A great American road trip is a classic vacation experience. Ker & Downey shows you some of our favorite stops on a cross-country journey in America that will take you from sea to shining sea.
The capital of the country has more to see beyond the White House. The melting pot of cultures here makes Washington, DC a global place with a fusion of activities. But it is its historical charm that really stands out. Wander along the tree-lined avenues of row houses and see the colonial architecture dating back to 1751 in nearby Georgetown. The cobblestone streets and the old homes, each with their own stories, will take you back in time.
Feel comforted in the south by the sounds of blues emanating from the bars on Beale Street. Elvis Presley put Memphis on the map and his Graceland mansion is full of his memorabilia, making it a must-see on any music lover’s itinerary.
Just a short hop over from Memphis you’ll find the heart of country music. There’s a special charm and energy in Nashville. The city attracts country singers from around the nation, hoping to get their big break. Experience southern hospitality on a Ker & Downey journey that takes you to the Grand Ole Opry, where legends like Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood have performed.
Bourbon connoisseurs will love visiting the distilleries to learn how this spirit is aged and bottled. Whiskey production has been part of the fabric of Kentucky since the 18th century. Horse racing is also an important part of the culture, and farms and trails dot the pretty countryside in a state known as the horse racing capital of the world.
The Grand Canyon National Park is one of the famous sights to see in the United States. Soar over this amazing marvel of mother nature in a helicopter and get a bird’s eye view of the stunning hues of red rock, and fully appreciate the sheer immensity of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This sizzling city has a vibrant melange of food, music, and good times. The French influence remains strong in the architecture and mouth-watering dishes served up.
