I ❤ NY
Known as the city that never sleeps, the ever-famous New York city is the heart of all the USA tours. You just need to be here to experience a whole different perspective of life. It is impossible to do it all in New York in merely 2 or 3 days. But you can sure cover the major things you need to visit during your visit to NYC. The Statue of Liberty without which the trip is NYC is incomplete, is a huge neoclassical sculpture located at the Liberty Island. Among the tons of skyscrapers spread across the streets, the One World Trade Centre and the Empire State Building sure stand out. Manhattan, the world’s prominent commercial and financial hub sits at the core of the city and is connected to Brooklyn via the stunning Brooklyn Bridge. For the people looking for Apartment 20 or Central Perk, I hate to say that there isn’t any. But there’s a Central Park at the heart of the city. Head to the Rockefeller Centre, the historic landmark for shopping and dining in Manhattan in the evening and the Times Square, the magnificent intersection that looks amazing at night. With the busy buzz of New York, you’ll start to feel free in spite of the crowded streets.
Niagara Falls- “At last, Fortissimo”
Wait! Isn’t Niagara Falls located in Canada? Yes, that’s partially true. See, the collection of three waterfalls at the international border of USA and Canada is known as Niagara Falls. Out of the three, the American falls is located on the American side, the Horseshoe falls is located at the border and the Bridal Veil Falls on the Canadian side. So, head over to the border from the New York City and wave at Ontario with a magnificent, charming and heavenly range of waterfalls in between. The heavy noise of colliding waters turns into a mesmerizing sound after a while and starts to please your ears. This natural spectacle is a must visit during your family holiday in USA.
Fergie’s LA Love
Tune in to the cinematic cityscape mode of your life and step into an era of fantasy world, Los Angeles which literally translates to the city of Angels. The steep mythological east-west street of LA -the Hollywood Boulevard is such a beauty that it is covered under all USA tour packages these days. The famous landmarks on the streets like the TCL Chinese Theatre, the Hollywood Walk of Fame or Hollywood Wax Museum celebrate the amazing film and entertainment heritage of LA.

Sober on the outside, wild on the inside, the town of LA has some serious business with creativity and dreams. When in LA, always keep an eye, you never know who you might run into.
The Grandest Canyon
With unparalleled diversity, the Grand Canyon makes it to the top of the list for an adventure holiday in USA. The colossal range of iconic landscapes just sitting there, begging to be explored is one of the seven wonders of the world. At Grand Canyon, you’ll find a whole host of environments- everything from cool fir forests to hot, dry deserts. The way more crowded South Rim of the Grand Canyon features captivating views of the Ponderosa pine forests whereas the West Rim features a magnificent Skywalk to walk you right into the middle of the canyon for an amazing view. For generations, this wild landscape has been a stage for exploration and inspiration. Descend deep into the canyon, cross the forests to the riparian habitat at the banks of the Colorado river, discover hidden waterfalls and rugged wilderness. The Grand Canyon holds a precious scenic value for artists and photographers. To slow down and take it all in, to know what’s beyond the reaches of the world and find the sense of discovery within oneself- that’s what the grandest Canyon of Arizona is all about.
