USA Holidays

North America Holidays

North America? Nothing to it.

This vast continent is made up of the USA, Canada and Mexico and – enormously diverse – it’s a place that has it all. You can find everything in North America, from golden beaches to snow-capped mountains, empty deserts to crowded cities, brand-new skyscrapers to age-old ruins. It’s as if an entire world has been squashed into one place. Whether you’re looking for natural wonders or man-made landmarks, a holiday to North America has both in spades.

The USA is the land of legends. And your holiday here can be whatever you want it to be – you can stick to one state, or drive through several. The USA’s edges are fringed with beaches and metropolises, while its core is filled with natural phenomena, including the Grand Canyon, the Everglades and the Rockies. Almost every city here has at least one world-famous attraction. Choose an urban jungle and spend a week getting under its skin – eat all the food in sight, shop ‘til you drop and tick off all the iconic landmarks. Or fill your holiday with dozens of experiences in different places. You can take your pick of more than 60 national parks and endless American road trips. Whatever you want, the USA fits the bill.

Canada’s soaring mountain ranges, iceberg-dotted coastlines and enormous forests often outshine its most famous cities, Toronto and Vancouver. You’ll find some of the world’s best skiing here, as well as much of Niagara Falls, a huge slice of the Rockies and several of the world’s largest lakes. But despite its grandeur, Canada’s remarkably easy to explore. You can take road trips and rail journeys across every province. First Nation culture is alive from Quebec to British Columbia. And many national parks are holidays in themselves, filled with beautiful scenery and incredible wildlife.

The continent’s smallest country, Mexico is known for its rich culture, ancient history and spectacular coastlines. Holidays here offer some of the best beaches in North America. But, when you fancy a break from your sun lounger, rich rainforests and Mayan ruins are easy days out. Natural lagoons and dense jungle rub shoulders with luxury resorts on the Yucatan Peninsula. Watersports and waterparks blend with traditional fiesta from Cabo to Cancun. And much-loved Mexican food is best served on its home turf.

What to do in the USA

If you want to cover the USA from coast to coast, you can hire a car or a motorhome and drive Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica. But a holiday to the USA doesn’t have to be super ambitious – you can see as much or as little as you like.

Our experts will help you pick a coast, choose between summer sun or winter adventures, and decide between natural sights or city lights. Plenty of travellers decide to go for a laid-back break and hit Hawaii, where you’ll find big beaches, even bigger volcanoes and some of the world’s best surfing. And sun-soaked California is just as popular, with its famous landmarks, hip cities and blonde sands.

Hotspots like Las Vegas, New York and Washington DC offer fantastic holidays all year round, from festive lights to summery parks. New England is the place to be in autumn, when the famous red, orange and purple fall colours sweep across the forests and national parks. And if you want beautiful beaches, theme parks and glossy cities, nowhere does it better than Florida.

What to do in Canada

The second-largest country on Earth, Canada is home to the greatest of the great outdoors. With more natural wonders than seems fair, this place boasts mountains, glacial lakes and dense forests, as well as beautiful cities and charming towns. Visit Quebec for its romantic old town and winter skiing on Mont Tremblant. Head to Alberta, drop in on Calgary, and then explore magnificent Banff National Park. Or discover the edgy streets of Toronto, just a stone’s throw away from thundering Niagara Falls.

In the east, Nova Scotia is home to the stunning Cabot Trail. While, on the other side of the country, Vancouver Island entices with beaches, wildlife and scenic hikes. For effortless wildlife-watching, ride a train through the Rockies, make for British Columbia – home to over half of Canada’s grizzly bears – or go whale-watching in Hudson Bay. And if you want colourful local life, Montreal has all kinds of festivals in winter, while Ottawa’s the place for traditions like skating on the Rideau Canal and tapping maple syrup.

Beaches in North America

North America’s beaches rival Earth’s most paradisiacal shores, with several regularly topping lists of the world’s best beaches. They also feature a few different seas and a range of styles.

California has its fair share of surfing greats. North Carolina’s beaches offer wild ponies and pirate legends. Waikiki Beach in Honolulu is the legend of legends. Florida’s beaches are perfect for both fashionistas and families. And New England’s shores are piled high with heritage.

But when you want beaches with exquisite resorts and ancient archaeology on the doorstep, make for Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. As well as quaint towns and untamed jungle landscapes, this heavenly area is home to glossy Cancun and Playa del Carmen. You can look forward to mile upon mile of white sands, all sorts of watersports, and some of the calmest waters in the Caribbean.

Food in North America

There are so many good reasons to choose a holiday in North America – but if the sheer variety of food served up across this diverse continent was your number one, few could fault your thinking. The USA didn’t invent street food but, from NYC hot dog carts to Los Angeles food trucks, it’s gone a long way to reinvent the genre. Seafood shacks are southern Florida staples. Nowhere does farmers' markets as well as San Francisco. The Deep South is famous for its incredible barbecue. And, if you want award-winning restaurants and the world’s best vegan spots, San Antonio, Seattle or Portland have you covered.

Canada’s best culinary treats are fantastic, too. Don’t miss Vancouver’s freshly-caught seafood, Beaver Tail Pastries on the hoof in Ottawa, and comforting poutine in Quebec. And, of course, Mexico cooks up a storm with its tacos, quesadillas and enchiladas, served up with salty margaritas. But be warned – once you’ve tried authentic Mexican food, any imitations back home will pale into comparison.
