The Great Outdoors Self Drive - Hotel - Standard Car SummaryAdd to Shortlist
With iconic sights like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Lombard Hill, The Castro and Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco is one of the world's most visited cities.
If heaven descended to Earth, it would probably look like Yosemite. One of America's most popular national parks, its waterfalls, dramatic cliffs and wilderness areas are breathtaking.
Rich in oil and an agricultural powerhouse, Bakersfield is a typical American city which is currently in a state of rapid growth.
To witness the roll of the dice, the brightness of the lights and the general ostentatiousness of Las Vegas is a quintessential American experience.
Zion National Park showcases soaring canyons, impressive hiking trails and beautiful waterways, all coloured by the mesmerising pink-, red- and white-hued rocks that the park is famous for.
Controversially created in the 1960s, Lake Powell is now a popular holiday destination, consisting of 96 water-filled canyons, 3,150 km of shoreline and endless red-hued canyon walls.
Words don't do justice to the Grand Canyon, a stunning 1.5 km deep gorge formed by over six million years of erosion from the Colorado River.
Owing its worldwide fame to U2, the Joshua Tree National Park lies within the Mojave and Colorado deserts and is striking for its rock formations and incredible night skies.
Stars, surf, superficiality and sunshine - Los Angeles is a bold, sprawling city with a pronounced swagger and a surprising amount of charm.
