Forget Disneyland. OK, OK, maybe don’t rule out the House of Mouse entirely, but with such an array of exciting activities and places to visit on offer, the USA is an ideal destination for a luxury family holiday, Mickey Mouse & mates or otherwise.

Tweens and teens especially will absolutely love America - from wildlife spotting in the National Parks to surfing in Hawaii, shopping in New York and trekking in California there are options galore. If you have very young kids, some of the flight times may well appear daunting, and if the thought of spending ten hours in a confined space at 30,000 ft with your little monsters strikes fear in your hearts, this may not be the destination for you. However, with some creative games and entertainment on board to keep them busy, provided by the patron-saints of family fun, Sharky and George, travelling can be a stress-free (and dare we say it, fun) experience.

Once there you'll soon realise that, in fact, very few countries on earth cater for luxury family holidays as well as the USA does. Our travel experts have travelled the length and breadth of the country (lucky devils) and in search of the very best places to go, things to do and places to stay during your luxury family holiday to the USA, here are their top picks…

The US is generally one of the best destinations for using airline loyalty schemes, and often getting there doesn't isn't much more than the cost of a European flight. Plan early, of course!

Where to go

New York

New York

Does it need an introduction? Go shopping, go partying, stay in an uber cool urban hotel, and enjoy your bite out of the Big Apple.



A buzzing contemporary art scene, a dance music scene threatening to rival that in Ibiza, the extremely sexy Cuban exile scene, and a gay see and be scene. It could only be Miami.



A continent's worth of luxury travel in one very, very special state.



Aloha. Welcome to the 50th State of the U S of A and one that is completely unlike any of the other 49.



A continent-sized country, the USA pretty much has it all, and Original Travel has cherry-picked the very best bits. We offer tailor-made trips to include experiences as different as the brash hedonism of Las Vegas and the wide open spaces of Montana, and the beaches of the Florida Keys or the majestic scenery of the Rocky Mountains.

We had such a brilliant experience booking through you and really appreciated all of your advice and support.
