1 Arrive Los Angeles
Hello America! Welcome to the City of Angels. Here you'll meet the crew and kick off your trip in true A-list Hollywood style with visits to places you'll recognise from the silver screen. It's a jam-packed day with so much to see and do - from Melrose to Muscle Beach you'll be wowed at every stop and your phone will no doubt be full of Instagram worthy pics. Tonight exchange highlights of the day over a delicious American-Asian fusion feast. (D)
2 Los Angeles
The day is yours to explore the City of Angels. Opt to visit Universal Studios or Disneyland or check out LA Live entertainment venue. The shopping goes off, so look for deals in the garment district. Visit the Grammy Museum and for the foodies among us check out Grand Central Market a treat for the tastebuds and the senses. (B)
3 Los Angeles to Las Vegas
This morning we leave Los Angeles behind and head out across the Mojave Desert to the bright lights of legendary Las VegasLA, you've been a dream, but we're swapping out the glamourous dreamscape of La La land for the neon delights of Vegas. A place of dreams and epic debauchery, this huge man-made entertainment precinct in the middle of the desert is all about total excess. You'll be blinded by the bright lights and gobsmacked at the thought of all the $$$ running through more than 75 massive casinos. A nighttime tour of the famous ‘Strip', including a stop for pics at the legendary Vegas sign, will show you what's on offer after dark in this outrageous city. (D)
4 Las Vegas
Spend the morning lazing by the poolside sipping on recovery cocktails, or maybe opt to soar in a helicopter above the Grand Canyon – one of the world's most impressive natural wonders. This city has some quirkier offerings too, like the Neon Museum and the Atomic Testing Museum. At night, we'll treat you to a cruise down the strip, Vegas Style. (B)
5 Las Vegas
Our final day in 'Sin City' is open for you to let loose and enjoy. High roll (or observe from a safe distance) in one of the countless casinos, do some bargain-hunting in the factory outlets, admire the elaborate synchronised fountains of The Bellagio, or opt to catch a Cirque du Soleil show. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and we're staying one more night for you to make sure you have #noregrets!
6 Las Vegas to Miami
This morning we trade one hot spot for another as we board our flight to Miami! Get ready for beaches, glamour and excitement. Welcome to Miami, Bienvenido a Miami! We'll swap the bling for beaches today as we touch down in Florida's Southeastern tip. Today's a free day for you to soak up as much of that Florida sunshine and sea as you can. Tomorrow we'll check out the Cuban-influenced downtown and the colourful buildings & white sands of glamorous South Beach.
7 Miami
Another day in this eclectic city, and we've got the need for speed. Why not go a little Miami Vice on a Thriller speedboat tour of the bay? After experiencing a slice of the city's Cuban side with a mouthwatering dinner tonight (on us), take a stroll down the super cool South Beach and peruse the art deco buildings and bright neon lights, finishing up with a night of dancing amidst Miami's uber fun club scene. Want to make it a night to really remember? Opt for our boat party and cruise around Miami harbour, spending your evening like a celebrity. (B/D)
8 Miami
You'll discover energetic Miami today with free time to do as you please. This urban tropical paradise is a fabulous place to people watch (or celebrity spot), so head down to Ocean Avenue and drink it all in. Swimming, bike riding tours or museum visits are also on the cards this afternoon. Little Havana is a must see with Cuban flavours to taste, dominoes to be played and salsa music to be danced to. Tonight, get into the nighttime vibes once again, because well, why not?
9 Miami
It's our last day in Miami, and by now we're definitely feeling like locals. If you haven't yet copped yourself a fedora, taken that classic insta pic by a vintage car or seen all the sights you wanted to see, now's your chance. Let loose on the city's vintage stores to stock up on souvenirs, or even take the day to get in that all-important tanning sesh - this is our last day in Miami, after all. Tonight, we'll sip margaritas and swap stories about our highlights, ready for our morning flight the next day. (B)
10 Miami to New York
One more Cuban coffee for the road and we'll bid our farewells to marvellous Miami before jumping on our included flight to the Big Apple. (D)
11 Hello Big Apple!
Welcome to New York! Today, get up close to one of the world's most recognisable icons, the Statue of Liberty, then you can take off at your own pace and discover more of the ultimate big city. Get on 2 wheels in a fun optional guided tour and peddle your way through Central Park, New York's heart and “lungs”. Your Trip Manager knows this popular haunt's hidden spots and will tell you all about this iconic green space. Otherwise, get familiar with New York's various flavors and step into its global kitchen. Try some hand made pasta in atmospheric Little Italy, or authentic noodles from a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in bustling Chinatown. Pick up a bagel and some salami from a deli or buy an authentic American hot dog from a street stand. (B)
