Meet with the group and prep yourself for an unforgettable adventure. Take a trip to Little Havana to people-watch in the cafés, stroll by pretty pastel houses and dodge the Speedo-clad skaters of South Beach. After an authentic Cuban dinner, see Miami come to life at night (if this place could get more lively) and join a club crawl.
Day 2: Miami to Orlando
Today we take an airboat tour, shoot across the Everglades and (almost) get tangled in the mangroves. This is pretty much the closest you’ll get to flying without really leaving the ground. Later, prepare to revive your inner child as we head to Orlando. Roller coaster ride, anyone?
Day 3: Orlando
If you’ve got your swimmers, get splash-tastic at one of Orlando’s water parks – or visit a galaxy that’s not so far, far away by hitting up the Star Wars attractions at Walt Disney World. If theme parks just aren’t your bag then you could check out some swanky spas or wine bars. Also an option: explore Kennedy Space Center.
Day 4: Orlando to Savannah, Georgia
Wave goodbye to the Magic Kingdom – you’re en route to the bona fide southern belle that is Savannah, so get ready to see plenty of 18th century buildings and dreamy tree-lined walkways.
Day 5: Savannah
Slow the pace with an optional Slow Ride pub crawl, or simply take a wander around the city. Watch out for horse-drawn carriages!
Day 6: Savannah to Charlotte, North Carolina
Swap Savannah for North Carolina’s biggest city. Take it easy with a stroll around Charlotte’s museums and sample some old-school foodie classics, or opt in to go fast and furious on a Speedway tour.
Day 7: Charlotte to Washington, District of Columbia
In our sights today: the bright lights of the US capital. Tomorrow you’ll have the chance to explore Washington by day, but tonight it’s all about crossing the Potomac River into DC and enjoying an illuminated tour of the capital’s monuments. The White House at night is a sight not to be missed, trust us.
Day 8: Washington, D.C.
‘Gram yourself in front of some of the USA’s most iconic buildings, recreate famous movie moments, play spot the senator... Today you can get a real feel for the powerhouse that is DC. Get your bearings and tick off all the must-see places with an optional segway or bike tour. However you travel, this is the place to clue yourself up on all things American history and visit some of the many memorials, monuments and museums.
Day 9: Washington, D.C. to New York City
It’s time to leave the capital behind for a pitstop in Philly, complete with – you guessed it – a driving tour. For a bird’s eye view of the city, you can also choose to head up to the One Liberty Observation Deck. After Philadelphia, there’s just one stop left: NYC, where we officially sign off from Topdecker duty. Sob.
