Top USA Road Trips

ROAD TRIP, ROAD TRIP, ROAD TRIP! Nothing beats a good ol’fashioned road trip across the USA! If you want to experience the very best of the United States and make some great friends along the way, then check out these top six American road trips…
Whether you want to watch the sunrise over the Grand Canyon, have some late nights partying in Miami or canoe your way across Lake Louise, we’ve got you covered! With trips from 10 to 63 days, these will definitely give you itchy feet! Go on, get scrolling and see which trips tickle your travel taste buds!

In just 21 days you’ll travel right across the USA. Starting in Los Angeles following in the footsteps of the stars (don’t forget a selfie with the HOLLYWOOD sign), before heading to the bright lights of Las Vegas. In the city that doesn’t sleep (we don’t recommend it!) you can explore the strip, party all night before heading to the Grand Canyon. Monument Valley awaits, followed by Texas, Louisiana, New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville, Washington, Philadelphia and SO much more in between! Finishing your trip in the concrete jungle of NYC, tick the Big Apple off your bucket list as you say ‘HELLO’ to the Statue of Liberty, pretzels and Sex and the City.

If you want to spend your evening’s partying-it-up in the US of A then this trip is for you. It honestly doesn’t get better than experiencing the atmosphere in a Miami nightclub. Starting in Orlando you can get the adrenaline pumping in the theme parks (Disney, Universal, Wet N Wild, or Epcot guys?!) or shop til’ you literally drop in the endless outlet malls... er, HELLO new outfits! Upon hitting Miami you’ll get to top up the tan and embrace the atmosphere before you get given your ticket into a Miami nightclub. Feeling a bit weary the next day? Nurse the head with a walking tour of Little Havana and some Cuban grub – delicious!
We’ll show you the REAL America on this 10 day tour of Southern USA as we take in New York, Washington, Charlotte, Savannah, Orlando and Miami. Between Philly Cheesesteak, Disney parks, Miami beaches and Little Havana’s street music scene, we can’t quite pick our highlight. If you want a taste of the South, make sure you check out this action packed trip!

8 days of incredible memories. This trip is one not to be missed! Starting in the buzzing city of Las Vegas, you can create your very own ‘Wolfpack’ (The Hangover) and hit up the strip on a party bus. With plenty of free time you can take on the rollercoasters, watch Britney live (yes really!), and make Vegas a place to remember! Leaving the bright lights behind us you’ll drive to the gateway of stunning Yosemite (pronounced yo-SE-mi-tee) National Park for picture perfect landscapes and wildlife galore, before working your way to San Francisco. In San Fran you’ll walk the Golden Gate Bridge, explore Fisherman’s Wharf and ride on the famous cable cars.
If jaw dropping landscapes are your thing, then check out this high altitude, adventure packed itinerary. Your Instagram account will be SO happy, as this route is beyond photogenic. You’ll be visiting more National Parks than you can count on one hand, get ready to explore Mt Rainier, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Rocky Mountain, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon and Zion. Yep, we told you this was epic! Throw in hiking trails, biking, hot springs, campfires and stunning sunrises (and sunsets), before finishing in the bright lights of Las Vegas.

63 days. Yes, 63 WHOLE days to explore all that the USA (and 2 Canadian provinces!) has to offer. Words can’t quite describe just how EPIC this trip is as you travel across 28 different US states. On a round trip from New York City, you’ll take in city sights, Niagara Falls, The Grand Canyon, white sands of Florida’s beaches, Canadian Rockies (HELLO Lake Louise!) and endless National Parks. We could go on all day… plus did we mention the food? Philly cheese steak, roasted marshmallows, pretzels, Chicago pizzas… *drool*.
