USA Travel Highlights
Sensational New York is the most famous city in the world and whether you want to shop ‘til you drop, enjoy the renowned galleries and museums or experience the famous nightlife, there is lots to pack into your visit!
Shop at the world famous Bloomingdales or Macy’s department stores. Take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and enjoy spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.
Enjoy a traditional New York hot dog or join the New Yorkers as they tuck into brunch in Greenwich Village. Try rollerblading in Central Park or treat yourself to a Broadway show. Wander through the boutiques of SoHo or just relax in Chelsea’s laid back cafés.

California holidays promise spectacular national parks, some of the most famous cities on the planet and some incredible scenic journeys between them all to boot!
California’s stunning Sierra Nevada mountain range boasts three national parks and 20 wilderness areas of its own.
The coastline between San Francisco and Los Angeles is also astonishingly with dramatic cliff top views, winding scenic highways and unspoilt wilderness areas.
The cities are more than a match for the natural beauty too. Glamorous Los Angeles boasts theme parks, beautiful beaches, a buzzing nightlife and a real sprinkling of stardust, whilst San Francisco stuns with its scenic bay setting, colourful neighbourhoods and fascinating history including infamous Alcatraz. To round it off sun-kissed San Diego and Palm Springs are the perfect spots for a bit of RnR.

All the way from the majestic mountains of Washington State in the north to the stark beauty of Arizona in the south, the scenery will stop you in your tracks. World famous national parks include Yosemite, Yellowstone, Zion, Arches and the Grand Canyon to name just a few.
The cities are just as astounding; San Francisco, LA and Las Vegas might be the iconic names but don’t forget the lesser charms of Seattle, Phoenix, Denver and Salt Lake City.
The USA’s Midwest often gets overlooked in favour of its more famous east and west coast rivals which is a real shame as this is an area of incredible scenic beauty, vibrant cities and some unique slices of American history.
Chicago is the original home of the skyscraper and boasts some fine modern architecture and wonderful museums and shopping.
The Great Lakes, right on Chicago’s doorstep, are a wonderland of quiet beaches, unspoilt parks and tranquil islands, whilst further west you’ll find ethereal deserts and the iconic Mount Rushmore.
Chicago is also the jumping off point for some of America’s greatest journeys, including Route 66 and the famous transcontinental rail journeys to Seattle and San Francisco.
