Whether you’re craving creamy New England clam chowder, delightfully messy Tex-Mex enchiladas, fresh Californian citrus or any of the region’s many notable wines, there is something for foodies and oenophiles alike on any USA holiday.
Savour the west coast’s flavours and vintages
Known for fresh produce and a health approach to eating, California’s eating scene is one of the best-known in the world. Take a self-drive up the Pacific coast to discover all the local flavours you might miss on a larger tour, from family-run farm stands to local citrus groves. And don’t miss the giants of America’s wine scene, Napa Valley and Sonoma—they both offer luxury wine experiences from vineyard tours to tastings to Michelin-starred restaurants with carefully-selected food and wine pairings.
Travel a bit further north to Washington State, and you’ll find even more vineyards to explore, but with fewer crowds than the popular Californian wineries.
Experience the food culture of America’s south
As soon as you travel into the southern states of the USA, it’s clear that there is a different take on life—one that is a bit slower, more relaxed, and concerned with spending time with friends and family. Expect to linger over meals here, and perhaps forfeit strict diets for the sheer delight of hush puppies, cheesy grits, gumbo, fried chicken, and more. Holidays to America’s south always involve a lot of eating—and for good reason, as regional cuisine is delicious and diverse.
Enjoy seasonal meals on a holiday to New England
With four distinct seasons, New Englanders have always had to work with what foods were available, and it has paid off with a cuisine that draws from the land and the sea with equal attention to seasonality. Enjoy delicate spring vegetables, clam shack fare of thick, creamy seafood chowder and fried fish in the summer, harvest meals featuring cranberry, pumpkin and dense bread, and a winter menu rich in cinnamon, nutmeg, hearty breakfasts and hot cocoa when your visit New England. Year-round, there is plentiful local beer on tap, and even some young wineries springing up offering wine tasting experiences to travellers.
