The Definitive USA City Trip Guide
When it comes to USA holiday adventures, the country is home to literally hundreds of natural and historic places of interest. From the Deep South to Washington DC, no country in the world is home to such an eclectic mix of histories and cultures, not to mention spectacular national park areas. However, as culturally and scenically spectacular as the outdoors is in the USA, it’s also worth experiencing some of the countries most iconic cities.
Easily the most iconic of cities in the USA, the city originally founded as New Amsterdam isn’t just worth visiting in order to take a trip to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. Rather, New York is the capital in the USA (and some might even say the world) for live theatrical performances. In like manner, a trip to New York isn’t just about yellow taxi cabs and the bustle of one of the world’s busiest cities. Rather, with places like Rockwell Beach, The American Museum of natural History and a plethora of contemporary art galleries, New York is the place to sample the best of the USA both culturally and historically, especially in a limited time frame.
For families with young children and adult thrill seekers alike, Orlando is undoubtedly the best city in the USA when it comes to fun things to do combined with some pretty spectacular natural surrounds. The city to base yourself in in mind of access to theme parks such as Disney World and Universal Studios, Orlando is also just a short drive from the Florida Everglades, The Kennedy Space Center and mile long stretches of white sandy beaches in places like Daytona.
The capital of the Deep South, New Orleans is awash with early European, Latin, African and Caribbean influences. Accumulating throughout the year in carnivals and a unique sense of celebration, these influences also lead to New Orleans being the place in the USA for mouthwatering seafood and unique music offerings. The best way to get a real sense of the city? Make sure to take a trip to the French Quarter and Preservation Hall, the unofficial home of Jazz in the city. Even better, if visiting in February, make sure to experience Mardi Gras!
