When you think of the US, vast natural parks, quirky towns and buzzing cities come to mind. America certainly has plenty of variety, whatever you’re looking for in a holiday – and the beauty is that you can do it all without venturing much farther than your nearest state line. From the quiet banks of the Hudson River to the wilderness of Alaska, here’s our pick of cool US places to book with TRIPS by Culture Trip.
1 . Utah and Colorado, for canyons, craters and cold beer

When it comes to cool vacation spots in the US, you may sometimes want to go off-road – and not least in Utah and Colorado. The Moab canyonlands and Rocky Mountains hold treasures throughout, from hot springs to rushing rivers and amazing mountainside vistas. It would take years to discover every inch of these serene landscapes – but you can see the famed Arches National Park, geothermal Strawberry Hot Springs and supernatural sunsets on this week-long trek through Colorado and Utah.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel – and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Bespoke Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Bespoke Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm – and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
