Trip Info

1 - New York Area & Finger Lakes
Departing the big city you make your way towards the Finger Lakes - we're pretty sure you're going to love it here! You'll find an abundance of vineyards and award-winning wines, you won't know where to start. This is a great introduction to New York State and perfect first day of the tour. Accommodation: Motel included

2 - Niagara Falls & Toronto
First up today is the truly epic sight of Niagara Falls. Made up of three waterfalls this mighty natural wonder will blow you away at its sheer size. The noise it makes is pretty immense too, what it lacks in height it definitely makes up in volume! Bordering the USA and Canada, the best way to see the falls is to take the optional `Maid of the Mist' cruise - prepare to get wet as you get a truly awesome perspective of the falls up close and personal. Then it's time to travel cross Rainbow Bridge and into beautiful Canada. Toronto is where all the trendy people are at, with high-fashion stores and cosy cafes on College and Queen Streets, there is no shortage of cool places to hang out. View the city from above with a trip to the top of the CN Tower and gaze across the beautiful Lake Ontario. Toronto is the city that everyone wants to be seen in and you'll find an eclectic mix of cultures here. You may even spot a celeb or two as they too can't get enough of this awesome city. Accommodation: Hostel included

3-4 - Montreal
Expect a little European flair, as Montreal is the second largest French speaking city in the world (beaten only by Paris). Museums, galleries, eateries and clubs make up a cocktail of the best bits from both continents and we promise you you're definitely in for a good time here. Don't miss out on the `Underground City' including 30km devoted to all things retail, or an adventurous jet-boat ride on the river. Ever eaten your dinner in complete darkness? Well, now you can with a visit to O'Noir, a restaurant where you eat in the pitch black - make sure you don't wear your best clothes, it's sure to get messy. Accommodation: Hostel included

5-6 - Stowe
If 'Chunky Monkey' and the 'Phish Food' mean something to you, then you're going to love Stowe as you enjoy an included tour of the one and only Ben & Jerry's ice-cream factory. During the winter, this 'Ski Capital of the East' puts on an incredible winter spread, but remains a highlight during summer months. With hiking, biking and swimming on offer, this really is an adventure lover's playground. Accommodation: Motel included

7-8 - Boston
Head to Boston for a slice of history starting with a walk along the Freedom Trail and a stop at some of America's historical hotspots. But Boston's not all about the history, we've laid on a trip to Harvard University to see the brains of America hard at work. Sports lovers rejoice as Boston is famous for its baseball and football teams, so try and catch a game to experience the real America. A trip to Boston wouldn't be complete without a trip to the famous 'Cheers' bar for a cheeky beverage. Accommodation: Hostel included

9 - New York Area
Head back towards the 'city that never sleeps', New York. For a storybook ending to an incredible trip, we highly recommend adding on a night or two to explore this incredible city. There's so much to see and do here, from a trip to the top of the Empire State Building, to a shopping spree along Fifth Avenue, the opportunities are endless. If you really don't know where to begin why not take a city tour with Urban Adventures? This tour ends at our gateway hotel at approximately 17:00 hrs. We can book you post-tour accommodation at our gateway hotel if required. If you are planning to fly tonight, please do not book a flight that departs before 21:00 hrs.

10-11 - New York (NEW YEAR SPECIAL DEPARTURE ONLY)
Our 22nd Dec departures will spend 2 extra nights in New York at the end of the trip, finishing on 1st January. The extra nights will be in a centrally located hostel and the group will use public transport. (Please note this departure is only available for passengers aged 21 and over).
