Planning a trip to America and looking for new and interesting things to do across the country? We’ve got you covered…
Whether you’re looking into kids holidays or are just planning a trip away as a couple, here’s how to explore the main locations in America in style.
Explore New York from the Air
Sure, the Subway is an experience you have to try at least once while you’re in New York, but wouldn’t the Big Apple be much more interesting to explore via the skies? Helicopter tours of NYC are a popular choice for adventurous tourists and there are plane tours that travel from New York to Niagara Falls to really give you an exciting, authentic experience.
Roll up for a Magical Florida Tour
Skip the Quality Inn on International Drive, when it comes to accommodation, you’re going to be visiting the most magical place on Earth so make the most of it and check in at a Disney hotel!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a strong choice, as you get to look out from your room to see the stunning animals that live on the lodge nearby including giraffes, gazelle and flamingos – the giraffes might even pop their heads in while you’re eating breakfast!
Cycle New Orleans
If you want to get in the thick of things, rent a bicycle in the French Quarter in New Orleans and navigate the history rich streets at your own pace. There are also guided tours if you fancy hearing more about the area but on a sunny day in New Orleans it’s the perfect way to explore the city in style.

Book a Private Tour of LA and See the City Like an A-Lister
No one wants to hang around with a group of sweaty tourists for the day, which is why, if you really want to see the glitz and glamour of L.A in style you should book a private tour. L.A Insider Tours are a great choice, they will pick you up from your hotel and pack a whole day of guided sightseeing in. You can even build your own tour showing you only the things you’re interested in.
The Hollywood experience and Farmers market tour is a popular one that takes you around Hollywood, seeing the stars’ homes and the boulevard and then to the famous farmers market for lunch (where you might see a celeb or two).
Strut Your Stuff in Vegas
Needless to say, Vegas is the place where the cool people come to play and you need to look the part if you’re going to navigate the crowded strips. If walking isn’t your style why not head to the Insanity Ride on the Stratosphere which should give you a good view of the lit up city.
The Insanity Ride isn’t for the faint hearted though – take a look at what happens in this video – as it consists of a massive mechanical arm that extends out over the edge of the tower, 900ft in the air. Oh, and then it spins you around at a force of three ‘G’s and tilts your body down at a 70-degree angle.
