Groupon’s Guide To New York
One of the liveliest places in the world, the city that never sleeps has no shortage of action, standing as a year-round destination for globetrotters. Taking pride in its coastal position, at the confluence of Hudson River and the Atlantic Ocean, the metropolitan New York City area consists of five boroughs, with Manhattan being the most famous and Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island following closely behind.
While in the Big Apple, holidaymakers may take a breath of fresh air in the famous Central Park or combine leisurely strolls with shopping sprees in the brightly illuminated Times Square. After admiring the flashing neon and electric lights of the towering skyscrapers from the Empire State Building observatory, travellers may visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a mix of medieval and modern art. After enjoying shows at the Broadway Theatre, tourists may indulge their appetites by tasting the local cheesecake or pizza before returning to the hotel in a typical yellow cab.
Groupon’s Guide To San Francisco
Located on the West Coast of the United States, San Francisco City represents the cultural centre of Northern California. Brimming with a choice of eccentric museums such as the Museum of Modern Art or the Museum of the African Diaspora, from the historical prison of Alcatraz and Fisherman’s Wharf to more science-oriented institutions such as the Exploratorium, the city offers a variety of cultural activities.
Golf enthusiasts may take advantage of San Francisco’s six municipal golf courses, while active types may walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, a three-mile-long bridge that links San Francisco to Marin County. International or regional dishes may be sampled while in town, such as abalone, Dungeness crab, sand dabs, bay shrimp and crusty sourdough French bread, while many local restaurants serve a 1930s dish made using a mix of ground beef, spinach and eggs.

Known as one of the world’s most creative cities, Los Angeles has become a top US destination for artists, aspiring actors and celebrities. Although the city of Angels is thought to be a movie industry town, it manages to combine a wealth of leisure activities with the quirks and attractions of a big metropolis.
On the Grand Avenue of L.A., tourists may find a cultural corridor filled with trendy bars, high-end shops and restaurants serving a variety of Californian cuisine, inspired by the various cultures blending in this cosmopolitan background. From tacos to non-traditional pizzas the city offers sample dining opportunities, while cold refreshments and water sports may be enjoyed on Venice Beach. When in town, guests may visit the district of Hollywood and capture a snapshot of the world-famous sign or join a celebrity and movie star home tour. In the heart of the district, at the intersection of Hollywood Blvd and Highland Avenue, holidaymakers will find the handprints and footprints of celebrities in the cement courtyard of the Chinese Theatre, Madame Tussaud’s and the Highland Entertainment Complex.

Situated in the Mojave Desert of Southern Nevada, the entertainment capital of the world mesmerises travellers with its megahotels, casino complexes and the fantasy-like environment.

Between W Sahara Avenue and Desert Inn Road, the Adventuredome allures thrill-seekers with its five acres of climate-controlled parkland where waterfalls, animated dinosaurs and rides keep spirits high. Vegas breaks are accompanied by live music and entertainment, and the Strip is the place where popular theatres and bars make for a night to remember.
