The Mid-Atlantic region in the United States is found in the overlap between the North-eastern and South-eastern states. Comprised of Virginia, North Carolina, New York and several others, join us to follow in the footsteps of the country’s first patriots to discover America’s mid-Atlantic states on our Choice Touring by Globus tour, The Bold & the Brewtiful: Mid-Atlantic America by Design!
Trek though Shenandoah National Park
Just 120 kilometres from Washington D.C. is Shenandoah National Park, one of the East Coast’s most incredible parks. Shenandoah is famous for its variety of well-maintained hiking paths with jaw-dropping scenery around every corner. Join a local park naturalist for a leisurely half-day guided hike to witness the beauty of some of Shenandoah’s cascading waterfalls. Complete with a packed picnic lunch, this is the perfect YourChoice excursion for the outdoor enthusiasts!
Taste the local brews on offer
If you love the relaxed vibe that a smaller city has to offer, Winston-Salem, North Carolina is the place to be! While it has a longstanding history in the tobacco industry, its cobblestone streets and friendly locals meld together to create a unique charm. Visit Foothills Brewing, the area’s oldest craft brewery, to try a selection of their finest craft brews. A local guide will accompany you to the next brewery so you can drink in (literally!) the history of Winston-Salem along the way.
Ride amongst the wildlife
Ranked as #5 of 102 things to do in Virginia Beach by TripAdvisor, the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1938. Spanning a whopping 9,000+ acres, the refuge features fresh water marshes, ocean beaches, forests and sand dunes. Jump onto a tram for a ride through the refuge where your knowledgeable tram driver will share stories and facts about the ecosystem and its history. The refuge is home to deer, wild pigs, foxes and hundreds of bird species so keep your eyes peeled!
