For many individuals, a fly drive holiday is the best of both worlds. By flying to a new destination, you can explore a new culture, take in new scenery, enjoy new types of cuisine and meet brand new people. By having the option to drive, however, you can also explore the open road, enjoy more affordable locations than the major cities surrounding international airports and even see some attractions off the beaten path. Your only problem will be deciding between the countless incredible destinations to choose from. Here are four of the most incredible destinations for a fly and drive holiday in the United States.
Las Vegas, Nevada
In the city that never sleeps, visitors from around the world will get the chance to enjoy the nonstop thrills and excitement of America. Las Vegas, Nevada is a major international hub, meaning that flights come in from countless destinations each day. Spend a few days exploring the incredible city of Las Vegas, enjoy the nightly shows and concert performances, dine on incredible cuisine and then head out in the surrounding area in your car. The Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam are just two of the perfect nearby destinations to drive to while on a fly and drive holiday in the region.
As one of the most popular tourism destinations in the entire United States, it should not come as a surprise to learn that Orlando is also a top stop for fly and drive destinations. Start your family holiday in Orlando, staying at one of the great accommodation options like the Hyatt Place Orlando, Disney’s Polynesian Resort or the Rosen Centre Orlando.
