USA


USA

The USA is arguably the world's most diverse travel destination.

USA

From vast canyons and magnificent mountains to superb beaches, it really has it all.

USA

Add to that vibrant cities and a melting pot of cultures, and you'll see why it has captured the hearts of so many visitors.

America is a diverse country almost 3,000 miles wide so there is plenty of choice where to go on your trip, and a holiday to this diverse nation is always memorable. You can travel through stunning landscapes from the primeval-looking Joshua trees of the Mojave Desert to the saw-toothed peaks of the Rocky Mountains, the mile-deep Grand Canyon, and majestic Niagara Falls, or visit the pounding surf of Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Adrenaline junkies can explore untamed scenery in 59 national parks or have fun in theme parks such as Disney World and Universal Studios. Among more than 35,000 museums are historic monuments like the Statue Of Liberty and the ravishing Metropolitan Art Gallery in New York, and away from the headline attractions you can find your groove in laid-back small towns, travel down fabulous highways or take a trip on some of the greatest trains in the world, with glimpses into how it feels to be an American – just like in the movies.
