What's included in this trip
Across America Westbound SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Loud, fast and pulsating with energy, New York City is the ideal spot to begin this across America tour. With so much awesome sightseeing in New York, its well worth staying a few extra days - or even weeks!
Visit Philadelphia en route to the nation's capital. Discover the countless attractions in Washington DC, including the White House and Capitol Building, during a guided walking tour around the city.
Cross the jagged Appalachian Mountains and stop by roadside trails for leisurely hikes along the way.
Keep cruisin' into the heart of Tennessee, Nashville. Country music fans can't afford to miss a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame while here - home to Elvis' golden Cadillac.
Explore the 'Home of the Blues', Memphis. Attractions here come in all shapes and sizes but none of them are bigger than Graceland. Take a visit to Elvis Presley's impressive home or check out a blues club on Beale Street.
The trip continues west today, heading to New Orleans in Louisiana. Get acquainted with the French Quarter or Bourbon Street, visit local shops and admire the grand Southern mansions.
Visit an antebellum plantation home or take a Louisiana swamp tour en-route to Houston, Texas.
Everything's bigger in cities in Texas, including the music, so get into the swing of this southern state by enjoying some live music along the Austin riverfront.
Hike into the gigantic Carlsbad Caverns, then witness thousands of bats swarm out of the cave and into the inky night sky.
Mounds of perfectly white sand dunes as far as the eye can see await at the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.
Step back in time in Tombstone - the town that hosted the most famous gunfight in Old West history.

Discover the weird and wonderful landscape of Monument Valley, the heart of the Navajo Indian Reserve and home to more than 200,000 members of the Navajo tribe.
Take a dip in the warm, crystal clear waters of Lake Powell or simply laze on the sunny shores. Spend the night sleeping at a western ranch.

Venture out across the arid deserts of southern California en route to America's jingling hip-pocket, Las Vegas, Nevada. Be dazzled by the neon signs that light up the Vegas Strip, see a show or dance the night away at an A-list club.
