With a fleet of futuristic segways and classic beach-cruiser bicycles, Bike and Roll Chicago outfits travelers with wheeled transportation to explore the city's paved surfaces. Tour guides lead groups through Millennium Park and along the lakefront to catch the skyline when illuminated by sunrises or backlit by one of Chicago's many moons. Misty Lake Michigan breezes ruffle riders' hair peeking through helmets as they pass by sailboats swaying lazily in the harbors and fishermen casting lines for trout and perch. Bike and Roll Chicago designs routes around classic architectural landmarks such as the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum as well as popular neighborhoods home to a number of restaurants and art festivals.

Offering one of the most convenient ways to get to the Manhattan island, NY Waterway lets visitors forego paying bridge tolls, suffering traffic delays, and carrying their cars around with them once in the city. The company's ferries jump across the Hudson River, East River, and Lower Bay, dropping passengers at terminals throughout the city. NY Waterway buslines, meanwhile, crisscross Manhattan, taking patrons down busy thoroughfares to their waiting boats free of charge. The company has been moving precious cargo—people—to and from in New York City since 1986, when the Mets won the World Series largely due to their ability to get to the games on a ferry.

The advocates of ocean-based travel at Above All Cruises unveil awe-inspiring views of New York City's sprawling skyline during weekly and holiday cruises that set sail out of Skyport Marina or World's Fair Marina. Rather than engaging in terra firma's exhausting recreational activities, such as hiking or the Running of the Taxis, visitors can while away the evening on a luxury ship. Although each vessel flaunts its own personality and design, all sport dance floors, flat-screen TVs, and hunger-quelling dinner options. Experienced captains ensure that cruises always stay on course, and equally experienced DJs keep dance floors afloat with energetic songs.

Valuable vacation time should not be wasted traveling, which is why Mauiva AirCruise’s guided group tours use private planes to whisk travelers between destinations. With this deal, multicity vacations begin with a flight from either New York City (for the All-American East Experience package) or Los Angeles (for the Western Wonder Experience package). Upon landing, a motorcoach escorts passengers to a Hilton, a Hyatt, or another four-star hotel, where guests’ bags await in the room. The next day, a certified travel host leads sightseeing tours and other activities, such as wine tastings and scenic drives, before the group heads to the next city. Along with 11 meals, the six-day All-American East Experience package visits 20 eastern attractions, including Niagara Falls, Toronto, Lancaster, Harrisburg, Washington, DC, Mount Vernon, Arlington, and more. Beginning at Niagara Falls, the travel host arranges rides on the iconic Maid of the Mist boat tour, which drifts right into the basin of the 2,600-foot tall Canadian Horseshoe Falls. A short bus ride takes the group to Toronto for a view of the city’s skyline from the CN Tower, followed by a wine tasting at Caroline Cellars Winery in nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake. Back in America, the tours stops by Hershey, home to Hershey's Chocolate World, where visitors make custom candy bars and learn the history of the chocolatiers before heading to the nation's capitol to see its numerous historical sites and Jimmy Carter­–brand sausage emporiums.
