Northeast USA Trips & Tours

The American Northeast is filled with rich history, beautiful landscapes, and quaint towns and bustling cities alike. Northeast tours are an excellent way to learn more about the founding of our country, explore historical landmarks, and visit world-famous cities like Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia. 

At Road Scholar, we have educational programs that bring you to some of the best places to visit in the Northeast. Take a look at our top places to explore in the Northeast below.

What Is the Northeast USA Best Known For?

Northeast America consists of New England and the Mid-Atlantic states of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. As members of the thirteen original colonies, the Northeast is known for its rich history that saw events such as the Boston Tea Party, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the American Revolution, and the Civil War. 

Through Northeast tours, you can take educational tours to learn about these events first-hand, such as exploring Boston to learn about the birthplace of American liberty or learning about the whaling communities of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

In addition to its decorated history, the Northeast is known for its pristine beauty — most notably its fall foliage. People from across the globe visit New England during autumn to marvel at gold, red, and orange mountains while partaking in fall activities like hiking, apple picking, and hayrides.

Other things to do in the Northeast include exploring the metropolises of New York City, Boston, and Philadelphia. These iconic cities are filled with diversity, delicious cuisine, and world-class attractions like museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Museum & Library in Boston, and the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia. These are just some of the best places to visit in the Northeast, and with Road Scholar, you can find a program that suits your interests.
