Day: 1-2 New York Area & Washington DC
We head out of the New York area onto Washington DC, the perfect introduction to the social, cultural and political history of the United States. Explore the best of America's Capitol - from the Smithsonian to the Lincoln Memorial on the guided tour. During the day the city is awash with greenery so once you're done with sightseeing, go people watching in the parks. Why not take advantage of the great nightlife in Georgetown!
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 3 Appalachian Mountains
From the Shenandoah to the lush, natural beauty of the Appalachians - this super-sized, 1500 mile mountain chain is awesome for camping and superb for stretching the legs. Also home to the American black bear and former haunt of the Cherokee Indians!
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 4-5 Tennessee & Mississippi
Welcome to the Deep South. Time for some excitement! Choose to don a lifejacket, grip a paddle and bounce along a churning stretch of white water, for pure adrenalin. Then head through Mississippi and tune in to local radio stations for a foot-tapping southern soundtrack of rhythm and blues!
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 6-7 New Orleans
Now we're talking all that jazz! We head into the enchanting French Quarter of New Orleans! Hear the real deal at Preservation Hall, echoing with chirpy trumpet and smooth sax or sample a Hurricane at Pat O'Brien's! New Orleans has more than just food, drink and music to offer. Do the Huckleberry Finn thing as you chug along the Mississippi River. Then look for gators on the included Louisiana swamp tour through the mysterious bayous of Cajun country.
Accommodation: 2 nights en-route hotel paid locally

Day: 8-9 Panama City Beach
Then on to the Gulf of Mexico's 'Southern Riviera' - Panama City. Dream of lazy beach days or windsurf and jet ski the afternoon away. Pack dancing shoes with your flip-flops as the party spirit simmers far into the small hours at the hippest, hottest haunts of the Gulf Coast. Tomorrow may be the perfect day to recover on the beach and soak up the sun.
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 10 Florida Coast
We head further along the Florida Coast keeping our eyes peeled for that perfect beach stop. Another day, another chance to work on your tan in the Sunshine State.
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 11-13 Orlando
Forget your age, Disneyworld is included and it makes a big kid of one and all. With three nights here, fitting in extra thrills and spills is a piece of cake. Slip-slide around Wet 'n' Wild, be drenched by killer whales at SeaWorld or cross the final frontier at Kennedy Space Center. Who wants to grow up anyhow?
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 14 Miami
Seek out SoBe (aka South Beach) to stroll the art deco seafront or pose with the beautiful people on sugary sand and in ultra-cool nightspots. Magnificent Miami beckons with miles of white beaches and palm trees swaying in the breeze...

Tours ends at approx 17:00 hrs in Miami on day 14.
