Itinerary

Day 1New York City, NY

Our East Coast adventure will start in New York City at our start hotel, here we’ll have time to experience the highlights of the city that truly never sleeps. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing in New York City, with a chance to not only experience it on foot but also by subway, a true New York experience in itself! But first, of course: food! We’ll start out our day right with a tasting tour in the trendy DUMBO neighborhood, where industrial warehouses have been transformed into boutique shops, restaurants, and cafes. We’ll need to walk off some of those calories and no trip to New York is complete without a leisurely walk over the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. Your guide will share stories of the bridge’s impressive construction as you take in the amazing views of Manhattan. At lunch time we step inside historic Chelsea Market, not only a bustling food hall and shopping mall, but also the original home of a factory responsible for inventing one of our favorite sandwich cookies, the Oreo! After lunch you’ll enjoy a stroll with your guide up on New York’s High Line, a former elevated railroad line that survived total demolition to become one of the city’s most popular destinations and a place for New Yorkers to escape and enjoy a sliver of nature above the busy streets. We’ll enjoy its curated gardens, wildspaces, and overlooks.

We’ll then head over to the west side of the city to catch the Staten Island Ferry, which will take us to another top NYC attraction, the Statue of Liberty! Back on land, we’ll take a stroll down Wall Street and pay a visit to the Charging Bull of the Financial District, visit the touching tribute memorial to the victims of 9,11. The best way to end your NYC experience? An evening visit to Times Square with an optional dinner at a high-rise in Koreatown!

Day 2Philadelphia, PA

After leaving NYC it is a 1.5 hour drive to Philadelphia where we will arrive late morning in the City of Brotherly Love, and we’ll be setting out on a full city tour that includes the top historic attractions in Philadelphia. Visit the very location where both the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were signed at Independence Hall, pass by the homes of notable Philly residents like Betsy Ross and Benjamin Franklin, and get up close to the very symbol of American freedom, the Liberty Bell. With its cobblestone streets, preserved brick row houses, and stately colonial architecture, you’ll feel transported right back to the days of the American Revolution. After we’ve had our fill of U.S. history, we’ll head across town to the famous food hall, Reading Terminal Market, where you’ll experience a maze of food stalls serving up everything from cream-filled cannolis to freshly made hand-rolled doughnuts. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, we’ll head to the historic 9th Street Italian Market for a variety of food tastings. The generations-owned shops that line this hundred-year market offer up everything imaginable, like famous Philly tomato pie, artisanal cheeses from all over the world, and much, much more. Trust us, you won’t go hungry here! We still need to mark one more Philly classic of our check-off list for food here: the best classic Philly Cheesesteak! We’ll take you to the best joint in town and teach you how to order like a true local. Afterwards, you’re welcome to keep exploring the city or head back to the hotel to charge up for another day of city sightseeing in Washington DC!
