It’s the land of big cities, historical icons, gorgeous mountain ranges and of course, all-American diners. holidays to Hawaii, the USA and Canada can be as fun and bustling or as relaxing and casual as you want them to be, particularly since there’s no struggling with the language barrier.
On the east coast of America visit New York, Miami, Washington D.C and Philadelphia then head to the west coast to see Los Angeles, San Francisco and of course Las Vegas! If you are embarking on a holiday to North America for the first time, here are some of the best places and attractions of North America to visit and a list of things you should do that will truly have you behaving like an American!
New York holidays are often the pinnacle of travel to USA. With the Statue of Liberty, Time Square, the Empire State Building and the site of the Twin Towers, New York is the place to be. Visitors can also explore the boutique shopping and bars of Manhattan, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, catch a Broadway show or take a casual stroll down Wall Street.
A beautiful capital city, Washington is a wonderful introduction to the culture and history of Americans. Tour the White House, visit the Smithsonian, explore the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials or witness the changing of the guard at the Arlington Memorial.
Feel like living it up a little? Las Vegas is the city that never sleeps and the dazzling strip of restaurants, casinos, hotels and theatres will swallow you up – but in a great way. Try your hand at blackjack or poker, indulge in a $100 cocktail or catch a Cirque de Soleil or musical show. Those seeking adventure can take a ride on the New York Rollercoaster and those who want to relax can do so with a spa treatment at the Venetian. For a charming experience, make sure you visit the Bellagio Fountain at night, perhaps after a dinner at the Wynn, the MGM or Caesar’s Palace. Of course, if the bright lights start to wane a little for you, don’t forget to visit the Grand Canyon which lies just next door, too.
San Francisco is probably on your “must see” list when planning a trip to America, but if you need a break from the chaos of the big cities, the seaport hub of Seattle is a beautiful and serene place where you can explore things at your own pace. Visit the Space Needle (especially at night, for some amazing views), the grave of Jimi Hendrix or treat yourself to a spot of shopping at Pioneer Square or the Pike Place Markets. Enjoy magnificent scenery on one of the many Seattle ferries or take a tour to see the now underground streets and shops of the old city, which was destroyed in a fire in 1889.
How could we not mention La La land? Of course, some of the best sights here all revolve around Hollywood and its associated stars, from the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the movie studios, to Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and Madam Tussauds, L.A. lets you get up close and personal with all your favourite celebrities. More unique activities to try while on your American holiday include, attending a TV show taping, relaxing on Catalina Island or the Malibu Coast, checking out the views from Griffith Observatory and visiting the stainless steel Walt Disney Concert Hall.
