America is home to some amazing cities, and you could easily spend weeks touring some of the larger destinations. When you have just a few days or a long weekend ahead of you, you have to get creative with what you see and how you make the most of your destination. Here are some fantastic city break ideas to consider for your getaway.
Boston: History and Heritage
As one of the oldest cities in America, Boston is an exciting place to visit if you love history. The city’s antiquated semi-radial layout makes for interesting exploration of the city on foot. In a single weekend, you might choose to tour Boston Common, walk along the historic Freedom Trail and shop in Quincy Market. Boston is home to a number of superb seafood restaurants, and you won’t struggle to find bars with a casual, relaxed vibe.
Las Vegas: Excitement and Fun
Las Vegas, Nevada, has been described as an amusement park for adults, and that is definitely an apt description. By staying on the Strip, you can explore countless casinos and hotels on foot during your city break. There are free hourly fountain, light, theatrical and fire shows, but you can always head inside to gamble, dine at upscale restaurants or dance the night away in one of the many upscale nightclubs.
New York: Culture Capital of America
There is nowhere as culturally diverse in the United States as New York City, and the hardest thing about planning a city break in this dense and rich metropolis might be deciding which of the thousands of attractions to enjoy. Clamoring for the top spot on your must-see itinerary might be visiting the Empire State Building, a boat tour to the Statue of Liberty, a walk along Times Square and catching a show on Broadway.
