The sheer size of the United States makes it the kind of place that you could spend a lifetime exploring. It's roughly 38 times the size of the UK, and each state has a unique personality, meaning that America really does have it all: dazzling metropolises, remote wildernesses, baking deserts, snowy mountains, iconic landmarks and ghost towns.

The question is: where do you start? The choice is all yours: to get you started, Thomas Cook fly to show-stopping Las Vegas, unforgettable New York, chic Miami and family-friendly Orlando, all great jumping-off points for exploring further afield.

More about USA

America’s vast landscape means it’s almost like tens of countries in one. If you’re looking for a city break, it doesn’t come much more exciting than iconic New York City, with its soaring skyscrapers and beeping yellow cabs swarming like bees around the glorious Central Park.

Alternatively, beach breaks in Florida and Miami are equally beautiful but with a totally different flair, with Miami’s attitude and party-loving vibes contrasting deeply with Orlando’s laid-back family vibe. In Vegas, everyone’s a winner, with dazzling spectacles to impress even the most seasoned traveller, both inside the casinos and out.
