Entirely different from the North-eastern United States, or the South, the American West offers pleasures all its own. The West, indeed California and Nevada alone, offer experiences as diverse as glamorous Las Vegas and eternally charming San Francisco, while the Grand Canyon lies waiting in all its majestic glory. In Southern California there are miles and miles of glorious beaches beside which star-studded Los Angeles waits to be discovered as does scenic San Diego. In one region, travellers can enjoy magnificent landscapes, natural wonders and great cities. Moreover, each city on this journey has its own special character.
There are many different ways to explore the American West, but the itinerary planned by Newmarket Holidays for its escorted holiday to the region is notable for covering all the essential sights.

The Newmarket Holidays journey to the American West starts out in San Francisco. San Francisco is a stunningly beautiful city known for its hills, combination of Victorian and modern architecture, and famous sights like Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. The city also has a very famous Chinatown that is among the oldest and most active in North America. Meanwhile, the infamous prison island of Alcatraz awaits the curious, and cruises to Alcatraz are readily available. Travellers can choose to take a city tour to learn more about the city and enjoy a ride over the Golden Gate Bridge.
Travelling down the West Coast toward Los Angeles, home to Hollywood, travellers can enjoy remarkable views while stopping to explore places like Steinbeck’s Monterey, as well as the artists’ paradise of Carmel-by-the-Sea. From Los Angeles, travellers can easily go to picturesque and beautiful San Diego before going across the desert to Las Vegas. There are a few cities across the world that need no introduction, and Las Vegas is one of them. It is a city of spectacle, filled with themed casino hotels and spectacular shows. From there, travellers should not miss the Grand Canyon, an astonishing natural wonder that continues to leave visitors filled with awe and life-long memories.
