Stay in your favourite hotels or upgrade your flights to First Class on an adventure to this memorable destination.

The United States of America need no introduction. The famous 'Land of the Free', takes pride in offering entertainment on a large scale, ensuring that there's never a dull moment.

Choose to follow the winding Mississippi south and you'll find the birthplace of the blues and ghosts of the American Civil War. Head to the West Coast and California's sun-kissed vineyards, beaches, and Hollywood await you. Why not enhance your itinerary with a night at the RMS Queen Mary, a luxury hotel in Long Beach?

Journey northeast from New York and you will be rewarded by the sight of Maine's colourful autumnal display. Here, you can enjoy a journey on the Mount Washington Cog Railway or the North Conway Scenic Railroad. On a bespoke rail holiday from GRJ independent, you can even undertake the ultimate American rail trip from West Coast to East, if you choose.
