INTRODUCTION TO US EAST COAST
Sure the West Coast is glamorous and the Southern States are renowned for their hospitality, but if you want mighty megacities, historical landmarks and scrumptious seafood, a USA East Coast tour is simply where it's at. Landscaped by delightful towns and even more delightful people, the word ‘diverse’ doesn’t do justice to the historical tapestry that makes up the East Coast. The Jazzy French-Caribbean culinary delights of the light up New Orleans, the 17th Century architecture of Charleston, the iconic landmarks of politically-charged D.C and the cloud-piercing skyscrapers of bold Chicago are just a few of the destinations that will have you head-over-heels for the USA’s East Coast. You’ll likely have been drawn to the East Coast by the trendy neighbourhoods of New York, but you’ll stay for the awe-inspiring activities, mind-blowing nature and undeniable magic that this part of the world has to offer.
Didn’t consider the East Coast much of a beachy hot spot? How wrong you are. From the sizzling Latin beaches boasted by stylish Miami, to the famed shores of Daytona Beach, the East Coast can offer you the sandy getaway you’ve been craving, and then some. If that wasn’t enough, perhaps you’ll be tempted by Texan BBQ, or Philly Cheesesteaks - neither of which are for the faint-hearted. Gators, mountains and eagles make up the backdrop of the East Coast countryside, dotted with picturesque towns and serene lakes and just oozing with road-trip potential. Want to get into the nitty-gritty of the USA’s history? With Liberty Bell and Philadelphia's Independence Hall all on its doorstep, the East Coast has an abundance of landmarks and monuments to get you well and truly clued up on the Nation's beginnings.
Everyone is pulled to the East Coast for different reasons, be it the connection with the nation’s history, the exciting melange of cultures and interests, or the humbling, soul-warming cuisine that you just won’t find anywhere else. No matter your reason for visiting, you’ll stay for one reason: the sense of community in Eastern USA, that will have you meeting people you could’ve sworn you knew in a past life. An East Coast trip will have you questioning everything you thought you knew about the American way of life.
