Travel Tips

Best US Vacation Spots

Plan a perfect getaway to the best vacation spots in the US.

New York
New York is true to its roots and remains a city of immigrants with inspiring architecture and a thriving arts scene. Take in a show on Broadway, shop in SoHo, spend a lazy day in Central Park and explore the city’s diverse neighborhoods.
Orlando
There’s fun around every corner in Orlando with wild roller coasters, twisting waterslides and theme-park fun. Mickey Mouse certainly plays a starring role in the festivities, but there’s plenty of magic beyond the realm of Disney.
Maui
Maui is the only Hawaiian island to be named after a demigod, and that comes as no surprise to anyone who’s been here; this tropical escape is indeed heavenly. Visitors seeking a blend of Hawaiian hospitality and culture in an upscale environment will revel in the many fine points of Wailea beach with sprawling resorts, water activities, national parks and even pods of humpback whales. The beach is laid out in golden crescents bordering warm, gentle waters perfect for swimming.
Las Vegas
Gambling, all-night partying and excess are all synonymous with Las Vegas. But beyond the craps table, Sin City turns mundane events -- like having dinner, attending a show or finding a hotel room -- into extreme mind-blowing experiences. Come for the gambling, or visit for the swanky shopping, flashy entertainment, super pools and high-class fun.
Grand Canyon
Standing alongside the rim, soaking in the vast cliffs and colors, and finally recognizing nature's immense power over humankind has helped put the lives of countless visitors into perspective at Grand Canyon National Park. The landscape is rugged and raw; the jagged canyon walls are striped with rainbows of ever-changing mineral colors along the North and South Rims.
