The USA offers so much choice as a holiday destination, so why visit just one place? Multi-centre breaks are a great way of seeing more in a single trip - and it's hard to imagine a better combination than New York and Los Angeles.
Both the Big Apple and LA are home to some of the country's most iconic attractions, so an itinerary like this is ideal if you're keen to see the sights that make the USA so famous.
Why choose a multi-centre break?
A holiday that visits several destinations in one go may instantly appeal to some people, while sounding a little hectic to others. But a well-planned multi-centre break needn't be more tiring than any other kind of holiday - and at Bon Voyage, we have 30 years' experience in making sure that your trip runs smoothly.
Here are just a few of the advantages of multi-centre breaks:
•See more in one trip: If you're taking the time to fly from the UK to the USA and are able to spend several weeks exploring, it makes sense to kill two birds with one stone by visiting more than one destination. This is the perfect way to make the most of your time and have the opportunity to see that little bit more of this exciting, varied country. • Break up your journey: Multi-centre holidays can also be a great way of breaking up long journeys into smaller chunks. Not only will you have a more comfortable trip, but you'll get to see more too! •Enjoy the variety: Of course, another major advantage of a multi-centre break is that it simply offers more variety - the USA is a big, diverse place, and by exploring two or more destinations in one trip, you can really get a feel for just how different individual places can be.
Experience two icons of America
New York and LA are a perfect match when it comes to multi-centre holidays. Perhaps particularly well-suited to newcomers or infrequent visitors, this twin-centre combination gives you the chance to experience the many attractions of two of the country's most iconic destinations.
By visiting both, you can see the Statue of Liberty standing proud on Liberty Island, look out over the Big Apple from the top of the Empire State Building and enjoy the bright lights of Broadway - and that's just in New York.
Once you head over to LA, you can delve into the heart of America's movie business. Experience real film sets at Universal Studios, and see the world-famous Hollywood sign - you'll soon feel like a movie star yourself!
Top attractions in New York
Can't wait to have a bite of the Big Apple? Here are just a few of the things to look forward to:
• The Statue of Liberty: New York's most famous lady, the Statue of Liberty, is a must-visit. Take the ferry over to Liberty Island to see the Roman goddess of freedom holding the American Declaration of Independence. The ultimate icon of New York and the USA as a whole, the statue was a gift from France at the end of the 19th century. •The Empire State Building: At 318 m tall and containing 102 storeys, the Empire State Building is truly massive. Take a trip to one of its two observation decks to get outstanding views across the metropolis. • Central Park: Spanning 843 acres, Central Park is one of the world's largest urban parks. It's a great place to take a break from the busy city streets - but that doesn't mean it's all peace and quiet. This is no ordinary park, with it being home to a zoo, skating rinks and boating facilities, to name just a few attractions.
Top attractions in LA
LA is the ultimate place to experience the USA's movie glamour - and much more besides! Just a handful of the attractions you shouldn't miss are:
• The Walk of Fame: The Hollywood Walk of Fame is one of the highlights of any trip to LA. Running down Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, the walk consists of stars inlaid into the pavement. While some are still blank and waiting to be filled, most are inscribed with famous names from the movie and TV industry - so take a walk and spot your favourite names. • Universal Studios: Universal Studios Hollywood is the biggest working movie and TV studio and theme park in the world. For the ultimate experience, book a VIP studio tour and have the chance to explore real movie sets. Plus, there are some fantastic rides here that younger travellers in particular are likely to love. • Getty Museum: LA isn't all about the movie industry - there are plenty of other sorts of attractions here as well. If you're keen to soak up a little culture, for instance, don't miss a visit to the J. Paul Getty Museum , which showcases the amazing collection of antiquities, sculptures and paintings put together by J. Paul Getty. Make sure you take the time to explore the stunning gardens here too.
