When is the best travel time?

Would you like to wander along the beaches of Santa Barbara? Explore New York or New Orleans? Cycle the city of San Francisco? Based on your specific interests, your travel specialist can advise you on the best time to travel and the best regions to visit. Every season offers a new adventure, and each region has a unique personality of its own.

The United States is great for travel at any time of the year

No matter which season is your favourite as a solo traveller, there is always ample opportunity to take in the wonder of nature, and immerse yourself in the culture. The shoulder seasons (spring and autumn) are an ideal time to visit the USA. Take advantage of fewer crowds and get better value for your money. Stay at the best choice of unique accommodations and don't miss out on any activities on your wish list.

How long do I need in the United States?

The United States is one of the biggest countries in the world. You could spend months on a solo trip travelling the ever-changing landscape and not see the same place twice. For your holiday, the question becomes, "How long do I have?" A great solo holiday comes with enough time to truly reset and get into a new rhythm. When you don't have to rush or be on anyone else's agenda.

Travel at a relaxed pace

We recommend travelling at a relaxed pace for a minimum of three weeks. Or, if you have slightly less time, your travel specialist can help you choose the best regions that suit your wishes. The more time you have, the more you can discover authentic America. Rejuvenate yourself in pristine nature, connect with the locals and experience your great American tale.
