Wheels down in Washington DC, take off from New York or Boston 

The East Coast of the U.S. has a multitude of iconic bucket-list destinations – tick them off in one go, when you book one of our open-jaw offers. Whether city-hopping by train or taking a great American road trip, you can explore Washington DC*, New York, Boston and more.

*Cathay Pacific launches a four-times-weekly service to Washington DC on 15 September 2018.

Washington DC monuments

 

Salute to the capital 

Washington DC is like no other city in the U.S.; within its relatively compact borders, you’ll experience one of the most cosmopolitan mixes of people, history, and culture – and lots of great museums. Guardian of the city’s most acclaimed treasures, the Smithsonian Institution – the world’s largest museum complex – houses more than 138 million objects and works of art. Other institutions are no less impressive, including the Newseum and the International Spy Museum, and worth a stop before visiting the iconic sites like the White House, the Capitol, and the various memorials.

Beyond the buildings, however, ‘DC’ is a sociable place, with countless great dining and drinking options. Try the many restaurants and bars in Penn Quarter, Capitol Hill, Adams Morgan and U Street for some of the more popular tables in town.

New York Statues of Liberty mural

 

New York from a new angle

New York may need no introduction, but there’s always a different angle to explore beyond Times Square, the Empire State Building, or the Statue of Liberty. The booming area between West 34th and West 14th Streets, for example, offers a glimpse of Manhattan's penchant for reinventing itself.

Whether you’re on a pleasant promenade along the High Line – the elevated park created from a former railway (from which you can peer into a recently unveiled, Zaha Hadid-designed apartment building) – or simply wandering the art galleries of West Chelsea, you’ll find this part of town brimming with energy and many a moment to photograph. Wander down to Gansevoort Street and marvel at Renzo Piano’s Whitney Museum of American Art, which sits as an architectural exclamation mark at the High Line's terminus.

Boston old state houses

 

Beautiful, walkable Boston 

Whether you’re setting off on an exploratory jaunt of historic New England, or settling in to study at a famous university, Boston is a great point of departure – and arrival. Better still, if arriving by train from DC or New York, you’ll find the city’s cobblestoned centre eminently walkable. Just a short wander from South Station is the booming Seaport District – home to spectacular seafood and harbour views, and the Institute of Contemporary Art.

Follow the red bricks of the Freedom Trail to the North End, Boston's oldest residential neighbourhood. Walk up Salem Street, past the cream-filled cannolis of Bova's Bakery, and you will reach the peaceful Copp's Hill Burying Ground. An amble through the classic destinations of Boston Common, Beacon Hill, and the Back Bay neighbourhoods round out the must-see spots.
