Fly with BA to the United States and sample some of the world’s most exciting destinations, including:

Huntington Beach

Tucked away on a stretch of coastline and affectionately known as “Surf City USA,” Huntington Beach is a place where the summer never ends. 10 miles of uninterrupted beaches provide the perfect setting for sunbathing and water-based activities, while promenades and boardwalks offer a whole host of eateries and attractions of their own. Visit the International Surfing Museum which houses the world’s largest surfboard, drop by the Huntington Beach Art Centre for its curated collections aimed at experimentation, education and experience, or head to the iconic Huntington Beach Pier for panoramic views.

Palm Springs

Palm springs is a desert oasis like no other. Set in the Coachella valley in California, this modern and vibrant city is home to hot springs, stylish hotels, exclusive golf courses and chic spas. Nearby Coachella Valley Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park provide some of America’s most beautiful scenery, while visitors can take advantage of the surrounding mountains for fantastic views with the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. And don’t forget to visit the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway, where newlyweds Elvis and Priscilla Presley spent time after their ceremony.

San Diego

California’s second city behind Los Angeles, San Diego is the home to year-round hot temperatures and near-constant sunshine. One of the USA’s most family-friendly cities, San Diego bursts with world-famous attractions for all ages, including SeaWorld, the Museums of Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. From the European elegance of Little Italy to the modern chic of the Gaslamp Quarter, America’s Finest City has something for everyone.


As the US’ third largest city and sat at one end of the historic Route 66, Chicago is jam-packed with things to do. One of Chicago’s most exhilarating attractions stands 94 stories in the air. The TILT viewing platform at the John Hancock Tower tilts visitors outward, giving them a unique view of the city below. Even higher and 103 floors above the ground is the Skydeck at Willis Tower, where those brave enough can step out onto a transparent platform with nothing but sidewalk below! Food is also part of Chicago’s cultural makeup, and local speciality deep dish pizza is a must-try.


Steeped in indigenous Native American history, Lake Tahoe straddles the border of Nevada and California and has starred in many Hollywood blockbusters due to its breathtaking aesthetics. Snow-capped mountains and cobalt water make for incredible scenery, but this stunning lake resort is so much more than a pretty face. Ski slopes, casinos, kayaking – Lake Tahoe has it all. Hike up to Inspiration Point for panoramic views of Emerald Bay, or take a speedboat out and dive into the refreshing drink.


This laid-back California county is booming with boutique hotels, fantastic restaurants and some of the best wineries that this renowned valley region has to offer. Twice the size of nearby Napa, Sonoma is home to 17 distinct appellations and there’s plenty of scope to try out some of the local produce. St Francis Winery & Vineyards has fantastic seasonal food waiting to be paired with their wines, while wine resort Francis Ford Coppola Winery, owned by the famous Hollywood director of the same name, is a must-visit for film buffs.

San Francisco

San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Located on a hilly peninsula in northern California, it is famed for its steep, rolling inclines, iconic bridges and unique architecture. Cosmopolitan and diverse, the stunning Bay Area only gets better with age.

Visit iconic streets with historic rolling cable cars, walk across one of San Fran’s biggest landmarks – the Golden Gate Bridge – and take the boat over to infamous island-prison Alcatraz.
