From the Arctic Circle to the Pacific
Ocean, America's 50 states hold every landscape you can possibly
think of. Shimmering skyscrapers rise in the exciting cities of New
York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta; white spires and
timber-clad houses prevail in New England; Great Lakes and
grasslands sprawl in the east; purple mountains and coniferous
forests cloak the west; scorched deserts and spikey cacti lie in
the south, and in the central belt, endless highways and golden
fields roll towards the horizon.
From its immigrant origins, the land of opportunity is rich in
adventure. Walk the Freedom Trail in Boston and see the oldest
warship in the world, crane your neck at the Empire State Building
or kick back in Central Park, shop 'til you drop in Chicago's
streets and New York's malls, hike the highlands in Vermont, sail
the waters of Cape Cod, surf the breaks at LA and San Francisco, or
ride like a cowboy in Texas. But if fun in Florida is more your
thing, pick up our dedicated Florida brochure.
An entire world of flavours, and regional delights await. Try
Boston baked beans, New York bagels, California rolls and Texan
barbeques, slurp oysters in Chicago, clam chowder in New England,
and milk punch in New Orleans. For musical accompaniment with your
meal, head to the Deep South for blues, the Mid West for Motown or
New York for hip hop, salsa and Latino beats.
Teeming cities or quaint villages, century-old houses or
ultra-modern hotels, trendy beaches or windblown prairies - a
holiday in the USA can be whatever you want it to be.
