DAY 1 - New York City to Washington D.C. via Philadelphia
New York City

A brief foray in the five boroughs will see you meeting the legends you'll be traversing the south with before we hit the road in search of the nation's capital.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the White House, Capitol Building & Washington Monument
See the Lincoln, Jefferson, Vietnam, FDR & Korean Memorials
Evening Illuminations Tour
Philadelphia

From New York, we'll make a cheeky stop in Philadelphia - a city teeming with people and history. See the Liberty Bell, visit the Independence Hall, and we're pretty sure by now you'll be feeling hungry. With lunch the game plan, why not grab a Philly cheese steak (they claim they have the best in the country).This city is where America declared its Independence; they're use to a little rebel-rousing, so feel free to make some noise.

Washington DC

Washington's neoclassical monuments look less far imposing dressed up in lights, so tonight we'll take you on an illumination tour of the city. With a Trip Manager leading the charge, we will cruise on the coach under the city glow, stopping for photos and talks along the way at the most iconic monuments. Thirsty? DuPont nightlife could be calling, so head out D.C style. 

DAYS 2-3 - Washington D.C.
Washington DC
Peddle round the city on a pushbike this morning to get your bearings, or take a Segway tour for an almost serious way to get around. Later, you could dose up on intellectualism at one of the 19 Smithsonian Museums. Other history-and-culture must-dos are watching the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, visiting the world-class Holocaust Museum and treating your inner Bond (or Bond girl) at the Spy Museum.
 
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Visit the Newseum Museum
USD $21.00
Washington DC
Believe it or not, amid the pomp and ceremony of politics, Washington DC has a tendier side just bursting to get out. Georgetown, its oldest district, has had new life breathed into it with a smattering of uptown galleries, boutiques and eateries and is a great spot by night...but more about that later. Come-as-you-are Adams Morgan is also a definite must: it overflows with hipsters (can't escape 'em, can you?), salsa dancers and patrygoers, and is the perfect spot for a bar hop. Or, if you feel like a round with a future President afterwards, feel free to hit the Georgetown bars - where the people who make the wheels turn hang loose.
 
DAY 4 - Washington D.C. to Raleigh via Richmond
Washington DC

After breakfast, it's time to leave the political stage behind (sigh) in favour of some good ol' fashioned Southern charm.

Richmond
Raleigh

Tonight we'll be slumbering in the town of Raleigh - a blossoming metropolis that happens to be home to the North Carolina State University. De-bunk the day over a tasty group dinner, then feel free to prowl the nightlife downtown.

DAY 5 - Raleigh to Savannah via Charleston
Raleigh
From the urban wilds of North Carolina's capital, we continue our journey, heading deeper south toward Savannah via Charleston.
 
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Enjoy nightlife along the riverfront
Guided walking tour of charming Savannah
See the historic city squares, homes & gardens made famous by the film 'Forrest Gump'
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Group Photo
USD $15.00
Charleston
Charleston, the birthplace of the dance craze of the same name. Here, horse and carriages are the norm and the ‘low country’ favourite of shrimps and grits are menu regulars, which should be high priority on your agenda today. Learn some facts from our Local Guide, and visit a historical rice plantation. Later, more beautiful 17th Century buildings will excite the architecture enthusiasts as we stroll along stunning Church Street and the waterside promenade, visiting the 200 year old market.
Savannah
The oldest town in Georgia, Savannah is charming and free-spirited. Manicured parks give way to cobbled squares, and the town is bedecked with ornate 19th-century architecture. Soak up the old-world charm along River Street, and throw all your calorie concerns out the window with a sundae at the 100-year-old ice-cream parlour, Leopold's.
 
DAY 6 - Savannah to St. Augustine
Savannah

One last morning under the spell of free-wheeling Savannah, her historic squares and mossy oak trees, then it's on to America's oldest city: St Augustine.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the historic city squares, homes & gardens made famous by the film 'Forrest Gump'
See the Castillo de San Marcos
St Augustine

St. Augustine may be part of sun-drenched Florida, but an amble around Old Town will show you it's wildly different from its amusement-park sister cities. Its rich history as a place of early settlement is woven into its streets, from the creepy jail to the old stores and kooky tea shops. That's not to say its beach isn't killer too: you could spend a full day here collecting shells, swimming and getting salty. Tonight get into the sweet city vibes at a local restaurant on the wate - nothing like a sundowner to get you into vacation mode. 

DAY 7 - St. Augustine to Daytona Beach (Cocoa Beach From Apr 2019) via Kennedy Space Center
St Augustine

It's a verified fact that all children dream of being an astronaut at least once - it's either that or a goldfish, we're not quite sure. Either way, today we leave the cobblestones of St Augustine in our wake and cruise the Space Coast.

Kennedy Space Center

With less computing power than you carry in your cell phone, NASA once rocketed men to the moon from the Kennedy Space Center - and they couldn't even Snapchat the landing. We spend a good chunk of today embracing our inner space nerd; you'll even get to see a rocket and a launchpad, 5,4,3,2,1!

Daytona Beach or Cocoa Beach

It’s all about fast cars as we make our way to the very famous Daytona Beach (for departures from Apr 2019 you will visit Cocoa Beach), most well known as the NASCAR capital of America.

DAY 8 - Daytona Beach (Cocoa Beach From Apr 2019) to Miami
Daytona Beach or Cocoa Beach

This morning is dedicated to down time, either laying low on the beach or hitting the skies on a parasail, then we're back on the road.

Miami

Hot, loud and fabulously flashy, Miami will knock your socks off. This character driven place has so many diverse neighbourhoods, each with their own unique cultures. We'll cruise downtown, taking in the Miami Heat basketball arena and the outdoor shopping center, Bayside Marketplace, then why not go a little Miami Vice on a 'Thriller' speedboat tour of the Bay. Want to make it a night to really remember? Opt for our boat party and cruise around Miami harbour, spending your evening like a celeb.

DAY 9 - Miami
Miami

Don't hit snooze too many times, because you've been gifted a full day to explore this glittering metropolis. On bikes, we'll check out Miami's waterfront neighbourhoods, spotting icons like the Versace Mansion. If you'd like to shimmy your way into the local Latin culture, head to Little Havana and verse whoever will take you at street dominoes on Calle Ocho whilst puffing on a cigar. Tonight, experience the city's Cuban side with a mouthwatering dinner where we'll be picking up the bill. Later, take a stroll down the super cool South Beach and peruse the art deco buildings and bright neon lights, finishing up with a night of dancing amidst Miami's uber fun club scene.

DAY 10 - Miami to Orlando
Miami

Another slightly cleaner type of fun awaits us today - Orlando, the home to more than a dozen theme parks and belly screams a-plenty. 

Orlando

Orlando was once a farming town but has since undergone a transformation into the most visited place in Florida. It is now home to the happiest place on earth, Disney World. Walt Disney’s imagination was instrumental in turning this place into the fun, fantasy and amusement-loving spot that it is today. Savvy shoppers, this place has many an outlet mall just waiting for you to flex your credit card in - think rock-bottom prices on Nike, Ray-Ban, Lululemon and more - so prepare to do some serious bank balance damage.

DAY 11 - Orlando
Orlando

How you spend today is entirely up to you. Will you be downing butterbeer in the Three Broomsticks at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Straining your vocal chords on slides with gradients that shouldn't be legal at a water park? Or cuddling up to childhood friends like Minnie and Mickey at one of Disney World's four parks? Whatever your choice, it's sure to be a ripper of a day, and seeing as most parks also offer themed bars and clubs, it techically doesn't have to end.

DAY 12 - Orlando to Panama City Beach via Tallahassee
Orlando

You can leave your Mickey ears on, but we're on the move again today, this time westward. We'll be turning the clocks back an hour as we journey to Tallahassee, which means an extra hour in Florida's vibrant capital. 

Tallahassee
Panama City Beach

Tonight we'll settle in at one of "The World's Most Beautiful Beaches" - Panama City Beach, testing out the hype with a dip in the clear blue waters.

DAY 13 - Panama City Beach to New Orleans via Mobile
Panama City Beach

We rise early this morning to make the most of the afternoon in what they call the Big Easy, where jazz is as much a part of everyday life as breathing.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Locally guided city tour
See the French Quarter, Jackson Square & the French Market
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Taste of New Orleans
USD $33.00
Mobile
New Orleans

This city will romance you with its soul and have you swooning over its spiritual heart - the French Quarter. The main drag culminates at Jackson Square with the iconic wrought iron balconies lining the streets. You’ll be hard pressed to pick which you think is more enchanting, the European/Caribbean fusion food or the non-stop jazz festival vibe. No matter which you choose, tonight we turn up the volume and hit Bourbon Street to sample the live music and bar culture that New Orleans is so famous for, indulging in signature cocktails like the hurricane and the sazerac. 

DAY 14 - New Orleans
New Orleans

With a full day to yourself, it's time to get fully immersed in everything New Orleans. Start out at Cafe Du Monde for a tasty beignet, and pick up some treasures at the French Market if you're feeling like dropping some dollar. This diverse city has so much going on; visit the Garden District, spend a few hours in the soul kitchens and jazz clubs of the French Quarter or even hang out in Jackson Square with the musicians, artists and fortunetellers. There's a cooking school on offer for those looking to fine-tune (or learn) their Gumbo, jambalaya and creole recipes, or for those keen to get on the mighty Mississippi, why not zip down the river on an air boat cruise and spot some baby gators in the wild. Back in the city, the Mardi Gras Museum could be calling, most likely tempting you to come back to the city and experience the event first hand.

DAY 15 - New Orleans to Memphis via Jackson
New Orleans

You've let the good times roll (or “Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler”, as the motto goes). It's time to gather your party beads and empty your hurricane cups, because we're veering north today. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Beale Street, home of Blues music
Jackson

If Jackson was cool enough for Johnny Cash to sing about, then it's sure as hell cool enough for us. We'll drop in to see if we can pick up on some of that Delta blues inspiration before continuing on to Memphis.

Memphis

It's no wonder Memphis, Tennessee, pulls so many pilgrims - not only is it the home of blues, it's also the home of barbecued meat. Now that's a winning combo. Lose yourself to dance on a group night out on Beale Street,  where Blues music was first birthed among its juke joints and honky tonks.

DAY 16 - Memphis
Memphis

Today we pay homage to Elvis, the late and great King of Rock’n’Roll. We'll visit and tour his former home, Graceland, where you will get up close and personal with his fabulously flamboyant jumpsuits and many gold records. The afternoon is then yours to do with Memphis what you will - we recommend a visit to the Sun Studios where many of the greats have recorded albums over the years.

DAY 17 - Memphis to Dallas via Little Rock and Taxarkana
Memphis

Make like a band and get the show back on the road. Today we'll cross the Mississippi River and head through the Deep South, arriving in the Lone Star state by nightfall.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Cross the Mississippi River
Little Rock

We'll make a stop here to look around Little Rock Central High School, one of the founding places of 'desegregation' which brought black civil rights issues into peoples lounge rooms at a time when much of the world had no idea what was going down in America's South.

Texarkana

You may be looking at this name thinking what the...and you would be right. After a quick photo op at the border of Texas and Arkansas (aptly named Texarkana) and some lunch, it's back on the road to our next stop. 

Dallas

We arrive in Fort Worth (think western style with modern vibes), ready to take on anything and everything Texan. Tummies will be rumbling, so we'll dive mouth first into an over-indulgent big BBQ feast of ribs, sausages, chicken and more - not for the faint-hearted (veggies don't worry, you won't be going hungry). A night out with the locals will get you in the Texan spirit, before falling into a blissful sleep which will probably having you dreaming of BBQ.

DAY 18 - Dallas/Fort Worth
Dallas

Dallas is home to Oil Tycoons, rich ranchers, a thriving tech industry, and of course the Dallas Cowboys, also known as ''America's Team''. Feeling like an investigation? We include a visit to the 6th floor museum where you can learn more about the assassination of President John F Kennedy and try your hand at figuring out 'whodunnit.' Back in Fort Worth, enjoy lunch and sightseeing around Sundance Square, try a craft beer on the Ale Trail or pick up some genuine leather boots and hats at the world famous Justin's Boots. You will be looking good tonight as we head to the Fort Worth Stockyards, home of the cowboy hall of fame and the world's largest honkey tonk, Billy Bob.

DAY 19 - Dallas to Amarillo
Dallas

Today we cast the Dallas Cowboys and their cheerleading companions aside and make for the real cowboys of the Texas Panhandle.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Experience Big Texan culture & food.
Amarillo

Heading west we travel into the heart of cowboy country - yes this really is the way to Amarillo. This town may be little but it sure is mighty when it comes to country living. The old west accommodation even has a Texas shaped pool and a hotel for your horse, if you thought to bring it along. Tonight over dinner, you could try your hat at 'The Big Texan Steak Challenge' - a true Man Vs Food moment for those who have more metabolism than sense.

DAY 20 - Amarillo to Albuquerque via Santa Fe
Amarillo

Leave the dusty plains of Texas behind in the rearview mirror, because we're en route to the mountains of New Mexico. We'll make a stop on the way out of town where it is strictly Americana with a Cadillac ranch full of unique art and a timeline of Cadillac models. Grab a can of spray paint and leave your mark on a Cadillac buried in the sand. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the Cadillac Ranch
Visit Old Town Albuquerque
Santa Fe
Albuquerque

As we pull into New Mexico's largest city sometime in the late afternoon, you'll instantly be hit with the Spanish vibes. Adobe buildings hundreds of years old line Old Town, and hip Nob Hill is peppered with shops, bars and restaurants. 

DAY 21 - Albuquerque to Durango
Albuquerque

The only way to start your day in Alberquerque is bobbing through the sky in a hot-air balloon, getting snap-happy with the fiery desert vistas below. Quite literally, #nofilterneeded. That being said, a sleep in might be nice too - either way, we'll be on the road to Durango by late morning.

Durango

The great outdoors is the way of life in Durango with adrenaline pumping river rafting on offer to you and your fellow thrill seekers. If you’d rather explore the region on horseback then pick your trusty steed and be on your way in true old school traveller style. Durango literally means "water town", and considering the number of microbreweries it has, we might just ditch the water for something a bit stronger. 

DAY 22 - Durango to Grand Canyon via Monument Valley
Durango

This morning we'll leave the Rocky Mountains behind with one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World in our sights.

Monument Valley
Grand Canyon

Nothing can prepare you for the impact of the Grand Canyon - it's a legit 'you had to be there' moment. We'll pull in late today, have a moreish group dinner and check into our lodge to get a good night's sleep before getting up close and personal with the canyon in the morning.

DAY 23 - Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon

You will be contemplating life, existence, and the immense size of the Grand Canyon with a free day to spend in Grand Canyon National Park. You can spend your day feeling a part of the wilderness as you go hiking through the exposed rock, but by far the most spine tingling experience at this natural wonder is one of our optional chopper rides through the UNESCO World Heritage site. Indulgent sure, but one of those life moments you deserve to treat yourself to. Tonight settle in to watch the sunset on the rim - the epitome of a #NOREGRETS moment for you and the squad.

Following the legendary Route 66, we stop off for a souvenir hunt in the old historical town of Seligman. You’ll be transported back to the 1940s while you stroll past the original facades of shops and motels.

Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas! And you certainly will live the life of Las Vegas on this extended stop in the place so aptly dubbed ‘Sin City’. A nighttime tour of the famous ‘Strip’, including  a stop for pics at the legendary Vegas sign will show you the after dark offerings of this absolutely outrageous city. Freemont Street is on tonight's agenda, where the main attraction is a super impressive light and laser show, then it's all about hitting the town, Vegas style. 

DAY 25 - Las Vegas
Las Vegas

You have today all to yourself but you’ll need to run to a tight schedule to fit in all of Vegas' weird and wonderful charms. Travel the world in a day, taking in the famous Bellagio fountain, a Venetian gondola and even an Egyptian pyramid, all whilst staying firmly within the city. Feeling romantic? Stop by and see one of the many Elvis impersonators for a shotgun wedding ceremony, and maybe even get hitched yourself...(joking). Tonight live like a baller while you cruise along the 'Strip' in a party bus and don't stress, the bill is on us. Later, you’ll witness the 24-hour party scene first hand when you head out for a night with the crew.

Many a teary hug will be had with the people you have made unforgettable memories with.

This trip was incredible, I was lucky enough to do the Grand Northern with Charity last year and jumped at the chance to do the southern with her. The culture, the history and the amazing contiki fam made the trip absolutely unbelievable. Couldn’t think of a better way to end the year

Accommodation was great and spacious. And got to see a lot in the 26 days we travelled, never once thought the price wasn't worth the trip.

Easy to purchase through. Had many problems with STA travel agent, but I switched to Flight Centre and it was pretty cruisy after that.

Everywhere we visited was everywhere I wanted to see in USA, only really missing Dallas. It was well worth the money and I'm glad I went when I did :)

We saw so many sights I would never have seen if I didn’t take this holiday. And my tour manager Charity just made the trip even better! Her work ethic amazes me!

The accomodation was on a number of occasions, pretty bad. For the price I don't expect it to be amazing but when sinks wouldn't drain/there was mould in the room/ door handles fell off etc. I think Contiki could do better. I also think the food could have been better - the preloaded starbucks card for Washington DC was much better value than the in house hotel 'breakfast'.

All the places were amazing. But would Be good if less time was spent in DC and more time somewhere else like Savannah or another small town

Seen so much of the country in just a month and went to places I would never have seen if I organised the trip on my own.
