 You might have been thinking about going to the US for a holiday – and why not? Whether it’s a road trip, a jolly around New York, or a crazy-exciting holiday to Orlando’s theme parks, they’re all guaranteed to be super fun. It’s just there’s one big headache that comes about when you’re planning these trips…actually getting there. There’s the hassle of packing your luggage, dealing with the paperwork, wondering exactly how many coffees you’ll need to deal with the jetlag (or for the adventurous among us, finding out what is the absolute maximum amount of caffeine a human body can tolerate before, presumably, it just implodes).

There’s plenty of fun things to do in the hippy city of Flagstaff. The city is nestled in the stunning red rock scenery of northern Arizona and offers activities through both summer and winter.

Flagstaff is at a much higher elevation than Phoenix and Tucson, so has a much greener environment with lots of forests and grasslands.

The area is considerably colder than its fellow Arizonan cities, so you should pack some long sleeves and trousers!

The city is around a 4-hour drive north from Tucson and a 2.5-hour drive North of the state capital, Phoenix.

There’s also plenty of fun things to do in Flagstaff, you just need someone to write about them for you…

Travelling is often a fierce and unwavering passion for some. They enjoy the thrill of seeing a new location, visiting a different country, or indulging in a new culture. Some people have a bucket list that they like to tick off as and when they visit one of those dream destinations. A bucket list is a pretty common thing to have these days, filled not only with travel ideas but also any experience, from eating in a Michelin starred restaurant through to swimming with dolphins. However, if we are honest, many bucket lists can be quite generic and it seems that people are lacking imagination when it comes to devising their own.

We’re so clued into their TV, their movies, even their news and politics that we think we know everything we need to and will fit in like a hand into a glove once we arrive. Yet when people visit, they often feel woefully out of the loop and realise that there’s SO much more to the states than what we see on MTV or Sky News. Before you go, there are a few things you need to remember that will definitely help you acclimatise.

The hike to Devil’s Bridge in Sedona is short and relatively easy one with epic scenic rewards that are rare to find anywhere else.

As one of the main attractions in the area, Devil’s Bridge in Sedona has built up quite a reputation. The hike has some of the best scenic spots that come with some great photo opportunities.

The Devil’s Bridge is a red rock arch that has been eroded over millions of years by wind and weather.

The bridge looks like its going to collapse at any second due to all the cracks.

However, I’ve been told it’ll be there for a few thousand years to come. Lets hope they’re right!

A lot of stuff happened in Heavenly Village, South Lake Tahoe whilst we were there; I lost my drone and a GoPro to the wilderness, we tasted the best pizza in the world (Jeremy Clarkson voice), we were nearly blown away by the ferocious winds on the lake shores and we skied in some of the best skiing conditions on planet earth – it was memorable to say the least!

Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America – and you have to travel there.
