From the Arctic Circle to the Pacific Ocean, America's 50 states hold every landscape you can possibly think of. Shimmering skyscrapers rise in the exciting cities of New York , Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta; white spires and timber-clad houses prevail in New England; Great Lakes and grasslands sprawl in the east; purple mountains and coniferous forests cloak the west; scorched deserts and spiky cacti lie in the south, and in the central belt, endless highways and golden fields roll towards the horizon.
From its immigrant origins, the land of opportunity is rich in adventure. Walk the Freedom Trail in Boston and see the oldest warship in the world, crane your neck at the Empire State Building or kick back in Central Park, shop 'til you drop in Chicago's streets and New York's malls, hike the highlands in Vermont, sail the waters of Cape Cod, surf the breaks at LA and San Francisco, or ride like a cowboy in Texas. But if fun in Florida is more your thing, pick up our dedicated Florida brochure.
An entire world of flavours, and regional delights await. Try Boston baked beans, New York bagels, California rolls and Texan barbeques, slurp oysters in Chicago, clam chowder in New England, and milk punch in New Orleans. For musical accompaniment with your meal, head to the Deep South for blues, the Mid West for Motown or New York for hip hop, salsa and Latino beats.
Teeming cities or quaint villages, century-old houses or ultra-modern hotels, trendy beaches or windblown prairies - a holiday in the USA can be whatever you want it to be.
Downtown Lower Manhattan - Downtown - is known as the most historic neighborhood in New York offering a multitude of places to stay, eat, shop and see. Old mixes with new as colonial churches sit alongside gleaming skyscrapers. The former site of the World Trade Center is located in Downtown Manhattan - witnessing the enormity of Ground Zero is a humbling experience for many visitors and one which has become an integral part of New York over the past decade.
