From the Big Easy to the Big Apple, this roadtrip swings north along the East Coast and captures the best cities, historical monuments, and beautiful scenery from New Orleans to New York and everything in between. Embrace big city beats, Nashville grooves, and the traditional twang of the Appalachian Mountains. As always, centrally located hostels in the cities and campsites in the wilderness keep you in the heart of the action. Skip flying and discover country roots and the earthly delights that come with staying grounded.
For the night in New Orleans, we stay in a hotel close to the city centre with multi-share accommodation. If you would like to see all of the popular sites of this vibrant city, we recommend you book pre-tour accommodation.
