More Information

Day 1 Miami, Florida
Meet with the group and prep yourself for an unforgettable adventure. Take a trip to Little Havana to people-watch in the cafes, while street musicians provide a Cuban backing track. Stroll by the pretty pastel houses and dodge the Speedo-clad skaters of South Beach. Or let the Hop On Hop Off bus tour show you the sights so you get your bearings and see more of the nooks and crannies of the city. After an authentic Cuban dinner, see Miami come to life at night (if this place could get more lively) and join a club crawl.

Meals:
-Dinner
Day 2 Miami to Orlando
The closest you'll get to flying...without really leaving the ground. Take an airboat tour, shoot across the Everglades and (almost) get tangled in the mangroves. After that, Mickey and friends will be just around the corner, and if you've outgrown him, there'll soon be candy floss and roller coasters to revive your inner child as we head to Orlando.

Included today:
-Everglades airboat experience
Day 3 Orlando
If you've got your swimmers, get splash-tastic at one of the water parks or visit a galaxy that's not so very far, far away with the Star Wars attractions at Walt Disney World. If theme parks just aren't your bag there are the botanical garden, wine bars, spas and shopping, or to hang out with the local foodies, try Ivanhoe Village for lunch or dinner. Also an option: explore Kennedy Space Center.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Disney World
-Universal Studios
-Kennedy Space Center
Day 4 Orlando to Savannah, Georgia
Wave goodbye to the Magic Kingdom and mouse ears, you're en route to the bona fide southern belle that is Savannah. Tonight it's ghost tour time (if you dare). Not to scare you, but Savannah is one of America's most haunted cities. You'll wander through the spooky (yet beautiful) streets and visit haunted and historic houses, all while hearing bone-chilling tales of of ghosts and ghouls.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Ghost tour of Savannah
Day 5 Savannah
After a hopefully nightmare-free sleep, take in the 18th-century buildings and dreamy tree-lined walkways of Savannah. Pare the pace way back with an (optional) slow-paced bike tour, then have your own "life is like a box of chocolates" moment where Forrest Gump waited for the bus.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Slow-paced bike tour of Savannah
Day 6 Savannah to Wilmington, North Carolina via Charleston, South Carolina
Before hitting Wilmington, sample the charm of Charleston. They've got giant sea turtles, blooming lovely gardens to wander around, fancy-pants shops to peruse and a WWII aircraft carrier to clamber in. Safe to say, there's something for everyone. When you rock up to Wilmington, we'll drive around downtown to see the historical side of this North Carolinian city. Beer geeks rejoice, because this place knows a thing or two about craft beers and bottle shops.

Included today:
-Driving tour of Wilmington

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
Day 7 Wilmington to Washington, District of Columbia
It's time to swap the pretty beaches of North Carolina for the bright lights of this nation's capital. Tomorrow will give you a chance to explore Washington by day, but tonight it's all about crossing that Potomac River into DC and enjoying an illuminated tour of the capital's monuments. The White House at night is a sight not to be missed.

Included today:
-Washington DC Night Illumination Tour

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
Day 8 Washington, D.C.
Snap yourself in front of some of the US's most iconic buildings, recreate famous movie moments, spot a senator. Today you can get a real feel for the powerhouse that is DC. Get your bearings and tick off all the must-see places with an optional segway or bike tour. However you travel, this is the place to clue yourself up on all things American history, and visit some of the many memorials, monuments and museums.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Bike & segway tour of Washington D.C.
Day 9 Washington, D.C. to New York City, via Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
It's time to leave the capital behind for a pitstop in Philly. For a bird's eye view of the city, you can choose to head to the One Liberty Observation Deck. We'll do a driving tour of Philadelphia to see the sights - you'll channel your inner champ at the Rocky statue, feel the love as you swing by the Love statue - before heading for the bright lights of the Big Apple.
