America’s vast landscapes are home to many histories, from the early days in the colonial east coast, to the diverse musical and culinary heritage of the Deep South and the cowboy culture of the West.

Should you travel east, west, north or south?
Which region of the USA should you visit? In New England, you’ll find towns and villages imbued with a sense of history, as the colonial cobbled roads and shipping heritage of places like Boston and Salem come alive.
Travel further south, and America’s diversity becomes apparent in the music and cuisine of Memphis and New Orleans. Keep going and you’ll find the beaches, marshes and multicultural mix of Florida, where southern hospitality and Caribbean culture freely blend.
On the west coast, California offers two distinctly different cultures in its sun-soaked and diverse south, and the vineyards, cities, and intellectual hubs of the north. Elsewhere in the American West, you’ll discover national parks and ranching culture that illustrate how life in these regions has always been closely connected to the land.
America’s cities and countryside
While the regional differences throughout the USA are real, as you travel through American cities and countryside, you’re likely to experience a real cultural shift.
Visitors to the American countryside will notice a hospitality that radiates from local people, and there is little better than making a new friend on your holidays from striking up a casual conversation in a shop or restaurant.
The cities, from New York to Los Angeles, Miami and Boston, offer a bustling energy and plenty of historical monuments, museums, sporting events, and more to immerse you in American history and culture.
