Itinerary

01

Day 1: Atlanta - Asheville

Start your tour in Atlanta, Georgia’s electric state capital, and a place of significant civil rights movement history. You’ll head north into Appalachia, sandwiched between the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge, the self-proclaimed ‘Land of the Sky. Here, the effortless bohemian vibe and panoramic mountain views of Asheville awaits. If that’s not exciting enough this mountain city is within the top three U.S. cities for breweries per capita, and good ones too! You’ll have time this evening to suss out the scene.

Meals Included: Meals paid locally

Day 2-3: Washington, DC

Next up is the nation’s capital. From the impressive Smithsonian Museums and the White House to trendy neighborhoods such as Georgetown, Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle, the capital has something for everyone. We recommend you try out a locally guided bike tour of Washington DC's monuments as a fun way to see the city and the famous sights like the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. For a taste of history, a pilgrimage to Capital City Brewing Company is a must, for a Prohibition Porter among other fine tasting options. Food on your mind? There’s only one thing for it – Ben’s Chilli Bowl for awesome grub.

For the serious beer lovers, then joining your tour guide for a visit to Hill Farmstead brewery is a must. You won’t thank us for the early start but it’s worth the effort - these are probably the most in-demand beers in the USA, and if you’re not there before it opens you ain’t getting in.
