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.

Boston FR. R645 A NIGHT!

The cobblestoned birthplace of modern America and high-brow home of Harvard, Boston is pure old-world glamour (well, America's not actually THAT old). When you're finished walking the historic Freedom Trail, done trying to appear scholarly in Harvard Square and finally traced your ancestry to a pint of Guinness in Irish South Boston, it's also home to the Red Sox, Sam Adams and Dunkin' Donuts.

Miami fr. R500 A NIGHT!

Miami, at Florida's southeastern tip, is a vibrant city whose Cuban influence is reflected in the cafes and cigar shops that line Calle Ocho in Little Havana. Miami Beach, on barrier islands across the turquoise waters of Biscayne Bay, is home to glamorous South Beach, famed for its colorful art deco buildings, white sand, surfside hotels and trendsetting nightclubs.

Las Vegas FR. R446 a night!

Vegas baby! The only place on Earth where you'll find the whole world in one place. See the Statue of Liberty, ride a gondola in Venice, climb the Eiffel Tower and play blackjack in Monte Carlo. Loosen those purse strings and spend your days and nights (you won't know what time it is) sipping garish cocktails (they're free, water isn't) and partying until...well, there is no until.

Getting Around
