With The Daily Telegraph naming the USA as the favourite worldwide destination in its 2011 travel awards, taking a trip to the States is something many of us are likely to do in the future. When planning your holiday to the US, you will be faced with a mountain of choice over where to stay – so which are the best cities to visit this year?
1. New York
As The Daily Telegraph named New York as the most favourite city across the planet, it seems only fair to assign it the top spot in our list. The ‘Big Apple’ contains some of America’s best known landmarks – such as the Statue of Liberty and Times Square – and is popular with sight-seers, history buffs and shoppers alike.
2. Las Vegas
With charismatic charm and famous casinos, Las Vegas is routinely labelled a destination which exceeds expectations. A list of the best attractions in the United States on About.com assigned Las Vegas sixth position, with its high class restaurants and shopping, exciting nightlife and world-class entertainment earning it the award.
3. San Francisco
Following Las Vegas in About.com’s top ten list, San Francisco is another American city sure to attract visitors. Alongside the legendary Golden Gate Bridge, other attractions here include a stunning natural landscape and famous regions such as Napa Valley and Silicon Valley.
An article in The Daily Telegraph describes Miami as ‘one of America’s most exciting new cities,’ making it an ideal destination for 2012. As part of Florida, the ‘Sunshine State’ offers beautiful beaches, superb shopping facilities and a truly relaxing experience.
Named as an ideal destination for a winter city break by The Guardian, there is no reason why you couldn’t visit Atlanta in the summer too. Home to the World of Coca Cola theme park, Atlanta also houses the world’s largest aquarium and a host of restaurants and attractions sure to please the most experienced of travellers.
With all these great city break destinations available across America, all you have to do is decide where to go. In all the excitement of booking, don’t forget to look into what documents you will need – such as passports, visas and travel insurance.Back to top
