Explore all that the USA has to offer!

With its diverse regions and lively cities the USA has something for everybody. With many bucket list attractions and amazing landscapes it is no wonder that millions visit its states annually. It would be hard to list all those places which are worth to visit in the country but we have selected some states below to inspire you with holiday ideas.

California

Few states, if any, have more things to see and do than California. With its major metropolitan cities, majestic mountains, legendary national parks, trailblazing theme parks and, of course, remarkable ocean views, the sunshine state is best sampled in week-sized chunks. In all, California can be separated into 12 regions, each with its own distinct natural beauty and exciting adventures.

Head to San Diego for a slice of surf culture, a romantic dinner or a visit to one whale of a theme park. Head to Lake Tahoe and sample more snow-covered terrain than any other U.S. destination. Or head to Palm Springs, home of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic and the LG Skins Game, for a golf and spa holiday experience like no other. And when you’re done, you’ll realize you’ve barely scratched the surface of ways to explore the nation’s third largest state – and the No. 1 state for tourism.

Florida

From Florida’s “Space Coast” to the Gulf of Mexico, holidayers will find a little bit of everything their hearts desire: exclusive shopping, world class golfing, bustling beaches and warm ocean breezes, to name a few.
Along the west coast lies the Tampa Bay area, where residents and guests alike, it seems, are required to be outdoors. Tampa was recently named the fifth best outdoor city by Forbes, thanks to its clean air, vast parks and perpetually sunny weather.
Sanibel Island’s beaches are well known for their unspoiled beauty, tranquility and colorful seashells deposited daily by Gulf waters. Visitors to Sanibel are more apt to sunbathe, take a sunset stroll along the sugary sands – or perform the famous shell-hunting ritual that has come to be known the “Sanibel Stoop.”
Between the do-everything city of Fort Lauderdale and exclusive Palm Beach, lies culturally diverse Delray Beach, where holidayers can follow a day at the beach or tennis center with a night downtown among the galleries, restaurants and shows.
Farther south, sandwiched between the Atlantic and the Gulf, sits incomparable Key West. In the Keys, scuba divers, eccentric artists, anglers and partygoers all peacefully coexist, and it appears as if just about all of them gather nightly to view the magnificent sunsets. Although the Keys reside in the continental United States’ southernmost region, ocean breezes keep temperatures pleasant, enticing more than 1 million visitors each year to come and join the fun.

Arizona

The seasons blend into perpetually warm and sunny days here in the heart of the Desert Southwest, where golfers, explorers, power shoppers and sightseers know there’s never a bad time for making memories that last a lifetime.
Oases of holiday resorts dot the landscape, offering championship courses that challenge and inspire golfers regardless of skill level. Spas, meanwhile, conjure the healing powers of native desert plants to provide signature treatments that regenerate the body and nourish the soul.
Every area of this grand state is unique and special in its own way. With high-end retailers such as Tiffany’s, Gucci and Cartier – and more spas per capita than any other U.S. city – historic Scottsdale is a shopper’s paradise and a spa lover’s dream. There may be no better place to indulge yourself, or, as more than a third of the teams in the Major League have discovered, no better setting for spring baseball. 
Venture beyond the diamond to Sedona, and you’ll discover a surrounding landscape that includes ancient rock art, pueblo ruins and incomparable desert mountain views. We are your source for Arizona Holiday resorts.
While the rest of Arizona relishes the 365-day-a-year tee time, fresh powder awaits skiers and snowboarders atop Flagstaff’s San Francisco Peaks. From here, day trips to Grand Canyon National Park are possible.

New England

From the smell of the salty ocean air to the sweet summer breezes, New England has it all. Whether you prefer an active holiday full of sailing, skiing and cycling, or you want a leisurely getaway rich with history and culture, you’re sure to find more than you even imagined.
Romantic couples or families with children are equally entertained with New England holidays – at any time of year. In this part of the country, there are four distinct seasons, each bringing new scenery and a new set of activities.
Soak in the rays at a pristine beach or scream with delight on an amusement park ride. Take a bicycle ride down a leaf-strewn lane or take a drive along the famous Cape Cod seashore. Ski perfect mountain slopes or visit one of the region’s many historic sites. Sample an array of vintages at a top-notch winery or spot a humpback whale on a relaxing cruise.
At any time of year, indulge in the freshest seafood anywhere in the country, served at some of the best restaurants in the country.
With its natural beauty, deep cultural significance and myriad ways to spend your free time, you’ll want to come back to New England again and again.

Texas

People in Texas love their football. That much is true. But they love the great outdoors just the same. 
Whether your passion is golfing, hiking, hunting, boating, deep-sea fishing – or starlight shows reserved only for the widest of open spaces – then a Texas holiday should be on your next destination list. Catch a trophy bass on Sam Rayburn Reservoir, a beautiful, 114,000-acre stretch of clear, fresh water that serves as a regular stop on the pro anglers’ tour. Discover tranquility – and some of the finest golfing in the Southwest – just an hour north of Houston at Lake Conroe.
Explore the Texas Piney Woods at Lake Palestine, by boat, by foot or on an authentic steam train. Or head south to Texas’ southernmost city, Brownsville, which is home to historic U.S.-Mexico battles and a hop-skip-and-a-jump from the beaches of beautiful South Padre Island.
From Hill Country lakes to national forest trails to sandy Gulf Coast shores, your Texas holiday will have a little bit of everything for those who want to commune with Mother Nature.

Nevada

A Nevada holiday is so much more than a drive through the desert. A diverse climate offers plentiful sunny days that are popular with outdoor sports enthusiasts, but heavy winter snowfall in the mountains make Nevada a winter sports paradise as well. In this wild, beautiful state, visit historic Old West mining towns, enjoy guest ranches offering the cowboy lifestyle, or see a star-studded show and play the slot machines.
Las Vegas is world-famous for its round-the-clock neon lights, dining and, of course, world-famous casino entertainment. When it’s time to move beyond The Strip, travel 446 miles southeast to Reno. Nestled against the Sierra Nevada foothills, Reno offers a wide array of shopping, distinctive dining and year-round outdoor sports from skiing to golf and everything in between.

Tenerife

El Marques, Tenerife

As familiar as it is warm, there’s no surprise why Tenerife remains a firm favourite with British holidaymakers for both summer and winter getaways. With beaches galore, from golden sands with every amenity in Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos, to the coves filled with black volcanic sand in Playa de la Arena and Puerto de la Cruz, it’s no wonder holidays centre around the beach here. But if you dig a little deeper you’ll find that there is so much more to discover. At the island’s heart you’ll find the towering volcano of Mount Teide.

Florida

There really is something for everyone in this holiday capital of the world. If it’s a thrill-a-minute family holiday you’re after, Orlando should be at the top of your list, being home to the world’s greatest theme parks. This is just one reason to visit the Sunshine State. If you’re a nature lover, explore the sub-tropical waterways of the Everglades National Park, and if shopping is your hunting ground you won’t be disappointed. Whether it’s a pair of Mickey Mouse ears or that designer handbag at a fraction of the price, shops are aplenty.

With sandy beaches, volcanic landscapes and quirky architecture, Lanzarote is one of the Canary Islands’ biggest hitters.

Make Timanfaya National Park your first port of call. The moon-like landscape here is made up of around 100 volcanic craters known as the Fire Mountains – pour water into one of the boreholes and it’s vapourised in seconds. On the east coast, Jameos del Agua and the Madeira Botanical Garden offer more examples of Manrique’s fascinating use of the island’s natural resources.
