Day 1-2 New York / Philadelphia / Washington DC

Start your Southerner adventure this morning and head off to Philadelphia. Whilst you're here, take a trip to the famous ‘Rocky' steps and perfect your pose for that all-important photo. Head to Liberty Bell and treat your taste buds to a famous Philly cheese steak lunch - not to be missed! With a full stomach, plug your headphones in and gaze out of the window at the sights of Eastern America as you begin your journey to Washington DC. Once you're here, wander around the enthralling halls of the Smithsonian museum before spending the evening surrounded by the beautiful illuminated monuments of DC.

Day 3 Appalachian Mountains

Cruise towards the Deep South, keeping your camera at the ready for bumpy peaks and picturesque scenery amongst clear, crisp skies. Stretch your legs and freshen up with a hike along the tumbling cascading waters of Crabtree falls.

Day 4-5 Nashville / Memphis

Known as ‘the Music City' and home to country music institution ‘The Grand Ole Ospry', your next stop is Nashville. Whilst you're here, bop away to some live music at the Wild Horse Saloon and then hit the dance floor for some line dancing with the locals. Hopefully not feeling too weary, you'll then head to Memphis where you can pay your respects to ‘The King' and visit Elvis' final resting place at Graceland.

Day 6-7 New Orleans

Welcome to the Deep South. Make sure you have saved some energy for the incredible nightlife and charm that New Orleans has to offer. Check out the vibe of the infamous French Quarter, the oldest and most visited part of the city, and sip on a drink in one of the many bars before heading to one of the fascinating dark jazz clubs.

Day 8 Lafayette

Your next stop is the heart of the Cajun country, Lafayette, Louisiana. Tuck into a traditional Louisiana submarine sandwich, the Po'Boy, a great way to top up your energy levels for a night of jammin' at the Blue Moon Saloon.

Day 9 San Antonio

Head off to San Antonio, Texas, where its famous landmark is the Alamo, the site of the famous battle. This is well worth seeing in order to appreciate San Antonio's past although some find it's smaller than expected. Spend the day making the most of this fine city, soak up its rich, vibrant culture and treat yourself to some great food whilst you're here.

Day 10-11 Big Bend National Park

Named for the sharp twist in the Rio Grande River, miles of snaking trails through the stark wilderness make it a great hiking spot. Make sure you find a good place to watch the spectacular sunset, check out the Lost Mine Trail' and soak your tired feet in some gorgeous hot springs.

Day 12 White Sands National Monument

Explore the endless sea of white sand and if you're feeling brave, why not slide down the dunes on a sand board? A great way to get your adrenaline pumping!

Day 13 Tombstone

Grab your Stetson as you're now in the Wild West! Don't miss the re-enactment of the O.K. Corral Shoot-Out, the most famous gun fight into the history of the Wild West! Yee ha!

Day 14 Betty and Rusty's Cowboy Camp

Your Wild West cowboy camp awaits where you can opt to ride through the hills by horseback, trotting your way through the iconic saguaro cacti, with its gigantic curved arms. Upon returning to camp, you'll be welcomed by an open fire and a delicious dinner where all you have to do is chill under the stars.

Day 15 Monument Valley

Enjoy an included Navajo guided tour of this stunning valley, the Navajo Nation's greatest treasure and the most photographed place in America. You'll be whisked off to a remote area made famous by scores of celebrated western movies and your guide will feed you information about the past and present on the tribal lands. Tonight you'll spend the night in a traditional Navajo Hogan, listening to secret stories and legends around the warming campfire.

Day 16-17 Grand Canyon National Park

Be prepared to be awe-struck by this natural wonder of the world. Hike to breathtaking viewpoints or opt to soar above the canyon's walls in a helicopter.

Day 18-19 Las Vegas

Make a pit-stop at Seligman on the famous Route 66 before arriving at the dazzling lights and buzzing atmosphere of the incredible strip in fabulous Las Vegas. Wander in and out of spectacular hotels including Caesars Palace and The Bellagio, try your hand at the slots, or if the roulette table leaves you feeling lucky, cruise around in your very own stretch limo. It's brash, bizarre and brilliant; Viva Las Vegas!
