UNITED STATES DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real United States in a way like no other. Supersized and wildly diverse, the United States does everything in epic proportions and leaves no one indifferent. With a mix of seasons, landscapes and cultures, you can experience a new adventure each day as you tour the states. Our holidays in the US will take you from the East Coast, where you can roam the eclectic neighbourhoods and museums of New York and take a boat ride under Niagara Falls, to the West Coast, where you’ll find a new story. Explore the mighty depths of the Grand Canyon, see the glittering lights of Las Vegas, and savour fresh seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. From Washington to the Wild West, from Detroit Motown to New Orleans jazz, from the Texan cowboys to the Inuits of Alaska, and with all the spectacular mountains, forests, beaches and desert in between, the United States is an endless playground. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
