1. New York
New York City is unlike any other city in the world and must be experienced to fully understand and appreciate its value. It’s a city that is constantly featured in the TV shows and movies we watch, which is why when you visit for the first time, you feel like you’re on a set! With famous landmarks at every turn, you can visit the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, Central Park, Times Square, the High Line, and so much more.
So while you are sightseeing by day, the best thing you could do at night is to see a show on Broadway. Or, if musicals aren’t your scene, New York will never be short of offering entertainment and fantastic bars and restaurants. With almost too much to do and see, this is a city that you will visit time and time again.
If you don’t want to spend time in the tourist attractions in New York City, the state of New York has so much more to offer. One of the most famous waterfalls in the world, Niagara Falls, is somewhere you’ll want to see when you’re in the area. You can book a walking tour or take a boat trip if you’re feeling brave! With other natural attractions such as Lake George, Fire Island, and Lake Placid – you don’t need to spend too much time in the city if you prefer to be outdoors!
2. California, The Golden State
The Golden State has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Fantastic weather, great beaches, vineyards, and more. It is also known as ‘the Grape State’ as California produces almost 90% of the nation’s wine. Need we say more?
California is also home to some stunning landscapes, with sun-drenched coastlines and deserts. Visit Yosemite National Park, Big Bear, and many more. If you want something a bit spookier – don’t miss the chance to walk the eerie corridors of the notorious Alcatraz island prison. It’s unforgettable!
Florida is a state known to be where all the fun is happening. That is why over 90 million tourists visit this state every year. Known as the Sunshine State, it is full of family-friendly things to do, from beaches and water parks to theme parks. On top of that, it has over 230 days of sunshine a year!
We couldn’t mention Florida without talking about Orlando, home to the Disney World Resort and Magic Kingdom – undoubtedly the most popular theme park in the world. It also comes with Universal Studios, packed with golf courses, shopping malls, and more.
Florida is also the home to Miami, a city known for its white sandy beaches, resorts, and diving activities.
Some people might not realize that Florida is home to over 7000 lakes and has more golf courses than any other US state. Perfect for a game; it doesn’t hurt that it is also the flattest state in the United States!
Sometimes known as the Centennial State, Colorado is the highest state through elevation in the whole of the United States. You know you are in Colorado when you can see beautiful peaks, incredible canyons, lots of forests, and gorgeous rivers. Most of the attractions in Colorado are nature-based, but you can also visit the capital city of Denver, which has a great nightlife scene and lots of craft breweries.
More claims to Colorado’s fame are that it is home to the largest hot spring pool in the world, Earth’s deepest hot spring, and the largest flat-top mountain in the world. Check out all those records!
One of the key reasons Colorado sees a lot of tourists all year round is thanks to its all-year skiing experiences. Colorado is home to many ski resorts, including popular ones like Vail and Aspen. The state’s frequent snowstorms mean that there is so much fresh snow for snowboarding and skiing. The best time of year that we would recommend is definitely around March and February time!
Did you know that the state of Hawaii is the longest island chain in the entire world? It is so long that it even has its own time zone. It is the only state in the US that is made up of just islands. Although there are over 130 islands in Hawaii, only seven are inhabited. The rest are used purely for exploring, like helicopter rides, beach days, and trekking around waterfalls.
If you are a foodie, you will also love Hawaii. It is the only state in the United States that grows its own coffee and is also home to more than a third of the world’s pineapples. With some tasty food, a nice cup of coffee, and too much to explore – it is easy to fall in love with Hawaii.
