What can you see in America in ten days?
Even three months wouldn’t be enough to truly dent the surface of this geographical colossus, but you can make a decent attempt at scratching it in ten days, if you stick to one corner. The east coast, where New York, Boston, Washington DC and Philadelphia are nicely clustered together and handily linked by the excellent Amtrak rail system, is a good shout. As is California’s ridiculously scenic Highway One — rent a car then string out the six-hour drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco with plenty of pitstops and overnights. Similarly, the Texan loop (Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio and Houston) is proving increasingly popular with road trippers, live music lovers and BBQ fanatics alike.
Where should I go on a first-time visit to the US?
Many Britons’ first experience of the US will be the theme parks of Florida or California, which are fantastic for a family trip. For an adult venturing into the Land of the Free for the first time, however, New York City is the most sensible option. It has the shortest, easiest and most frequent flights from the UK (and therefore the best deals), and will feel instantly familiar and welcoming to those raised on a diet of US films and TV shows. It’s also extremely well connected via train, for afternoon excursions into the “real” America of Connecticut and New Jersey, without any need for a travel guide.
What is America most famous for?
This is a list that could go on for eternity. Aside from sports (particularly baseball, basketball and NFL), music (particularly jazz, blues and rock’n’roll), theme parks (particularly Universal Studios, Magic Kingdom and Walt Disney World) and food (particularly hot dogs, hamburgers and fried chicken), there are the big brands, from Apple to Walmart. America is a place so monumentally diverse it’s impossible to distil its nature — and therein lies its beauty. You may think you know the United States, but with every visit comes new surprises.
