USA Holidays

A continent-sized country, the USA pretty much has it all, and Original Travel has cherry-picked the very best bits.

Will, Hero and Ysobel are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • The incredible diversity means the USA literally has something for everyone - cities, deserts, islands, mountains, wildlife, national parks and even rainforests, which makes it the perfect country for a truly bespoke, tailor made holiday
  • The exchange rate and the plentiful shopping opportunities mean that it's easy (almost too easy) to come home with an extra suitcase or two
  • It's fitting that, as the home of Hollywood, the hub of modern cinema, the USA has such widescreen impact - you won't experience such cinematically epic vistas anywhere else

Luxury Holidays to the USA: The Detail

We offer tailor made holidays 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.

Did you know

  • No official language exists in the USA, although English is the most commonly spoken
  • The USA is the 4th largest country in the world by land area and 3rd by population
  • The Mississippi River and the Missouri River combine to form the biggest river system in the US and the fourth biggest in the world
  • 100 acres of pizza are served in the US every day

The USA offers an extraordinary diversity of experiences. Our favourite USA holidays? Driving the beautiful, rugged coastline of Big Sur on the west coast, or sampling the pleasures of the Big Apple on the east. We'll tailor make your perfect luxury holiday - we can arrange all your accommodation, car hire, guides, you name it. In between, there are natural wonders such as Yosemite National Park and the Grand Canyon, and the USA is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, with great skiing in Utah a particular highlight.

Excellent infrastructure and internal connections means that the country's many attractions can be easily combined with each other, or with trips to Central America, the Caribbean and Canada, to create your ideal multi-centre holiday. Add a refreshing 'can do' attitude and exemplary service, and the USA is a country that's a pleasure to travel around.

Original Highlight

A road-trip is such a special way to explore this country – there are so many classic routes criss-crossing the USA. I loved cruising down Big Sur in California, and driving across Hawaii in a convertible Mustang wasn’t too shabby, either!

The National Parks

The National Parks

The American West

When a country is the size of a continent you’d expect it to have a national park or two, but a visitor to the States could spend every day of the year in a different park and still need another month or two to complete the set. In fact, the US National Park Service protects a total of 84 million acres across every state in the Union. Now that’s impressive.
