No matter what your interests, city breaks introduce you to state-of-the-art theatres, large-scale shopping malls, sprawling green parks, and fascinating aquariums. Come rain or shine; wander museums brimming with American history and culture before settling in a side street coffee shop to enjoy a warming brew and gigantic slice of traditional American cheesecake. By night, experience some real fun at a choice of live music venues, clubs, and bars.
Soak up the Florida sunshine while exploring the art-deco architecture and marine parks or marvel at some of America's tallest skyscrapers in Chicago, including the likes of the Hancock Centre and Willis Tower. Find out all about the rich military heritage and take in the laid-back lifestyle of San Diego or jet off to Nashville to test out the infamous hot chicken and immerse yourself in the captivating music scene; otherwise known as the 'mother church of country music'.
Canada's bustling west coast seaport, Vancouver awaits with its famous filming locations and diverse mountainous landscape. Its scene of art, theatre, and music will also capture your heart. Discover the finest beer on Granville Island and wander Gastown to marvel at the steam clock as you uncover many trendy souvenir shops, as well as indie art galleries. Alternatively, venture to Toronto to see the striking CN Tower, enjoy Canadian culture at Royal Ontario Museum, and wander the stately castle of Casa Loma.
No trip to North America would be complete without introducing your taste buds to a host of new flavours. Tuck into juicy hamburgers, sample clam chowder, sink your teeth into deep-dish pizzas, and see what the fuss of Texas barbecue dishes is all about.
With many exciting sightseeing opportunities, fascinating history and culture, and a delectable gastronomy scene...these are just a few of the reasons why you should fly off on a North America city break for your next holiday.
