The destinations below feature the rich cultural heritage and history to be found in the Eastern United States - places where our nation was colonized, created, fought for and fought over, and where our government resides today. For convenience, we've separated these destinations into cities and hubs; however, most groups choose to combine two or more of these destinations into an overall itinerary. Please let us know how we can help you create and deliver your own unique expedition into US History.
