The Grand Canyon

Sheer Beauty
Definitely one of the grandest natural wonders you’ll ever see, the Grand Canyon is an incredible 277 miles long and one mile deep. To marvel at the sheer scale of the canyon, there are numerous vantage points, plus the ability to hike down it (just remember you’ve got to walk back up!), or see it from above in a helicopter.

Las Vegas

Las Vegas

An adult’s playground

While you can fly there, nothing quite compares to driving through the desert and into the brightly lit strip of Las Vegas (in a convertible for full effect). Famed for its hangovers and brat pack, the adult playground is everything and anything but boring. Embrace the surreal and enjoy a famous circus show one minute and a roller coaster the next; all taking place in casinos of course!

San Francisco

San Francisco

The birthplace of counter culture

The seaside Californian town draws travellers near and wide with its iconic Golden Gate bridge (which is actually orange) and creative culture. To see it in all its splendour, explore the historic Haight-Ashbury district, enjoy a Bridge to Bridge Harbour Cruise, visit the surrounding wineries and don’t miss an eery visit to Alacatraz Island.

Los Angeles

City of Angeles

Many people are drawn to LA for the bright lights of Hollywood, but it’s not the only thing worth visiting for. Hire a car and explore the city beyond the walk of fame and you’ll find a relaxing city of palm tree lined beaches, rolling hills and yoga-culture. And, when you’re in need of a thrill, embrace your big-kid side with a visit to Disneyland and Universal Studios.
