United States

United States is a vast country home to some amazing cities. Go to New York City, take a stroll down Times Square, climb all the way to the top of the notorious Statue of Liberty, visit the Empire State Building and dabble in arguably some of the best street food in United States. Head on over to Los Angeles, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for celebrities as LA is home to Hollywood. Check out Universal Studios and of course the infamous Disneyland, your family will love you for it! Soak in the gorgeous environment of Aspen, Colorado home to some of the most remarkable skiing and snowboarding mountains such as The Rocky Mountains and Elk Mountains. Then make your way to Las Vegas, the city that never sleeps where your wildest dreams can come true. Dabble in some black jack or go watch an extravagant performance- nothing is too big in Las Vegas. Make sure to also pop out to the glorious Grand Canyon whilst there and take in this natural beauty. You will need a wee break after Vegas so go directly to Florida for some of the country’s most remarkable beaches and dip your feet in either The Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean- the choice is yours! But of course a trip to America would not be complete without a stop in Washington DC to say hello to the president at The White House. Washington is the heart of the US government and is rich in history with breathtaking historical monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument.
