After spending months indoors it’s time to plan your Easter holidays and get away from it all with a break. Whether you want to spend the Easter holidays in the US with the family, as a couple, or with friends, there are so many activities to choose from. Why not hire a car and explore some of the wonderful attractions the US has to offer?
Spend your US Easter holidays in nature
Go camping in the Rocky Mountains
The Rocky Mountains are a great place for Easter family breaks. Get back to nature and pitch your tent or rent a mobile home in one of the many campgrounds of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Set up camp on the shores of the beautiful Colorado River and go hiking in the stunning landscape of this alpine wonder. The kids will love the park at Easter when snow is often still on the ground and they can ski, sled, and snowboard.
Immerse yourself in the landscape of Yellowstone National Park
If you’re not sure what to do for Easter, take a trip to Yellowstone and discover the secrets of this immense national park. You’ll need a car to make the most of your trip as there is so much to see. Search for wildlife, dine on the shores of the lake, camp in the forest, or go fishing. You’ll also be able to see the geysers that sit just 2 meters above the magma chamber. This constant volcanic activity under the park is a sight to behold. You can also relax in hot springs and at night just sit and gaze at the stars and ponder the wonder of this magical setting.
Get back to nature in the Sierra Nevada
If you love mountains and walking, the Sierra Nevada is ideal for an outdoor adventure at Easter. Perfect for a couple’s getaway during the Easter break, the wilds of the Sierra Nevada offer some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in the US. Escape the tourists and get close to nature in the Sierra Nevada this Easter. Try something you’ve never done before, such as skiing, snowboarding, or paddleboarding on Lake Tahoe if the water’s warm enough.
Visit the fun and party cities
Florida is perfect for a long weekend Easter getaway. There’s so much to pack in for all the family so be sure to plan ahead. Whether you’re looking for the fun of the Orlando theme parks or to lie on a white sandy beach on a romantic short break, Florida has the best of both worlds. With plenty of warm sunshine year-round, Florida is a great vacation destination.
Take a trip to Las Vegas
An Easter break in Las Vegas is ideal if you like to party. This vibrant city is alive with the sound of slot machines, casinos, and people having fun. Go designer shopping, dine in a stylish restaurant then take in a show before hitting a cocktail bar. Need a day away from the neon lights? If you have a hire car why not take a road trip out to Death Valley and the iconic Grand Canyon?
Fall in love with the big cities of the US
Explore the fast-paced city of New York
If you love the buzz of the city and the bright lights then choose New York for your Easter break. You’ll find plenty of things to do in the city that never sleeps. Your first stop should be the Empire State Building, where you can see the amazing skyline that spreads for miles. Central Park is another ‘must-see’ even if only to escape the bustle and crowds for a while. Times Square has to be on your list too, just to say you’ve been. Next, the historic Statue of Liberty is on the agenda, which is best viewed from the ferry that regularly sails from Manhattan or New Jersey.
Go sightseeing in Washington DC
Washington is the capital of the USA and boasts some magnificent buildings. From the White House, the Washington Monument, and the US Capitol building, the city’s architecture is fascinating. This is a cosmopolitan city where you can find outdoor markets, parks to picnic in as well as the many monuments. Discover the collections of Smithsonian Museums, where you can learn about history, science, art, and culture – – all for free. You can easily spend a day here with the kids and there will still have more to see.
Easter is the ideal time to take a short break to recharge your batteries. Spring has arrived and with it comes the chance to explore the US at Easter.
