USA Holidays

With dramatic, dazzlingly diverse scenery and culture-rich cities pulsing with rhythm, America’s allure for travellers is legendary. Vast as this captivating continent is, with a little insider knowledge from the Turquoise team it’s possible to piece together the ultimate in personalised American holidays. From sipping the perfect pinot at a family-run vineyard in Sonoma to uncovering Miami’s burgeoning art scene during Art Basel, road-tripping through the giant redwoods of the Pacific Coast Highway to immersing yourself in San Francisco’s culinary scene at the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market… a holiday to America offers in-the-know travellers the opportunity to tick off long list of bucket-list life experiences.

CALIFORNIA HOLIDAYS

More than any other American state, California richly rewards visitors with an unrivalled variety of travel memories. There’s the jaw-droppingly beautiful scenery of Yosemite, Death Valley and the Pacific Coast Highway, culture-dense cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, laidback surf towns, charming world-class vineyards and luxurious desert hideaways in between.

NEW YORK HOLIDAYS

Simply one of the world's greatest city destinations, New York works her magic on every traveller and you'll leave plotting a return visit. Whether you crave mind-blowing art, inspiring street style, iconic skyline views or simply the world's best pastrami bagel, New York has it all. The best bit? It's the perfect high-energy, culture-crammed stopover en route to a week of R&R on an idyllic Caribbean beach.

MIAMI HOLIDAYS

Miami has long been loved for her golden beaches, fun-loving spirit and indulgent hotels. Our favourite part is the city's prime position as a stopover to more exotically-placed sun loungers on the Caribbean islands of Turks & Caicos, St Kitts & Nevis, Barbados and the British Virgin Islands. Miami reigns supreme as a cultural heavyweight city, with world-class galleries, museums and art fairs.

SAN FRANCISCO HOLIDAYS

California's northernmost major city has always been a cultural hotbed, but this gorgeous coastal metropolis now boasts one of the most innovative and exciting culinary scenes on the planet. Best enjoyed as part of a longer journey through California, combine San Francisco with the wine regions of Sonoma and Napa Valley, Yosemite National Park or a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway to Los Angeles, the city of the stars.

LOS ANGELES HOLIDAYS

LA looms large in the imagination of every culture-loving traveller, and whether being enjoyed as part of a California itinerary or a quick stopover it's possible to immerse yourself in the glamour of Golden Age Hollywood, taste the beach life of Santa Monica and delve into the pioneering culinary, brewing and distilling scene in the resurgent downtown area. For travellers bound for the South Pacific islands of Fiji, Tahiti and the Cooks, LA is a must-do stopover to break the journey. REASONS TO VISIT 1. American urbanites take mealtimes seriously, so arrive hungry. With Manhattan's iconic delis, San Francisco's Farmer's Market, Miami's Cuban shacks and the luxurious beach bars lining the starry coast of Malibu, you have some memorable eating to do. 2. The sheer diversity of America’s natural scenery will take even the most intrepid traveller’s breath away. Expect rugged cliffs, swathes of golden sand, craggy snow-topped mountains, lush ancient forest and dramatic desert moonscapes. 3. Listening to jazz, watching film noir and reading Steinbeck will never be the same again after you’ve visited San Francisco, Hollywood and Big Sur respectively. Even after you unpack your bags after the trip of a lifetime, America lives on in your cultural imagination.
