Explore the different neighbourhoods. Spend time in Chelsea, with its trendy shops, boutiques, restaurants and galleries as well as jazz clubs and off-Broadway theatres. Or how about Greenwich Village for a laid-back feel, with cafes, shops and clubs. Then onto the political epicentre of Washington DC, explore US Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial. The world-famous White House is a must too!
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.
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. Take a long leisurely walk through beautiful Times Square, if you fancy pop on some skates and take to the ice! Take the ferry over to Staten Island to see the famous Statue of Liberty. As evening falls, take a trip to the 'Top of the Rock' for breathtaking views across the city that never sleeps. 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.
Save time and hop on an internal flight from New York to Washington!
Welcome to Washington DC, we think you will love Georgetown so take a visit there first! Stroll along the pretty sidewalks and stop for a bite to eat in one of the many tasty restaurants. DC is the home of museums, and most offer free entry so a trip to a few should be on the cards. Head to the gates of the White House and get your camera out for your close up! Fancy some more sightseeing? Be sure to check out The Lincoln Memorial to get closer to history. There are some great shops around Georgetown so perhaps head back for some souvenirs.
Fly home from Washington to London Heathrow.
Don't forget you can pre-book many of New York's finest attractions through Virgin Holidays, such as a Gray Line New York Bus Tour, Broadway Shows or a New York CityPASS® .
