Year-round sun, tropical nature, unique cultures - there's lots to love about long-haul holidays. And where has more to offer than America? Whether swapping the house for a villa beside Mickey Mouse or zoom calls for New York shopping malls, the USA helps you escape the everyday. That's why some say the only thing better than one US destination is two - and why our multi-centre holidays are more popular than ever...
So, where to first? Read our guide to help decide on your combination of destinations, and learn more about the benefits of multi-centre adventures for 2023 travels.
Better value for money
Two, even three, for the price of one? While you will pay extra for domestic flights, your accommodation costs roughly the same, as you will still be staying for the same amount of time in a hotel. Also, if you have future travels planned in the USA, you’d be spending more money on a long-haul flight, so it's best to combine your top USA holiday spots in one go. So it doesn’t matter if you’re in one place, two or three different locations, the overall cost is small compared to the wealth of new experiences you’ll encounter on a multi-centre holiday.
Excitement is constant
Ever feel like you’ve spent too much time in one destination? There’s nothing worse when the sparkling holiday enthusiasm begins to dull as you’ve exhausted things to do in one location. One way to combat this disappointment is by booking a multi-centre trip, as you’ll have an exciting new city to discover once you’ve fully explored the previous one.
You can venture from Floridian wildlife to the bright light city of Las Vegas or even explore the cowboy charm of the Deep South. The USA has it all. And if you’re feeling torn between city breaks, well, you can actually have it all. It’s your holiday, and our personalised packages let you be as ambitious as you want. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
Top multi-centre holidays
As multi-centre vacations have increased rapidly over the years, we have noticed a trend in our bookings. Ocean Florida's most popular multi-centre vacations are:
New York and Orlando
From shopping 'til you drop to climbing the highest rollercoasters - is any holiday more of a whirlwind than pairing the City That Never Sleeps with the Theme Park Capital of the World? We don’t think so. When Orlando’s tropical weather and theme parks meet New York’s cooler climes and culture, the "best of both worlds" claim is settled. We even wrote a blog dedicated to this twin-centre trip (Click here
to read it). The only downside is you’ll be hard-pressed to see and do everything in both cities during your stay, but you can still have a good go at it.
San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas
We like to call this multi-centre trip The Golden Triangle
. Sun, fun and more sun await you when you pair the Golden State's premier cities with the golden playgrounds of Las Vegas. Picture crossing the celebrated Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, cruising down Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard, and snapping a selfie with the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign. What’s more, these three top-rated USA cities are near to each other, so you’ll spend less time travelling between your destinations and more time hitting the ground running.
Clearwater, Fort Meyers, and Miami
A tale of three cities, you’ll get to experience the best of Florida’s beaches. Award-winning Clearwater Beach
is a paradise on earth with its whispering white sand, deep turquoise seascape, and tropical palm trees. Then you’ll head south along the Gulf Coast to Fort Myers
, the gateway to Sanibel and Captiva islands’ blissful bays. Much quieter than Clearwater Beach’s scenic shore, you’ll get to unwind on the uncrowded and tranquil seaside while spotting dolphins in the calm waters. And with your renewed energy, you’ll join the Miami
party, dancing the night away at trendy bars.
Orlando and St. Petersburg
Orlando is a city that just keeps giving. You get unlimited thrills and adventures from Walt Disney World
, Universal Orlando
, SeaWorld Orlando
, and many other exciting parks and attractions. Also, with the Ocean Explorer bundle
, exclusive to Ocean Florida customers who book an Orlando holiday, you have four free experiences to enjoy that add to Orlando’s seemingly never-ending list of fun. So what better way to relax after a thrilling Orlando park-hopping jaunt than lounging on Tripadvisor’s 2021 Number 1 Beach in the USA? Add a notch of culture to your visit at the Salvador Dali Museum, then feast at the world-class restaurant scene in St. Petersburg’s foodie city.
Miami and the Florida Keys
For endless sun, surf, and seaside sunsets, Miami and the Florida Keys multi-centre
break is a winner. It’s the perfect road trip, too, as you drive towards island bliss with the wind in your hair and the playlist on blast. After exploring Miami’s Art Deco scene and soaking up the sunshine, head south towards the Overseas Highway, a 113-mile road connecting Florida Keys’ tropical archipelagoes. From Key Largo, Marathon, to Key West, discover the laid-back charm and island-style living, not to mention tuck into the freshest seafood you’ve ever tasted. Then venture all the way to the Southernmost Point of the Continental USA, where you’re closer to Cuba than America.
