Eastern Values Fly Drive Tour

8 Nights

New York, NY

Begin with an exciting adventure in “The City That Never Sleeps,” New York, where world-class dining, museums and Broadway shows are all at your fingertips.  Leaving the glass high rises and infamous brownstones behind, change pace with a meander across New York state through stunning Finger Lakes Country.  Before long, the soft rolling hills will give way to art deco-inspired Buffalo, and the iconic Niagara Falls, one of the Natural Wonders of the World. You’ll feel as if you’ve stepped back in time in Amish Country, where horse drawn carriages mingle with everyday traffic, and the flat surroundings are peppered with barns and Amish homesteads.  American history awaits discovery on a journey through the Appalachian Mountains and along the Susquehanna River to the Gettysburg Civil War National Battleground, site of the largest battle ever fought on American soil.  From the past into the heart of the American present, discover iconic American monuments in the Nation’s Capital, including visits to the White House, Lincoln’s memorial, or any of the many historic museums in the city before continuing to enjoy a balance of colonial and modern city life in Philadelphia, the birthplace of America.
