Holidays to the United States of America and Hawaii Islands
The US of A as they say is a country with so much to offer the visitor for a holiday. The choice is endless from the East Coast of America to the West coast and from the North to the South of America. Every type of sight, activity and experience is there waiting to be experienced. America is the perfect destination for a twin center holiday with another American state or with Canada or a Caibbean island such as Barbados
America is split into 52 states with California, Florida and the East Coast of America being the most popular with British tourists.
The most populous State in the USA, California from the coast to the Sierra, from its lush northern forests to its sun-drenched south, California offers a rich array of holiday possibilities. Depending on your interests, you can travel to bustling cities, watch the waves roll in at a deserted beach or explore natural beauty. You can spend all your time in densely populated cities, or travel to places where the population is less than the elevation. From south to north, as you travel to California, it becomes greener and wilder, from west to east it becomes higher and drier. Known as 'the Middle Kingdom', the Central Coast extends from the Bay Area to Los Angeles County, along the Pacific coast and to the vineyards of the valleys around Santa Barbara. A trip to California is not complete without a visit to the second-biggest city in the USA: Los Angeles, the 'City of Angels'. Orange County is home to one of the world's most famous attractions, Disneyland. As well as the theme parks, resorts and shopping, the county offers 67 km (42 miles) of beaches and charming rural communities of the Santa Ana Mountains.
Visit the cosmopolitan city of San Francisco, whose cable cars and Golden Gate Bridge are instantly recognisable Or visit the Deserts region, in the southeast, with its expansive landscapes, brilliant skies, traces of pioneer history and glittering resort cities. Most visitors to the region explore one of the rustic ghost towns or drive along historic Route 66. The Inland Empire, centred around the cities of San Bernardino and Riverside, is the fastest-growing metropolitan region in the USA. Only an hour from Los Angeles, its varied landscape - from snow-capped mountains for skiing to sand dunes and farmlands - makes it an ideal film location, and the region is known as 'Hollywood's largest back lot'.
Weather in CaliforniaMuch of California enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with sunny, warm summers and wet, fairly mild winters.
