East Coast USA

The east coast states of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania contain some of the USA’s most iconic cities, historic sites and breathtaking scenery – from the Manhattan skyline to Philadelphia’s historic heart, the Adirondack mountains to The Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls and the battlefields of Gettysburg.

New York is undoubtedly one of the greatest cities in the world with an irresistible allure and countless sights ranging from classics such as the Statue of Liberty, Central Park and Brooklyn Bridge to newer attractions like One World Trade Center and Hudson Yards with its incredible Vessel, High Line and Edge Sky Deck.

New York State shares Niagara Falls with Canada, a wonder of the world and one of nature’s most incredible sights with three sets of falls and a choice of stunning viewpoints. The nearby Finger Lakes contain amazing gorges, forests, vineyards and some 150 waterfalls include towering Taughannock, which is higher than Niagara.

On the south-east coast of Long Island, the resorts of The Hamptons have attracted New Yorkers for years to a cluster of beautiful beachside communities for sunbathing, surfing and seafood.

Northern New York State has some spectacular mountain scenery. The Catskills are a haven for hiking, fishing and canoeing with 300,000 acres of mountains, lakes and waterfalls. Further north, the Adirondacks are the USA’s largest park outside Alaska, offering adventures among mountains, forests, rivers, waterfalls and lakes including Lake George, known as Queen of the American Lakes, and Lake Placid with its proud winter sports heritage. The capital of New York State Albany has historic architecture in its beautiful Empire State Plaza, including the chateau-like New York State Capitol.

Neighbouring Pennsylvania is extraordinarily rich in historic heritage. Philadelphia is the birthplace of the USA with sites like Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The surrounding Philadelphia Countryside contains iconic Revolutionary War site Valley Forge National Historic Park and the Brandywine Valley, known as America’s Garden Capital.

Gettysburg was the scene of the largest battlefield ever fought in North America during the Civil War, and the original 6,000-acre battlefield remains as a memorial, lined with countless monuments, plaques and original cannons. Lancaster County is home to the USA’s oldest and largest Amish community. Step back in time in a county of horses and buggies, windmills, traditional farming and hand-made goods. In western Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh is one of America’s most under-rated cities with over 400 bridges and fascinating museums like Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Andy Warhol Museum.

The highlight of New Jersey is Cape May, one of the best beach resorts on the East Coast with Victorian architecture, fine dining and unrivalled bird-watching. Meanwhile, the northerly Sussex County has beautiful mountains, forests and rivers in High Point State Park.
