No other country boasts variety quite the way the United States of America does. From sleepy towns to vibrant cities, from desert plains to soaring mountain ranges, and from white sand beaches to unparallelled theme parks, there’s no shortage of choice on a USA holiday.

Discover the coastal glamour of California as you visit Los Angeles and travel along the rugged, untamed shoreline of the Big Sur region, or head inland to Arizona’s mighty Grand Canyon National Park. In the Deep South, music reigns supreme, second only to great food. Soft notes of jazz fills the air in New Orleans, Memphis’ Beale Street resonates with the blues, and Nashville’s country music beckons visitors onto honky tonk dance floors. Head east in the region’s famous fall foliage season and you’ll find New England’s sleepy towns, covered bridges, and rolling hills cosied under a blanket of red and gold.

The USA’s Big Names

Adventure abounds in the playground created by the USA’s landscapes, but between the mountains, lakes, beaches and forests sit iconic cities lit by lights almost as bright as their spirits. They call you to discover their vibrancy, their history and their unique cultures, from Washington DC’s political monuments and museums, to Boston’s red brick walkways; from New York’s Statue of Liberty, to Austin’s dynamic music scene.

With such a diverse range of destinations, why not visit a few places during your USA holiday? Hire a motorhome and experience some of the country’s most incredible national parks, like Yellowstone and Yosemite, or perhaps pair a beach stay on one of Hawaii’s enchanting islands with a Deep South adventure. When it comes to the USA, the possibilities are truly endless.

See the USA on two or four wheels – take the iconic Route 66 or cruise the rugged Pacific Coast from Los Angeles to Seattle. With EagleRider, you can hire a motorbike from one of 75 locations countrywide. Either create your own itinerary or join an escorted tour for guidance along the way. Drive on mountain roads and through national parks, Canyonlands and coastlines on the Wild West route, covering Las Vegas and Hollywood.

Cowboys and Ranches

Embrace your inner cowboy on ranch holidays the USA for an authentic Wild West experience. Holiday among the cactus covered peaks of Utah and Arizona and ride horseback through the dusty desert. In the Rockies, weave through deep forests, fascinating rock formations and gushing rivers, getting a feel for life as an all-American cowherder. At Carmel Valley Ranch in California, you can get lost in the vineyard and visit a farmstead.

Eat, eat, eat

It wouldn’t be a USA holiday without feasting on culinary delights. Whether it’s clam chowder in Boston, a classic hamburger with fries, a Texas BBQ, or a tasty slice of Chicago style deep dish pizza, you’ll be spoilt for choice every mealtime. Snack on bagels in Manhattan or, for a sweeter treat, order a stack of fluffy pancakes. Don’t forget the quintessentially American apple pie, with buttery pastry – or will you choose key lime or pecan?

Jessica, Destination Manager

"If you plan on visiting three or more national parks on your USA holiday, it’s well worth purchasing the ‘America the Beautiful’ pass, which saves you on entry fees. This pass is available on all national park gates."

Charlie, Destination Manager

"When it comes to dining out, don't always go with what’s familiar. Venture further and ask your hotel's concierge whether there is a restaurant or local area they recommend that’s off-the-beaten track. Some of the USA’s best restaurants are tucked away."

Charlie
Destination Manager

Events & Festivals

Festivals and events are wonderful to include during your USA holiday, offering a glimpse into the country’s authentic culture and traditions. 

 

Indy 500

Dubbed as ‘the greatest spectacle in racing’, the Indy 500 brings together 33 drivers each May to race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana.

Sundance Film Festival

Independence Day

One of the United States’ most celebrated days, Independence Day celebrates the country’s Declaration of Independence signed on the fourth of July 1776. Nowadays, Americans throughout the country spend each fourth of July marking the public holiday with celebrations and many scheduled events, including impressive fireworks displays. 

 

Super Bowl

An event that is akin to an American tradition, the Super Bowl is a yearly football game that sees two of the country’s leading football teams go head to head.

This patriotic event is well-known for its half-time entertainment that features incredible performances by some of music’s biggest names. 

 

Thanksgiving

In the USA, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each November.
