1 New York City to Washington DC via Philadelphia
Welcome to The Big Apple! Here in stylish New York, we'll do our meet 'n greets before heading to the Nation's capital. We couldn't swing by Philly without stopping for some quintessential cheesesteak sandwiches on the way. Take it all in as we touch down in the beating heart of this great nation. Jam-packed with museums & monuments, we'll all but conquer the endless galleries, tasty eats & historical sites in this amazing city. (D)
2 Washington DC
Today we'll get stuck into DC, visiting the world famous Smithsonian museums and soaking up a fascinating all-American story. (B)
3 Washington DC to Richmond
Leaving DC behind, we're off to Richmond, aka RVA. Capital of the commonwealth of Virginia & home to the iconic University of Virginia Richmond is one of America's quintessential college towns - all pretty brick row houses, a buzzing street art scene and nitro-fuelled nightlife. We'll spend the day sightseeing, checking out the State Capital, historic Monument Avenue and the Poe museum, before hitting the town if you feel like it. (B/D)
4 Richmond to Asheville
Richmond, you've been good to us, but North Carolina beckons. We'll leave Richmond behind and head to the hip mountain town of Asheville, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Known for its vibrant arts scene, foodie culture and historic architecture we have two days to explore. Today we'll cruise through the Blue Ridge Mountains, check out the downtown, the Montford District and the Thomas Wolfe district and more. (B)
5 Asheville
Today we'll take a delectable foodie tour of Asheville, home to a rich culinary scene and heaps of breweries. After that, the day is all yours to explore the beauty of Asheville. Opt for an Electric Bike Tour, hop aboard some segways or even a paddleboard down the French Broad River. (B/D)
6 Asheville to Savannah
Leaving the mountains behind we venture to Savannah for a little Southern hospitality. Oak trees & tropical plants line the landscape here, as we head to the riverfront to enjoy the nightlife. We'll soak it all in, including River Street and the City Market.
7 Savannah to St Augustine
See ya Savannah! St Augustine beckons. Welcome to the quaint beaches & quiet allure of America's oldest inhabited city. As romantic as it is charming, we'll head across the cobblestone streets of St Augustine to the Old Spanish Quarter, and visit the iconic Castillo de San Marcos, a 300 year old fortress. (B)
8 St Augustine to Miami
Today we leave the quiet charm of St Augustine behind and head to the glitz and glamour of Miami. A little mouthwatering Cuban cuisine will get us in the mood with a delicious regional group meal setting the scene for two full days of art deco & celeb-spotting in this tropical paradise. For anyone looking for an adrenaline rush, the option is there for a Thriller Speedboat across the bay. (B/D)
9 Miami
It's time for some magical Miami sightseeing today. We'll head downtown, hit the Bayside Marketplace, Wynwood Walls and of course the South Beach. Options for a bike down the beach or a Party Boat adventure are on the cards for anyone who wants to party in the city where the heat is on.

12 Orlando to Panama City Beach
Leaving Orlando behind won't be easy, but knowing we're about to experience one of the world's most beautiful beaches isn't so bad... There's only one way to test the rumours, so we'll take a dip in the crystal clear waters and kick back on the pure white sands of Panama City Beach. (B)
13 Panama City Beach to New Orleans
Tear yourself away from the beach - a feast of music, food and culture awaits!The love-child of French & Caribbean culture, New Orleans will steal our hearts as soon as we arrive.
