Atlantic Coast Road Trip
7 days with G Adventures Rating:
Day 1 Orlando
Arrive at any time. Orlando is home to Disney World; the “Most Magical Place On Earth” but who says this place is just for kids? For adults Disney Springs is the place to be! Head out for an evening of excitement with your travel peeps and CEO in a place where fun is the whole point. From nightclubs to cocktail bars enjoy jaw-dropping entertainment and one-of-a-kind eateries as the night settles around you.
After the welcome meeting, opt to check out Disney Springs.
Day 2 Orlando/Savannah
Head to historic Savannah, stopping along the way in America's oldest city, St. Augustine. Once in Savannah you can enjoy free time to explore alone or with a travel buddy. Walk around this Southern Belle of a town, admire the architecture and oak trees covered in Spanish moss, head out to Bonaventure Cemetery, or stroll along the waterfront. (B, L)
Day 3 Savannah/Charleston
Journey to the city of Charleston, known for its historic, romantic charm. Once you arrive, if you aren't too beat enjoy a free afternoon in this southern charmed city with your friends. Make sure to sample some catfish stew or shrimp and grits from The Glass Onion. Get to know the locals and enjoy the home-cooked comforts of soul food in your new home away from home. (B)
Day 4 Charleston/Richmond
Sit back, relax, and reflect as you travel north. Then history buffs unite once you arrive in Richmond, Virginia — a city that played a large part in the U.S. Civil War. With a buzzy craft beer scene, a loyalty to the homegrown, and locally owned shops you just may find yourself yelling the famous quote "Give me liberty or give me death" with your fellow tour buddies as the night goes on. (B, L, D)
Day 5 Richmond/Washington DC
Next stop: the U.S. capital! Along the way enjoy time to explore Georgetown, a historic waterfront D.C. neighbourhood lined with cobblestoned streets, 19th-century architecture and a flare for blending the past and present. As the sun sets get ready to embark on a moonlight monument tour to some of Washington DC's memorials as they light up the night. (B, L, D)
Day 6 Washington DC
Spend your day immersed in the Nation's capital with plenty of free time to see the sights. Meander through exhibits at the Smithsonian Museum and along the National Mall, see where the President lives on Pennsylvania Avenue, tour the Capitol Building, eat something delicious on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and get lost on the streets of DC's quaint neighbourhoods. (B)
Day 7 Washington DC/New York City
Today, let history guide you through Philadelphia along the way to New York City. See the room where the Declaration of Independence was signed, stuff your face with a famous Philly Cheesesteak, get up close and personal with the Liberty Bell and feel the freedom of America in your veins before making your way to the final destination—NYC! Welcome to The Big Apple! From the Statue of Liberty to Ground Zero to Chinatown, New York City is full of things to do and see. We recommend spending extra time here before you head home.
