From the glitz of Las Vegas to the volcanic landscapes of Yellowstone National Park, the USA is a land of exciting contrasts. Whether you’re visiting museums in New York, soaking up the atmosphere on Miami Beach or hiking through the sparse Mojave Desert, holidays to the USA really do have it all.
If you’re going away with the family, there’s everything from magical theme parks to golden beaches, water parks and incredible natural attractions. From manatee-spotting in the Florida Everglades to the vast Balboa Park in California, the USA is a treasure-trove of family-friendly activities just waiting to be explored.
If you’re looking for cosmopolitan charm, New York has it in bucketloads. Among the soaring skyscrapers you’ll discover family-run eateries, designer shops and thriving theatres, all within easy reach on the Subway. From the hip Greenwich Village to the beautiful Central Park, New York is a vibrant cultural city that never sleeps.
There’s endless fun to be had in the USA if you love adventure. Hire a classic car and take on Route 66, explore the Grand Canyon by helicopter, or take a sunset hike through the dry landscapes of Death Valley. No matter what time of year you’re visiting the States, you won’t be far from a festival, like Austin’s South by Southwest, California’s Coachella and the statewide Independence Day celebrations on the 4th of July.
If you like to party, you’ll be spoiled for choice on your holiday to the USA. Miami has glamorous nightclubs, while the bright lights of Las Vegas keep the city partying until sunrise. If you prefer a more laid back evening, head to San Francisco to sample freshly-caught seafood in Fisherman’s Wharf, or watch live jazz music in Union Square.
