From theme parks to National Parks, the USA is a destination that can suit almost every pace of holiday. You can experience the thrill of Las Vegas, witness the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon or take a city tour of New York and snap photos with the Statue of Liberty.

You can also take in the iconic sights of Washington DC and brush shoulders with the president, or see some of America’s history in the Deep South. You can also enjoy an adventure in Texas, where you can get a real sense of the Wild West.

With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder that road trips across America are so popular. The Pacific Coast Highway takes in the very best of San Francisco and Los Angeles, while the Overseas Highway shows you some of America’s best scenery on the way to Miami. Road trips don’t get more iconic than Route 66 though. It takes you all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles and you’re close to Santa Fe, the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas if you’d like to take a few detours.

Don’t forget about the food, too. America’s culinary history is so great that the country’s towns, cities and states have a number of delicacies named after them, such as the Philly cheesesteak, Buffalo wings, New York cheesecake, California rolls, baked Alaska and even Mississippi mud pie. No matter what you’re craving, there’s a food for you in America.  

Whatever you plan on doing in the USA, it’s important that you get travel insurance for the USA to help protect yourself against unforeseen eventualities.

If you need any medical attention as a tourist in America, it can be incredibly expensive.  An EHIC or GHIC card will not cover you in America because this is a reciprocal agreement the UK has only with other European countries.

In America, many residents have their own private medical insurance that covers them if they fall ill or get injured. For this reason, if you don’t have travel insurance for the USA, it can be very expensive for you to receive treatment, so even a minor fall or illness could end up costing you a significant sum of money if you’re not covered by USA travel insurance.
