Make a holiday rental in North America your home away from home

North America is the world’s third-largest continent and, as scores of travellers will attest, boasts a unique collection of attractions to rival the most exotic locations in the world. Three water masses kiss its shores; the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and the Caribbean Sea, creating fabulous beaches that are a haven for sunbathers, surfers, divers and other kinds of thrill-seekers. Also within the 29 million square metres of this land are plenty of diverse species of flora and fauna. History buffs will have plenty of captivating monuments and museums full of interesting artefacts to quench their curiosity. HomeAway furnishes visitors to this part of the world with an incredible range of holiday accommodation options to make their stay comfy and peaceful. Mountain cabins and chalets, apartments with jaw-dropping views over the Caribbean, even luxurious yachts are just a few of the holiday rentals available to holidaymakers. There are conveniences such as barbecues, swimming pools and Internet access to make them feel right at home.

Things to do

-National parks: There are many patches of land segregated to the protection of North America’s biodiversity. The Lassen Volcanic National Park in California is one of them. It is endowed with dense pine forests and snow-capped mountains, the ideal setting for exhilarating hikes and camping. Naturists and hikers will also love Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada for its mirror-like lakes and stunning peaks. White-water rafting is one of many outdoor activities possible there.

-Amusement parks: Anyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows about the Disneyland theme parks that are now virtually global. Disney World in Florida is one of the most fascinating of these parks and where holidaymakers will want to take their children come summer. Visitors could alternatively head to Los Angeles which is home to the Universal Studios. Here they’ll get to tour the sets of some of their favourite Hollywood productions.

-Beaches: Made popular by American TV shows and movies, Hawaii is the place most everyone sees in their minds when dreaming of the perfect holiday. Millions of sun-worshippers flock to popular beaches such as Waikiki to soak up the rays and participate in surfing, swimming and other water sports. America’s coastline also boasts a rich diversity of marine life some of which can be seen up-close in marine adventure parks such as SeaWorld in San Diego.

-Museums: Those thinking museums are just huge, cold halls housing dusty volumes and skeletons should pay a visit to the world famous American Museum of Natural History. It contains an interesting collection of artefacts and displays that tell the evolution story from when the earth began millions of years ago to where we are today. Visitors fascinated by dinosaurs will have a wealth of fossils to peruse while the kids can be kept busy with special programmes designed for their education and entertainment.

-Animal parks and zoos: One doesn’t have to travel to Africa to get a feel of its jungles and the masses of wildlife therein. Holidaymakers can simply pay a visit to the Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida where they can feast their eyes and camera lenses on more than 2,700 animals. There are shows arranged for the enlightenment of tourists and hunger pangs can be appeased with the tantalizing offerings of the park’s restaurants.

Winters here can get extreme, with lows of up to -29°C being recorded on occasion.

Those headed to Canada can book flights to the country’s busiest airport, the Toronto Pearson International Airport or the Vancouver International Airport which receives direct flights from Europe, Asia and other parts of North America daily. Holidaymakers headed for the Big Apple and its environs will want to book a flight that touches down at the famous John F. Kennedy International Airport. The Benito Juarez International Airport is the facility visitors headed to holiday homes in Mexico will likely use.
