6 Bucket List USA Destinations

They are the icons on every visitors wish list and these sights and must do experiences epitomise all that is great about a USA holiday.

Everyone is different though and here at the USA Holiday Company we deliver tailor-made holidays to America exactly the way you want. For some it may be eating Key Lime Pie in a beachfront restaurant in Florida or marvelling at the amazing natural spectacles and for others it may be sipping a glass of white in Sonoma, California or riding the big coasters at the numerous theme parks of Orlando. Whatever your style though you will want to tick off these bucket list destinations on your next holiday to America in 2019.

Canyon Fly & Float

Take this half day excursion from Las Vegas by helicopter and fly into the Grand Canyon. Drop over the edge and fly along the canyon floor before landing and then taking a scenic boat ride along the Colorado River. This is all followed by a BBQ lunch with the Hualapai Native Americans. The Grand Canyon is a must visit destination on any USA holiday.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans

Two weeks before Shrove Tuesday every year, New Orleans turns into a series of street parties as it goes Mardi Gras mad. Marching bands & themed floats parade through the French Quarters streets during this colourful spectacle.

You need to book your hotel early though if you want to tick this off your bucket list of USA destinations as it gets very busy. The USA Holiday Co has some great early bird rates so give us a call and get booked in.

Wet & Wild

One of the worlds natural wonders, Niagara Falls has to be up there on everyone's USA bucket list destinations to visit. The new indoor multimedia 'World Changed Here' pavilion teaches you all about the Falls in the US side. From here you pout on your poncho and take the lift down 175ft to the Cave of the Winds, where wooden walkways take you within feet of the thundering Bridal Veil Falls on the aptly named Hurricane Deck.

Cycle the Golden Gate

You've seen it in the movies, now its your turn to get up close and personal with the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Take this 3 hour cycle tour and watch the sun go down over the Pacific as you cycle across it. Simply a jaw dropping experience! You also get to cycle past the cities famous piers, and Presidio Park. If 3 hours on a bike sounds like too much hard work for you why not opt for the short cycle over the bridge, spend the day in Sausalito and return back to San Francisco on the ferry by Alcatraz. Whichever ever way you do it, the cycling across is worthy of bucket list status

Summer Like the Stars

Why not get away from the well trodden tourist hot spots of a USA summer holiday and follow in the footsteps of reality TV stars like the Real Housewives of New York. Why not rent a home or stay in a cottage style hotel in the Hamptons, Long Island, New York a favoured getaway destination of the affluent and famous. Combine this with a few days in New York itself and you have the perfect USA holiday in 2019.

Take Flight in North Carolina

North Carolina is not the first place visitors to America think of as a holiday destination but it is well worth the trip in our opinion. On the Atlantic coast, this state has some lovely towns and villages to explore but one of the main attractions is the Wright Bros National Memorial. Here you can learn about How Wilbur & Orville found the solutions to lift and propulsion and changed the world of travel forever. The wind swept dunes of of Kitty Hawk in North Carolina were perfect for the take off of the worlds first powered flights in 1903! We suggest combining this with a road trip around the area and we can suggest routes and accommodation to make a perfect USA holiday.
