Destinations in United States

  • California


    Beyond the seashores and swimming pools, the Golden State also holds mammoth redwoods, snow-capped peaks and scorched desert. Hop in a convertible and cruise Highway 1 to see it all.
  • Colorado


    Snow bunnies rule the Rocky Mountains in winter, but warmer weather brings mountain bikers, white-water rafters and hikers to towns such as Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge and Telluride.
  • Connecticut


    Lush and leafy, the Connecticut River Valley is a colonial escape from New York City. Weekend visitors boat across the Long Island Sound, ride horses through bucolic Litchfield Hills and visit tiny river towns, including Essex and Old Lime.
  • Florida


    The Sunshine State takes its nickname seriously. Take advantage of Florida's warm weather to strip down and sun in Miami or boat through the marshy Everglades. No matter what you do, start the day with a glass of Florida orange juice.
  • Hawaii


    Set your watch to island time in Hawaii, where locals wake before dawn to catch waves before work on the record-breaking North Shore. The Rainbow State is a paradise of tropical colours, from inky black-sand beaches to the active volcanoes' fiery lava.
  • Illinois


    Once a haven for crooked politicians, Illinois now draws visitors for the towering skyline of Chicago, and the scenic Great Lakes. The state also houses more than 60 state parks and the boyhood home to the least crooked of them all: honest Abe Lincoln.
  • Louisiana


    Baton Rouge may be Louisiana’s capital, but New Orleans is its beating heart, with a Francophile culture of cafes, top-notch cuisine and jazz clubs. The state also holds mossy Civil War-era plantations and strong Creole and Cajun communities.
  • Maine


    No matter the season, from Kennebunkport to Bar Harbor from Acadia to Baxter State Park, this natural wonderland fulfills the state slogan’s promise of 'Vacationland'.
  • Maryland


    Maritime adventure awaits in Maryland. Sail into the bustling Baltimore harbor for a visit to Charm City, or cruise through the Chesapeake to visit the secluded coastal retreats of the Eastern Shore.
  • Massachusetts


    Since the pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts has been a pillar of patriotism. Stroll the freedom trail in Boston, visit the shutter-clad splendour of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard or spot spectacular fall foliage in the Berkshires.
  • Montana


    The Wild West thrives in the vast, openness of Montana. Horse-lovers saddle up for days-long rides through the canyons. Fishermen converge on the bountiful four rivers. And have we mentioned Glacier National Park and iconic Yellowstone?
  • New England

    New England

    Go leaf-peeping amid famous fall foliage, chow down on chowder and lobster rolls and visit lighthouses and historic homes as you explore one of the most storied parts of the United States.
  • New Mexico

    New Mexico

    Talk about a gem in the desert: the land of Georgia O'Keefe has spectacular turquoise mines on a trail that runs from Albuquerque to Santa Fe.
  • New York State

    New York State

    Manhattan alone could keep visitors busy for years with Broadway shows, world-class dining and Madison Avenue shopping. Upstate, Hudson River Valley is a haven for arts and antiques, and the Hamptons are an A-list beach playground.
  • Rhode Island

    Rhode Island

    Though small, Rhode Island packs plenty of adventures for visitors. Sail into Newport to visit the coastal mansions. Providence, home to Brown University, is a scenic New England town with a thriving arts scene.
  • South Carolina

    South Carolina

    Go to South Carolina for the Spanish moss and antebellum architecture, but stay for the innovative culinary scene and miles of beaches in this proud Southern state.
  • Texas


    Everything really is bigger in the Lone Star State. Expect great things from chilli-packed Tex-Mex dishes, one of the country’s best indie music scenes in Austin, and a vast and seemingly endless sprawl through the ranges and out to the Rio Grande.
  • Utah


    Outside Salt Lake City, Utah is a nature-lover’s paradise. The Colorado River burrows through ruddy canyons and opens into Lake Powell. Up in the mountains, resorts like Deer Valley, Park City and Alta lure powder-seekers from around the world.
  • Vermont


    When you think of New England’s picturesque farmhouses, rolling hills and vibrantly coloured autumnal leaves, it’s Vermont you have in mind. With snow-covered mountains in winter and lush forests in summer, there’s a reason to relax here any time of year.
  • Washington DC

    Washington DC

    Proud, historic and unexpectedly alive with greenery, Washington DC is much more than the linchpin of governmental machinery; it’s a cultural hotbed of free museums and monuments.
  • Wyoming


    Open ranges, cowboys and the occasional passing moose help keep Wyoming about as removed from urban sprawl as anywhere in America. Check into a log cabin in Jackson Hole by the majestic Grand Tetons or visit spectacular Yellowstone.
