This ten-day tour will be filled with gourmet food, great art, and the cultural history of the American East Coast. You will indulge in soft-shell crab, blintzes and Ropa Viejo. Work off the calories with strolls through gorgeous gardens and visits to the military memorials of Washington, the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan Museums and historic war sites.
