Top Cities in the USA to visit

The USA has a fabulous variety of cities to choose from, all of them having their own characteristics. 

When I think of America I immediately jump from one iconic image another, thanks to the pro-USA movie business; The Golden Gate bridge (The Bridge, 2006), the Statue of Liberty (X-men, 2000), the Empire State building (An Affair to Remember, 1957), the White House (Independence Day, 1996), or Caesar’s Palace (The Hangover, 2009); and that’s just to name a few.

Los Angeles

Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Sunset Boulevard and Venice Beach – these are all must visit places for any holiday to America’s West coast, and all of them are found in Los Angeles. It truly is paradise for anyone who wants to soak up the sun and enjoy a little bit of luxury while they are at it. If you like to indulge in a bit of partying, check out famous hot-spots like the Viper Room and the House of Blues. Films set in LA include Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), Iron Man 2 (2010) and Fast and Furious (2009).


Miami is the ultimate hot-spot for tourists who want a little sun worshipping. As America’s Riviera, there is 10 miles of wide white sandy beaches, sublime art deco architecture, trendy boutique hotels, exclusive restaurants and a party scene unrivalled anywhere in the world. Films that were set in Miami include: Meet the Fockers (2004), The Godfather Part II (1974) and Some Like It Hot (1959).

Las Vegas

If you thought LA was going to be glitzy, you’ve not seen anything yet. Las Vegas is like nowhere on earth and is an absolute must see. It’s a haven for those who like a flutter, but even if gambling isn’t you’re thing there’s something for everyone in Vegas. Here you can stay in luxury hotels, enjoy golf, dine in top restaurants, visit one of the many spas or even get married by Elvis. Vegas is also perfectly situated to visit the Grand Canyon, Red Rock and Death Valley if you'd like to escape the strip and explore. Films set in Vegas include What Happens in Vegas (2009), Rush Hour 2 (2001) and Rain Man (1988).

San Francisco

San Fran may have changed a lot since the swinging 60’s, but the city still retains much of its alternative charm. You can enjoy a trolley car up the cities unique hills, gaze at the astonishing views created by the stunning blue of the bay and eye-catching golden gate bridge, and enjoy great cuisine in the lively Fisherman’s Wharf and beautiful China Town. Films that were set in San Francisco include: The Social Network (2010), Terminator Salvation (2009) and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).

New York

From the magnificent Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the yellow city cabs and the Brooklyn Bridge, to cocktails on the Upper East Side and of course not forgetting Central Park. New York has it all.

Did you know? The Thieving Hand movie, 1908 was the first movie to be filmed in New York.
