The Historic North-eastern United States | Newmarket Holidays

Although the North-eastern United States is filled with historic sites and fascinating historic architecture, the region remains as vibrant and essential as it always has. For people looking to explore this vast and fascinating country, there are few better places to start. A tour of the North-east usually includes the almost incomparable natural splendour of the Niagara Falls.Travellers can also discover the history of Philadelphia, the original capital city of the United States, before venturing towards Washington, D.C., the present capital. And, of course, New York City dominates the Northeastern states from it’s position as one of USA’s , and indeed the world’s, truly great cities – beautiful, vibrant and endlessly fascinating.

Philadelphia is a history lover’s paradise. The ‘City of Brotherly Love’ is home to historically Newmarket Holidaysimportant sites like the Liberty Bell and numerous other monuments that are among the most remarkable in the United States. However, Philadelphia is also a busy, modern city that retains its historical feel while offering an enthralling, more contemporary side. Further south, Washington, D.C., the present capital, is one of the world’s more famous cities and the seat of modern US power. Here, too, there is more than history and politics at play. Luminous marble memorials are never far from great music, museums and food. Still, even a tour of just the monuments in Washington, D.C. is essential for any traveller to the US.

A drive north will take the traveller to iconic New York City. While the city that never sleeps is always changing, it has never lost its unique character. Astonishing museums, restaurants, Broadway shows and skyscrapers await. Manhattan is the most visited of the city’s five boroughs, and indeed, no short visit can take in all of New York City’s boroughs in their entirety. Manhattan is home to most of the famous sights, including the Statue of Liberty, as well as a vibrancy and bustle that is all its own.

After discovering the remarkable cities of the region, many travellers opt to witness the Niagara Falls in person. No postcard can communicate the experience of standing before these plunging waters and witnessing one of the world’s most remarkable natural sights.

UK specialist tour operator Newmarket Holidays offers escorted holidays that cover the main attractions in this region of the United States. Quality accommodations and travel at real value for money make these escorted holidays realistic options for UK travellers who want to discover this corner of America.
