When to visit the USA
The simple answer is that the USA is great all year round and when you visit totally depends on what type of trip you're after. In case you hadn't noticed, the USA is pretty darn big so the weather can vary quite a bit from state to state. In winter time (generally November - March), parts of the US are covered in a thick layer of powdery white snow - perfect for winter sports lovers. In summer time, the Florida and California coasts come alive - you'll find endless stretches of sandy beaches to kick back and relax on. Prices tend to be highest during the school summer vacation (July/August) - travel during off peak times and you'll be sure to bag yourself a sweet deal or two.
It's practically an American rite of passage to grab some friends, throw your junk in the trunk and scream off into the sunset. Cruise out of Las Vegas in a classic convertible, ride the rails with Amtrak or discover the Deep South in a campervan with the radio blasting out Dolly Parton.

Kicks abound on Route 66 – come get yours. Nicknamed "the Main Street of America," there’s nothing Norman Rockwell-esque on the stretch of highway you’ll travel on this trip. Burgers, longboards, and big-city shenanigans are the order of the day every day as you take in the sights and sounds of LA, Vegas, San Diego, and the Grand Canyon with an expert leading the way. If you’ve always longed to see the real American Southwest but never had the time or the money, well, you’re fresh out of excuses.
