USA Holiday Packages and Destinations 2017-18
The apple of your eye
New York – a city steeped in history and culture – is a definite must on USA holidays, with the hi-rise skyline still offering plenty of things to do for the discerning traveller. Scenes from some of the most famous movies in history have been shot in The Big Apple, and there’s the additional treat of some of the most recognisable buildings anywhere on earth. If you’re wondering what the locals are eating, there’s plenty of pizza to go around, with New York accounting for a large portion of the 40 hectares of pizza consumed in the country each day!
For the full New York experience, you can’t pass on Bronx and Brooklyn Holiday Package Deals, which capture the essence of the unique culture of the most northern areas of the city. Try and catch the world famous New York Yankees at their brand new stadium too, providing the baseball fan with its own storied history montage.
It’s always St. Patrick’s Day in Boston
Long renowned for being the most Irish city outside of Ireland, Boston has its own fair share of remarkable history. It has been the hotspot for the emergence of American independence, and in recent years, has had a growing reputation as the cultural hub of the east coast. Another one for the baseball fans on USA holidays, is the renowned Boston Red Sox, with their ground Fenway Park acting as a tourist attraction in its own right as the oldest ballpark in the world.
Boston is, however, best known for its Irish heritage, and you can catch a glimpse of the Gaelic-American cultural fusion in one of the thousands of restaurants and bars lining the city’s streets.
The City of Angels
With the glitz and glamour of Beverly Hills and Hollywood, alongside the pristine beaches of Santa Monica and Venice, Los Angeles possesses an attraction for everyone on their USA holidays. The city’s culture relies on its ever pragmatic population, and it’s not out of the ordinary to come across a new, innovative way to claim fame in a city surrounded by it. LA is also well known as possessing the largest number of artists and musicians, meaning there will always be something to tantalise everyone’s creative side.
Be sure to wear flowers in your hair
The psychedelic capital of the world is something to behold, and San Francisco’s dazzling architecture, remarkable culture and stunning bay views will captivate all who visit this destination on their Holiday Package Deals. San Francisco is nestled on top of a highly mountainous region, so be sure to bring your hiking boots! Otherwise, the locals have been fairly innovative, and you can successfully negate the steep slopes, albeit in a twisty manner, with Lombard Street earning the right to be called the crookedest street in the world.
