The Great American Crossing

Kick off this extensive 20-day tour in New York and make a stop at every must-see city on the way until you reach the golden coast of the Pacific. The Great American Crossing trip will push the limits of your imagination, taking you on an improbable journey. Visit the cities that reflect the heart and soul of American liberty like Philadelphia and Washington D.C.. Explore the natural beauties of New England from Niagara to the Great Lakes. There is nothing like the urban flair of Chicago, and you will have enough time to explore its architectural nuggets. From there, the landscape will change dramatically as you pass through grand mountain ranges westward. Your time in Bryce Canyon will be as colorful as the rugged terrain, and the Mojave Desert will put you in a unique mood before you end your trip with four days on the shiny coast.
