Reasons to visit the USA

view of sign on mount hollywood usa

Hooray for Hollywood

Instantly recognisable across the world, the famous hilltop Hollywood sign is not quite a hidden gem – after all, each crisp white letter stands more than 40 feet tall. The sign may be unmissable from the valley below, but the view is even better from above.

You’ll also want to head to the Griffith Observatory for some of the best lookout spots in town, while for another classic Hollywood experience, see the stars on the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard.

The buzz of Times Square

This lively hub is more than just a great spot for a photograph. Times Square sits in the heart of New York City’s Theatre District, so don’t leave before catching a Broadway show.
