Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

This week, I'd like to wish my readers in the U.S. a happy and safe Fourth of July. In the spirit of the holiday, I'll tell you about some of our best-selling tours and river cruises in the U.S. To see departure dates, rates and any accompanying promotions for these popular itineraries, please click the links below.

Classic Fall Foliage, Globus -- Take in the prime leaf-peeping locales of New England on this nine-day loop from Boston. Travelers spend time at Maine's Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, the Massachusetts studio of Norman Rockwell and the Billings Farm & Museum, which preserves Vermont's rural heritage. Also on the agenda are a lobster bake and a visit to The Breakers, Cornelius Vanderbilt's opulent mansion in Newport, Rhode Island.

National Parks & Canyon Country, Cosmos -- On a two-week tour from Denver to Las Vegas, Cosmos shows its travelers the four famous presidential faces of Mount Rushmore, the brilliantly colored "hoodoos" (pillars) of Bryce Canyon and the mile-deep chasm of the Grand Canyon. Spend two nights at Yellowstone, walk along the shores of Grand Teton's glacier-fed Jenny Lake and see the Wyoming frontier town of Cody.

8 Day Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon & Zion National Parks, Gate 1 Travel -- Three of the Southwest's most popular national parks -- Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion -- are highlighted on this escorted itinerary. Guests also spend time amid the red rocks of Sedona, the old cliff dwellings of Montezuma Castle National Monument and the bright lights of Las Vegas.

Southern Culture, American Queen Steamboat Company -- Delve into the music, cuisine and traditions of the South on this Lower Mississippi River sailing between New Orleans and Memphis. The eight-day trip takes place aboard the American Queen paddle wheeler, the largest ship to cruise the famed waterway. (In 2016, the American Queen will sail a similar itinerary called Antebellum South)

South Dakota: The Black Hills & Badlands, Collette -- Rapid City is your base while you spend seven days exploring South Dakota's top attractions, such as the Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse memorials and the rugged landscape of Badlands National Park. Scout elk and bighorn sheep in Custer State Park, visit the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, attend a chuckwagon supper on the former set of "Dances With Wolves" and hear tales of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane in Deadwood.

10 Day Three Islander, Perillo Tours -- Escape to the palm-fringed beaches and lush interiors of the Hawaiian islands. Spending time in Oahu, Maui and Kauai, this itinerary includes visits to top sights such as Pearl Harbor, Mount Haleakala and Waimea Canyon. Built-in leisure time affords plenty of opportunities for relaxing on pristine beaches or snorkeling in colorful underwater worlds.

Columbia & Snake Rivers, American Queen Steamboat Company -- The American Empress paddle wheeler navigates these Pacific Northwest waterways, sailing through a stunning landscape of deep canyons, waterfalls and mountains. During the eight-day cruise, guests can explore destinations via included "hop-on, hop-off" tours. Stop at the Sunshine Mills Winery in The Dalles or the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center near Stevenson.

Islands of New England, Collette -- This eight-day tour mixes historic sights and sandy beaches. See the Gilded Age mansions of Newport's Bellevue Avenue (where you'll tour another Vanderbilt family home, Marble House), visit Boston's Old North Church and Faneuil Hall Marketplace and ride ferries to the summer retreats of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. There's also an opportunity to join a whale-watching cruise on Cape Cod.

National Parks Wonders, Trafalgar -- National parks tours are among our most popular U.S. itineraries, and here's another great trip that showcases some of the most scenic landscapes of the West, on a nine-day route. In Wyoming, for example, you'll ride an aerial tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain for panoramic views of the Teton Range, tour the mud pots and hot springs of Yellowstone and watch Old Faithful shoot its waters nearly 100 feet up, and photograph Devils Tower, America's first national monument.

California Classics, Globus -- Travel from San Francisco to Los Angeles on this nine-day Golden State itinerary. Stroll the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco (created in 1894, it's the oldest public Japanese garden in the U.S.), explore Yosemite National Park in an open-air tram and tour the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium, Hearst Castle and Getty Museum.
