Where to go in the USA, from tropical Hawaii to charming New England

Between the Pacific state of Hawaii and the states of the Atlantic coast lies a vast land of varying cities and landscapes. If you’re a bit of an urbanite, the iconic metropolises of New York, Boston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco are for you. Nature lovers are spoilt for choice wherever you choose to go. The USA’s network of national parks is one of the world’s finest and most extensive and its coasts wouldn’t be out of place on the cover of a magazine. If you like a bit of both you can easily combine a few nights of bright lights with a journey into the wild. In the South you’ll find soulful cities where the rhythms of the blues, jazz and country fill the air, a mighty river best explored on a traditional paddle steamer, and stately old antebellum mansions with their oak-lined avenues.
