Denver was established during the 1850 Gold Rush. Today, there are organised tours of authentic, local gold mines. The Colorado city is now the Gateway to the Rockies, where visitors hike, pony trek and climb in summer. In the winter months, the mountains are perfect for skiing and tobogganing. With 300 sunny days a year, Denver is a cheerful destination with dozens of coffee shops and bistros. 



America's tropical paradise is in Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii. Beautiful sandy beaches such as Kewalos and Waimea are famous for their excellent surfing conditions. Relax beneath the palm trees of Waikiki Beach before visiting nearby shopping malls, exclusive restaurants and vibrant night clubs. The unspoilt scenery of Honolulu includes Diamond Head, a safely dormant volcanic crater. The Hanauma Bay Nature Reserve is ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving while looking for green sea turtles in the coral reef.


Las Vegas

Brash and vibrant, Las Vegas has plenty of entertaining novelties. The spectacular Fountains of Bellagio frequently erupt in a lake to the accompaniment of music and dazzling light shows. Along the Las Vegas Strip is the High Roller, a gigantic ferris wheel with a height of 520 feet (158.5 metres). Vegas has at least sixty casinos including Caesar's Palace where cocktails and cabaret are offered alongside arcade machines and roulette tables. For a break from the bright lights of ‘Sin City’, visit the unspoilt wilderness of the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area - it's teeming with wildlife including lizards, hawks, bobcats and coyotes.


Los Angeles

LA is most famous for being the home of Hollywood, the district where the film industry established itself in 1911. Visitors can join studio tours and admire decades of film history and ‘Tinseltown’ memorabilia. Today's stars are reputed to visit the exclusive stores and restaurants of Robertson Boulevard and Rodeo Drive. Star-gazing of a different kind is available at the free planetarium at the Griffith Observatory. LA has many green spaces, but the most popular is the dog-friendly Runyon Canyon Park. It offers amazing views of the city and has naturally rugged areas that are ideal for running, walking and cycling.

Lombard Street has multiple sharp bends designed to reduce the steep gradient, but it still offers incredible views of the city.  The best way to explore the steep city streets is to board one of the historic trams. The mile-long Golden Gate Bridge was completed in 1937. One end is in the Downtown neighbourhood, which is noted for gift shops, high-quality restaurants and a very busy nightlife.
