USA at a glance

The American dream lives on, and like so much in this country, it's supersized. City streets are laid out in perfect grids that stretch for miles; buildings and giant sequoia trees shoot skywards, while rivers carve deep canyons. Even in American diners, the portions are bigger. Far bigger. What should you do in the US? There is so much to see in the continent-sized United States: get up close and personal with a bear in Alaska, listen to jazz in Louisiana, photograph Chicago's architecture. Or perhaps imagine yourself as a cowboy riding in the Wild West, follow in the footsteps of filmmakers in New York City, make like a film star in California, lounge on Florida's beaches, marvel at the sheer power of Niagara Falls, cruise the Great Lakes, or self drive along Route 66. Pick from our USA travel guide to plan your trip.
