America is a diverse country, filled with all manner of wonders. From New York to New England, there’s so much to see and do – why just limit yourself to one destination? Explore the East Coast, stopping off at New York, Boston and Miami. Although located relatively close, these cities are all vastly different, offering unique sceneries and experiences. So, whether you fancy a spot of shopping or just want to chill out at the beach, you’ll be well catered for.
The city that never sleeps, New York is renowned for its towering architecture, world-famous landmarks and shopping. But with so much to see, it can feel overwhelming trying to figure out where to begin. Our top recommendations include paying a visit to the Statue of Liberty (you can hop on the Staten Island Ferry to get there), the Empire State Building and Times Square.
Of course, if you fancy something a bit quieter, then a tour around Central Park is just the ticket. Explore by foot, bicycle, or horse-drawn carriage – you can even rent a boat for sailing along the reservoir!
Another must-see in New York is the American Museum of Natural History. As you enter, you’ll be greeted by towering dinosaur skeletons, which lead the way to astounding exhibitions; it’s a brilliant day out for the whole family.
Although often compared to New York, Boston boasts its own charm which is well worth discovering for yourself. Some of its greatest historical landmarks are surrounded by cobblestoned streets, making exploring a real delight.
The Freedom Trail is a great way to learn about Boston during the Revolutionary War, as it includes several well-known landmarks, including the Old State House, Old North Church and Paul Revere’s home. For a more current expedition, head to the Institute of Contemporary Art and learn more about today’s artists.
One thing is for certain when you visit Boston: you won’t go hungry. From clam chowder to lobster rolls, Boston has lots of delicious comfort foods.
An eclectic mix of beaches, art galleries and celebrity hotspots, Miami is made for the partygoers. Spend your days reclining on powder-soft sands, rousing only when you fancy topping up your cocktail, and the evenings discovering the best bars and nightclubs.
There’s plenty of things in Miami to keep families happy too. Shop for souvenirs at Bayside Marketplace or pay a visit to the Miami Science Museum, where kids are sure to love the exciting laser show.
