American city living

Think of holidays in the USA and chances are New York City will spring to mind. For a first-time travellers it’s a sure bet, with sky-touching towers, world-beating museums and an contagious, fast pace that doesn’t disappoint.

Cities on the West Coast of the United States come in the form of sprawling Los Angeles, home of Hollywood, and San Francisco, where old California comes to life in historic Chinatown and the infamous Alcatraz.

Take a trip down to the Deep South and New Orleans serves up a steaming shrimp gumbo of Creole culture and dizzying good times, while bikini-clad Miami offers the sizzling pleasures of South Beach with a side of Art Deco – the perfect backdrop for luxury USA holidays.

Wander where the wifi is weak…

Holidays in the USA are not just made up of big city adventures. Set out to discover epic landscapes of monumental scale and staggering beauty.

Be amazed at the sight of the world’s tallest tree in California, watch for any gators in the primeval swamps of Florida’s Everglades or go bear spotting in the Rocky Mountains.

Visit The Grand Canyon in Arizona or the unmistakable red rocks of Monument Valley fulfil Western fantasies with their surreal beauty and astounding size.

Have you considered simply hitting the road and heading off the highway to discover forgotten ghost towns, roadside motels and picket-fenced villages?

Holidays in the USA are a many-flavoured dish that would take lifetimes to truly finish.

Making holidays in the USA affordable again.

If you’re after some great-value family holidays in the USA, you can keep to a budget quite easily with some forward planning.

Rent a motorhome and cruise from Los Angeles to San Francisco along Route 1 where you can camp under the stars in Big Sur. There is also the option of booking an all-inclusive USA trip to Disneyland in California, or look for a great package holiday deal in Florida, home to theme parks such as the Magic Kingdom, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios Orlando and many more.

Obviously these holidays aren’t as cheap as a week by a beach in Spain, but by booking well in advance and looking for all-inclusive USA package deals (which help to keep control of costs while away), you can create magical memories for the whole family.

When is the best time to travel to America?

You will find different weather conditions in America at different times of the year. The sheer size of the country means the climate varies widely depending on where you are.

For example, the wilds of Alaska are subarctic, while Hawaii is tropical. Coastal Oregon and Washington have climates that are more familiar to Brits.

New York roasts in summer highs and freezes in winter, so spring and autumn often make for the most comfortable visits. Hotel prices can drop in NYC during late summer months in July and August – it’s just so hot in the city that people flee to the coast – but this means that late summer is a good bet for relatively cheap USA holidays in Manhattan.

Holidays in the USA can take you to some of the finest ski resorts in the world, so whether you’re looking for deep powder in Colorado’s word-class ski areas or wild heli-skiing adventures in Alaska, winter is the obvious time to book your ski holiday to America. You’re most likely to find some fantastic package deals on skiing holidays in the USA at either end of the season.
