This multi destination holiday to America offers you the best of the East Coast and West Coast destinations with stays in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Start your holiday in New York, the city that never sleeps, before heading to the West Coast. First San Francisco with its stunning waterfront location, then on to enjoy the year-round sunshine of Los Angeles.
New York City has so many museums, galleries, attractions and events, there is always something to see or do. Spend the day immersed in art at The Met and Guggenheim Museums. Take the Staten Island Ferry from Battery Park and sail past the Statue of Liberty. Ride the elevator to the top of the Empire State Building for breath-taking views over the city, shop downtown in Soho or explore the bohemian streets of the West Village. There is so much to choose from, New York never disappoints!
Your next stop is the waterfront city of San Francisco. Take a cable car from Fisherman’s Wharf, known for its shops, restaurants and waterfront setting to Union Square the 2.6-acre public plaza in downtown San Francisco. Visit Alcatraz Island, now a National Park and find out how it has evolved over the years with an excellent self-guided audio tour. The ferry ride over is also a great opportunity to see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Los Angeles is the final stop on this multi-centre holiday to America. Los Angeles offers a dazzling variety of attractions and world-famous amusements. Experience the thrill and excitement of world class theme parks at Disneyland and Universal Studios. Discover the bright lights and follow the stars on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame.
