More Information

DAY 1 New Orleans, Louisiana

Meet the crew and get ready to get down, the New Orleans way. Hit up Bourbon Street tonight – this is THE place to party, so arm yourself with a Hand Grenade cocktail and get those toes tapping.


DAY 2 New Orleans

Today’s the day to tick off any leftover items on your ‘things I MUST do in the Bayou’ list. Swing dance in NOLA, creep yourself out in one of the ‘Cities of the Dead’, find out what a steam calliope sounds like, or just have a taste of true New Orleans crawfish. Today’s optionals? We’re glad you asked. Choose from a swamp tour, a cooking demo or a paddleboat cruise.


DAY 3 New Orleans to Houston, Texas

Up next: Houston, the heart of Texas. Expect a mixture of high culture, pick-up trucks and Tex Mex restaurants.


DAY 4 Houston to Austin

Reawaken those childhood dreams of riding in a rocket on an optional visit to the Houston Space Center before we rock up in Austin. Tonight: feast on a Texan BBQ.


DAY 5 Austin

The city is yours today. Hello thrift shopping, Airstream cuisine (cooler than regular food trucks) nudists, boot scooters, cheese makers and a cathedral of junk. When you’re done with the weird, there’s Zilker Park and SoCo to check out. Be sure to hit 6th Street tonight for a live music smorgasbord.


DAY 6 Austin to Dallas/Fort Worth

First up, we’ll pay a visit to The Sixth Floor Museum (which details the history of the JFK assassination). Afterwards, we’re off to Dallas and the Fort Worth Historic Stockyards for a step back in time to the Wild West. From its original brick walkways to its wooden corrals, Fort Worth has it all. Tonight, we highly recommend Billy Bob’s Texas – the World’s Largest Honky Tonk. This enormous dancehall has over 30 bars and can hold up to 6,000 people! Time to get your two step on.


DAY 7 Dallas/Fort Worth to Amarillo

Amarillo is a ‘go big or go home’ kinda place. See someone take the 72oz steak challenge at a Texan steakhouse for proof.


DAY 8 Amarillo to Albuquerque, New Mexico

Feeling artistic? Good. It’s time to channel Banksy at Cadillac Ranch (an art installation of half-buried Cadillacs) on Route 66. You’ll get to crack out the spray paint and get creative on the tailfins of these all-American automobiles. Next up: Albuquerque (the home of Breaking Bad).


DAY 9 Albuquerque to Durango, Colorado

We’ll make a pit stop at Santa Fe before we roll on to Durango. Wanna get that adrenaline pumping? Durango’s the place to do it! Later: zip up your boots, we’re off to visit a ranch!


DAY 10 Durango

You’ve got a free day in Durango, so make it count. There’s a whole bunch of exciting optionals to choose from – or if you’d rather slow the pace, you could simply spot prairie dogs and gaze at the cracking scenery from the Durango Silverton steam train.


DAY 11 Durango to Grand Canyon region, Arizona

Today feels like a Navajo jeep tour kind of day. One that goes through Monument Valley. Even though it’s a bumpy ride, you'd be forgiven for wanting to miss the bus, especially once you learn the stories of the mesas from our Navajo guide.


DAY 12 Grand Canyon to Las Vegas, Nevada

Today we’re rolling from the red stripes of the Grand Canyon (where you could take to the skies on an optional heli-tour) to The Strip in Vegas, where we’ve got a driving tour all lined up. When the sun sets, don your finest outfits – it’s time to board the party bus. Afterwards, there’s some optional nightclub entry to take advantage of. Don’t mind if we do!


DAY 13 Las Vegas

Anything goes in Vegas. Our suggestions? Well, you could go high with an optional heli-tour over The Strip, ride the High Roller Observation Wheel or visit a shooting range. Whatever you choose, just remember to save some energy for one last Sin City night out.


DAY 14 Las Vegas to Los Angeles, California

Wipe away the last traces of glitter and board the coach – it’s time to head back to La La Land, where this trip wraps up.
