Setting sail from New York

The Big Apple is one of the world's most iconic, cosmopolitan cities, a place that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. From the lofty heights of the Manhattan skyscrapers to the hipster hangouts of resurgent Brooklyn, New York City buzzes with energy and excitement, and there's never been a better time to visit. Cultural highlights include the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts and the theatres of Broadway, and the culinary scene is arguably the most exciting in the US, with an ever-changing smorgasbord of innovative restaurants, pop-ups and fashionable street food trucks.

Our tip

Head to the ‘Top of the Rock’ at the Rockefeller Centre, for views rivalling those at from the observation platform of the Empire State Building, but without the crowds.

Arriving in Québec City

Québec City, the capital of French-speaking Canada, is one of the North American continent's most beguiling cities. The pretty old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a joy to behold; the cobbled streets and church spires are enclosed within the old city walls, and many of the buildings date back to the 17th century. In January and February the Winter Carnival, one of the world's biggest winter festivals, brings colour and celebration to lift the hibernal gloom, while in summer the streets are filled with musicians and street performers in period costume.

Don't miss

For fantastic views, go to the Terrasse Dufferin, on the clifftop high above the St Lawrence River, then take the funicular to the Old Lower Town.

Ways to make it better
The Plaza Hotel, New York

Stay a few more nights in New York

There are just so many hotels to choose from, but we recommend The Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue next to Central Park.

Helicopter over New York

See New York in style

Take to the air on a helicopter sightseeing trip of Manhattan Island, the best way to see the city’s skyline.

Auberge Saint-Antoine, Québec City

Where to stay in Québec City

Chateau Frontenac is tempting, but we choose the Auberge St Antoine.

Montmorency Falls, Québec City

Recommended private tour

Get out of the city and you are in Big Nature – Foret Montmorency is a good destination, especially with a wildlife guide.
