The Destinations Virgin Atlantic have on offer:
New York is often referred to as the capital of the world. The City That Never Sleeps is welcoming and full of exciting experiences. Take a stroll through Greenwich Village, watch open air theatre in Central Park and catch a show on Broadway. At night, go to the top of the Empire State Building or one of the many skybars the city has to offer, to take in the spectacular New York City skyline. If you're looking for something a bit more off the beaten track, we can recommend the High Line and the Brooklyn Flea.
Boston is world famous for its educational institutions and its food. Eat like the locals and try the Boston Clam Chowder, visit one of the many historical buildings and learn about the history of pilgrims at the city's museum. Boston is one of America's most historic cities, so if you are interested in the history of New England, this is a great place to visit.
Looking for the lap of luxury? Los Angeles in to only home to the world's movie stars but also has a rich and varied culture. There are many delightful Mexican restaurants and businesses in the city, that set LA apart from the rest of the US. Take the cablecar up to visit The Getty Museum, home to some of the finest art in the world. Shop on Rodeo Drive, where you will find all the best high-end retailers. When the day is done, you can take a stroll down to the beach or Santa Monica Pier. LA has it all.
The Windy City is famous for its street food and theatre culture. Here you will find the most theatres in the US outside of Manhattan. Many comedy troupes have their headquarters in Chicago, such as Second City, where a lot of SNL stars have been sourced from. Also the home of Oprah Winfrey and many world renowned restaurants.
San Francisco is the epitome of Californian sunshine. The Golden Gate Bridge is a world famous, as is the Castro district, made famous by Harvey Milk and other gay rights activists. San Francisco bay offers beautiful views and is home to rich wildlife, including sealions. For an alternative experience, take the ferry to Alcatraz and see the world's most famous prison. Other activities we recommend are taking the tram up the steep hills that San Francisco is famous for.
Visit Washington, the US capital, and experience the history of the nation. The National Mall has more museums on one strip than anywhere else in the US. Pay a trip to The White House (pictured), and see how Obama lives.
