While NYC is a once in a lifetime destination, there is also much more to see on the Eastern Seaboard.Picturesque towns, idyllic parks and an impressive coastline await
Want to sample high-end shopping, iconic buildings, fine art and some of the world’s best restaurants? Keen to step back in time, go nature watching or get stuck into your favourite watersports? Whatever you’re looking for from your holiday, the east coast of the USA will have something for you. We offer luxury breaks to destinations including New York and Boston and are standing by to help you choose the perfect package.
From the Met, Guggenheim and Museum of Modern Art, to the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty, New York is brimming with attractions. Make your way to the Broadway theatres to see A-listers tread the boards. Enjoy performances of ballet, opera, rock or jazz. If you fancy a spot of retail therapy, step into iconic stores such as Tiffany or Macy’s, check out the designer clothes on offer on Madison Avenue, or visit the Strand to stock up on books. To see more of what this fascinating city has to offer, take a guided sightseeing tour by bus or boat, or simply stroll through Central Park.
Home to some 200 nationalities, the Big Apple has a truly international feel and this is reflected in its food. Visit the Upper West Side to sample the delights of the Jewish delis or wander through Chinatown to tuck into flavour-packed noodle dishes. From trendy gastropubs to Michelin-starred restaurants, New York caters to all tastes.
Boston is another top holiday destination on the Eastern Seaboard. Despite its size, the Massachusetts capital retains a small town charm and it’s the ideal place to immerse yourself in US history. Follow the Freedom Trail to see 16 sites relating to the American Revolution. You’ll wind your way past the likes of Boston Common, the Old State House and the Bunker Hill Monument, where the details of the Battle of Bunker Hill are retold. The Museum of Fine Art and Boston Public Library are also must-sees. For music enthusiasts, no trip to this city is complete without listening to a performance by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, while sports fans can cheer on the Red Sox at Fenway Park. For some fresh air and open space, head to Jamaica Pond and the Arnold Arboretum.
Nature lovers can venture to the zoo at Franklin Park, or enjoy a whale watching cruise to Stellwagen Bank, where you might see minke, humpback and fin whales. If you’re feeling energetic, you can test your skills at watersports including sailing, kayaking and canoeing. Meanwhile, if you want to see more of what New England has to offer, you have the option of booking an Escape to New England tour.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
