5 luxurious things you should try while you’re Stateside

The United States of America is home to some of the world’s most exciting, most luxurious experiences. Across this huge, diverse country, it’s hard to choose just a handful of things which you should incorporate into your holiday, but these five are a good place to start. Here are 5 luxurious things you should try while you’re in the US:

Stroll around the boutiques of New York City

Shopping, shopping, shopping. People still fly halfway around the world to do nothing more than visit the Big Apple’s shops. There’s something here from everyone, from the classic department stores of Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s to the high-octance glamour of Fifth Avenue and the stylish boutiques of historic Williamsburg. In SoHo, there are a lot more independent and unusual stores – where you’ll see the younger generations shopping for the latest trends. The cobblestone streets and historic architecture make this an enjoyable place to stroll and shop.

Roll dice on the Las Vegas Strip

Las Vegas is the world’s centre for excess. Everyone comes here to experience it first-hand, blow off some steam and act like a teenager again. The hotels are magnificent, the array of events is astounding, the dancing girls are beautiful, and it’s a definite bucket list tick-box to throw a die on the blackjack table at the MGM Grand. Step carefully and get a bit of luck, and might leave richer than you arrived. But, let’s face it, probably not.

Catch a seaplane to The Hamptons

The rich and the beautiful of New York City descend on The Hamptons for their dose of summer seaside action each year, and it’s a great place to spend the warmer New England months in style. Travel in comfort and arrive in style by booking a flight on The Standard Highline hotel’s seaplane direct to the beach. It’s just a forty minute flight, after which you can enjoy beach parties and sundown cocktails to your heart’s delight.

Sail through the Florida Keys

Trailing off the tip of the Florida peninsula towards the Caribbean, the Keys are a magnet for fairweather yachting enthusiasts. It’s a lovely part of the USA, with the warmth of the Gulf Stream and the trade winds giving them a tropical climate and ideal sailing weather. If you know what you’re doing, then hire a yacht of your own, but otherwise go on a sail cruise around the islands. Most of the marinas are very luxurious, surrounded by gold courses, elegant restaurants and bars.

Party with the jetset in Miami

After a day spent on the beach or wandering the various art galleries and museums, you’ll want to get down with the locals in the city’s phenomenal restaurants, bars and clubs. However hot the day has been, the night will be hotter. Miami nightlife has a strong Latino flavour and a heavy dose of luxe. Bamboo on Washington Avenue is awash with crystal chandeliers, celebrities, and state-of-the-art sound systems. But for the beachside experience, head to Clevelander South Beach, where a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces with pools, cabanas and bars take partygoers through the night.
