Los Angeles, California.

L.A. is a breathtaking city that attracts travellers from all over the world. And, when you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why that’s the case. It’s a city that offers something to everyone. Whether you’re a tourist who’s looking for a relaxing holiday or an adventurous explorer who wants exciting sightseeing experiences, you’ll find something to satisfy your travel needs in Los Angeles. You should start by visiting Hollywood. The home of the film industry is an intriguing place. You can see the iconic walk of fame on Hollywood Boulevard, but you can also experience stunning natural views atop the Hollywood Hills.

Of course, L.A. has more to it than Hollywood. In fact, Hollywood is quite distinct and separate from the rest of the city. If you head to Venice, by the coast, then you’ll be treated to a very laidback and welcoming atmosphere. You’ll find stylish restaurants and intriguing stalls on the boardwalk. On any given day, you’ll find people performing music, creating sand sculptures, and skateboarding. Obviously, they don’t do all three at once (well, not yet, anyway). Make sure you head to the Santa Monica area, too. It’s only a short walk from Venice. Santa Monica Pier has a great fairground with rides and delicious food, so make sure you check that out. Downtown L.A. is worth exploring, too. Grand Central Market, in particular, has some excellent dining spots. You could even watch live performances in the eating area, so make sure you plan ahead to ensure that you catch a good show whilst you dine.

Las Vegas, Nevada.

It’s very different to Los Angeles, but Las Vegas is a spectacular city in its own way. You could visit it on the same road trip if you fancy travelling from California to Nevada. Heading down Route 66 is certainly an experience in itself. Once you reach the bright lights of Las Vegas, you’ll be spoilt for things to see and do. You should definitely visit the iconic Stratosphere Tower (you can’t miss it) whilst you’re there. You could have a drink on one of the top floors and admire the city from a wonderful vantage point. You could even try bungee-jumping and check out the rollercoaster, too. You might even want to charter a private jet from ACS to take you to the city from another location on your trip. That could provide a nice break from driving if you’ve already had a long and tiring road trip. Las Vegas is exciting for more than just gambling. There are so many other experiences to be had in that bright and vibrant city.

New York City, New York.

New York City is one of the most famous cities in the world, so it makes sense that you should visit this spectacular location if you’re planning on exploring the United States. It might have to be a separate road trip from the one previously mentioned in this article because New York is an eastern state. Still, whether you visit it on your upcoming trip or a trip following that one, you should definitely put NYC at the top of your travel list. There are so many iconic landmarks to see in this impressive city. The Empire State Building is no longer the tallest skyscraper in the city, but it’s one of the most architecturally-spectacular buildings in New York. Plus, it offers amazing views of the entire city. Make sure you visit Central Park and the Statue of Liberty, too. In NYC, there are too many famous locations to count.

Orlando, Florida.

Florida is another fantastic state on the east coast. It might be a great place to visit after New York. Your drive could take you to many interesting places in the eastern states, but the city of Orlando is a location that you should definitely consider putting on your “must-see” list. There are plenty of wonderful cities in Florida; Miami is one of the most popular tourist destinations in America. Yet, Orlando is still a more enticing draw for its incredible theme parks. Disney World, in particular, attracts plenty of travellers from all over the world. No matter your age, everybody wants to capture a piece of the magic in this marvellous theme park.
