End your exchange year with a road trip you will never forget. Travel with us for three weeks – and you will experience everything from sunny California, through the deepest Midwest and also the trendy city of New York. And build friendships for life along the way!
Travel with experienced STS leaders in mini vans through 15 states. Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, New Orleans, Washington DC and NYC are some of the stops along the way. In urban areas we stay in hotels and hostels and camp in beautiful rural areas. Water rafting, jeep excursion, sightseeing and a helicopter ride are among the possible activities.
We start off in Los Angeles where you meet the group and the leaders and get a flying start at Universal Studios, followed by a drive through the Mojave Desert to Las Vegas. Here you’ll experience the almost unreal feeling of seeing the world’s most famous buildings in one street, The Strip.
For two days during the first week you will also get to see the Grand Canyon National Park, which is arguably the highpoint of the whole adventure. Some trekking and lots of photographing will take place. This is a breathtaking environment, just like the next stop: the Navajo reservation in Monument Valley.
The tour continues to Colorado, Mesa Verde National Park and the Anasazi people’s cliff villages. On your way south you will stop in Santa Fe, at the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico and San Antonio and Houston in Texas. The week ends in the fascinating city of New Orleans.
During the last week the vans are northbound, through Mississippi and Tennessee. Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis and white water rafting is on the agenda before we reach Washington, DC where the White House and the Capital is waiting. If the group is interested you can also visit the FBI headquarters, the Arlington Cemetery and some of the Smithsonian Museums.
Our last stop is New York City. Fifth Avenue, Central Park, Broadway and Times Square are among the sights you’ll visit. You can also take the elevator up in the Empire State Building, catch the ferry to Liberty Island’s famous Statue of Liberty – or just go for a shopping spree.
