The east coast of America is home to scintillating cities, historic towns, sun-drenched beaches, thrilling theme parks and some of the most stunning natural scenery to be found anywhere in the United States.
Regarded as bustling and busy compared with the west coast's laidback and languid feel, this area of the States has every ingredient for an unforgettable holiday. For theme parks a-plenty head to Orlando in Florida, although if thrills and spills aren't quite enough this state also boasts the Latin culture and cuisine, non-stop nightlife and amazing beaches of Miami.
Further north sits Washington DC, capital city and home to the White House, Pentagon, Supreme Court and more museums than you can visit in a whole lifetime of holidays. Philadelphia is comfortably sandwiched between Washington DC and New York and is noted for thriving port and industrial history. The city is packed with landmarks of early American history and a huge variety of tourist attractions, including zoological gardens, museums and galleries. Located in the state of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is also a good starting point for touring the area and learning more about Amish communities, of which there are many in Pennsylvania.
Philadelphia's big brother, New York, needs little introduction. NYC is best described as the world in one city – whatever your taste and whatever your age, you’ll be sure to find plenty to delight, amaze and amuse.
If you prefer a little rest and relaxation and some spectacular scenery, head to New England. This region is famed for its quaint towns, pretty landscapes and fresh seafood dishes. The region's biggest city is Boston. Located in the state of Massachusetts, Boston will seem instantly familiar. Whether that’s the English feel, the Irish roots or because you were a fan of classic US TV comedy Cheers, you’ll feel right at home in this welcoming and historic harbour city, where seafood is a must.
Many visitors opt for fly-drive holidays on the US east coast, as the fascinating destinations and great roads along the eastern seaboard make a road trip interesting and easy. You could concentrate your holiday in Florida, touring Miami, Orlando or the Florida Keys, or create an itinerary in the north around the beauty of New England, where the coastline of Maine and the mountains of New Hampshire are sure to captivate. The cities of New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Boston are easily absorbed during a two-week break too. Not to be forgotten between the far south and north are the coastal states of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland, where mountain regions tumble down to the coast and stunning beaches.
You don’t have to decide between full on city life and quiet coastal pleasures, as driving during east coast USA holidays is easy and the cost of car hire reasonable.
