Iconic landmarks, scintillating music and breathtaking scenery

There is nowhere on the planet with the endless possibilities for a truly memorable holiday than the States.  Even the cities have the best nick-names, synonymous with adventure and excitement – The Big Easy, The Big Apple, the Windy City, Motor City, the City of Angels and Sin City!

Exhilarating white-knuckle adventures can be enjoyed in Florida, the theme park capital of the world.  Must-dos include Sea World, Busch Gardens and, of course, Walt Disney World.  Florida also has mile after glorious mile of amazing golden beaches and scintillating nightlife, as well as being the gateway for cruises to the Bahamas and Caribbean.

San Francisco, symbolised by the majestic Golden Gate Bridge, is home to Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown and Haight-Ashbury, the birthplace of the hippie counterculture.  Washington DC is best visited in the spring for the awesome cherry blossom, and is where to head for stunning architecture and an introduction to America’s lively and fascinating history.  If you’re looking for the ultimate ski trip, then the Rockies boasts some of the best ski resorts in the world, such as Vail, Jackson Hole and Breckenridge.

The States is also the birthplace of some of the most timeless music ever created, whether that’s soul in Detroit, the blues in New Orleans, rock ‘n’ roll in Memphis or hip-hop in New York.  And talking of New York, the city so good that they had to name it twice, this is one of the most popular city break destinations on the planet.  With its iconic skyline, dozens of world-famous visitor attractions, fantastic shopping, don’t be surprised if this is a city that you have to visit twice (or more!).

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.  There’s also New England in the fall with its mesmerising colours, a road trip along the winding Pacific Coastal Highway, the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, the opportunity to become a high roller in Las Vegas, and so much more.  The States has it all – apart from icebergs!
