When you book flights to America you could find yourself skiing in the Rocky Mountains, partying in Las Vegas, enjoying a family holiday in the theme parks of Florida, or living the life of a socialite in the Big Apple.
The question is, when you fly to the US, where’s should you go?
New York & the Mid Atlantic States
Shopaholics will love a trip to New York City. Famous for stores like Bloomingdales and Macy’s, you could easily spend a fortune before spending the afternoon exploring Central Park. New York has something for everyone, so be sure to bring your guidebook.
The rest of the Mid Atlantic states are worth flights to America, too: from the Garden State of New Jersey with its famous beaches and pine forests, to Pennsylvania, home of the famous liberty bell.
Sunny in the summer and snowy in the winter, New England is an American holiday favourite. Head to Cape Cod in Massachusetts and sample the famous clam chowder. Take a trip to Boston for a city break with a difference, where you can effortlessly combine the history of the Freedom Trail with the contemporary culture of Boston’s South End.
The Southern States
Known for hospitality, soul food, and fantastic music, the American South is worth discovering. Visit New Orleans for Creole cooking and jazz in the French Quarter, or take flights to Tennessee and visit Graceland, the home of Elvis.
If you’re planning on visiting Texas, you’ll need a few weeks and a good hire car. This fiercely independent state is larger than France!
Flights to Florida are popular with families, due to the theme parks surrounding the town of Orlando. Grown ups will find a similarly entertaining playground in tropical party town Miami.
The Midwest boasts lots of pretty towns and industrial cities, but is worth visiting just for a trip to the Great Lakes. For a St Patrick’s Day with a difference, fly to Chicago in Illinois and watch as they dye the river green in honour of Ireland’s patron saint.
Las Vegas sits like an oasis in the Mojave Desert, and is worth visiting just for the glitz and glamour even if casinos aren’t your thing. These desert states have some of the USA’s most beautiful natural attractions. The Grand Canyon alone encourage thousands to fly to America each year.
For an adventure sports enthusiast, a holiday in America wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the mountain states of Colorado, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. The mountains offer great hiking, white water rafting, skiing and snowboarding.
Spot celebrities in Los Angeles, try wine tasting in the Napa Valley, or enjoy the bohemian vibe of San Francisco. There’s enough to keep everyone occupied in California, with gorgeous beaches, vibrant cities, and a diverse countryside to boot.
Pack your umbrella if you’re planning flights to Washington or Oregon. Take a trip to Seattle, home of Nirvana and Starbucks, and immerse yourself in culture.
