103-Day Tour from Honolulu to Las Vegas
The National Park Service turns 100 in 2016 and to celebrate, Globus is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit 34 of the country’s exciting national parks and historic sights. From archeological treasures to stunning and dramatic scenery, this national parks tour traveling across the United States is as unique as the national parks visited.
From the vast deserts and lava beds to alpine landscapes full of lakes, waterfalls, rugged mountains, and wildflowers, breathtaking scenery awaits you on this marvelous vacation. Marvel at the remarkable rock formations—sandstone cliffs, hoodoos, and arches—in Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Arches National Parks. See stunning mountains, gorgeous alpine scenery, and fascinating wildlife on visits to Denali, Glacier, Yosemite, Rocky Mountain, Grand Teton, Mount Rainier, Acadia, and Yellowstone National Parks. Wait until you see the size of the trees in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks and the volcanic landscapes in Hawai’i Volcanoes and Haleakala National Parks. Other scenic highlights include multiple cruises, including a cruise into Hells Canyon, home to North America’s deepest river gorge, and a 7-night Alaska cruise.
This national parks tour also gives you an opportunity to step back in time and experience America’s history where it happened. At Mesa Verde National Park, see cliff dwellings inhabited by the Ancestral Pueblo long before Europeans explored North America. Visit Yorktown Battlefield, where the British surrendered to Washington’s troops in 1781; be inspired by the determination of the Continental Army at Valley Forge National Historical Park; visit the birthplace of America at Independence Hall, where both the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were debated and signed, at Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park; witness the site of the crucial turning point of the Civil War at Gettysburg National Military Park; and honor troops who gave their lives at Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona Memorial and Washington DC’s Vietnam Veterans, Korean War Veterans, and World War II Memorials.
Throughout this tour, Globus has arranged special experiences to help make your vacation unique. Enjoy stargazing programs in Death Valley and Sequoia National Parks—two of the most breathtaking places to watch the stars! Learn about Shenandoah as you enjoy S’mores around a fire, and witness buffalo in their natural environment on a buffalo safari in Custer State Park. Enjoy wine tastings in Sonoma, Temecula, Washington’s Wine Region, and Colorado’s Wine Country. Or how about Colonial-style dinners at historic taverns in Williamsburg and Gettysburg?
