You'll have time to enjoy a spot of lunch here, probably involving the city's iconic cheesesteak sandwich, before continuing on to Washington D.C., the capital city and seat of political power.

Rise and shine, the political and cultural highlights of this high flying city await this morning. You'll start things off with a sightseeing tour with your Travel Director that might feel like you're walking through a movie set, stopping at the iconic gargantuan Lincoln Memorial. The rest of the day is then free to explore however you choose and the question is where to start? You might like to spend an afternoon exploring the museums of the Smithsonian Institution, or take a trip to George Washington's massive Mount Vernon Estate.

Next up we'll travel to Nashville for some good old fashioned southern hospitality. The city is a mecca for country music lovers and has been attracting icons since the 1920's. Get your first glimpse of Nashville on a sightseeing tour with your Travel Director that will take you to Riverfront Park, Tennessee State Capitol and the 132 acre Centennial State Park, where you'll be forgiven for thinking you've stepped straight into Athens as you marvel at the incredible replica of the Parthenon.

Day 8: Nashville – Memphis (2 Nights)

Location: Nashville, Memphis

Accommodation: Crowne Plaza Memphis Downtown

We say goodbye to Nashville today and hello to the music obsessed city of Memphis. Home to the King who needs little introduction, musical history and influence run through the streets with bluesy Beale Street a fine example of this, whilst the city is also a historical heavyweight for the role it played in the Civil Rights Movement. After all, it was here in 1968 that Martin Luther King was assassinated. Tonight you’ll no doubt be keen to put Memphis’ legendary barbecue reputation to the test. Make sure you’re hungry as the gluttonous portions of smoky pulled pork and juicy ribs will defeat even the keenest of eaters.

This afternoon is free to explore your way, perhaps discovering one of the city's vibrant neighborhoods with culinary and culture treasures galore. A good place to start is the 68 acre Arts District. It's the largest urban arts district in the country with scores of performing art venues and award winning museums.

It's equally quiet and fascinating and you'll learn all about the town's unique history before moving on to the Cadillac Ranch, just outside of Amarillo.

Named the ‘Valley Between the Rocks’ by the Navajo people who arrived here centuries ago, you’ll likely feel very small and insignificant here as you learn about the geology and history of the area from a local Navajo guide on an open-air vehicle tour.

Day 21: Grand Canyon

Day 23: Las Vegas Free Time

Best trip ever!

20-Jan-2023

Our trip was absolutely outstanding, organized and just plain fun. Agnes is a wonderful tour-guide, knowledgeable and we never had to worry about anything. And Frank, our bus driver, always had a smile and gave us the smoothest bus ride ever! And I've been on buses around the world... If we ever go again (hopefully), Costsaver would be my first and only choice and hopefully we will get "team" Agnes and Frank again.
