United States of America

Destination: San Francisco, USA

Rediscover America

America is a land of great contrasts - from the monumental Grand Canyon and sun-torched deserts to the Pacific Northwest coast; from historical Washington D.C. and electrifying New York City to jazz-filled New Orleans. One thing's for sure, you'll never feel the same after immersing yourself in this timeless land.

With its fascinating, diverse and often controversial history, the United States offers plenty of interest and intrigue for history buffs. As you travel down the East Coast to the Deep South, discover early colonial history, and learn about the fight for independence and struggles for freedom. Visit key Civil War sites, such as Gettysburg, and spend time in Philadelphia, where the nation’s Founding Fathers first gathered. Wherever you visit, you’ll find a nod to key moments in the American story, and will leave with a newfound perspective of this great nation.

 No other country does ‘grand’ and ‘epic’ quite the way the USA does. With a staggering array of national parks, iconic monuments and historic sites, unearthing the essence of this country is easy. Stand in awe before one of the world’s seven natural wonders, the Grand Canyon, learn about Bryce Canyon’s famous ‘hoodoo’ rock formations and marvel at the geysers found in Yellowstone National Park.

Home to country music, jazz and Graceland, the United States plays host to a vibrant music scene. Discover the home of the King of Rock’n’Roll, Elvis Presley, in Memphis, enjoy an exclusive musical performance at the Country Music Hall of Fame and soak up the smooth vibes of New Orleans’ famous jazz clubs – it’s sure to be music to your ears.
