Destination guide

Tip your 10-gallon hat to the United States

Brush up on your reality TV and save room for the hamburgers – you're going to the United States! A vast nation of 50 states and several overseas territories, the US is known for its bustling cities, wild west history and boundless preserved natural beauty. Urban centres like New York and Los Angeles are loaded with museums, iconic architecture and buzzy dining, and away from the city lights, you'll find sandy beaches, scenic national parks and outdoor activities of all sorts – from surfing to ice fishing. Whatever you're looking for, there are countless United States vacation rentals with everything you need.

Things to do

State(s) of the arts – culture and more in the United States

If it's culture you're after, look no further – most US cities more or less ooze world-class art, science and history museums. From New York City's epic Metropolitan Museum of Art to Tennessee's preserved 19th-century plantations and the funky International UFO Museum in Roswell, New Mexico, you can find whatever culture – or subculture – floats your boat. Major attractions like Disney World and Disneyland are serious destinations for families, and the nation's countless zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens are always worth the trip.


Get out of town – nature to nightlife in the United States

Nature lovers will find enough for 100 lifetimes in the country's national parks – Yosemite, Acadia, Denali and other scenic preserves offer hiking trails, campsites, ski spots and waterfront recreation. You can find rivers, lakes and waterfalls in just about every state, and both coasts are lined with world-class beaches and scenic oceanfront cliffs. Cosmopolitan cities – New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and the like – all offer loads of shopping, dining and live entertainment, and you can catch everything from ballet and opera to punk gigs, baseball games and stand-up comedy every night of the week.


It's sun o'clock somewhere – weather in the United States

From the tropical climes of the Florida Keys to the (usually) gloomy skies over rain-soaked Seattle, United States weather is as varied as its scenery. Much of the central, southern and eastern parts of the country have a humid subtropical climate, while the western states boast desert, alpine or oceanic weather patterns. Summers are generally warm to hot, and winter weather can range from downright toasty in the southwest to devastatingly cold in much of the east coast and the midwest. Whether it's a seaside bungalow or a mountain chalet, you'll find United States vacation rentals custom-tailored to your dream trip.

Natural highlights

Coast to coast and more – the United States's super scenery

From Alaska's tundras and glaciers to Hawaii's tropical rainforests and volcanoes, Florida's swamps to Utah's red-rock deserts, biodiversity abounds in the United States. You'll find rolling hillsides, rivers and lakes all over, and the majestic Rocky Mountains offer world-class skiing and scenic views. While much of the country is rural or suburban, you'll find population centres in every region. Many United States vacation rentals are within a short drive from the country's countless national parks, where you can spot native species like grizzly bears, porcupines, mountain lions, bison and more.
