USA Holidays


A true year-round destination, offering an incredible variety of climates and cultures, USA holidays boast awe-inspiring scenery, thrilling cities and a spellbinding history. Wander through vibrant cities, drive through cinematic landscapes or visit miles of sun-kissed beaches and thrilling theme parks.

America’s natural beauty is almost without parallel. The scale of the scenery of the USA’s iconic national parks are nothing short of astounding from the soaring rock faces of Yosemite, Zion and the Grand Canyon to the waterfalls, canyons and geysers of Yellowstone. You may be just as enchanted by the lesser known stars though like Glaciers, Grand Teton or Mount Rainier in the north, Shenandoah in the east and Great Smoky Mountains and Big Bend in the South.

The cities are no less thrilling. You’ll find stupendous skylines pricked by lofty skyscrapers, world class museums, 24 hour night life and fabulous food wherever you go yet each city can lay claim to its own unique history and culture from Boston’s Independence links to New Orleans’s musical heritage.

Trailfinders helps ten of thousands of people a year plan their holidays to the USA and most of our travel consultants have travelled extensively here. Our speciality is tailormade holidays in the USA and with us you can pick and choose how you’d like to get around, where you’d like to stay and how you’d like to experience the attractions

HOW TO GET AROUND THE USA

With its excellent network of wide, easy to drive byways, the USA is a perfect destination to be explored by car or motorhome. Follow one of our classic car or motorhome holidays or ask our fly drive experts to put something tailormade together for you.

If you’d rather not drive how about joining a sociable escorted coach tour travelling up California’s glorious coast or an incredible fun small group tour all the way from LA to New York? Our multi centre holidays are also a great alternative – hopping by air between the major cities and taking advantage of our comprehensive local tours to experience the attractions.

Some iconic rail journeys also criss-cross the country. What could be more romantic than crossing the breadth of the country on famous trains like the California Zephyr, the Empire Builder or the Southwest Chief? On the east coast Amtrak’s train are often a great alternative to driving or flying.

  • USA HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

    There’s 50 states to discover and it’s not too unreasonable to say most would merit a holiday in their own right. It would be just as easy to spend all your time exploring the cities, national parks and vineyards of California as it would to use it discovering the beaches, canyons, ranches and Spanish history of Texas.

    USA holiday highlights map
    California
    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 beautiful 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.
    West Coast USA
    The Western USA is home to some of the most astounding natural beauty on the planet.

    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.
    East Coast USA
    Whether you are looking for a weekend break, a spectacular fly drive, city sights, mountains or beaches, the East really does fit the bill. 

    Discover incredible cities replete with world famous nightlife, museums and shopping like New York, Boston, Washington DC and Philadelphia.  There's also some stunning natural beauty on show from the Acadia National Park all the way down to Shenandoah.

    New England boasts dramatic coastlines and lush forest landscapes dotted with tranquil lakes, woodland and mountain trails. 

    This is also the most historic part of the states from the Freedom Trail in Boston to the moving Civil War battlefield sites of the south.
    Florida
    If you are looking for fun in the sun then Florida is most definitely the place for you. 

    Wonderful beaches run for miles and miles along both Atlantic and Gulf Coasts and almost year round blue skies make this an enticing spot for a beach holiday. 

    Fancy a city break? Miami boasts a sophisticated nightlife, superb beaches and a Latin energy unlike anywhere else in the USA.

    This is also wonderful fly drive country - head out on the Overseas Highway to the beautiful Florida Keys.

    For many, though, Orlando is all about the world famous theme parks. Walt Disney World and the Universal Orlando Resort are justly renowned but with Sea World, Busch Gardens, Aquatica, Legoland and Discovery Cove also right on your doorstep, one visit may not be enough!
    The South
    America’s South is a vast and varied region that is home to southern belles, cowboys and music legends, mighty rivers, canyons, bayous and glorious beaches. If you are looking for an American holiday with real soul then this is the place for you. 

    New Orleans is a captivating city, unique in the whole USA, with historic buildings, a fascinating history and famous nightlife. Close by, Louisiana’s Plantation Country boasts grand mansions and a window into the turbulent recent history, whilst Natchez is full of charm and historic interest.  Nashville and Memphis are the beating heart of America’s music history, the birthplace of Jazz, Country and Rock & Roll! 

    Georgia and South Carolina offer a slower pace of life and a charming mix of gleaming cities, stunning natural beauty and Southern hospitality. 

    And finally, Texas, will fulfil your dreams of living like a cowboy but may surprise you with its cosmopolitan cities and glorious beaches.
    Hawaii
    Holidays to Hawaii promise year round tropical sunshine, spectacular landscapes and palm fringed beaches all wrapped up in the famous ‘aloha’ spirit. 

    Oahu is the most developed of the islands, and home to the capital Honolulu and some of the globe’s best surfing. 

    Combining miles of sandy beaches and rolling hills with pretty fishing villages and colourful mango groves, Maui offers a more relaxed pace.  Kauai is the smallest and quietest of the Islands with dramatic mountains, an abundance of stunning fauna and some of the most dramatic waterfalls in the world. 

    Known as the Big Island, Hawaii is the most diverse of the islands, the scenery changes every few miles from lush rain forests, to barren black lava fields and snow-capped peaks.
