Our American adventure begins with a flight to New York. Arriving in the evening, we transfer to our hotel. On Day 2 we take a tour of the 'City that Never Sleeps', taking in iconic sights including leafy Central Park and bustling Fifth Avenue. We leave New York behind on Day 3, travelling by rail to Washington District Capital. On arrival, we take a guided coach tour of this capital city, before checking in to our hotel. Day 4 begins with a free morning; perhaps take the opportunity to visit Arlington National Cemetery. This afternoon, we board the Capitol Limited, for the overnight journey to Chicago.

Days 5-6

Chicago and the California Zephyr

After breakfast on board this morning, we pull into the 'Windy City.' We take a tour of the city, revisiting the 'dry and lawless years' of the 1920s and 30s that established Chicago's historic reputation as a city of bootleggers. Modern Chicago is glorious, its architecture a key highlight for many visitors. With this afternoon and the morning of Day 6 free, perhaps take this chance to stroll along the Magnificent Mile. This afternoon we board the California Zephyr for an overnight journey to Denver.

Days 7-8

Denver and Grand Junction

We arrive into Denver this morning, where we are met by a coach for a tour of the incredible features surrounding the 'Mile High City.' Colorado is famed for its natural beauty, and during our tour we see a slice of it, including Red Rocks Park, Echo Lake, and of course, the stunning Rocky Mountains that line the Continental Divide. Early on Day 8, we leave Denver behind, travelling through the Rockies by rail en-route to Grand Junction.
