Boasting a choice of global cities, over 55 National Parks, mile upon mile of coastline, a landscape that’s as varied as it is beautiful and a ton of top hotels, motels and resorts, the United States really does have something for everyone. Whether you’re planning to shop till you drop in New York, star spot in LA, soak up the sun on Hawaii’s stunning beaches or whizz down a mountain in one of Hawaii’s world-class ski resorts, the world is your oyster (or conch chowder as they say in Florida).
Each of the USA’s 50 states has its own distinctive character and its own fantastic selection of things to do. Head to the coasts for cosmopolitan cities, theme parks and beaches, book a break in the north for mountains and lakes or head to the south for old fashioned charm, great food and breathtaking desert views.
New York – It’s almost impossible to beat the Big Apple when it comes to things to do and places to stay. Head to the top of the Rockefeller Centre or Empire State Building for great views, shop till you drop on 5th Avenue or hop over the East River and explore the shops and bars of trendy Brooklyn.
California – Home to LA and San Francisco, two of America’s most iconic cities, California also boasts around 840 miles of coast and some of the country’s best National Parks.
Las Vegas – Find out if Lady Luck is on your side in one of Las Vegas’ colossal casino hotels; take in a show or simply spend your days exploring the shopping malls, swimming pools, funfair rides and futuristic buildings of the Strip.
Florida – Perfect for action packed family holidays, Florida boasts some of the best theme parks in the world as well as a choice of beaches, islands and cosmopolitan cities with top hotels.
From the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline in the east to the Golden Gate Bridge, the Hollywood Sign and Yosemite National Park in the west, America has plenty of iconic sights to see. If you’re in the south of the country, a trip to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon in Arizona is a must. Alternatively, if you’re in New York or the north east, head up to Niagara Falls and witness Mother Nature at her most ferocious.
If you’re looking for an action packed getaway, America offers the perfect destination. Its National Parks are perfect for hiking, biking and camping, while its beaches offer a huge variety of water sports including surfing, water skiing, kayaking and sailing. If you’re travelling with children, there’s plenty to keep you entertained in Florida where you’ll find Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Legoland as well as a fantastic choice of beaches. For city breaks and sightseeing, head to New York, LA or San Francisco, or opt for the more alternative destinations of Portland, New Orleans and Austin to see a different side of the American dream.
