in Philadelphia to the pulse of American politics in Washington, D.C. to a peek at its future at Epcot Center in Orlando.  It’s an exciting jaunt that kicks off in the city that never sleeps, New York City, and its world-famous skyscrapers. No American Heritage tour would, of course, leave out Philadelphia, the birthplace of America, where you’ll visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. You’re sure to breathe in more history in colonial Virginia with Roanoke, Thomas Jefferson’s plantation home, Monticello, the romantic Antebellum city of Savannah, the tree-lined streets and sweet-smelling garden plazas of Charleston, and one of the nation’s oldest cities, St. Augustine where the Fountain of Youth was once said to be hiding (maybe for you to find). Also, waiting for you are the magnificent Smokey Mountains and its rich Cherokee Indian heritage, the lush Shenandoah Valley, and the Everglades with its teeming flora and fauna, including its famous alligators. End your tour in modern Miami.

Today, arrive in New York City, known as the Big Apple. Transfer independently to your hotel.
