USA: 1 Week, 5 Options: Which Holiday Spot Will It Be?

USA: 1 Week, 5 Options: Which Holiday Spot Will It Be?

When you only get one week matched up to go on holiday as a family, with friends, or even as a couple, you can often find yourself with a tough decision to make. If you live in the US and you want to experience a different state, or if you’ve always wanted to visit and do a real US holiday, not only do you have 50 states to choose from, you have a few different kinds of holidays to take into consideration. To help you out and make that choice a little easier, here are five types of holiday and recommendations for each.

Ski Resort

Even if you ski in Europe, there’s nothing quite like the US slopes. In each state you visit, you get a slightly different vibe. If you want to experience the best of the best, head to Colorado. Not only is there a huge range of incredible resorts to choose from, including the infamous Aspen, but you can find a level of ski to suit your party too. Vail is often a good choice for first-time visitors as it’s one of the biggest resorts and has shopping, culture, and great equipment, like Vista Bahn Ski Rentals, to accommodate your needs.

Beach Holiday

If you love nothing more than laying in the sun for a week and enjoying the warm weather, you’re gong to want to head to the south of the US and find yourself a sunny state. You could head to California, but we’d recommend Florida is you’re visiting as a family. Not only do you have the option of visiting the parks, but you’ve got a wealth of beachside resorts to choose from too – making it the ideal destination to do a bit of both.

When the little adventurer in you calls, you can only think about one thing – getting out there and creating new experiences. While they are a wide range of adventure holidays in the US and even Canada, you’re going to need to narrow down your requirements before you decide. You’ve got the Grand Canyon to see in Arizona, and there’s also Yosemite in California to consider. Depending on whether you want to hike or raft, bike or sail, you’ve got a whole bunch of natural attractions to choose from.

City Break

Sometimes, you just want to get out and about in a city. If you’ve yet to see New York, put it straight to the top of your hit-list. With a wealth of sightseeing and attractions to choose from, you’ve got a lot to get done. But that’s not all. Whether you want to indulge in the shopping scene and spend your time in restaurants, or get out and see the boroughs and even hit a sports game or two, New York offers it all.

Country Retreat

Maybe you’re looking for an authentic country experience? The US also has you covered here. Whether you want to stay close to home, if you live in the US of course, or head across the country to a enjoy an entirely different scene, you can find some of the coziest retreats in Pennsylvania, Montana and even Massachusetts to name a few. Pick a state, book a cabin and enjoy a bit of time out with just you and your quaint picture-perfect surroundings.
