As its name suggests, in ‘the Land of Opportunity’ you’ll never be short of things to do or places to see.

Crammed with hundreds of thriving cities, relaxing beaches, stunning national parks and picturesque drives, there are many popular locations for car hire in the USA.

West Coast vs East Coast

West America

With beautiful national parks and vibrant cultural hubs, the West Coast is known for its laid-back vibe and picturesque scenery. Here are some of the most popular places to visit if you opt for car hire in America.

San Francisco – home to many young creatives, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Instagram-worthy Alamo Square Park.

Los Angeles – the land of endless summers and home to the rich and famous. LA features the iconic Hollywood sign and the lovely Santa Monica Pier.

Portland – known as one of the ‘hippiest’ cities of the US, where artists, liberalists and musicians gather.

East America

The East Coast offers everything from beautiful beaches to intricate architecture. An advantage of the East Coast is that the major cities are closer to each other, allowing you to see more in a shorter period.

New York – one of the most visited cities in the world, its long list of must-see sights include Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Broadway and the Empire State Building.

Washington DC – as the US capital, Washington DC is home to the White House, the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol Building.

Miami – for a beach break, there’s nothing like Miami Beach, which offers one some of the best nightlife in the world.

Washington DC

The White House vs The Capitol Building

If you rent a car in Washington DC, the two sites that are a must-see are the White House and The Capitol Building. Surprisingly enough, the two are often confused.

The White House is world-renowned and recognised by its characteristic white pillars and an American flag. Since 1800, it has been home to various US presidents and their staff. It is free to tour the White House, however, you have to apply for tickets months in advance.

The Capitol Building is a little easier to get inside – you can book a tour. This building is home to the United States Congress and looks similar to the White House. It’s not surprising people get them mixed up, as it’s just 13 minutes down the road.
