Days 1 - 3: New York

You can fly directly to New York from most international UK airports, taking between 8-10 hours on average. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your centrally located 4-star hotel, where you will spend the next three nights. 

New York is bursting with places to visit and things to do, from museums to monuments and everything in between. Why not catch a show on Broadway or head up the Empire State building for stunning views across the city.

Days 4 - 5: Preston
Distance: 160 miles

Leave the high rises of central New York for the Cruise America depot in Newark where you'll pick up your motorhome. Head around Long Island Sound before driving northeast towards your first stop in the Preston area. You may want to stop at the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport where the flamboyant circus man was once Mayor.

Days 6 - 7: Sandwich
Distance: 125 miles

Today you will head down the scenic eastern shore of the Thames River (yes, you read that correctly!) to visit Mystic Seaport. This was once a great whaling port and shipyard for fast clippers and has a splendid outdoor museum. Here you can discover many old ships and examples of New England life two hundred years ago.

A visit to Newport, Rhode Island is a must, to see the massive summer mansions of the Vanderbilts. This was the setting for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and the mansions are quite something to behold.

Days 8 - 15: Plymouth to Mount Blue State Park

Days 8 - 9: Plymouth
Distance: 55 miles

Head to Plymouth where, in 1620, the Mayflower landed the Pilgrims. Your drive from Mystic Seaport to Plymouth is relatively short, but there are plenty of things to see on the way. Be sure to visit Hyannis, the Kennedy family’s hometown. You may also wish to make a stop at the Plimoth Plantation, a recreation of a Pilgrim’s village from 1627, where you can learn about what life was like 400 years ago. Another option is Plymouth Rock where it is said that the Pilgrims first set foot in America. 

Days 10 - 11: Salisbury Beach
Distance: 145 miles

Continue north and past the city of Boston and make stop in Lexington where the first skirmish that started the Revolutionary War took place. North Salem in New Hampshire is also worth a stop as it is home to America’s 4,000-year-old Stonehenge. Equally, a stop in Salem is worthwhile to learn about the history of the infamous witchcraft trials.

Days 12 - 13: Bar Harbour
Distance: 235 miles

Today will take you to Maine with its dramatic and scenic coastline. Your destination is Bar Harbour on Mount Desert Island which is surrounded by the cliffs and seascapes of Acadia National Park.

Days 14 - 15: Mount Blue State Park
Distance: 160 miles

Head inland to Bangor, Maine’s capital, and then on to Mount Blue State Park where you can discover wildlife such as moose, red squirrels and the more elusive black bear and coyote. Places to visit include the picturesque Webb Beach and nearby Center Hill.

Days 16 - 26: Bethlehem to New York

Days 16 - 18: Bethlehem
Distance: 100 miles

Cross into New Hampshire where mountains dominate the scenery. You'll get a good look at Mount Washington, sitting 6,288 feet, as you drive further into the White Mountain National Forest. You could take a trip to the summit of Mount Washington on the 1869 coal-fired cog railway.

Days 19 - 20: Gifford Woods
Distance: 125 miles

Today you will cross into Vermont and on to the year-round resort surrounding Killington Peak. As you pass through Hanover make a stop at the world-famous Dartmouth College, established in 1769, the ninth oldest institution of higher education in the United States and one of the nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution.

Days 21 - 22: Arlington
Distance: 60 miles

As you head south to New York State, make a stop in Arlington, right on the edge of Green Mountain National Forest. Not too far away in Massachusetts is the Norman Rockwell Museum, worth a visit for his depictions of America's 'golden age'.

Day 23 - 24: Lazy River
Distance: 140 miles

As you come towards the end of your tour, the route takes you into New York State as you head south following the Hudson River. Eventually, this will bring you to Hyde Park, the birthplace and home of Franklin D Roosevelt where both he and wife Eleanor are buried.

Days 25 - 26: New York
Distance: 75 miles

This morning you return your RV to the depot before transferring to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.
