From sea to shining sea, the United States has vacation destinations off of every interstate, highway and lonesome road: from ski slopes just outside of the desert to beach shacks next door to metropolitan cities. The most iconic landmarks are just around the corner from the quirkiest and kitschiest roadside attractions. If you’re looking for a holiday that you won’t forget, the United States has a few ideas for you to steal. See the best sights that states like Florida, Colorado, Utah and Hawaii have to offer when you stay at these American villas, all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Villa Marisol, for a Floridian island idyll


Spend your holiday at the end of beautiful Anna Maria Island. Three-bedroom Villa Marisol has panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from the master suite. Though there’s room for ten, no one will fault you for sharing the full sauna with only the one you love the most. The ultimate Florida lifestyle is yours to savor, with an instant jaunt to Bean Point Beach and a nearby fishing site.

2. The Porches of Steamboat Springs, for complimentary snacks in Colorado

Send your envious friends a postcard that says “Greetings from Ski Town, USA!” when you stay at the Porches. Sprawling vacation villas are as rustic and winter-ready as you could dream. Walk inside to find your favorite snacks and meals waiting for you, with your complimentary grocery delivery. Don’t munch too long, though; a private shuttle is waiting to take you to the slopes as soon as you gear up.

3. Arcadia #03, for a national park base in Utah

Santa Clara, Utah, is one of the best places to choose a vacation home in the USA. Not only do these units have enough room to sleep 18 – yes, that means your first, second and third cousins can join – but day trips are also plentiful. Wake up and cook a big breakfast in the full kitchen, then load up the vans for a ride to the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park or Lake Mead. The only problem isn’t having enough room in the house – it’s having enough room for everyone in a selfie.

4. Rat Pack Retreat, for a Californian golfing break


Bring only your kindred souls to this four-bedroom villa in USA’s La Quinta community. Before Joshua Tree National Park calls your crew to rejuvenate their spirits, this home will ask that you kick off your shoes, pop your feet up on the couch and let out a long sigh of relief. You’re on vacation now, so veg in front of the TV, wander into the desert or play a round at PGA West, only a cart ride across the street.

5. Themed Luxury Villa, for a fantasy residence in Florida

Are you looking for ordinary Kissimmee vacation villas? You’ll have to settle for this private home of your wildest fantasies, instead. Themed bedrooms include a magical Harry Potter space for muggles and wizards alike, two Star Wars rooms for Jedi and Sith, and a Batman room. The game room and outdoor pool are just as fun. We’ll admit that we’re a little too enthused about the London-themed loo; you can use it without paying a single penny!

6. Wai'ula'ula A202, for a Hawaiian haven

Do Wai’ula’ula right at this luxurious vacation villa in Hawaii, which you’ve got to see to believe. This three-bed/three-bath house has a resort infinity pool, which won’t get a single splash thanks to the home’s location a 15-minute drive to Mauna Kea Beach. You probably won’t use the other resort amenities, like the spa or golf course, either – there’s just too much sun to soak up on the shoreline. Besides, the ocean views from your master suite may tempt you to never leave the room.

7. The Villas at Coosawattee River Resort, for a cozy getaway in Georgia

Explore Georgia’s mountain wilderness from a cozy vacation villa just outside of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Villas and lodges are available as two- or three-bedroom homes – the third bedroom for that couple who always tag along at the last minute. Relax with a glass of sweet tea and sway on the front porch’s rocking chairs. Bring your rod and reel for the fishing pod or let the resort staff hand you a short putter for a game of miniature golf.

8. Lx10: Lake View Jewel, for a scenic hot tub in Nevada

A massive wall of windows looks over Lake Tahoe, giving you stellar views of the mountains, water and sky, no matter where you lounge in this six-bedroom home. The open-concept living space has more than enough room for 12 to relax in front of the fireplace, in the kitchen or on the balcony adjacent to the dining room. You’ll need to act fast though – there are only a few seats in the lakefront hot tub!

9. Mahi Hideaway by Meyer Vacation Rentals, for an active break in Alabama

You’ll want to keep your holiday spot a secret after you experience life in Alabama’s Gulf Shores. This three-bedroom home is a 12-minute walk from the sugar-white sands of Fort Morgan beach. The screened-in porch is a godsend during the summer, when the ankle-biters try to spoil your sunset cocktails. Hiking and biking trails will get you away from the ping-pong table in the lounge area. If you see clouds in the sky, get as many minutes of tanning by the pool as possible, before the drizzle drops.

10. Cactus Flower by Vtrips, for outdoor living in New Mexico

Embrace the spirit of the Southwest in this Santa Fe vacation rental. More of a desert blossom than a hacienda-style home, it’s romantic for a couple but could sleep four in a pinch. One bedroom, a cozy living space and a full kitchen will act as your own personal desert oasis. Starry skies illuminate the balcony each night. The complex’s outdoor fireplace, gas grills, heated pool and hot tub make it a must-visit for a stay in any season.
