Big Apple to Big Easy - 4 Days

See the best of the East Coast on this alternative bus tour from New York to New Orleans! Grab a quick bite of the Big Apple, then head with us to Washington, DC ? capital of the U.S.A.! Trek and camp in the Great Smoky Mountains before we roll into New Orleans the next morning and drop you off in the French Quarter.

Day 0 & 1- New York City/ Washington D.C.:
Leave the hustle and bustle of the "Big Apple" behind, as we strike south to the nation's capitol, Washington D.C. on our overnight drive. The capitol of the United States, Washington D.C., houses the motherlode of historical sights. Explore the museums of theSmithsonian Institution and stroll down theNational Mall past the all-star line-up of national treasures, the Washington Monument, the Reflection Pool, and the Lincoln Memorial.

Day 2 - Great Smoky Mountains National Park: 
Trek by a splashing stream to roaring waterfalls, discover your own hidden spot overlooking the fog-layered flanks of the hills, or relax with your camera handy. Hike through the forest and keep a watchful eye for one of the furry black bears that call thisUNESCO World Heritage site home.

Day 3 - Smoky Mountains/Gatlinburg:
Ride the wilds of nature on horseback in America's most visited national park or hop on the bus to Gatlinburg, Tennessee to check out the local attractions like the Aquarium of the Smokies and Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Reunite for an amazing gourmet dinner, and tell your stories during our night on the bus.?

Day 4 - New Orleans: 
Rise and shine! New Orleans isn't only about the night life in the French Quarter! After a morning beignet and cafe au lait, check out street performers inJackson Square, and listen to the sidewalk sounds of Zydeco, Dixieland jazz, and Delta blues. Saunter into a Jazz club, sample Cajun fare and live it up with your friends on Bourbon Street. Not ready for the fun to end? ?Hop back on the bus after experiencing New Orleans, and cross the rest of the country with us on our Southern Dream!
