USA ROAD TRIPS? TICK.

With its staggering scenery and easy-to-navigate highways, the USA was made for road trips. From dusty deserts and scenic lakes, to ancient forests and sprawling cities, this varied country has so much to see. And, with our USA self-drive tours, you’ll have total freedom to explore at your own pace. You simply choose your ideal vehicle – we’ve got everything from campervans to convertibles – and your dream route, and off you go. Our experts will help you design the perfect itinerary. Whether you’re planning to drive a well-trodden route or you’re eager to get off the beaten track, a USA road trip is the ultimate adventure.

Thanks to the country’s diversity, our USA self-drive tours cover every kind of landscape imaginable. You could start your trip in Las Vegas, discover the Mojave Desert and Death Valley, then continue on to California’s lush national parks and balmy beaches. Or you could kick off your holiday with a few days in New York, before travelling north to see Boston and Niagara Falls. Perhaps you’d like to spend two weeks driving across Florida? From Miami’s beaches, to Orlando’s world-class theme parks, to the luscious Everglades, the Sunshine State has something for everyone.

The best thing about our USA self-drive tours is the variety. Even if you’ve travelled to America a few times, there’s always something new to see. Naturally, you’ll be able to visit famous cities – but it’s the lesser-known places and hidden gems in-between which are really special. So what are you waiting for? Ask our travel specialists about our self-drive tours, and start planning your great American road trip today.

Coast to coast

The joy of our USA self-drive tours is the ability to see so many places in one holiday. But if you really want to make the most of your time in the States, our coast-to-coast itineraries are the very best USA road trips.
On our three-week Great American Road Trip, you’ll drive from east to west through 13 states. This once-in-a-lifetime journey starts in New York, where you can see world-famous landmarks like Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building. Then you’ll continue on to the USA’s capital, Washington DC, before heading north to cross the Canadian border to see Niagara Falls.

In your second week, you’ll be able to visit lively cities like Chicago and Detroit, as well as some of the USA’s natural wonders. You can admire Mount Rushmore and explore Yellowstone National Park. Driving west, you’ll be able to have a flutter in Las Vegas before reaching California. Here, you can discover glittering Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, before finishing up in San Francisco. This self-drive tour across the USA is truly unforgettable.

National Parks

America is famous for its stunning scenery, so it’s only right that our USA self-drive tours allow you to discover some of the country’s amazing national parks.

Why not take a look at our National Parks Explorer itinerary? Starting in Las Vegas, this 10-day road trip takes you over the state border into Utah, where you can marvel at the red rocks of Bryce Canyon National Park and tackle a variety of walking trails in Zion National Park. And you can see the shimmering waters of Lake Powell, where you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing sunset sailing.

But the highlight of this itinerary is sure to be the Grand Canyon. You’ll have a whole day to explore this vast crater, which covers a whopping 1,900 square miles – that’s nearly twice the size of Dorset. You can go hiking and learn about the culture of the Havasupai and Hualapai Native Americans who call this place home. Next, you’ll continue on to Sedona and Lake Havasu, before returning to Las Vegas for one final night of fun.

Florida road trips

Want to drive through Florida in a convertible, feeling the sun on your face? Well, our Sunshine Trails itinerary is the perfect choice for you. This jam-packed 13-day road trip takes in a number of must-see sites, from beautiful beaches to national parks to vibrant cities.

After a day in Miami, you’ll travel down to the picture-perfect Florida Keys, driving across the incredible Overseas Highway to Key West and Key Largo. Then it’s on to the Everglades National Park – where you can search for alligators – and the stylish town of Naples, which boasts fantastic dining, shopping and beaches.

Drive on to Sarasota and Crystal River, where you’ll be able to see gentle manatees in the wild. And, of course, no Florida self-drive tour would be complete without a visit to Orlando. You’ll have three days in the ‘Theme Park Capital of the World’ so you can ride the rollercoasters to your heart’s content.

Best time to visit the USA

The best time for your USA self-drive tour very much depends on where you want to go. Each state’s climate is slightly different but, in general, spring and autumn are fresh and pleasant. Spring is a fantastic time to visit California or Florida, as you’ll be able to explore the cities and make the most of the beaches, before the intense summer heat arrives. The East Coast is lovely at this time of year, too – but autumn is also a great time to go, as you can see New England’s fiery foliage.

Depending on your route, winter can be a tricky time for a road trip in the USA. Some mountainous national parks – like Yellowstone and Yosemite – may be closed if there’s heavy snow. At the other end of the spectrum, summer is often very hot and humid. So this might not be the best time to explore southern states, like Florida and Tennessee. Even large coastal cities – like New York and Los Angeles – can be stifling in summer. If you’re not sure when to go on your USA self-drive tour, please speak to our experts.
