For those who like to travel, you may have a preference for Asia or Europe, but the United States has a lot to offer travellers of all ages. This is a big country, and each state is unique with different weather, culture, scenery, and people.
Denver, Colorado is a great jumping off point in the winter for anyone who wants to go skiing or snowboarding. Located close to Vail, Aspen, and multiple other ski resorts that are family friendly, you’ll be able to enroll in ski school if you’re learning or hit the slopes if you’re an expert. The city itself is also fun for a few days, with great cafes and restaurants and a community of people who love the outdoors.
If you’re planning a trip to the states, skipping New York City would be a big mistake. Whether you plan to visit for a few days or longer, you’ll definitely want to return after you experience the history in the museums, stroll through Central Park, eat your way through some of the best restaurants, and (if you’re lucky) enjoy one of the free festivals. New York is a place where it’s smart to , since arriving late at night can be overwhelming if you need to get to your hotel and you have no idea how to get there.
San Francisco is one of the most popular places to live, but the locals are gradually getting pushed out by the tech crowd. It’s still an incredible place to visit though, and each neighbourhood is full of history and culture. Check out the many free museums, take photos of the painted ladies, take an Alcatraz tour, or sign up for the hop-on hop-off bus to learn more about the city and get transportation between attractions thrown in.
Chicago is often underrated as many tourists prefer to visit New York. But Chicago has its own attractions, such as the beautiful skyline, excellent food, and mid-west hospitality. Try the deep-dish pizza, visit the zoo, and take a boat out into the lake for amazing views of that skyline in the sun.
San Diego is an awesome city with Mexican influences that make the food out of this world. This is a city of beaches, bars near the sea, cute shops, and more. Stay on mission or Pacific Beach and spend a day in Coronado, visit the old Coronado hotel for lunch (part of it is now a museum) and buy an ice cream before wandering down by the sea.
There’s tons to do in Miami, particularly if you have kids. Southbeach is fun, especially at night, but a trip out to the Everglades to see the alligators is a must, and you’re just 4 hours from Orlando so you can go scream your head off in the amusement parks.
