Destination Guide: United States

The United States is a country situated in North America that is comprised of 50 states (national districts). With both Alaska and Hawaii extend the nation’s presence into the Pacific Ocean. More than 75 million of us travel to the United States internationally every year. It’s somewhere we’ve had the pleasure of exploring over the course of a number of visits spanning a number of years.

Here are a couple of different cities we’ve visited extensively and want to give you an in-detail look at. At the bottom of this page, you’ll also find all of our articles from the United States. This includes hotel and hostel reviews, reviews of our inter-state travels by bus or plane, as well as other cities and state experience including; Las Vegas, New York, Boston and Dallas, Texas.

Orlando, Florida

Orlando is situated in the sunshine state of Florida. It’s home to multiple different theme parks, the largest and most popular of which being Walt Disney World. We’ve separated our Orlando content into two different resorts within Orlando, Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando. Both parks offer equally fantastic experiences but have a whole host of different rides, characters, themes and on-site hotels. You could visit one, both or even none (there’s plenty of other things to do in Orlando besides the parks!) of these resorts during your trip to Orlando.

Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World is a combination of four theme parks, two waterparks and a number of hotels situated in Orlando, Florida. Walt Disney World plays host to more than 20 million visitors every single year.

Universal Studios Orlando

Universal Studios is made up of two theme parks which are connected by the Hogwarts Express and one waterpark, Volcano Bay. Characters and themes you’ll see at Universal Studios include; Despicable Me, Shrek, Barney, Transformers, Men in Black, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and more…

Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles is a city on the west coast of the United States, situated within the state of California. It’s the second most popular city with tourists and home to the film and television industry. Attractions here include; The Hollywood Sign, TLC Chinese Theatre and the Walk of Fame. Travelling around Los Angeles is much easier to explore on public transport when compared to the likes of Orlando thanks to a bus, train and metro service. However, the prices of hotels and attractions in the city can be more expensive.

Disneyland California

Disneyland California is the original Disney resort. It opened back in 1955 and is currently comprised of two theme parks; Disneyland and Disneyland California Adventure. While you can do both parks in one day with a park hopper, we’d always recommend anything from two to five days (depending on your love for Disney and all the attractions) to really make the most of your visit.

Universal Studios Hollywood

Not only is Universal Studios Hollywood made up of a theme park it’s also an in-production working film studio. Which has been the backdrop to many classic films including the 1987 classic Bates Motel. If you’re a film or TV buff then this park is one you’re going to want to visit during your trip to Los Angeles!
