Regarded as the most exciting city in the world, a trip to New York is the experience of a lifetime. A global centre of entertainment, fashion, media and finance where world-class museums and unforgettable icons like the Statue of Liberty beckon, New York pulses with an irrepressible energy. Equally rewarding are the colourful neighbourhoods, historic streets, trendy bars and astonishing array of eateries which all add to the urban buzz.
Where better to take in the grandeur of the Big Apple than from an observation deck, be it the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock or One World Trade Centre. The iconic Empire State building, in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, has breathtaking views from its open-air observatory, and is open until 2am every day; Top of the Rock, at the Rockefeller Centre, actually has three observation decks and all perfectly showcase the City's spectacular skyline; three levels of views are also found at the One World Observatory, at the top of One World Trade Centre, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. Alternatively, book a helicopter tour for a real bird's eye view of New York.
If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, take a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge, an American landmark which stretches over the East River connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn. The walk takes about 40 minutes and delivers exhilarating views. If you want a close-up view of New York's most familiar landmark, the Statue of Liberty, you'll need to hop on one of the ferries that run from Battery in Lower Manhattan to Liberty Island. Visitors can view the museum and climb the stairs to a balcony located at the top of the statue's pedestal, but if you want access to the crown, you must reserve tickets in advance – usually about two months before you wish to visit. Continue your ferry journey to Ellis Island and visit the museum which tells the story of immigration from the colonial era to the present day.
The city's countless other attractions include Central Park, the world's most famous urban park, which contains world-class museums and hosts countless activities and concerts, especially in the summer; Radio City Music Hall, a 1932 art deco theatre offering musical extravaganzas and films as well as guided tours; and Carnegie Hall, New York's first great concert hall. Further cultural offerings can be found on the Upper East Side stretch of Fifth Avenue, known as the Museum Mile it takes in The Met, the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and a handful of others. The 9/11 Memorial & Museum is on the site of the former World Trade Centre and pays a moving tribute to those who lost their lives.
The bright lights and giant billboards of Times Square are another must-see. Big, bright and unforgettable, Times Square is a great place to people-watch, shop and eat. There's also a TKTS discount booth here, which offers up to 50% discount for tickets to many of the Broadway shows. No visit to New York is complete without experiencing a show on Broadway, be it a musical, long-running hit or fascinating drama.
Whatever your retail pleasure, you'll find it in New York. Where better to begin than Fifth Avenue, regarded as the city's premier shopping area, it's home to many flagship stores including Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor and Saks 5th Avenue. The 34th Street Shopping District has over 175 department stores, shops and boutiques including Macy's, while Soho Shopping District is where you'll find Bloomingdale's; the Greenwich Village Shopping District houses one-of-a-kind shops amongst the mainstream retail names; while South Street Seaport is an historic spot with shopping, dining and entertainment.
New York is also rightfully known for its restaurants and nightlife, whether that means sophisticated cocktail bars, dance clubs, taverns, a trendsetting restaurant, classic steakhouse, pizzeria or a bagel bakery, your choices are as limitless as your cravings.
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.
Executive King room
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.
