Legendary highways, bustling cities, national parks, surf-strewn coastal roads and tumbleweed deserts - the land we call home was built to be explored. Discover the sun-kissed west coast or historic east coast, the lakes of the north or the plains of the south - all you need to bring along is a sense of adventure and let the good times roll!
Hit the road this summer and get inspired by our country's jaw-droppingly beautiful national parks. This August we celebrate 100 amazing years of natural beauty, adventure and a bright future for the USA's 407 national parks. Don't miss out on your very own outdoor experience!
Zion National Park
Head to Southwest Utah for incredible views of Zion Canyon and marvelous local wildlife. Bike, hike or set off on a nature trail across the oldest national park in the state which is only a two and a half hour drive from Las Vegas!
Mammoth Cave National Park
Home to the longest cave system on Earth (over 627 kilometers!), Mammoth Cave National Park is located in Edmonson, Kentucky and offers exciting ranger-led cave tours, bike and nature trails. Keep your eyes peeled for those bats!
Yosemite National Park
If there's one national park to tick off your bucket list it's Yosemite! Known for its spectacular waterfalls and redwood forest, the park is set within California's Sierra Nevada moutains and is bursting with adventure.
Grand Canyon National Park
The Grand Canyon is undoubtedly the godfather of national parks, and visiting one of the seven wonders of the natural world doesn't just mean hiking, there's fantastic activities like helicopter rides and even star gazing to get involved in. Beat the crowds with a visit between March-May and September-November!
Famous worldwide for its beach-side glamour, Miami is perfect for a getaway. Kickback and relax in the city's warm sunshine, hang out on fashionable South Beach and check out the area's amazing Art Deco architecture.
Vegas baby! The only place on Earth where you'll find the whole world in one place. See the Statue of Liberty, ride a gondola in Venice, climb the Eiffel Tower and play blackjack in Monte Carlo. Loosen those purse strings and spend your days and nights (you won't know what time it is) sipping garish cocktails (they're free, water isn't) and partying until...well, there is no until.
LA, Tinseltown, La La Land...this happily schizophrenic city of high-earning celebs, struggling scriptwriters, uptight poodles and hang-loose surfers deserves a few aliases! For a city of billionaires and dreamers, LA is wonderfully down to earth and takes the stereotypes firmly on the chin. Just about everywhere has cult-status so dream big, it's LA!
New York, where to start? The cutting-edge city where trends are set, skyscrapers conquer and late nights are standard. Delve deep into the artsy district of the Lower East Side, check out SoHo's hip boutiques and get to the roots of Hell's Kitchen's devilish charm. Wolf down a deli sandwich in a 24-hour diner and rub shoulders with the rich and famous in West Village.
We have ourselves a vast country and with so much to see and do, it's often hard to know where to start. For the ultimate in flexibility you can't beat the freedom of a campervan. In fact, so famous has the States become for this style of travel, it's almost a rite of passage to hire your own home on wheels as part of your big American adventure!
The USA is so jam-packed with famous sights, it could literally take years to see it all. So grab your friends, pick up a car, hit the road and make a start! See the best of the USA on your own adventure, whether it be few days or a few weeks - it's all up to you!
From NYC to LA, San Fran to Miami, the USA has some epic cities to visit. Shop till you drop, see the world of the rich an famous, dine in famous restaurants and chill out in style - a US city break is a remedy for all!
