Are you getting ready to plan your next vacation? Are you hoping to stay relatively local and travel within the US? If so there are all kinds of fabulous cities and towns worth visiting across the country, but some tend to be a little more popular than others when it comes to tourism. Here we’ll take a look specifically at three of the top US travel destinations – the cities of New York City, Orlando, and Las Vegas, and what you need to experience in each of them.
New York City
How do you sum up, in just a few words, what the main highlights and draws are of New York City? This is the country’s most visited city; in fact, it just so happened to set a record in 2018 with 65.2 million visitors. When it comes to the must-see attractions, you’ll definitely want to consider such highlights as Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, the American Museum of Natural History, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Empire State Building, the Museum of Modern Art, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square, and the New York Public Library.
Of course, a big part of New York City is the performing arts scene. You’ll find everything from lavish Broadway productions, to off-Broadway hits, concerts, and live event specials. In fact, there are so many options that you could build your entire trip around music and live shows. With that said, tickets do tend to sell out fast, especially for big-name events. That’s why you’ll want to purchase tickets in advance of your trip. The website TicketSales is known for its huge selection of sporting and concert tickets for sale; simply type in the city or venue you are searching for and you’ll get a list of options.
If it’s a fun in the sun style of vacation that you’re after, then Orlando, FL could be your best option. Because it’s in the sunshine state, you can bet on pretty amazing weather all year-round. Orlando itself is also a perfect destination for those who want an activity-based holiday.
Within a short distance, you’ll be able to visit the world-famous Walt Disney World, Kennedy Space Center, Gatorland, SeaWorld, Universal Studios Florida, Wet ‘N Wild, and the Orlando Science Center. As you can tell, it is ideal for families who don’t want to spend their entire vacation at the pool or beach.
Then we’ve got the destination of Las Vegas, which is all about excitement and fun. You can literally find things to do all hours of the day and night, so there will never be a moment of boredom. Booking accommodations on The Strip is ideal as then you are centrally located and near all the major attractions, shows, live events, dining, shopping, casinos, and big hotels. It should also be noted that Las Vegas has been going through a real change in the past decade and is no longer seen just as a playground for adults. Now you’ll find activities and attractions that appeal to travelers of all ages.
No matter which of these three cities you may choose to visit, you’re in for plenty of fun and adventure.
