Every now and then we all fancy jetting off somewhere that little bit special. ‘Special’ can mean many different things to different people – perhaps it’s a lavish ski holiday in a five-star Italian chalet. Maybe it’s a fortnight’s cruise of the Caribbean. Or perhaps it’s a fly-drive holiday across the States.
In fact when it comes to USA vacations, this is one of the first destinations that tourists think of when considering a trip somewhere special. Some of the more obvious locations include Las Vegas – that glittering neon-lit city with its own answer to the Eiffel Tower, the canals of Venice and even the Great Sphinx. This place has to be seen to be believed! While you’re here, you might as well go the whole hog and take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, followed by a champagne picnic in the back of beyond. Then there’s Florida, the ultimate family holiday destination, and the jaw-dropping beauty of the Florida Keys. Or if you’re more of a cold weather tourist, why not head to the slopes of Aspen for a lavish ski holiday?
Another exotic holiday favourite is the Dominican Republic. Located in the Caribbean, you’ll be hard pushed to find cheap holidays in Dominican Republic – unless of course you travel during the rainy season. But it’s not generally advisable. Like most Caribbean islands, the Dom Rep is a glorious place of natural beauty; think powder-soft sands, nodding palm trees and sparkling azure waters that glitter under cloudless blue skies. Thatched beach huts sell exotic fruity cocktails and local restaurants serve up delicious fresh cuisine for less than the price of a takeaway coffee back home.
Whatever tickles your fancy, there’s a whole host of exotic holiday destinations out there just waiting to welcome your arrival. Which one will you choose?
