1 Toronto, Ontario
Toronto – let's do this! Meet and mingle with your new coach buddies this evening over a welcome dinner. Chow down and get excited for the road ahead. You're in Canada, baby! (D)
A free day to take on the city your way. What's the best thing about Toronto? Well, if the jaw-dropping scenery, the Ice Hockey Hall of Fame and the CN Tower don't do it for you, there's always the poutine (read: cheese and gravy-covered french fry heaven). (B)
3 Toronto to Detroit, Michigan (via Niagara Falls)
O Canada, it's been a blast. Round off your stay in this gem of a country with one last hurrah at Niagara Falls. There's just enough time to hop on a Voyage to the Falls boat trip before we make tracks to the land of all things supersized. (B)
4 Detroit to Chicago, Illinois
First things first: a driving tour. Then man oh man, does Chicago have some optionals for you. Bike hire? Check. Architecture river cruises? Check. Helicopter tours? Checkity-check. There's even a gangster tour to get on board with if hoodlums are your thing. When you're done exploring, rejoin the group for a hair-raising visit to the city's most thrilling attraction – the 360 Chicago Tower Observatory (with included TILT experience). (B/D)
Have you been blown away by the Windy City yet? There's still a ton of awesome stuff to see, so hit the streets and get wandering. While you're in explorer mode, check out the Bean or watch the Cubs in action at Wrigley Field. And, GO! (B)
6 Chicago to Cleveland, Ohio
Hang on to your horse and buggy – we're in Amish country! Sample a taste of the simple life before we move on to Cleveland, the home to all things rock and roll. (B)
7 Cleveland to Washington D.C.
See ya later, Cleveland – we've got a date with the bright lights of DC! After dinner with the crew, we'll see the city all lit up after dark on tonight's illumination tour. Prepare to get all the feels. (B/D)
8 Washington D.C.
Free day = yay! Make the most of your time in the land of memorials, museums and monuments with an optional bike ride or segway tour.
9 Washington, D.C. to New York City (via Philidelphia)
First: Philly. For views of the city, take the optional trip up to the One Liberty Observation Deck. Then it's on to NYC, where we'll finish up. May we suggest tagging yourself in Times Square and filling up on pizza in Brooklyn before you head home?
