The concept is simple - beef, cheese and bread - but a stop at the home of this deliciousness is essential. Sleep off your meat coma. Wake up in DC for a tour of the US capital's illuminated monuments. -DC Illumination tour Meals: Dinner. -If you want to see what smart really looks like, pieces of Einstein's brain are exposed at the Mütter Museum. -More than 20,000 people rush each year to the famous Wing Bowl challenge. In 2015, Patrick Deep Dish Bertoletti broke the record and ate 444 chicken wings in 30 minutes. -As an April Fool's Day prank in 1996, an ad appeared in 6 major newspapers announcing Taco Bell bought the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, and planned to rename it the Taco Liberty Bell. Naturally, hundreds of outraged calls were logged with the National Historic Park in Philly. #takeajoke Day 2 Washington, DC Is that the Washington Monument or are you just happy to see me? Be a mall rat of a different kind today, hanging out at the US Capitol Building, Reflecting Pool and War Memorials in National Mall. DC is the land of memorials, museums and monuments so don your best hipster specs and carb up on culture. Lead your trivia team to victory when you get home. -Free day Optional activities: - Baseball (seasonal) - Hop-on/off Bus Tour - Bike and Segway Tours -George Washington never lived in the White House, as it was completed a year after he passed away. -When completed in 1884, the Washington Monument was briefly the tallest building in the world. It was quickly surpassed by the Eiffel Tower. -There are 35 bathrooms in the White House. Having options is a great thing. -There is a Darth Vader gargoyle at the Washington National Cathedral in DC. Day 3 Washington, DC to Cleveland, OH Hot in Cleveland today is our tour of the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. With inductees ranging from Bill Withers (the guy who wrote 'Ain't no sunshine') to Green Day, today is tribute to good taste. -Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame entry Meals: Breakfast, dinner. -After Fiji Water ran an ad campaign joking that it wasn't bottled in Cleveland , the Cleveland water department ran.s and proved that Fiji water had the highest amounts of arsenic and other contaminants compared to Cleveland tap water. Apply chilled water to burned area. -Cleveland has set its river (Cuyahoga River) on fire 13 times. -The Thirteen Club was formed in the 1880s to debunk the superstition around the number 13. Club activities included dining with 13 members, spilling salton Friday the 13th and walking under ladders. Among its members were US presidents Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. Day 4 Cleveland to Chicago, IL Windy city here we are - the city that gave us Route 66, Walt Disney and spray paint. Ogle the Chicago River - the only backwards flowing river in the world, find the (first ever) Playboy Mansion or see a show at one of the 200 theatres. You really are in an entrepreneurial city. Meals: Breakfast, dinner. Day 5 Chicago Have your own Chicago moment and find some bars to do the cell block tango behind. Once that's out of your system, find some deep dish to replenish those lost calories. Go for a wander around Millennium Park, catch the Cubs at Wrigley Field (seasonal) or go look for Oprah. We'll check out the views from the 360 Chicago Observatory tonight Chicago Tower visit Optional activities: - Bike Tour - Food Tours - Wrigley Field Tour - Extreme Thrill Boat Ride - Architecture Cruise Day 6 Chicago to Nashville, TN (via Clermont, KY) There's nothing like tasting your poison at the source. And if it isn't already, it will most definitely become your POC (poison of choice) when we stop for a tipple at the Jim Beam distillery in Kentucky. Don't get too comfortable, Miley's hometown is next. -Jim Beam distillery tour Day 7 Nashville Get some country music smarts at the optional Country Music Hall of Fame, Grand Ole Opry and Johnny Cash museum tours. Or try your hand at hot chicken or meat and three at one of the city's downtown joints and find out why it was ranked as the 13th snobbiest city in America (who would have thought). -Free day Day 8 Nashville to Memphis Stop by in the city famous for all the music genres and see The King's resting place on your guided tour of Graceland. Continue your march on Memphis with a visit to the Civil Rights Museum, Sun Studios (where Elvis made his first record) and Rock n Soul Museum. Meals: Breakfast, dinner. Optional activities: -Sun Studios -In 1976 Elvis paid $16,000 for a midnight return flight to Denver from Memphis so that he could sample a Fools Gold Loaf. They contain an entire jar of peanut butter, a jar of grape jelly and a pound of fried bacon stuffed into a hollowed-out loaf of bread. We knew you'd ask. -At the Peabody hotel in Memphis, a group of ducks march from their rooftop Royal Duck Palace every morning at 11am to play in the hotel's fountain, before returning to their room at 5pm. This has gone on for over 70 years with dozens of duck generations. -The Robin Hoods of the world come in the form of the company that organised the McDonald's Monopoly game. An employee of theirs rigged it for 5 years, but his redeeming act of kindness was sending a $1 million game piece to St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis. Day 9 Memphis to New Orleans, LA Crank the Creedence and get down on the bayou to spot some gators, before New Orleans wraps us up in a warm, jazz-fuelled, Southern Hospitality hug whilst serving us up with a spectacular New Orleans dinner. Optional activities - Steamboat Tour - Swamp Tour -It is believed that voodoo was first introduced to America in New Orleans. Time to buy a voodoo doll. -Mardi Gras was made famous by New Orleans, but it actually originated from Mobile, Alabama. -Ellen DeGeneres was born in New Orleans, and Brangelina have a house there too. -Nicolas Cage has already bought his grave, a 9-foot pyramid in New Orleans. -After Hurricane Katrina, the emir of Qatar donated $100 million to New Orleans for the intention of rebuilding housing, schools and hospitals. Day 10 New Orleans It's not over 'til it's over. And it's not over until you've devoured one more beignet (okay, maybe three more) and done the New Orleans shuffle with a street musician in the French Quarter. Our trip ends after breakfast. (B) Accommodation We have endeavoured to select a combination of good quality hotels that reflect the character of the local area and are as centrally located as possible, all the while striving to keep the cost affordable. Standards and ratings may however differ to what you are accustomed to in your own country. The 'More Inclusions' section of this document details what type of accommodation is used for our overnight stops. If you are a solo traveller, you will always be sharing a room with someone of the same sex. If you are travelling as a couple and would prefer to have a double bed, please officially request a double room with your travel agent or Topdeck trip consultant. We never presume that two people travelling together are a couple, even if you share the same surname, unless informed otherwise. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have booked pre or post trip accommodation, please note that most hotels in North America require you to present a credit card at check-in, even if your accommodation is pre-paid. The hotel will either place a temporary hold on a set amount (called a pre-authorisation) or will make a manual swipe of the card. This is done to cover incidentals, for example you consume something from the mini-bar, or you damage the hotel room. Your card will NOT actually be charged unless you use the mini-bar, etc. Please ask the hotel front desk clerk for a further explanation when checking in if you are unsure about why they need the card. Again, this is standard procedure at most hotels and is typically not something you need to be concerned about. Optional Activities On all trips we have arranged extra activities that we think will enhance your travel experience, but you have a choice as to whether or not you will participate. These are not included in the cost of your trip. They are usually organised on a group participation basis and should be taken into consideration when budgeting your spending money. None of the Optional Activities on your trip are operated by Topdeck, nor do they form part of your contract with Topdeck for your trip. Topdeck arranges the activity as an agent of the local supplier. Should you participate in any Optional Activities your contract will be with the local supplier and their conditions will apply. Please note: while we make every effort to keep these prices as accurate and up-to-date as possible, they are subject to change and in rare circumstances the actual price may vary slightly to what is published here. Activity Location Cost Steamboat Tour New Orleans, LA $31day tour (w/o lunch) $42 (w/lunch) / $48 night (w/o dinner) or $79 (w/dinner) Swamp Tour New Orleans, LA $23 - $35 Sun Studios Memphis, TN $12 Bike Tour Chicago, IL $40 Food Tours Chicago, IL $35-$55 Wrigley Field Tour Chicago, IL $25 Extreme Thrill Boat Ride Chicago, IL $35 Architecture Cruise Chicago, IL $40 Baseball (seasonal) Washington, DC $10-$40 Hop-on/off Bus Tour Washington, DC $35-$59 Bike and Segway Tours Washington, DC Bikes : $40 - $70 Meals Your included meals are detailed in the 'More Inclusions' section of this document. On most days breakfast is included. Dinners, when included, are in local restaurants or your place of accommodation and are typically two courses. In most cases table water is provided with the meals, and if you wish to purchase additional drinks you can do so at your own expense. If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise your travel agent or Topdeck Trip Consultant when you book. But please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to arrange it, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we use will be able to cater to all dietary needs. We cannot cater for tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu. No Tip Necessary Your Topdeck crew never expect tips themselves and will not ask for any; that s not what friends do! We also know how much tipping can cost you. So go ahead, spoil yourself with the money you will save by travelling with Topdeck (just don t forget Mum s souvenir). Topdeck Travel App Our travel app has landed!
