About This Trip

Saddle up for a one-of-a-kind voyage of discovery in the least-travelled part of America, the beautiful Heartlands. Travel down the spine of the US, from Chicago to Dallas exploring the rich history and the incredible music expressed through the vibrant culture that sprang up away from the famous US coasts. 

 

This trip combines the overpoweringly beautiful scenery of America’s Heartlands, with stops in some of the most incredible, and often overlooked, cities in the whole country. Immerse yourself in the blues and jazz of St. Louis, before heading south into country music territory, with visits to the multitude of music theatres in Branson Missouri, the cowboy culture of Oklahoma City and its famous Rodeo Opry. Follow iconic locations associated with the legendary Route 66 as you travel south.

 

This tour is not just another luxury coach tour. Specifically designed to maximise the big-ticket highlights and those tiny, off the beaten track wonders, we will even tailor the trip around you if we possibly can. If you have a burning passion, a must-see location on the trip, we will do our best to incorporate it into the tours. There is a real family feel about the way the trip is run and the groups who take them, and it’s not difficult to imagine booking future trips with some of the delightful people you will meet on the trip. Every day is a joy, your local team ensuring that every second on the coach, and off exploring, is one that will be seared into your memory for all time. 

 

So, jump on board this musical express through the wonders of America’s Heartlands and get ready to become one of the family.

highlights

New York and California are outstanding. There is no way around it, but the true beauty of America lies in its diversity in both scenery and culture and we wanted to create a tour to celebrate this and expose part of the country that travellers rarely see. America’s Heartlands are a showcase of this diversity and how it has come together through great spirit and outstanding music to create one of the most intriguing parts of the great states of America. 

 

Performance has always been key in these states. With no beaches to distract, no ‘high society’, going to a performance has long been the heart and soul of this part of America and on this tour, you are going to head to some of the most famous show spots in the country. The Rodeo Opry in OKC and the outstandingly named Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Branson, Missouri. This trip is filled with incredible nights out with a group of people who will soon become firm friends.
