Holidays in the US: Suitable for Families and Singles

16 October 2012 One Comment

The United States of America is well known for being family friendly, but it is not just those with children who can enjoy all that America has to offer. An increasing number of single men and women are joining together to enjoy group holidays across the country.

Whether you come with kids in tow or are footloose and fancy-free, America is truly the land of opportunity. Opportunities for holidays abound, from the world-famous Disneyland resorts to gambling in Las Vegas or experiencing the hustle and bustle of New York, the city that never sleeps. Those who like adventure will not be disappointed either, as treks across the desert, white-water rafting and mountain climbing are all easily accessible.

Family Fun

Family adventure holidays in USA are as varied as can be. Taking the children along on a trip need not restrict your fun, as there are activities suitable for the whole family, no matter what your ages. Cowboys and Indians is a favourite game for youngsters, so why not head into Navajo country and experience horseback riding at one of the many ranches? Tours can be arranged that keep the children interested, often guided by one of the local Navajo Indians, which well enable you to get a true feel for the country. For those who prefer a little more water in their itinerary, why not try indulging in waterspouts on the glorious Californian coast? The whole family can get involved in lessons designed for anyone, from absolute beginners up to the more advanced. Rollerblading alongside the beach in Los Angeles is one of the must do activities for those who really want to embrace the Californian way of life, as is a trip to the world famous San Diego Zoo. Older children will love being involved in touring the country, whilst younger kids would be better suited to a holiday with a set base, but whatever your needs, it is easy to organise the right holiday for you.

On Your Own

No matter what your tastes, be it heading into the bright lights of Las Vegas, star spotting in Hollywood or hiking through the Grand Canyon, being part of a group can provide you with added security and people with whom to enjoy socialising. You can travel with a group for all or part of your holiday and most singles tours offer a degree of flexibility. Adventure holidays for singles comprising a group of people who enjoy similar experiences can add a dimension to your holiday that travelling alone cannot match. The evenings are usually taken up with organised social activities that allow you to really get to know your travelling companions, but there is no requirement to attend if you are in need of a bit of peace and quiet.

Being single does not mean that you always have to travel alone. Adventure holidays that involve meeting up with other, like minded people mean that you can have as much or as little company as you like.

    A cross-country travel with friends or a group of singles would be fun. Something like NYC to Big Sur would be exciting.
