Globus and Cosmos Prove That There’s No Place Like Home On NEW “Undiscovered North America” Vacations for 2021

LITTLETON, Colorado – June 9, 2020 – It isn’t necessary to cross oceans for adventure when there’s so much to discover from sea to shining sea. Between North America’s breathtaking national parks, cool emerging cities and tiny, historic towns, there’s a surplus of sights travelers haven’t seen – or truly experienced – in their own backyard. In 2021, Globus and Cosmos are unveiling a NEW series of nine (9) “Undiscovered North America” tours, ranging from 8 to 14 days.

“On our ‘Undiscovered North America’ vacations, we will take globetrotters down the less-traveled highways, legendary lanes and scenic country roads to the special places and parks other tour companies don’t visit,” said Steve Born, chief marketing officer for the Globus family of brands. “These itineraries  help travelers discover the world’s tucked-away towns, lesser-known nooks and secluded seafronts for an unforgettable – and unique – vacation.”

NEW itineraries created for this “Undiscovered North America” series include five (5) NEW tours from both Globus and Cosmos.

NEW! Globus Bourbon, Bridles & Bluegrass (8 days, priced from $2,549) – On this NEW undiscovered vacation, travelers will enjoy intoxicating views, music, customs and cuisine.

They will take the reins of this new journey in Kentucky – the land of mares, mint juleps and mandolins – with a special evening of bluegrass entertainment and visits to a centuries-old bourbon distillery, a thoroughbred horse farm and the legendary Brown Hotel to taste its famous Hot Brown open-faced sandwich. Other drool-worthy experiences include George Vanderbilt’s grand Biltmore Estate guided tour and farm-to-table lunch; time spent in the waterfront city of Chattanooga, including a tour of its Songbird Guitar Museum and guided sightseeing in “Music City,” Tennessee with accommodations near the melodious sounds of Honky Tonk Row.

NEW! Globus Southern California Charms (10 days, priced from $3,699) – This NEW undiscovered tour of Southern California explores Golden State getaways and sunny stretches of coastline; the golden age of Hollywood and smaller towns that truly shine.

Travelers will enjoy touring some historic and swoon-worthy sites of the City of Angels before checking into the beautiful, beachfront Hotel del Coronado where Marilyn Monroe filmed, “Some Like it Hot.” Other opportunities to cool off include a margarita tasting in Old Town San Diego and wine tasting in the vineyard-rich region of Temecula before things heat up with an architectural tour of Palm Springs. Of course, the trip to California won’t be complete without some sand between toes – something travelers will get on a Jeep tour through Joshua Tree National Park and time in Pismo Beach and Santa Barbara.

NEW! Globus New England & The Hudson Valley (10 days, priced from $3,299) – From the Salem Witch Trials to the Headless Horseman, New England is home to some of the nation’s oldest settings, stories and sagas. Fact, fiction and fantastic scenery abound for travelers on this NEW, vibrant vacation and historical journey through New England and the Hudson Valley.

This undiscovered tour kicks off in the “Birthplace of American Liberty.” After digesting fascinating American Revolution-focused history, travelers will venture to Salem and head toward the peaceful vistas of coastal Maine, rural New Hampshire and mountainous Vermont. Charming seaport villages, bucolic covered bridges and rolling maple syrup farms sweeten the storyline’s of America’s historic East Coast.

Before ending this journey, travelers will head to scene-stealing New York and Massachusetts, including the resort village and Olympic Games site in Lake Placid, the picturesque Berkshire Mountains and the orchard- and vineyard-dotted riverbanks of the Hudson Valley. They will even have time to explore Tarrytown, the setting for Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and tour the waterfront U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

NEW! Cosmos Exploring the Pacific Northwest (9 days, priced from $1,929) – Travelers are invited to clear their schedule and palates for this tasty, NEW undiscovered tour through the natural wonders, lush wilderness and picturesque wineries of scenic Washington and Oregon.

In addition to the sights of “Emerald City” and “City of Roses,” colorful experiences include drinking in the alpine architecture and German beer in the Bavarian village of Leavenworth; waking-up to the coastal city of Astoria and its Victorian-era hillside homes and  savoring malt and hops at any number of Bend’s two dozen breweries. Other experiences include a dune buggy ride along the Oregon Coast; Mt. Hood’s 611-foot-tall Multnomah Falls and Crater Lake National Park.

Additional tours included in the Globus family’s “Undiscovered North America” portfolio – and available for 2020 bookings – include:

“On one of our undiscovered tours – now available in Italy, Great Britain, the Mediterranean and North America – we trade the lines of the Colosseum for the narrow lanes of Tuscan towns; the hustle and bustle of London for the quiet landscapes of the English countryside; Europe’s sea of tourists for the coastal villages of the Mediterranean and the crowded cities of North America with smaller, crowd-pleasing gems” said Born.
