United States of America
The USA stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Arctic Ocean to the Caribbean covering no less than eight time zones. In between it ranges from tundra to tropics, from rainforest to desert, from mountain summits thousands of feet above sea level to salt lakes hundreds of feet below. It has something to offer everyone whether relaxation, rejuvenation or adventure is on your mind.
So let Revere Travel help you design the holiday to suit you, whether you're looking for a honeymoon or travelling with the family, whether you want to stay in a city hotel for a long weekend or combine a city hotel with a stay in a resort either in the USA or the surrounding region.
The Atlantic or East coast offers an insight in to the historic beginnings of the country we now love, to the modern buzz of Broadway shows and some of the best shopping in the world. New England, comprising Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, still has close geographical and cultural ties to the UK but with a flavour all its own. It is no wonder that so many Britons visit each year lapping up the charming chocolate-box villages, welcoming locals, abundant local produce and scenery. The region's inland hills, forests and lakes are a stunning year-round adventure playground, but perhaps especially in October, when the trees are decked with the most outrageous Fall foliage colours. The coast makes a great summer destination for families and couples, with long warm days, music festivals, spanking fresh seafood and excellent sailing conditions, and there is always a deserted beach to discover and call your own for a few hours. New York is of course one of Americas top destinations. Easy to navigate and with so many attractions within a convenient radius, from its world-famous landmarks such as the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty to the essential experiences of taking in a show on Broadway or a romantic horse-drawn cab ride through Central Park. As far as shopping goes, the designer boutiques of Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue are a 'must'. 4 hours south, down the i-95 you find Americas capital, Washington DC. Most of the iconic buildings you will recognised encompass The National Mall, this is a large open park in downtown Washington between the Lincoln Memorial and the United States Capitol. Given its prominence, the mall is often the location of political protests, concerts, festivals, and presidential inaugurations. The Washington Monument and the Jefferson Pier are near the center of the mall, south of the White House. Washington DC is also renowned for the vast array of free museums thanks to the Smithsonian Institution, with some of the best collections in the world. The most visited of the Smithsonian museums in 2012 was the National Museum of Natural History on the National Mall. Other Smithsonian Institution museums and galleries on the mall are: the National Air and Space Museum; the National Museum of African Art; the National Museum of American History; the National Museum of the American Indian.
The Gulf or South coast offers all the wonders of Florida, including anything from relaxing on miles of palm-fringed beaches of Florida’s Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, seeing your children’s faces light up at Walt Disney World, wondering at the technology of space travel at Cape Canaveral, or people-watching as you sip cocktails in cool and glitzy Miami, there is a wealth of natural attractions. Take an airboat ride through the saw grass and cypress trees of the Everglades, swim with manatees at Crystal River or with dolphins at Marathon Key, and enjoy fabulous snorkeling at Key Largo. Alternatively why not try some of the South’s other wonders; party in New Orleans, the home of jazz and cool cocktails on sultry summer days; get on down in the great blues and country music meccas of Nashville and Memphis in Tennessee; uncover the colonial gems of Richmond and Williamsburg; or just unwind in historic Charleston or Savannah.
The Pacific or West coast offers a diverse range of destinations, from the bright lights and casinos of Las Vegas, glitz and glamor of Los Angeles to the more Bohemian city of San Francisco or the friendly laid back volcanic Hawaiian Islands. Los Angeles vast, but offers some of America’s iconic locations such as being the home of Disneyland, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Sunset Boulevard, there is so much to see and do in and around the city of Los Angeles that it's hard to know where to begin. Go shopping down Rodeo Drive, pay a visit to the famous sign perched high up in the Hollywood Hills or to the Hollywood Walk of Fame where stars are immortalised with bronze star-plaques. Visit Universal Studios and Disneyland or head down to bustling Venice Beach. One thing is for sure with Las Vegas, it will never let you down when it comes to new and exciting experiences and opportunities. Along with the draw of the giant hotels and casinos there is also Americas largest indoor theme park awaiting you, indoor skydiving, a variety of museums and galleries. If the sight of Vegas is not wow enough why not take a night time helicopter flight up the strip, or take a scenic flight over the Grand Canyon, Nevada Desert, Colorado River and Hoover Dam, both highly recommended by Revere Travel. The Hawaii seen in hundreds movies, of verdant rainforests, lofty volcanoes, palm-fringed lagoons, warrior canoes and cascading waterfalls does still exist, not forgetting those beaches, caressed by ceaseless surf. Nowhere on earth is quite like these sun-drenched islands in the middle of the Pacific. The possibilities for adventure, and relaxation, are seemingly infinite. Learn to surf, go whale watching, see lava eruptions on Kilauea, take a trail ride with the paniolos, Hawaii’s very own cowboys, or take a thrilling helicopter ride along the spectacular Napali coast, surely the world’s greatest scenic flight. Alternatively, if you’re looking for that perfect beach give us a call at Revere Travel and we’ll help you get the very most out of your time in Hawaii.
