New York is synonymous with shopping and anyone visiting for retail therapy will not be disappointed in its array of famous establishments, including Sak's, Macy's and Bloomingdale's. Almost every corner of New York boasts a view of some world famous landmark: Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge - a Stay and Explore holiday offers something new every day - and opportunities to absorb its evening atmosphere across a vast range of superb restaurants and stylish bars.
Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon
In the middle of Nevada's vast desert landscapes, Las Vegas is a wonderland of sights, sounds and experiences right on the door step of the incredible Grand Canyon. The glitz, glamour and sheer fun of Las Vegas ensures every moment in the city is memorable whether you are trying your luck on the poker or blackjack tables or absorbing the neon spectacles of the famous Las Vegas Strip, which include the extravagant Mirage, Treasure Island and MGM Grand casinos.
Only a short trip from the Golden Mile lies the Grand Canyon National Park - and the Grand Canyon itself which, at over 277 miles long and up to 18 miles wide, represents a genuine wonder of the natural world. Our Stay and Explore excursions in the sprawling Grand Canyon take visitors through breathtaking environments, including desert vistas, pine forests and the gigantic canyon. For a closer look, adventurous visitors might even like to take a helicopter tour - for a unique and comprehensive experience of the sheer enormity of this unique natural phenomenon.
