There are fifty American states, each with its own culture, heritage and food scene.

Booking your break to the land of the free doesn’t have to break the bank; we have plenty of affordable hotels and package holidays available for you to browse right now.

Why holiday in America?

From famous TV shows like Friends and Brooklyn 99, to blockbuster films like Black Panther and Star Wars, the US is often front and centre when it comes to pop culture. Whether it’s the stars and stripes on the flag or the celebrity superstars, this nation is star-studded. Miami holidays are great for living the lifestyle of the rich and famous, but there are plenty of budget options too. Elsewhere in this vast, breathtaking country, you’ll find beautiful natural parks, hypermodern cityscapes and plenty of theme parks and iconic landmarks to tick off your travel wish list.

Beach holidays in America

There are plenty of states with stretches of beautiful shoreline to explore, but one of the best for beaches is Florida. The aptly named Sunshine State is great for soaking up the heat, with weather that’s close to being Caribbean – you can even see The Bahamas and Cuba from certain spots in Miami on clear days. For family beach days, we recommend South Pointe Park Beach. Here you’ll find ice cream parlours, paddling pools and a playground, not to mention that stunning stretch of sand that reaches into the Atlantic Ocean.
If you want to live that Miami lifestyle, there’s no better place than Miami Beach. This is a great place to see and be seen, not to mention all the opportunities for selfies and holiday snaps to make everyone back home jealous. Strut your stuff on Ocean Drive with your mates or your partner in crime – although there’s plenty to see for all ages here too. One more bay to enjoy the Floridian sunshine is Hollywood Beach. Although very different to the Hollywood in California, this beach is no less iconic in its ticking of every beachy box imaginable. Great views? Places to eat and drink? Sun, sand and sea as far as the eye can see? Check, check and check - beach holidays in America are unmatched.

Food and drink in America

America is an incredible melting pot of a country, meaning its food scene is world-class with international influences from all over the globe. Barbeque, Mexican, seafood, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, tapas… when it comes to what to eat, you’ll be spoilt for choice wherever you choose to stay. You can’t visit the US without tempting your taste buds with a deep-dish pizza pie – toppings and cooking styles vary across the country but this is always a delicious staple wherever you go.
When it comes to afters, All-American apple pie, cheesecake and pancakes are just some of the desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth. American fizzy drinks like Coca-Cola and alcoholic tipples like Jack Daniel’s whisky are famous no matter where you travel. Prefer a hot drink? Starbucks might be the most iconic American coffeehouse (after Central Perk), but there are plenty of artisan cafés selling incredible blends to discover – why not ask at your hotel for tips on where to find the perfect cup?

Visiting America

Tips for visiting America depend on where you decide to spend your holiday. If Las Vegas is on the cards, it’s worth checking out the event and gig schedule a few months before you fly. This means you can buy tickets to the hottest shows and neatly sidestep any disappointment. From sell-out stadium performances to Elvis tribute acts, experiencing the glitz and glamour of the Entertainment Capital of the World is a must. Popular venues include the Velveteen Rabbit and the Bunkhouse Saloon.
Orlando theme parks. Need we say more? The Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando are essential things to do – in fact, there’s enough to see at each of them to fill a few weeks’ worth of family holidays or fun couples’ escapes! From meeting your favourite Disney characters – now including Star Wars and the Marvel universe to sipping Butterbeer as you wander down Diagon Alley, these parks offer much more than rollercoaster rides. Although the rollercoasters are amazing, too.
