Cosmopolitan flair, famous sights, spectacular scenery and cultural diversity make San Francisco one of the top destinations in the world.

The famous Golden Gate Bridge provides a spectacular entrance to the city that somersaults over more than 40 hills – you’ve seen them in the movies! As the focal point of the 24 miles of coastline between the Golden Gate and the downtown area, Fisherman’s Wharf is known for its historic waterfront, interesting sites, dining and shopping. Union Square is the central shopping, hotel and theatre district of San Francisco. The area has a dynamic and cosmopolitan character with excellent dining options and upmarket department stores and designer boutiques.

San Francisco abounds with things to do and here are some of our favourites:

  • Wander through Fisherman’s Wharf – dine in one of the many seafood restaurants
  • Take a ferry to the still formidable prison, Alcatraz – once home to notorious gangsters like Al Capone
  • Be entertained by the street performers at San Francisco’s PIER 39
  • Ride on the world famous Cable Cars, the perfect way to explore the city
  • Watch the sea lions in the bay or lazing around K-Dock, which they have made their home

  • Climb up to Coit Tower and enjoy the sweeping views over the bay

Less than an hour from San Francisco is the start of California’s famed Wine Country leading into California’s stunning North Coast.

Napa Valley and Sonoma Country are two of the most famous wine growing regions in the world. Here, relax and enjoy the ‘good life’ with great places to stay and fun things to do. Napa has dozens of wineries and fine restaurants for tasting the best of Californian wines.

The countryside is beautiful with mustard flower covered hills, vast stretches of lush vineyards and black oak trees. Napa and other towns situated in the Valley feature quaint Main Streets with shopping, wine tasting and tours. Sonoma is known for its arts as well as its wine. Its unique downtown square is laid out in the old Spanish pueblo style with mission San Francisco de Solano, circa 1823. The northern Wine Country is dotted with hundreds of unique boutiques, art galleries, culinary schools and fine restaurants in and around Mendocino, Eureka, Sonoma, Santa Rosa and Healdsburg.

The rugged beauty of the northern coastline, stands in dramatic contrast to the peaceful grandeur of towering redwood forests. Walk through an ancient forest at Trees of Mystery, then visit the adjacent world–class Native American museum.

Even 150 years after the famous California “Gold Rush”, visitors are still discovering gold in Sacramento, California’s oldest incorporated city.

In the decades since fortune hunters flocked to the region in search of the glimmering metal, Sacramento has emerged into a cosmopolitan state capital that still retains its unique Gold Rush history. Sacramento has been called a snapshot of Wild West history in a modern, world–class city. The 28 acre town of historic buildings, museums and monuments emphasises strong preservation efforts in its wooden sidewalks, horse–drawn carriages, Pony Express monuments and Mississippi–style riverboats reflecting the nostalgic appeal of early American history.

In addition to all there is to see and do in Sacramento itself it is also the ideal base to explore the Wine Regions, the western foothills and atmospheric small towns of the Sierra Nevada and the Sacramento Gold Country. There are over 200 wineries in the 7 distinct appellations surrounding Sacramento. The region has been supplying grapes to neighbouring areas and has now started producing its own award–winning varietals. Explore the region on a self drive or an escorted wine tour experience. The surrounding Gold Country - named for the mining towns that sprang up during the Gold Rush years of the 1850s - is a region of the Sierra Nevada foothills that is filled with natural and cultural pleasures. Marshall Gold State Park is a significant historic site, where gold was first discovered in 1848, changing the course of California’s and the nation’s history.

Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

Here the Sierra Nevada rises to more than 13,000 feet. The mountain atmosphere is enhanced by the stunning scenic vistas of this truly unique part of the world. Immortalised by the photographs of Ansel Adams, Yosemite has become one of the ‘must–sees’ for visitors to California including its granite monoliths such as El Capitan.

To the south of Yosemite, Sequoia National Park is an unspoiled treasure of some of the most striking scenery in the world. From its towering giant sequoia trees and soaring mountain peaks to cascading creeks, flowering meadows and star studded evening skies, nature’s size, beauty and diversity can be experienced. Sequoia is contiguous with Kings Canyon National Park and spans over 400,000 acres.

The Monterey Peninsula includes Monterey, Carmel–by–the–Sea, Pacific Grove and famous Pebble Beach all within 5 miles of each other as well as Big Sur, a spectacular 26 mile coastal drive south of Carmel.

The Monterey Peninsula has been made famous by authors and artists such as John Steinbeck and Robinson Jeffers, who committed its beauty and lifestyles to manuscript or canvas. Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf and Cannery Row were immortalised in Steinbeck novels and today the city has one of the world’s most acclaimed aquariums. Carmel–by–the–Sea is one of the most beautiful destinations California’s Central Coast has to offer. Carmel is packed with art galleries, secret courtyards, all kinds of unique gift and galleries, as well as a multitude of wonderful places to dine.

The California Central Coast has become a prime location for those who desire the freedom and fun of the beach life as well as the comfort and tranquillity of the country life.

From Carmel to Santa Barbara via Big Sur, the most famous coastal road in the world - Pacific Coast Highway - ‘Highway 1’. This is an absolute must do scenic drive. Hearst Castle should not be missed. William Randolph Hearst, one of America’s most influential 20th Century figures, created this enormous art–filled estate. If California wine is on your vacation agenda, there are more than 250 vineyards and 30 wineries in this region including the award–winning Paso Robles, Santa Ynez and Santa Maria. Cambria, a quaint seaside village just six miles south of world renowned Hearst Castle is an artist’s colony nestled in a forest of towering Monterey pines. Cambria offers visitors sophisticated restaurants, art galleries, antique and speciality shops and scores of nearby wineries. Pismo Beach is a seaside community located on the Pacific Ocean and is famous for having one of California’s longest and widest stretches of beach. The area provides visitors a host of recreational activities like kayaking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding and ATV riding right at the beach. Nearby, check out the local shops and outlets and championship golf courses.

San Luis Obispo is a charming mission town surrounded by a rich and varied landscape of great natural beauty. Located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this is a perfect stopover for your tour down Highway 1. There’s a quaint downtown and the world–famous San Luis Obispo farmers market held every Thursday evening is a popular event.

Resting along the Pacific coastline are sandy beaches and surfing paradises which make the beach playgrounds of LA.

Santa Monica, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and Laguna Beach are four destinations for those who love to be by the sea.

Santa Monica is blessed with 3½ miles of broad sandy coastline. It is a compact, friendly and walkable city with a new metro line into Downtown LA. The city is just 20 minutes from Los Angeles airport and is famous for its beach and The Pier. Dating back to 1909, The Pier is an unique attraction that evokes the historic heyday of the beachfront carnival. Dining is fine and the shopping is superb especially along 3rd Street Promenade.

To the South, Huntington Beach exudes a surf vibe with 8 miles of sandy beach and bike path. The perfect location for those who wish to a relax in a beach resort but yet within a 30 minute drive of Disneyland without venturing onto a major highway. The small town, by the pier has surf shops, cafés and restaurants.

Newport Beach is the very close neighbouring city to Huntington Beach. A marina, fantastic seafood restaurants, beach and millionaire mansions line the coast and inlet. Take a boat trip out to spot sea lions, go shopping or laze on the beach which stretches 9 miles.

Laguna Beach is considered one of the most beautiful and luxurious California coastal towns. Home to mansions and quaint cottages that line bluffs above the sandy coves, this is the best place for tide pools and diving. Many boutiques, cafés and art galleries line the streets. Go surfing, cycling or take a day trip to one of the nearby islands.

Symbolised by the famous landmark hillside sign, the movie capital of Hollywood and glamorous Beverly Hills beckons.

Hollywood has long represented the glitz and glamour of the entertainment industry and millions of visitors come each year to pay homage to their favourite stars and perhaps even catch a glimpse of famous personalities.

Ideally tucked between cool ocean beaches and sunny mountain foothills, Beverly Hills lies along the north western edge of LA. Less than six square miles, Beverly Hills is a walking city where you can take a self–guided tour up and down Rodeo Drive or a tour of the many pieces of public art installed all over the city.

World–famous icons like Sunset Strip, Melrose Avenue and the Pacific Design Centre are a few of the attributes that define the city of West Hollywood.

Greater Palm Springs is the perfect getaway for outdoor adventure, luxurious resorts, boutique hotels, pampering spas and championship golf courses.

Nine distinct cities make up this desert oasis - Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Indio and Coachella. These all merge into one exciting destination - a mecca for golf, tennis and outdoor adventure, surrounded by breathtaking views and with over 350 days of sunshine.

Famed as the playground to the stars during Hollywood’s golden era, the quaint village atmosphere is complemented by a wealth of exciting events and attractions, night clubs, museums, restaurants, theatres, casinos and all kinds of outdoor recreation including hiking, horseback riding, and off–roading. Stroll among the many shops, galleries, eateries and coffee houses. The ever growing ‘Walk of Stars’ on Palm Canyon Drive honours the city’s pioneers and the celebrities who have contributed to the growth and fame.

Rising majestically just behind downtown Palm Springs is the impressive Mount San Jacinto, with an elevation of 8,516 feet. A 10 minute ride up the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, the World’s Largest Rotating Tramcar, transports you into the cool alpine forests of Mount San Jacinto.

Algonquin Park is a truly beautiful and quintessentially Canadian wilderness. Enjoy the serenity by hiking some of the trails or canoe routes and observing the local wildlife.

En-route to Algonquin Park don’t miss highlights such as ‘Marie Among the Hurons’, a historic site depicting a 17 th century fortress of the French Jesuit mission to the Huron nation and Ontario’s first European community, or to the Muskoka Lakes region which makes for a very scenic drive. Famed for its 1,600 freshwater lakes and striking granite outcroppings, Muskoka has been a celebrated vacation retreat since the 19th century.

 

The jewel of the Laurentians, Mont Tremblant is a European styled all-season resort village. Should you have missed the wildlife in the Algonquin Park, we encourage you to visit Parc Omega on your way to Mont Tremblant, which features endemic wildlife.

New Brunswick is an unspoiled wilderness of winding river routes to cultural corridors to coastal byways. 

The culture of the French colonists or “Acadians” is still present today in the arts, outdoor adventures and warm hospitality found in New Brunswick.  With over 1500 registered historic places, NB has many stories to tell. Learn the ancient legacy of the Mi’kmaq at Metepenagiag Heritage Park. Step into real Acadian time at Village Historique Acadien.

With a dozen provincial and national parks, you can hike majestic peaks or discover spectacular coastline vistas. New Brunswick introduces you to whales, bears, a plethora of birds including Atlantic puffins and other marine and wild animals. 

From Nova Scotia sail to Saint John to begin your explorations. If time allows, spend the night in Saint John. Not to be confused with “St John” in Newfoundland, this busy little cruise port is home to the Reversing Falls Bridge, historic architecture and Irving Nature Park, popular for birdwatching. 

To the north, the city of Fredericton sits on the Saint John River and puts you close to nature. Kayak on the river or bike the miles of riverside trails. Spend time in the historic Garrison District. Absorb the artistic climate of the local crafts and music scene. Check out the restaurants and hip new micro- breweries. 

The city of Moncton, with its strong Acadian culture, puts you close to plenty of NB entertainment.

Drive across the Confederation Bridge - one of Canada’s top engineering achievements of the 20th century - joining New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island.

Though a relatively small island just 140 miles long, PEI is a feast for the eyes. The rich agricultural landscape and river systems provide a special place to enjoy scenic drives, charming fishing villages, hiking and ecological tours. So too is it a feast for culinary lovers. Savour some of the finest seafood anywhere in the world including local lobster, oyster, mussels and scallops. 

Take a guided walk through the charming streets of Charlottetown and step back to 1864 and the events that led to the birth of the nation of Canada here. Rent a bicycle to absorb the energetic island vibe of the picturesque streets and along the boardwalk. 

PEI National Park provides the ultimate beach experience or a perfect walk along the Greenwich Dunes Trail.  Another top PEI activity is discovering the places that inspired Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery to write the novel “Anne of Green Gables”.  As depicted in the storybook, the island has rich sienna-coloured soil, lush green fields and pristine shorelines.

Springs. Walk on the Columbia Icefields. Hike along the shores or canoe the waters of Moraine Lake. Banff offers endless outdoor adventures.

This is the heart of Florida. There is no other vacation destination quite like it.

With the highest concentration anywhere of theme parks and attractions, it is no wonder that this area has earned its distinction as the ‘Vacation Capital of the World’. The choice of entertainment is practically endless. Disney’s uniquely themed parks — The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom — Universal Studios, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld®, Aquatica and Discovery Cove are the world–famous theme parks you won’t want to miss.

The action is virtually non–stop, with the parks open late and a nightlife that is equally unique and entertaining. In the summer months you can even spend a balmy evening at a water fun park like Wet ‘n Wild or Typhoon Lagoon. Food is part of the fun with a wide choice of good quality restaurants often with an all–you–can eat buffet. You can combine dinner with entertainment at one of the area’s themed dinner attractions. In case you find free time on your hands, you can ‘shop till you drop’in one of the enormous malls or factory outlets. The bargains are great!

The stretch of coast from St Pete to Clearwater boasts uncrowded beach resorts close to a host of activities that make for a perfect beach holiday.

For years visitors from all over the world have enjoyed Busch Gardens, the Salvador Dali Museum and Sunken Gardens, among the many fun and interesting places within easy reach. Sports enthusiasts will delight in the range of activities whether you are a participator or a spectator: Fishing, boating, golf, tennis and baseball to name just a few.

Clearwater Beach
For crystal seas and snow–white sands head for Clearwater Beach. Close by visit Florida’s marine life at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Catch the ‘Sunset at Pier 60’ party where crowds gather to watch the sunset as jugglers, magicians and musicians celebrate the spectacular display.

St Petersburg Beach
St Pete Beach has so many activities that you may never leave the island! Spend the day shopping on historic Corey Avenue, dine at a waterfront restaurant, or spend the day skim boarding. St Pete Beach is one of the few spots along the Gulf of Mexico known for surfing.

Indian Shores, Indian Rocks and Madeira Beach
Madeira Beach has outstanding fishing and is particularly famous for John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk — a unique collection of shops, boutiques and restaurants built on the water. From here you can hire boats for the day. Indian Shores and Indian Rocks Beach are the ‘friendly island’ towns with a laid back Florida lifestyle.

Anna Maria Island is a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico, lying just to the west of Bradenton on the mainland. Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here.

It is a place where “old Florida” charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph. High–rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from this pristine get away from it all island. Its seven miles are home to 3 cities — Bradenton Beach at the southern end, Holmes Beach in the centre and Anna Maria at the northern end. All three provide access to spectacular beaches, accommodations and outdoor activities — while at the same time offering an enjoyable selection of shops, restaurants, performing arts, wildlife, history and other attractions.

You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. No more than a few blocks wide, Anna Maria Island has the sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award–winning restaurants. Watch the sunset off the pier while sipping martinis and enjoying live music. Shop in the small boutiques. There is even a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly and relaxed environment will keep you coming back for more.

One visit to Anna Maria Island and you will be calling it, “My island in the sun”.

South of Sarasota on Florida’s West Coast lies unspoilt Manasota Key — a less well known stretch of glorious coastline, blessed with the beautiful waters of Lemon Bay and the Gulf, with dazzling beaches, turquoise seas and vivid sunsets.

With an average year–round temperature of 75°F and the sea nearly always in the 80’s, it is not surprising that those who have discovered one of Florida’s best kept secrets have not been in a hurry to tell others! This part of the Gulf Coast offers a wide variety of exotic plant and animal life. You will often see dolphins at play just off the beach or in the many waterways. Watch for the scores of markers on the beach which tell you where Logger–head turtles have struggled ashore to lay their eggs. You can stroll along the beach to collect shells, take a relaxed dip in the sea and watch the sun go down… A lifestyle for which the word idyllic was surely invented.

Venice
Just south of Sarasota along Florida’s white sanded Gulf Coast, Venice offers 14 miles of beaches and plenty of recreational opportunities, including swimming, sunbathing, fishing and boating. Shelling is also a favourite pastime, and fossilized shark’s teeth can be found in abundance by sifting through the sand. Golfers enjoy excellent courses in the greater Venice area. Venice also is a Florida Main Street City — its downtown graced by northern Italian architecture and beautifully landscaped boulevards.

Discover the sister islands of Sanibel and Captiva which offer stunning and unspoilt beach getaway vacations.

Sanibel Island
Connected to the mainland by a 3 mile causeway, Sanibel Island is truly a special place. The only ‘main’ road on Sanibel is Periwinkle Way which winds its way through the centre of the crescent shaped island lined with trees and bike paths. Biking is a favourite form of transport on Sanibel and is a great way to ease yourself into the unhurried pace. The ‘Ding’ Darling National Wildlife Refuge is a 5,000 acre preservation area which can be enjoyed via a scenic biking, walking or driving route. Shops and boutiques are tucked unobtrusively among tropical landscaping on Sanibel.

Captiva Island
Captiva is the sister island to Sanibel, both connected by a small bridge, and stretching for 5 miles to its northern tip. Captiva is a beach ‘village’ and a beautiful unspoilt destination. Tennis, golf, boating and fishing are popular — or just take a leisurely stroll at sunset on the crystal white sandy beach — do as much or as little as you please.

On Florida’s East Coast is a vacation destination where natural wonder and exhilarating adventures go hand in hand.


The Space Coast
Miles of beaches, national wildlife refuges, a national seashore, the Kennedy Space Centre Visitor Complex, Port Canaveral cruises, an interactive Zoo experience, golf, fishing and more await you. So named the ‘Space Coast’ this is where America’s Manned Space Program started in the 1950s at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and the home of modern day Kennedy Space Centre.

Amelia Island
Amelia Island lies off the northeast corner of Florida and boasts 26 square miles of rich history and natural beauty. There are miles of pristine quartz beaches, the historic Centre Street with its row of eclectic shops and challenging golf courses amongst the island’s varied terrain.

St Augustine is one of America’s top most walkable cities. The historic district takes you through four centuries of history with its preserved buildings along the narrow bricked streets.

Teeming with activities, the islands of the Florida Keys make for a classic Florida vacation.

Duck Key
Halfway down the Florida Keys, you’ll find the island of Duck Key. It’s small and secluded, yet central to Miami and Key West. With aquamarine water all around and glorious sunrises and sunsets, you will be lulled into a state of total relaxation — except for when you’re out fishing, snorkelling, paddleboarding or flying around on a waverunner.

Islamorada & Marathon
Islamorada comprises of six little islands, so give yourself time to explore. It’s known as the sport fishing capital of the world, so it’s no wonder the seafood restaurants are as excellent as they are. Diving is big down here — to see just how big, visit the History of Diving Museum. For a sandy beach, head to Anne’s Beach where the water is always warm and crystal clear. The Islands of Marathon boast some of the best boating activities anywhere, including deep sea, reef or flats fishing, plus a local sand bar, waterfront restaurants, jet ski tours, kayaking, paddle boarding — or just cruising the turquoise waters.

Key West
The southernmost town in the United States has always drawn the colourful and creative. Everyone from Tennessee Williams to Judy Blume has called it home. Then there’s Hemingway, whose house is now a museum. The streets are filled with cafés, open air bars, legendary pubs and world–class restaurants. Discover Duval Street, ‘the longest street’ in America and the home of the Pina Colada.

Hawaii is more than just being one of the world’s paradises. Beyond the deep blue ocean, the emerald valleys and golden sands, the Hawaiian Islands feature some awesome experiences that truly set it apart from the rest of the world.

Each of the six Hawaiian islands has its own cultural identity. Be enchanted by Kauai’s lush, natural beauty, learn to surf at Waikiki Beach on Oahu, explore an artist community in the town of Paia on Maui or hike to a secluded waterfall on Hawaii’s Big Island.

The diverse culture of Hawaii is expressed in many ways through its language, music, art, theatre, dance, cuisine and a multitude of festivals. At the core is the spirit of Aloha, gracefully conveyed in a painter’s brush stroke, in the fluid arc of a hula dancer’s hand,or in the soft rhythm of a slack key guitar. When you visit Hawaii you will feel the warmth, open–hearted generosity, passion and gentle humour that are the components of Aloha. Discover these unique islands, its people and the culture, all combining to make this a truly special place.

Getting There

We highly recommend twining your Hawaiian holiday with a US city perhaps Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles or Las Vegas or you can just overnight en route. It is possible to get to Hawaii from the UK on the same day, but the journey time is close to 24 hours.

Climate & Weather

There are essentially only two seasons in Hawaii, with Summer being May to October. The average daytime temperatures in Summer is 29ºC and in Winter it is 25ºC. The wettest months are in Winter, but the rain is very localised and it can be sunny just round the corner.

Known as the ‘Valley Isle’, Maui is a tropical paradise and home to world–famous beaches.


Hawaii’s 2nd largest island is an outdoor lover’s paradise. Hiking, farm tours, snorkelling, paddle boarding and helicopter tours are just some of the ways to enjoy Maui. Total relaxation is also on offer whilst staying in the luxurious and welcoming accommodations.

Wailea is known for its five beautiful, crescent–shaped beaches and stellar golf courses. A luxurious resort community with 1,500 acres of staggering ocean views, you will find excellent swimming and snorkelling along with world–renowned spas, great restaurants and shopping.

The northwest coast region is also home to beautiful beaches, and Ka’anapali Beach was once named America’s Best Beach. With resort hotels and condominiums, Kaanapali features championship golf courses and Whalers Village shopping and restaurant complex. See the daily cliff diving ceremony off Black Rock or snorkel the clear blue waters below.

In the nearby historic town of Lahaina, stroll down lively Front Street with its art galleries and historic sites. And don’t miss experiencing traditional
cuisine and entertainment at a Luau. In winter, set sail from Lahaina Harbor on an unforgettable whale watching tour.

Maui is an exhilarating blend of natural beauty and outdoor fun. Along with the island’s most popular attraction — the gorgeous beaches — there is a wondrous national park, a legendary Highway drive, hikes through bamboo forests and plenty of opportunities for learning a new skill in the water.

Hawaii is more than just being one of the world’s paradises. Beyond the deep blue ocean, the emerald valleys and golden sands, the Hawaiian Islands feature some awesome experiences that truly set it apart from the rest of the world.

Each of the six Hawaiian islands has its own cultural identity. Be enchanted by Kauai’s lush, natural beauty, learn to surf at Waikiki Beach on Oahu, explore an artist community in the town of Paia on Maui or hike to a secluded waterfall on Hawaii’s Big Island.

The diverse culture of Hawaii is expressed in many ways through its language, music, art, theatre, dance, cuisine and a multitude of festivals. At the core is the spirit of Aloha, gracefully conveyed in a painter’s brush stroke, in the fluid arc of a hula dancer’s hand,or in the soft rhythm of a slack key guitar. When you visit Hawaii you will feel the warmth, open–hearted generosity, passion and gentle humour that are the components of Aloha. Discover these unique islands, its people and the culture, all combining to make this a truly special place.

Getting There

We highly recommend twining your Hawaiian holiday with a US city perhaps Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles or Las Vegas or you can just overnight en route. It is possible to get to Hawaii from the UK on the same day, but the journey time is close to 24 hours.

Climate & Weather

There are essentially only two seasons in Hawaii, with Summer being May to October. The average daytime temperatures in Summer is 29ºC and in Winter it is 25ºC. The wettest months are in Winter, but the rain is very localised and it can be sunny just round the corner.

A holiday to New England encapsulates rural America: White wooden churches and clapboard houses nestling among the trees, grey timbered barns set amid lush pastures, and delicious wholesome foods such as blueberries and cranberries, maple syrup and succulent shellfish.

Whenever you visit New England each season has its own distinctive charm. In winter the land often rests under a crisp blanket of snow, spring brings the blossoming of the trees and flowers and rich green colouring, summer days are filled with sunshine tempting people out to the delightful coastal villages, and Fall with its gold, yellow, russet and vermilion hues creates a glorious landscape.

The New England region of America is comprised of six very unique states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont — all easily reached through the delightful historic city of Boston or Hartford, the capital of Connecticut. Combine them all on your New England fly drive as you travel from coast to mountains, beaches to lakes and city to villages. On your New England holiday treat yourself with a stay in traditional and cosy inns, mansion houses, beach resorts and luxury hotels.

A road trip to New England is like no other with amazing scenic drives from coast to mountains and yet has the same rural historic American ambience. Famous for viewing the Fall foliage, as the birthplace of America, lobster and blueberry pie!

Best Features and things to do

Rich American history - The place of the Pilgrim landings, the start of the American Revolution, part of the slave underground railroad and the new home of the Von Trapp Family.

Boston is the gateway to New England. Here you will find a mix of Colonial charm and urban sophistication.

This is a dynamic and exciting city offering a wealth of activities for young and old whatever your interest: Sightseeing, shopping, fine dining and night life. Boston is a delightful walking city. The Freedom Trail is a 3 mile historic walk through Old Boston marked by a red painted stripe on the city’s sidewalks, cobblestones and brick paths. There are also excellent sightseeing trolleys which stop at points of interest enabling you to get on and off as often as you wish. Visit the significant sites of the American Revolution, Paul Revere’s House, Faneuil Hall, the Aquarium, the Cheers bar of TV fame and much more!

It’s a shoppers paradise in Boston, whether you seek a designer bargain at Filene’s basement, decide to window shop at the intriguingly beautiful shops of Newbury Street, wish to soak up the ‘Covent Garden style’ atmosphere of Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall Marketplace or experience the malls of Copley Square and the Prudential Centre featuring Saks Fifth Avenue amongst many!

Located 90 minutes from Boston, visitors to Cape Cod find seaside villages with clapboard houses, majestic whaling captains’ homes and village greens. Beaches and freshwater ponds beckon bathers out on hot summer days.

With town names reminiscent of England: Chatham, Harwich, Falmouth and Barnstable, there are a host of historical and cultural experiences such as Heritage Plantation, Provincetown, Hyannis and nearby Plimoth–Plantation. Whale watching from June to late October is a must during your stay on the Cape. Quaint villages with speciality shops and excellent dining opportunities round out this perfect vacation destination. 

A 40 minute ferry ride from Cape Cod or a short flight from New York and Boston, Martha’s Vineyard has always been a quiet haven for the rich and famous. With its rustic and unspoilt beaches, wildlife refuges, bike trails and quiet roads you can enjoy leisurely pursuits, particularly if you feel the need to work off the meals you will enjoy in the many excellent restaurants!

With a wonderfully varied landscape, historic properties and cobblestoned streets, Nantucket takes you back to a gentler time. More than 800 preserved buildings are found here with one–third of Nantucket’s 50 square miles designated as conservation land.

The North Shore of Massachusetts, which sits on Boston’s doorstep, is known for its historical seaport towns, sweeping beaches and quaint New England villages.

Salem is probably the most well–known city of this region, particularly for the infamous Salem Witch Trials of 1692, which is a theme of the town. Visit the House of Seven Gables, the Peabody Essex Museum and Pioneer Village.
 
The North Shore area boasts many charming coastal towns. Marblehead is just 4 miles from Salem and showcases a beautiful east coast harbour. You can dine in great restaurants, enjoy sensational shopping and tour historic mansions.
 
Gloucester is America’s original seaport and one of the oldest art colonies as well as a top fishing port at Rocky Neck. Wander through the Harbortown Cultural District in the heart of downtown. A place to see and feel the history and dine on fresh seafood.

Rockport is another community on the Cape Ann coast, at the midpoint of the Essex Coastal Scenic Byway. A picturesque seaside village and thriving artist colony, you can watch craftsmen at work or lobstermen hauling their traps.
 
Unspoilt beaches, lighthouses, boating trips including whale watching, museums and historical sites round out the many activities for an enjoyable
stay in the North of Boston region.

Few places can combine culture with beautiful countryside as well as the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

Ideally located just over 2 hours from both Boston and New York City, the area is a mecca of museums, historic sites, music, dance and art venues. In addition there are outstanding opportunities for golfing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and other watersports. Wintersports include alpine and cross country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. All of these activities take place amid spectacularly scenic rural hills, dotted with mountain streams and lakes.

As a crossroads of culture, the Berkshires attracts chefs and restaurateurs who are artists in their own right. Dining is wonderfully varied and often surpasses the highest expectations. There is also an incredible range of retail establishments. From the Vermont state line south to the Connecticut border, you’ll find an unbelievable array of quaint and cutting edge Berkshires shops — from antiques dealers to outlets to myriad specialty shops.

Rhode Island is the smallest of the fifty US states but boasts the highest concentration of historic landmarks and buildings in the entire country.

Newport is one of the great maritime cities of the world. It is best known for its opulent estates and mansions many of which are open to the public. America’s wealthiest families such as the Vanderbilts and the Astors built ‘summer cottages’ here that rival imperial palaces! There are also seagoing mansions (called yachts!) — and some of the worlds most splendid call Newport home.

Take a harbour cruise, visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame, see the America’s Cup Museum and explore the plentiful art galleries. No trip to Newport would be complete without a stroll along the spectacular 3 mile Cliff Walk which begins at Easton’s Beach and runs along Newport’s cliffs. The allure and charm of this unique seaside playground, with its art and jazz festivals, excellent restaurants, historic sites and museums, lively harbour front, scenic vistas, and refreshing sea breezes all combine to create a most memorable and enjoyable experience.

With a thriving arts community, vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods and a renowned restaurant scene, Providence is the perfect place to visit. The city’s compact size and convenient location make it easy to get to and hard to forget.

The beauty of Vermont begins the moment you enter the state. A land of fields and forests, glistening lakes and gentle mountains, it is relentlessly beautiful.

A commitment to preserving wide open spaces including the absence of billboards makes the views even more appealing. Autumn brings a blaze of colour; amber, gold, crimson like nowhere else in the world!

Vermont is New England as it was. Village greens with classic clapboard houses and pristine steepled churches stand side by side working farms where golden maple syrup is tapped from tall trees.

For those who love outdoors, enjoy Vermont’s hiking trails, fishing and scenic drives. Winter offers some of the best skiing in Eastern US.

In the south of Vermont you will find the most popular scenic drive — Route 100. Visit the lovely gardens and house of Hildene, the Georgian revival home of Abraham Lincoln’s son or the designer outlets in Manchester.

Don’t miss Woodstock, the quintessential New England village. With a covered bridge in the middle of town and stately homes all around; the village is full of unique shops, galleries, country stores and fine restaurants. Quechee Gorge and Billings Farm and Museum are must dos in this beautiful part of Vermont.

In the north, discover Stowe, New England’s infamous mountain village which transforms each year into a winter playground. Close by is one of the happiest places in Vermont — Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory tour!

New Hampshire offers visitors the opportunity to explore a varied landscape, rich in the hallmarks of Scenic New England.

The valley is a gateway to the 780,000 acre White Mountain National Forest with 1,200 miles of hiking trails and 700 miles of cycle paths. Waterfalls are a frequent sight thanks to the terrain. Another unique attraction is the wealth of historic covered bridges and over 50 of these can be found throughout the countryside. Along the way, white clapboard houses and churches stand prominently over delightful village greens.

Jackson and North Conway are scenic gateway villages to the many attractions of the Mount Washington Valley. North Conway is the region’s liveliest town and has become a major shopping destination with scores of factory outlet stores as well as one–of–a–kind shops. A train ride aboard the Conway Scenic Railroad provides an unusually pleasant way to view the splendour of this magnificent mountain region through the spectacular Crawford Notch.

The Lakes Region is another aspect of the state’s natural appeal with the centrepiece Lake Winnipesaukee, one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in the United States, and Squam Lake which became known as Golden Pond ever since the movie of the same name was filmed here. The historic city of Portsmouth, one of the original Pilgrim settlements, sits at the centre of the region's charming coastline.

Elsewhere in Southern New Hampshire, explore Concord a delightful walkable city and Canterbury Shaker Village.

Maine is the northernmost east coast state and is known throughout the world for its spectacular rugged coastline, inviting harbours and quaint towns.

With more than 60 lighthouses spread along the miles of coast, inlets and islands, these are an important part of local history and popular tourist attractions. “Maine Lobster” is known throughout the world and your trip won’t be complete without enjoying some. Boat tours provide a hands–on experience; sample a delicious lobster roll, or put on your bib and get ‘cracking’!

Along the southern coast, you’ll find historic seaside villages. Visit Kennebunkport, Ogunquit and York and soak up the charm. Kennebunkport’s Dock Square is where visitors love to shop in the boutiques and enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants. Or simply relax by the sandy beaches in Ogunquit and York. Portland offers a mixture of artistic and outdoor adventures. Take a boat tour to lighthouses.

Explore the galleries and museums. Along the midcoast is Boothbay Harbor, home to yachts, lobster boats and other working craft. The downtown area boasts waterfront restaurants, art galleries and antique shops as well as the Maine State Aquarium. There are plenty of boating
opportunities and the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is not to be missed!

Spend the night in a charming Inn in the classic town of Rockland, the lobster capital of the world. Further north, Camden’s crooked streets around the harbour offer enticing shops, galleries, and restaurants, and sightseeing boats await their next cruise. Bar Harbor also offers a vibrant local scene of cafés and boutiques and its greatest natural attraction — spectacular Acadia National Park!

A holiday to New England encapsulates rural America: White wooden churches and clapboard houses nestling among the trees, grey timbered barns set amid lush pastures, and delicious wholesome foods such as blueberries and cranberries, maple syrup and succulent shellfish.

Whenever you visit New England each season has its own distinctive charm. In winter the land often rests under a crisp blanket of snow, spring brings the blossoming of the trees and flowers and rich green colouring, summer days are filled with sunshine tempting people out to the delightful coastal villages, and Fall with its gold, yellow, russet and vermilion hues creates a glorious landscape.

The New England region of America is comprised of six very unique states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont — all easily reached through the delightful historic city of Boston or Hartford, the capital of Connecticut.

Gettysburg is the site of the significant Civil War battle which took the life of over 50,000 people. Spend your day starting at the excellent Museum & Visitor Center to learn more about this dramatic event and guide you on your tour.

One of the country’s best–known Amish settlements, the Pennsylvania Dutch County is not to be missed. Learn about Amish home life, customs and traditions and how they adapt to the modern world around them. Book a guided tour where you might see their craftsmen at work or enjoy a hearty Amish meal.

For a unique and fun–for–all experience, visit the chocolate–famed town of Hershey. Ride the roller coasters and rides at Hersheypark®. Immerse yourself in the flavourful world of chocolate on the tours and tastings at Hershey’s Chocolate World.

Pennsylvania offers plenty of outdoor activities including the beautiful Pocono Mountains in the northeast. Shopping can be another fun pastime with no sales tax here!

Chicago is the ultimate American city: A breathtaking skyline set on stunning Lake Michigan, unrivalled architecture, fantastic shopping and dining, major league sports and a world–class music scene, especially Blues and Jazz!

Walk along the awesome shore of beautiful Lake Michigan. Take in the impressive views from the Willis Tower. Sip cocktails from the observation deck of the John Hancock Tower. Learn about Chicago’s famous architecture on a river cruise. Chicago is also the start — or end — to your Route 66 Tour , travelling via Illinois’s rolling countryside.

The five Great Lakes comprise the largest freshwater body of water in the world and include eight U.S. states. Michigan is surrounded by four of the five and provides a wonderful road trip opportunity with endless stretches of freshwater beaches, dunes, wineries and orchards. To the north, Mackinac Island is car free and takes you back to a simpler era of grace and leisure.

Detroit sits on the water’s edge and is best–known for the music of Motown and history of Ford Motors. St Louis sits on the Mississippi River and features famous Gateway Arch, and is also well–known for baseball, barbecue and breweries.

Minneapolis is a gateway city and home to the huge Mall of America. Downtown’s indoor pedestrian bridges connect you to 69 blocks of museums and restaurants, and Prince’s Paisley Park is a popular Minneapolis attraction.

South Carolina is known for its beaches, sea islands, historic plantation houses and the treasured city of Charleston with its paste coloured stately homes.

Charleston is America’s most beautifully preserved architectural and historic treasure, with a rich 300 year heritage. The first decisive American victory during the Revolution, the first regularly scheduled passenger train service in America, the initial shots of the Civil War — Charleston is steeped in history. Step back in time and stroll the cobblestone streets of the historic district. Visit the plantation homes, tour the war related sites like Ft. Sumter or experience the magnificent South Carolina Aquarium.

To the south of Charleston, Hilton Head’s 42 square miles are lapped by gentle waters of the Atlantic Ocean, edged with breathtaking broad sandy beaches. On this idyllic island cycle, shop, golf, play tennis, go dolphin watching and plunge into the multitude of water sports on offer.

Off the coast of Hilton Head, Beaufort is a charming town which together with its surrounding sea islands has rich history including African–American heritage.

Sixty miles of wide, soft sandy beaches, thrilling water sports, amusement parks, live entertainment and exciting nightlife, shopping and world–class golf — Myrtle Beach “offers everything for everyone”! With the highest concentration of attractions outside Orlando, the area is an ideal family vacation destination.

Head to ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and discover all that this Deep South state has to offer!

No trip to the ‘Deep South’ is complete without a stay in Alabama. From the northern region with its scenic lakes and mountains, to the cities of Birmingham and Montgomery in the central state area, to historic Mobile and the lovely Gulf Beaches in the south, Alabama offers so much to see and do!

Birmingham is the largest city and is known for its role in the Civil Rights Movement. Stroll through historic downtown and visit the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church and the staging ground for protest marches during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

Alabama’s compact capital, Montgomery, designated the USA’s ‘Best Historic City’, dates back to 1861. Explore the First White House of the Confederacy, the Capitol Building, Old Alabama Town and landmarks of the Civil Rights movement.

Head north and you will find one of the more unexpected highlights of Alabama — the awe–inspiring US Space & Rocket Centre in Huntsville. Northern Alabama is also an area of natural beauty with 70% of the Lookout Mountain range lying here.

Southern Alabama is nestled along the beautiful Gulf of Mexico with sugar–sand beaches. You can hike miles of trails, go on a dolphin watching trip, or discover endless waterways via kayak.

From the birthplace of Elvis Presley, to soaking up blues music, to civil war history, exploring Mississippi is an experience that touches everyone.

A blend of quaint towns and wide–open fields of cotton, it’s like stepping back in time. There must be something magic in this land with its depth of cultural richness that few places in the world can rival.

Known as the “Birthplace of America’s Music”, Mississippi has literally shaped the course of modern music with its contributions to blues, jazz, rock, country and gospel.

Lined by sandy white beaches and the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi Gulf Coast offers 62 miles of scenic shoreline for you to discover. Take an eco–tour or go kayaking among the barrier islands, cycle along the stunning coastline, board the ferry and go snorkelling at Ship Island. Taste the unique and mouth–watering cuisine including seafood and southern BBQ.


Mississippi is steeped in history and heritage. The Natchez Trace Parkway, which runs 444 miles from Natchez to Nashville, is more than 8,000 years old. Originally ‘traced out’ by buffalo, the road was then travelled by traders, missionaries, early settlers and Indians. Civil War and Civil Rights history comes alive in The Capital/River region. Stately antebellum homes celebrate the romance of a bygone era while Civil War battlefields remind us of the more than 80,000 Mississippians who served as Confederate soldiers.

Mississippi’s culinary heritage has food to please every palate. From catfish to comeback sauce, from tamales to traditional Southern sweets, from shrimp to slugburgers to sweet potatoes, the state is home to award–winning chefs and some of the best home cooks and out of the way diners to be found anywhere.

South Louisiana has a rich culture all of its own with grand sugar plantation houses, Cajun music & food and French language.

The art of Cajun cooking was perfected inside plantation kitchens. Antebellum plantations like Oak Alley, Houmas House, Laura: A Creole Plantation and Evergreen to name but a few on the Greater River Road near Baton Rouge, offers a glimpse into the unique history of Louisiana.

 

Nature abounds in Louisiana’s swamps and bayous. Cypress Island/Lake Martin Swamp, near Lafayette, is famous for its impressive scenic beauty and wildlife. Take an eco–swamp tour and see classic Louisiana swamps with alligators, egrets, herons, bayous and ancient cypress trees covered with Spanish moss.

A trip to Arkansas wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Hot Springs where world–famous therma waters flow into the historic downtown district of the city. About a million gallons of the 143°F water issue forth daily from 47 hot springs!

The state capital, Little Rock, offers travellers so much to do with an impressive array of museums including the Clinton Library, scenic byways to drive and state parks and mountains for outdoor adventure. Upstate Eureka Springs offers old–world charm and timeless leisure.

Home to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota offers picturesque landscapes, vibrant cities, and local history.

Take in the rugged Badlands and abundant wildlife of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Keep your eye open for wild horses, bison, deer, elk and coyotes as you explore the park grounds. It was in this area that the 26th US President spent his time as a rancher which helped shape the country’s conservation policy leading to the establishment of the eventual National Park Service. In the small gateway town of Medora, take in the Medora Musical and feast on a traditional western pitchfork fondue.

Experience Native American heritage at the home of the annual United Tribes International PowWow in Bismarck – be ready for traditional drumming, dancing and singing! Discover North Dakota’s early history at nearby Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park or visit Bismark’s historic Cathedral district.

The State’s largest city, Fargo, has a modern yet traditional feel and its bustling downtown is filled with unique shops and restaurants. Fargo embraces untraditional thinking and the many artists and musicians who live here are inspired by the city’s spirit every day.

North Dakota is the perfect destination for outdoor recreation. Mountain bikers, hikers and horse riders will be in their element on the 140-mile Maah Daah Hey Trail that runs through the Badlands of North Dakota. Other popular activities include kayaking, canoeing and year-round fishing.

Colorado’s beauty inspires you to get out and enjoy every moment, whether on a Rocky Mountain trail, the banks of a shimmering lake, on a scenic Fall drive or a crisp ski run.

Denver, ‘the mile high city’ is the gateway city. With 300 days of sunshine, a walkable downtown, thriving arts and culture, an award–winning culinary scene, and the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, Denver offers an affordable mix of urban sophistication and outdoor adventure. Not to mention its thriving micro–brewery scene. Rocky Mountain National Park in Northern Colorado boasts majestic peaks, wildlife roaming the valleys and some of the most incredible outdoor adventures. Stay in Estes Park to experience it all.

Once the snow melts, the famous ski resorts of Aspen and Vail offer a feast of summer activities and music festivals. From Aspen hike to the spectacular Maroon Bells or enjoy magical views as the gondola in Vail whisks you up above 10,000 feet. By the city of Colorado Springs, take in the breathtaking geological wonders in Garden of the Gods Park, Cave of the Winds and Paint Mines Interpretive Park. Located in Southern Colorado, Durango is the perfect gateway to experience the history of the American West. It is home of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, one of the most scenic train journeys. To the west is Mesa Verde National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site with some of the most well preserved ancient cliff dwellings.

Standing proud the state of Texas was once an independent nation. This vast state - 700 miles from east to west and more than 800 from top to bottom, offers fascinating adventures. So come on and pack your Stetson!

The city of Dallas is famous, of course, for its NFL Cowboys as well as the namesake 1980’s TV series. A glamorous spirit still prevails in its upscale restaurants and nightlife. The museums here are excellent and unique — history fanatics should not miss the memorials to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

Austin has so much to offer famous music festivals and live music at hundreds of venues. Enjoy watching an iconic football game, tuck into some delicious TexMex, shop on eclectic Congress Avenue and marvel at the Mexican free–tailed bats emerging from the Congress Bridge every night. Head outdoors to the Hill Country for hiking, swimming and wine tasting.

San Antonio’s Riverwalk, full of restaurants and bars is tucked quietly below the city’s street level. Perfect for a river cruise, it is located close to all the attractions including the famous Alamo and other historic Spanish missions.

Houston is synonymous with America’s space programme. Outside the city take a trip to visit NASA’s Space Center and Galveston Island. Houston itself is chic and full of south western charm. Take a stroll through the historic Heights or spend the day exploring the Museum District.

Travel onto the coast of Texas and you’ll find quaint seaside towns, incredible views and soft sandy beaches.

Along Route 66, Oklahoma is a midwest state full surprises and pioneer sprirt.

From forests to sand dunes to rolling prairies to cypress swamps, Oklahoma has more diverse terrain per square mile than any other state. It also contains the headquarters of 39 Native American nations, world-class Western art museums, real-life cowboys and the most driveable miles of Route 66 (with some of the best-preserved roadside attractions).

A road trip down Route 66 in Oklahoma will lead you to larger-than-life ku-ku birds, giant totem poles, friendly whales, historic relics, over 600 flavours of soda and even “alien” yard art. Be sure to bring your camera along – these unique photo-ops shouldn’t be missed!

Oregon and Washington State combine to create the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Rich in natural beauty, Oregon features the adventurous city of Portland, a beautiful coastline, and the Crater Lake National Park, and plenty of outdoor adventures. Columbia River Gorge and the Mount Hood Territory provide a scenic backdrop to the hip vibe in Portland. Oregon boasts 630 miles of unspoilt Pacific coastline. In Southern Oregon, Crater Lake — the deepest in the USA
— sits atop the Cascade Mountain Range and the historic towns of the Rogue Valley are waiting to be discovered.

Washington rests at the boundary to Vancouver Canada, with Olympic National Park extending from the ocean beaches to the mountain tops — with a lush rainforest within. Mount Rainier National Park has dense forests, waterfalls and hiking opportunities with the 4,400–meter namesake mountain at its centre. Seattle is known for its natural beauty and is the site of the first Starbucks! Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass among its many popular attractions.
