Stop 1: New York
New York can’t sleep. It heard you’re coming. Packed with more famous sites than you can wave a pastrami sandwich at, walking through the Big Apple’s kind of like stepping onto the set of a high-budget Hollywood blockbuster. Except this time around, the camera’s firmly set on you.

Fly up to 7 times a day from London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic
Day 1-4: Enjoy New York
Explore the 'concrete jungle' that is New York city on foot, cab, subway or even helicopter! This is the city that never sleeps and with an abundance of attractions to see, neither will you! Check out sites such as the Empire State Building, American Museum of Natural History, Top of the Rock and The Museum of Modern Art all of which form part of the New York CityPASS. That's not all, as there are plenty of cool neighbourhoods to check out such as SoHo, Tribeca and Greenwich Village which all offer something very different to explore. Base yourself at the Centrally located 4.5V Westin New York at Times Square in the heart of Manhattan. Find out more about this hotel >>
Fly from New York to Philadelphia with Delta or for the adventurous type why not catch the Amtrak! (1 hr 26 mins).
Stop 2: Philadelphia
You may think you're unfamiliar with the city, but if you're a movie fan you will not be. Trading Places, Witness and, of course, Rocky, are some of the classics that were set here.
Day 4-7: Enjoy Philadelphia
Liberty, justice and freedom for all! Philadelphia is known as the 'birthplace of America' and a hotspot for historic monuments. The iconic battlefields, the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall are all there for the taking. The best way to see Philadelphia and the sights it has to offer is on a historic trolley tour. The flexible tour gives you the option to get off at any one of the stops located close to the main landmarks of the city. Check yourself into the 3V Hampton Inn Philadelphia City Center located in downtown Philly and within walking distance of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and the Betsy Ross House.

Fly from Philadelphia to Washington with Delta or for the adventurous type why not catch the Amtrak! (1 hr 55 mins)
Stop 3: Washington
Get your bearings by wandering from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol Building along the 2-mile centrepiece National Mall, home to the majority of the city’s 17 Smithsonian museums. The cast-iron dome of the Capitol marks the geographic heart of the city, from where all neighbourhoods radiate outwards. With a population of just 600,000, Washington DC is smaller than almost any major capital city you can think of, making it easily navigable on foot, by bike or via its easy Metro system.
Day 7-11: Enjoy Washington
Washington D.C., home to the White House, is one of the world's greatest capital cities. Discover the world famous monuments such as Lincoln Memorial, check out the National Zoo and also the United States Capitol. No trip to Washington is complete until you visit the lively neighbourhoods with their sophisticated dining scenes and thriving nightlife. One of the best ways to see the city is by booking onto a hop-on, hop-off guided tour which will take you to Georgetown, Washington National Cathedral and the White House. Base yourself at the 4V DoubleTree Hotel Crystal City which is just across the river from downtown D.C. and only 2 blocks away from the Pentagon City Mall. Find out more about this hotel >>
Day 11: Fly home
Fly home from Washington with Virgin Atlantic to London Heathrow.
