Summer in the USA

The beauty of deciding to spend your summer holiday in the USA is the sheer choice of destinations, experiences and cultures across this vast and diverse country. California alone showcases some of the world’s best cities, countryside and coastlines, from the rugged national parks full of wildlife and natural beauty; to the palm fringed coast of beautifully beachy Los Angeles, the cultural hub of San Francisco and the iconic stretch of road that stretches in between.

On the other side of the country you'll find towering skyscrapers and a rich culture in New York City which are perfectly complemented with the idyllic states of New England; plus the lesser-visited but no-less-interesting Carolinas and Georgia. Family-favourite Florida is always popular for summer holidays in the USA, but there are also plenty of other destinations that are well worth visiting if you want a hearty dose of sunshine, from big and bold Texas to mountainous Colorado and beautifully wild Alaska to heaven-on-Earth Hawaii.

Whether you want to spend your time exploring one place or hopping from city to city and coast to coast, our passionate team of Americas experts can create a tailor-made itinerary to suit you. Active adventurers can hike, bike, ride and kayak their way around; sun worshipers can spend lazy days on the beach between exploring intriguing towns and cities; culture vultures and foodies will love delving into the various diverse cultures across the country; and nature-lovers can make the entire country their playground.
