From the Grand Canyon to the Great Lakes, the snowy peaks of the Rockies to the white sandy beaches of Hawaii, the United States of America is a vast and varied country filled with iconic landmarks, unforgettable landscapes and famously warm hospitality.
One of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, the USA is a diverse collection of incredible cities, awe-inspiring natural wonders and a truly unique culture fashioned by generations of immigrants who have left their mark on the national identity. Whether you’re looking for the big city buzz of the East coast, a night under the stars in Yosemite, or a meandering road trip through Californian wine country, the USA delivers a spectacular and rewarding experience that you’ll never forget.
With more than five million hotel rooms ranging from simple roadside motels to luxurious oceanfront resorts, the world’s third largest country offers something to suit every taste and budget. From a boutique retreat in the forests of rural Vermont to a sophisticated stay in a swanky New York neighbourhood and everything else in-between, America’s accommodation offer will leave you spoilt for choice. And of course once you’ve decided where to stay, the next problem is where to eat?
Once famed only for hamburgers, hotdogs and apple pies, US gastronomy has exploded over the past half century to encompass a seemingly endless array of delicious and distinctive cuisine. From the culinary melting pots of New York, San Francisco and Chicago, to the shrimp trucks and shave ice of Honolulu, the American food and wine scene is thriving, with a fresh new wave of chefs, restaurateurs and sommeliers establishing contemporary culinary communities all across the country. The major cities remain hotbeds of talent and innovation, but there are also some under-the-radar places to consider: Tucson, Arizona and San Antonio, Texas - both granted UNESCO Creative City status on account of their gastronomy - as well as Charleston, South Carolina, are notable new additions to the food and wine lover’s bucket list.
As one of the world’s top five wine producing nations and also the country that consumes more wine than any other, it’s hardly surprising to learn that the USA also has a vibrant, bustling wine scene. The choice of venue is limitless - particularly in the big cities - with everything from upmarket wine bars to characterful tasting lodges and exclusive Michelin star restaurants. So whether you want to try the best homegrown vintages from Napa or Sonoma Valley, sample an obscure Riesling from New York’s Finger Lakes or enjoy a top rated Bordeaux in the dim-lit ambiance of a swanky Manhattan wine bar, America’s wine scene has you covered.
