The United States of America is an incredibly diverse country – its culture moulded over centuries by the millions of people from a huge number of nations who have settled there to seek a better life, and no more so than those found in its fast-paced cities.
Our featured luxury hotels and resorts are located in some of the greatest cities on the east and west coasts – such as Boston, Seattle, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles – with a selection found inland in Las Vegas and Chicago. A perfect end or beginning to a multi-centre USA holiday, each offers opportunities for designer shopping and visiting world-famous landmarks and museums, plus dining at some of the world’s greatest restaurants. In New York, you can enjoy flexing your credit card in Manhattan’s famous shopping streets, take a walk in leafy Central Park, spend a couple of hours at a hit Broadway show, visit a few of the many art galleries and museums that attract the hottest exhibitions – The Frick Museum, MOMA and The Guggenheim being three of the best, not forgetting to seek out the huge number of iconic landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, Grand Central Terminal and Wall Street. On the east coast, undulating San Francisco has a fascinating history and its fair share of iconic attractions, such as Alcatraz, Lombard Street, the cable-cars and Golden Gate Bridge, plus splendid parks, museums, designer shopping at Union Square and historically important districts, such as Haight-Ashbury (home of the 1960s Psychedelic revolution), bustling China Town and Nob Hill, an affluent area replete with upscale restaurants and fine-looking mansions. Visit San Francisco as part of a longer holiday including Napa Valley, or a driving holiday along the Californian coast down to Los Angeles and San Diego. By contrast, Miami is a glamorous Art Deco gem nuanced with an exciting Latino vibe. Head here for a little bit of everything: designer shopping, fancy restaurants and world-famous nightclubs juxtaposing with natural attractions such as Miami Beach, Key Biscayne and Everglades National Park.
