Hey DivaGals. Summertime means summer destinations. And some of the best vacations can be taken right in your own backyard if you live in the United States. From sea to shining sea, there’s plenty to enjoy in this great nation. Check out some of our wicked ideas below that will help you enjoy the US in style!

The Big Apple! There’s no place like home. Most of us DivaGals reside in or near New York City, and we just can’t get enough. Indeed, no one can really get a full flavor of the Land of the Free without a visit to its most populous city. Even as an indigenous American you surely can’t say no to a visit to New York City. The Big Apple has so much to offer to just about everyone, with neighborhoods that represent every culture and creed in the world. The biggest question you’ll have is where to start! Right off the bat, we NYC natives can tell you that Times Square, Central Park, The Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty are must sees. You can feel the solemness of NYC with a visit to Ground Zero, our testament that as Americans, we never give up. You can get your shopping on on Fifth Ave. But this is barely scratching the surface of what NYC has to offer. Check out several of our New York City restaurant stories to try a new cuisine spot, and visit The Main Event often to relive some of our wildest adventures in this five borough mecca.

Go on a Road Trip. If you really want to do the US in style, rev up for hybrid and hit the road! A road trip is a great way experiencing your vacation experience, one mile at a time. That can make it a lot more fun than just flying over a place. The DivaGals have taken a California road trip. It really was an ideal way to really see the best of America’s west coast. Drive down the West coast of California, and make sure you stop off in places like San Francisco, Santa Monica, Malibu and other iconic California cities while en route.

Hit The Slopes. Believe it or not, there are plenty of areas in the U.S. where you can ski. What better way to stay active while you travel. There are so many amazing places to enjoy skiing, like Boulder and Aspen , Colo., and Lake Tahoe, Nev. And what about Utah, one of the states best known for its ski resorts. You can stay in a Park City vacation rentals, so you feel like you’re staying in the privacy of a home. And yes, you CAN ski in the U.S. in the summer. Check out these North American destinations that offer skiing from June to October!

See The Grand Canyon. We’ll admit, this is one U.S. vacation on our bucket list. When you think about important icons and places in the nation, there are few more important than the Grand Canyon. This is one of the most amazing natural sites on the planet, and an important symbol of Americana. Take a trip to Arizona and take a guided tour of The Grand Canyon. You can fly over in a plane or helicopter and really get a feel for just how wonderful the Grand Canyon truly is. It might even be worth staying in Grand Canyon National Park for a while and enjoying the surroundings that include the Colorado River too.

The USA has so many amazing places that many people living here have never seen. If you want to do the US in style, you need to see all that the country has to offer. Start Big (Apple) and make your way to every corner and cranny. Happy exploring!
