As the third-largest country in the world, it’s hard to find a more varied landscape than the United States of America. From the glaciers of Alaska to the deserts of Arizona, the sun-soaked beaches of California, Florida and Hawaii, to the majestic Rocky Mountains, travel in the USA is nothing short of spectacular.
If you’ve got a set of wheels, cruise across the country on the legendary Route 66 and stop off in Amarillo for a traditional steak. Try your lucky hand in the casinos of Las Vegas, learn America’s history at the Museum of the Cherokee Indian in North Carolina, or witness the staggering views of the Grand Canyon.
Whatever your scene, you can find it in America – and plenty more besides…
