Popular Cities & Places to Visit in United States
In the icy north you’ll need to rug up to spot bears and moose in astonishing glacial Alaska. Seeking a little summer sun? Get yourself down to Florida and ogle at the mansions of the rich and fabulous. Climb the Empire State Building for a bird’s eye view of dazzling Manhattan or unleash your inner child at the happiest place on earth, Disneyland. Americans are a welcoming bunch and they are always happy to serve you up some enormous (and delicious) concoctions. Try philly cheese steak in Philadelphia, cheese curds in the MidWest, a juicy corndog at the baseball in Baltimore or an apple pie milkshake in California. From sea to shining sea, there’s so much to see in the good ol’ US of A.

Experiences in USA
Is there anything more American than road-tripping on Route 66 with the windows down and the tunes pumped up? Break your journey with a plate of grits and a cuppa joe in one of the nation’s thousands of roadside diners. Ah, classic times.
A helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon followed by white-water rafting down the Colorado River is not for the faint-hearted but it’s the most incredible way to experience this massive natural wonder. For hikers, the US is paradise – don’t miss the geysers of Yellowstone, the Giant Forest of Sequoia and the thrill-seeker’s playground of Yosemite.
Road trip the music cities of the south, singing through New Orleans, Memphis and Nashville, or journey through Monument Valley's spectacular desert pinnacles.
Get into the kids’ good books with a trip hiking into the Grand Canyon, watching the Bellagio fountain in Vegas or exploring the wild west.
Aspen, Lake Tahoe or Vail, Colorado – pull on your beanie, strap on your snowboard and take to the powdery slopes.
Festivals and events
New Orleans is a party town and Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday) is when the city really goes nuts. Head down to Bourbon Street to get amongst the merrymaking.
Food and wine
A landscape dotted with picture-postcard vineyards is the perfect backdrop for a glass of vino. Welcome to the wine-lover’s heaven of the Napa Valley – cheers!
Bear, bison, eagle – the icons of USA wildlife. But did you know there’s over a million alligators in Florida, and plenty are lurking in the Everglades.
A day tour can up-size your America experience – explore San Francisco on foot, visit the stars in LA or drink craft beer in New York.
