Tours in the Mid-Atlantic

Often called the Heartland of the East Coast, the mid-Atlantic region offers the best of the eastern U.S. This area is home to the iconic Adirondack Park, the Appalachian Mountains, and Niagara Falls, as well as great cycling on rail trails, winding roads covered in hardwood forest canopy, and historic covered bridges. The culture and commerce here might be dominated by New York and Washington, DC, but the expansive and sometimes unexpected rural areas offer a one-of-a-kind charm and beauty.
