No city in the USA can compete with New Orleans when it comes to culture, food, historic architecture and joie de vivre. In the birthplace of jazz, music is everywhere, particularly around the historic French Quarter with its stunning architecture, intricate balconies and flower-filled courtyards.
The original settlement of New Orleans is the beautiful French Quarter, or Vieux Carre as it is sometimes known. Established by the French in 1718, the district is a National Historic Landmark and boasts stunning architecture adorned by cast-iron balconies and with hidden courtyards filled with lush greenery. At just thirteen blocks wide, it's easily walkable and is a wonderful place to simply wander and soak up the atmosphere, be it the boisterous party vibe of Bourbon Street or the bohemian elegance of Royal Street.
Life in the Quarter centres around New Orleans' most famous landmark, Jackson Square, which is flanked by historic structures such as the St Louis Cathedral, the Presbytere and Cabildo, which house the Louisiana State Museums. Walk the beautiful gardens inside the square, admire the works peddled by artists and enjoy the local street performers as they entertain and fill the air with culture and magic.
Two miles upriver from the French Quarter is the equally historic Garden District with its well-preserved collection of antebellum mansions, pristine gardens and southern charm. While most visit to admire the architecture, the area also offers shopping, cafes, delicious restaurants, cocktail bars and pubs.
Other notable city attractions include the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, City Park, New Orleans Museum of Art and the New Orleans Streetcars, which date from the 1920s and are beloved by locals and tourists alike. Perhaps only in New Orleans could cemeteries – or 'Cities of the Dead' - be regarded as a major attraction! With spooky history and unique elaborate tombs and mausoleums sited above ground, due to the city's location on a swamp, don't miss a guided tour of either St Louis or Lafayette Cemetery.
New Orleans is also renowned for its music, particularly jazz. It's also a mecca for gospel and R&B, with music flowing readily day and night on street corners and in all manner of venues from swanky lounges to tiny honky tonks. The city really comes alive during carnival season, which runs from 6th January to Ash Wednesday and culminates in Mardi Gras, a whirl of parades, parties and masked balls. Let's not forget the cuisine. Southern, Cajin, Creole and French fares are much in evidence, and each restaurant puts its own spin on traditional favourites, or why not visit a cooking school and learn how to cook jambalaya?
Premier Holidays offer a fantastic selection of hotels in New Orleans, see our brochure for further details.
Welcome to the bright lights and big city allure of California's largest city. A Sprawling place where A-list celebrities really do walk the pavements and where you'll discover the fun-filled theme parks of Disneyland and Universal Studios, the glitzy Beverly Hills shops, incredible museums and a selection of palm-fringed beaches.
Where better to experience Tinseltown glamour than at the elaborate TCL Chinese Theatre, which has been home to the most prominent red carpet movie premieres since 1927. Still a top place for premieres in Hollywood. Take a guided walking tour to peek behind the theatre's impressive golden doors and learn more about master showman Sid Grauman, the original owner. Outside is the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which runs for a mile along Hollywood Boulevard and where you'll find hundreds of movie star hand and footprints.
There's perhaps nowhere better to follow in the footsteps of silver-screen legends than Sunset Boulevard, a route rich in film lore that stretches from Downtown to glamourous Malibu. It includes Sunset Strip which was the setting for rock and roll decadence in the 70's and 80's but has recently undergone a chic renaissance, with luxury hotel towers and fine restaurants hidden behind ivy-clad walls.
Originally built as 'Hollywoodland' for a housing development, the sign was rebuilt as "Hollywood" in 1949 and has become a Los Angeles icon and synonymous with the city. The easiest way to catch a photo opportunity is from the Hollywood & Highland shopping complex, or alternatively from the multiple hiking trails on Mt Hollywood accessible from Griffith Park. This large park is also where you'll find the Griffith Observatory, one of LA's greatest cultural attractions, while LA's world class museums include the stunning Getty Centre in Brentwood and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Museum Row.
For the ultimate Hollywood experience, spend the day at Universal Studios Hollywood. This real working film studio also has an array of thrilling theme park rides and shows, along with shops, restaurants and cinemas at CityWalk. Further working television and film studios offering tours include Warner Bros Studios, Sony Pictures and Paramount Pictures. In neighbouring Anaheim is Disneyland Park, Walt Disney's original theme park, or in Buena Park you'll find Knott's Berry Farm, which features dozens of rides, shows and attractions.
Where better to peek into the land of the rich and famous than Beverly Hills. Opulent estates, lavish hotels, stretch limousines and of course, ritzy Rodeo Drive, which is a must, even if it's just for window shopping. At nearby Beverly and Canon Drives there's beautiful shops and the chance for some celebrity spotting, while at The Grove, you can eat, shop and catch a film. Alternatively, head for the LA Fashion District and Santee Alley, while for designer label bargains look no further than LA's Citadel Outlet Shopping Centre.
As you might expect, Los Angeles has one of the most dynamic dining scenes in the country, offering everything from street food to celebrity chef restaurants. Nightlife options are equally endless, whether you're in search of a quiet drink with someone special or dancing the night away with thousands of fellow party people.
Neighbouring Santa Monica is a dynamic oceanfront city, with a broad beach, lively pier and superb shopping on the pedestrianised Third Street Promenade. Equally inviting is sophisticated Newport Beach with its pristine beaches, luxury shopping, fine dining and watersport options. Southern California beach culture thrives in Huntington Beach, where you can cycle down an oceanfront path, stroll the landmark pier and, of course, surf. Long Beach is another lively coastal city with beaches and marinas along its waterfront and a busy dining and shopping scene – it's also the home of the permanently docked ocean liner Queen Mary.
In America's gambling capital you'll be given every assistance to relieve you of your hard-earned cash, but aside from the amazing casinos Las Vegas offers incredible shopping, thrill rides and roller coasters, golf courses, world-class spas and superb nightlife. This is Glitz with a capital G!
Where better to begin than with a stroll along the fabulous Strip, a 2.5 mile section of Las Vegas Boulevard lined with flashy mega-resorts, shopping malls, restaurants and attractions. Each hotel bursts with magnificent amenities including vast casinos and is a destination unto itself, with many featuring a defining theme.
For outstanding views of the Strip, try out the High Roller ferris wheel or the Stratosphere Tower where along with the panoramic vistas at its summit, there are a quartet of terrifying thrill rides.
Helicopter flights are another option for taking in the stunning Strip views, both by day and night. Or, head further afield in a day trip to the awesome Grand Canyon or impressive Hoover Dam.
In downtown Las Vegas you'll find Fremont Street Experience, a five-block entertainment district. Along with iconic casinos, there's over 60 restaurants and shops and attractions such as live music, the Viva Vision screen featuring free light shows, the SlotZilla zip line, the Neon Museum and the fascinating Mob Museum.
Las Vegas shows are as well-known as the city itself and they definitely don't disappoint. Headliner concerts, magic shows, comedy acts, theatrical performances, you name it, the list goes on and on, whatever the time of year.
Shopping in Vegas is also legendary, with gleaming malls dotting the Strip and with a huge array of dining venues, it's unlikely you'll starve whilst in the city! From specials and buffets at practically every resort to five-star, celebrity-chef restaurants, Las Vegas is a food lover's dream.
