America is one of those countries that most Brits dream of travelling to, whether they’re intent on visiting the Grand Canyon or exploring the magic of Orlando’s theme parks. With global travel being back on the menu for some time now, many people are still busy planning their next big adventure.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas has always been on most Brits’ bucket lists, and for good reason. The strip is packed full of the most incredible casinos, restaurants, hotels, theme parks, and so much more. Additionally, if you’re a music fan, you’ll find that there’s always something going on. For example, the majority of hotel clubs host a number of DJ sets including Breathe Carolina. Alternatively, if your tastes are a little more alternative, you can squeeze in a little nostalgia by attending the When We Were Young festival. 

Boston, Massachusetts

Boston in Massachusetts is full of history thanks to its connections with important events during the American Revolution. If your family is interested in American history, this beautiful city should definitely be added to your must-visit list. There is lots to see and do for kids of all ages. Older children will enjoy the Freedom Trail, which hits key historical landmarks, and younger children will have lots of fun in the many parks and green spaces Boston is famous for. It is well worth considering Boston when you are planning family holidays to America.

New York City, New York

Turning away from the heat of Nevada and Florida, countless Brits are descending on New York City. Despite having colder winters than other areas, there are plenty of reasons why people are heading there. After all, if you’re from the UK, then a little bit of rain and cold won’t keep you from anything. 

There are countless activities to tick off in New York including a visit to Lady Liberty, a trek up the Empire State Building, a walk around Central Park, or a visit to take in the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. Regardless of your interests, you will find something to enjoy in New York. 

Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles is known for its warm weather, which sees a steady 21°C even in winter. There is plenty to do in LA, but some of the most attractive features for Brits are the exquisite hotels including the Thompson Hollywood, which features an incredible rooftop pool. 

Seattle, Washington

Seattle in Washington State is not always the first city Brits think of when they start planning a holiday in the US, but it is a vibrant city full of culture and surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in America. If you are a coffee addict, you’ll love Seattle. The coffee culture there is legendary. Check out the Museum of Pop Culture, enjoy the music scene, and go hiking in Olympic National Park. 

America has always been high on the list of travel destinations for Brits, and that’s because there’s so much on offer no matter which states you choose to visit.
