United States Travel

A great vacation in your own backyard

It's easy to want to get away for vacation, but sometimes time and finances don't allow us to get too far away from home. Lucky for Americans, there are thousands of options right in our own backyards.

Historical United States

Have you visited the places the United States is known for? You may know your United States history, but that doesn't mean you've truly experienced some of the country's best cities.

New York attracts millions of visitors every year, both American and international. If you've never been to the Big Apple before, don't be intimidated. There are plenty of New York hotels in all price ranges. The swankiest are right in Manhattan at the center of all the action, but as you get farther away, the prices begin to drop, which can be nice for the budget. (You might need to spend a little more on taxis to get where you're going, though.)

No matter where you stay, the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building are must-see sights in New York.

Want to stay further south? Brush up on your history in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamo Mission. The Alamo took place in 1836, and was a battle between the Republic of Mexico and rebel Texan forces.

Vacation Relaxation

If you're looking for something a little more hot than historical, a Hawaii vacation might be exactly what you're craving. Many Americans rank Hawaii travel among their favorite destinations. A flight with US Airways can help get you there and home safely with enough time to really soak up the sun on the beach.

North Carolina is the perfect compromise for those seeking both historical charm and an inviting climate, as well as a host of other attractions, such as amusement parks, beaches, wineries, and golf courses. A North Carolina vacation offers a little something for everybody, which is probably why it is one of the most-visited states in the U.S.

If you don't know where you want to go, a United States road trip is perfect! Pack the essentials in your vehicle or rent a camper van and hit the road. Road trips are very versatile – they can be as short or as long as you want and you go at your own pace. Be sure to pack your United States map and your favorite car tunes. Along the way, try staying in a variety of places to get different experiences. Try everything from Florida Keys camping resorts to classic New York or Las Vegas hotels to a charming Maine bed and breakfast.
