What's included in this trip
Big Apple to Big Easy SummaryAdd to Shortlist
See why the pulsing urban mass of New York has earned itself the moniker 'capital of the world'.
Roll into Philadelphia en route to the nation's capital. Perhaps discover the regal architecture of Washington, DC, including the White House and the Capitol Building, on a night bike ride through the city.
Escape the city grind and cross the jagged Appalachian Mountains, stopping at Shenandoah National Park and setting up camp in the heart of the great outdoors.
Keep cruisin' in the heart of Tennessee. Country music fans can't afford to miss Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame – the home of Elvis's gold Cadillac. There may also be the chance to catch a show at the legendary Wildhorse Saloon.
Get into the groove of Memphis, the 'home of the blues'. Perhaps pass time by shuffling over to Graceland, chilling out to some Mississippi blues in a Beale Street bar or dropping by Sun Studios – the birthplace of rock n' roll.
Head south to New Orleans and get ready to boogie down in a town they call the 'Big Easy'. Get acquainted with an optional tour of the French Quarter, browse the local shops, taste a delicious po'boy and perhaps head out for a farewell dinner on the always memorable Bourbon Street.
