Everything is big in America - especially the welcome you'll get on arrival. The warmth and kindness extended to foreign visitors can be overwhelming but the beauty of a USA holiday is not just in the hospitality but in the sheer variety of options that exist for the curious traveller. No wonder only ten percent of Americans have a passport. Why bother to travel abroad when there is so much to see at home?
What to expect on your USA holiday
The cities are a great source of cultural interest with excellent museums and art galleries. Move beyond the cities and you find a vast country of mountains, deserts, canyons and grasslands sweeping towards a striking coastline. There are 59 national parks which offer the opportunity to fish, ride horses, go river rafting, track grizzly bears, drive motorbikes, play cowboys or lie on a beach.
Travelling around the USA is easy. The plethora of internal airlines make moving from place to place stress-free. There are hotels of every conceivable standard and style, delicious food and the English accent never fails to win friends.
The USA is frequently ignored as a holiday destination but it never fails to deliver enormous fun.
