The USA is not the largest country in the world, and nor is it the most populated. But what is truly unique about it in comparison to other countries is just how varied it is. There are fifty states, and each of them is very much like its own little country. Between states there are different laws, different cultures. You’ll often find that people identify as Texan, Californian or Alabaman before American.
One thing that comes from this is the fact that many Americans take holidays in the USA. Of course, many will go further afield, but some Americans justly point out that there’s really no need to. Why would they, they ask, when there is so much to do within the borders of the USA? Whatever you’re looking for – activity, entertainment, relaxation – there are destinations to check out. And there are also luxury holidays aplenty.

Napa Valley – The Oenophile’s Paradise
