The ideal time to visit the USA varies greatly depending on the location and season. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) generally offer pleasant temperatures suitable for city exploration or outdoor adventures in national parks.

Summer typically brings ample sunshine and warm temperatures across the country, with coastal areas benefiting from refreshing sea breezes to temper the heat.

Winters exhibit significant variations depending on geographic location, with southern states experiencing milder conditions compared to their northern counterparts.

Resorts and hotels across the USA typically apply mandatory resort fees, payable locally. These fees range from 5USD to 40 USD per room per night and are not included in the cost of your Kuoni holiday.

West coast

California, known as the 'Golden State,' offers a diverse array of attractions. From iconic cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego along the stunning coastline to numerous national parks, including the famous Yosemite. In addition to Yosemite, lesser-known parks like Lassen and Sequoia offer unique experiences. For those seeking underrated cities and picturesque coastlines, the Pacific Northwest, with cities like Portland and Seattle, and scenic drives along the Pacific Coast Highway, is a must-visit destination.

Islands

Hawaii's volcanic islands, often featured in Hollywood productions like Jurassic Park, boast genuine natural beauty. From forest-clad peaks and valleys to active volcanoes with constant lava flows and world-class surfing spots, Hawaii offers a truly immersive experience in nature.

National parks

Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon offer contrasting experiences, with Vegas as a bustling desert city and the Grand Canyon as one of the world's most renowned natural wonders. A visit to Vegas can be complemented by a short helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon's west rim. Alternatively, embarking on a Southwest road trip from Vegas to explore Arizona's natural wonders, including Monument Valley, Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Parks, offers breathtaking landscapes and unforgettable adventures. Further north, Wyoming and Montana, with attractions like Yellowstone National Park, provide wilderness enthusiasts with unparalleled outdoor experiences.

It's no secret that the USA is a top shopping destination for Brits. Whether you're on a dedicated shopping spree in New York or just picking up a few souvenirs on your holiday, you'll find everything you need across the pond. While the exchange rate may not be as favorable as it once was, many brands are still cheaper in the USA. From clothes and shoes to electronics (though be mindful of regional usage restrictions), makeup, and confectionery, there's something for everyone.

Eastern states

New York City, with its iconic landmarks and bustling streets, offers an unforgettable experience. From exploring Manhattan to people-watching in Bryant Park, there's always something new to discover. Nearby Boston provides a different vibe with its rich Revolutionary history and charming neighborhoods. In the USA's Capital Region, Washington D.C. boasts well-known sights like the White House and the National Mall, along with eclectic neighborhoods waiting to be explored.

The South

The soulful South captivates visitors with its vibrant music scene, historic plantations, and Southern charm. Cities like Memphis and Nashville are alive with music, while Georgia and South Carolina offer picturesque landscapes and antebellum mansions. Florida, a family-favorite destination, features theme parks in Orlando, relaxing resorts along the Gulf of Mexico, and the vibrant beaches of Miami.

Getting around

The USA's vast network of roads, iconic cities, and national parks make it perfect for self-drives. Whether you opt for a hire car or motorhome, exploring at your own pace is ideal for families, friends, and couples. For long distances between cities, flying is the most convenient option, with numerous routes and airlines available. While train travel is not as common as in Europe, it's a convenient way to journey between major cities in the eastern states like Boston, New York City, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia.

Inspiration
One morning, Gregor Samsa awoke from uneasy dreams to find himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous vermin. He lay on his hard, armor-like back, and when he lifted his head slightly, he could see his brown belly, divided into stiff sections by arches. The bedding barely covered him and seemed about to slide off at any moment. His numerous legs, thin and feeble in comparison to the rest of his body, flailed helplessly as he looked around.

"What has happened to me?" he wondered. It was no dream. His room, though somewhat small for his liking, appeared familiar, with its four walls enclosing him. On the table lay a collection of textile samples—Gregor was a travelling salesman—and above it hung a picture he had recently cut out of a magazine, framed in gold. It depicted a lady adorned in fur, holding a heavy muff that concealed her lower arm.

Turning to the window, Gregor gazed at the dreary weather outside. The sound of raindrops hitting the pane filled him with melancholy. "Perhaps I should try to sleep a little longer and forget about this absurdity," he thought. But it proved impossible; accustomed to sleeping on his right side, he found himself unable to assume that position in his current state. No matter how hard he tried, he always rolled back to where he started. After countless attempts, he ceased, feeling a dull ache in his unfamiliar limbs.

"Oh, God," he lamented, "what a demanding profession I've chosen!"
