This year's brochure is brimming with options for your North American adventure. Whether you're looking for a cosmopolitan city
break in the Big Apple, the chance to go wild in the Canadian Rockies, or you just want to take to the open road and figure it out
along the way, you'll find it all here! With so much to choose from, I hope you can find the holiday that's just right for you.
With over 25 years of experience we are the experts that you can
trust to make sure that on your Virgin Holiday, you'll be treated like a rock star.
We're particularly delighted to be introducing Texas and Atlantic City as exciting new destinations for 2013. They say 'everything's big'
in Texas, but you can easily experience the best bits in a one-off tailor made itinerary or on one of our amazing self-drive tours.
Whether you're visiting the Alamo in San Antonio or enjoying the vibrant music scene in Austin, you'll find each of the state's cities
offer something a little different to the next. Atlantic City on the other hand is all about fun! It's also just a couple of hours from
New York, so if you want bright lights and Vegas-style casinos, with a shorter flight time, this will be right up your street.
No matter what kind of traveller you are Canada really does have it all. For city buffs there's the vast cultural melting pot of
Toronto. With its many diverse neighbourhoods it's a gourmet's delight. Gorgeous Vancouver, nestled between the coastal
mountains and the Pacific Ocean, is known for having the world's best quality of life. Then there's Quebec City with its treasured
architecture and distinctly French attitude. Montréal, known as Paris on the St Lawrence oozes with sophistication and romance
is always in the air in its quaint cobbled streets.
There's as much activity, experience or relaxation as you want - from beach stays, cruises, city breaks, adventures, fly drive and
escorted tours. Your very own Concierge can take care of everything from private limo transfers and theatre tickets to
helicopter flights over the Grand Canyon or even ranch holidays on horseback.
If you are travelling via Gatwick or Manchester, don't forget to stop by our special Virgin Holidays v-room airport lounges for a
surprisingly zen start to your holiday. It's the place for you and your family to chill before you fly, with a free café and lots of room for
kids to play.
That's why we tell you to "Ask for the World". When it comes to service, and we're talking Rockstar Service here, we wouldn't ask
for anything less.
So what's new for 2013/14?
Prohibition is over people and there's never been a better time to hit the shores of Atlantic City and stroll along the original American boardwalk, in search of: stylish shopping, attraction-packed piers and plenty of glittering casinos.
Renowned as the east coast's answer to Vegas, it's no surprise that AC was the inspiration behind the board game Monopoly and, if you're looking to break the bank and have some fun then this is what it's all about. Atlantic City is regarded as a premier party capital and comedy dens, lounge bars, 24hr gaming and dance-till-dawn clubs will all tempt you from an early start. If you do manage to rise before midday you'll discover a lovely mixture of museums, galleries and gardens scattered around the city to ensure your stay is as fascinating as it's fantastic.
Thanks to the city's shoreline location there are loads of things to do beachside with surfing, fishing and kayaking amongst the excellent alternatives to the glitzy city streets. However you choose to spend your time, there's never been a better place to indulge and from boardwalk favourites, such as pretzels and foot-longs, to gourmet restaurants, featuring everything from steaks to seafood, Atlantic City's got the lot.
Yee-haw! Cowboys, 10-gallon hats, dusty desert landscapes, oil tycoons and the Rio Grande River: They paint only a small yet iconic portion of the picture in Texas. In fact, the nation's second largest state is vast not only in size, but in variety. One thing you are guaranteed is a big-hearted welcome in 'The Lone Star State'.
There is no doubt that if you travel around Texas for long enough you will see hints of the Wild West, but during your holiday you will also see a variety of stunning landscapes that change from dark pine woods, to rolling
hills and sparse beautiful desert. In the cosmopolitan cities it is possible to swap the bright lights for a day on a Texas ranch, or soak up culture at a world-class art gallery before two-steppin' in a 100-year-old dance hall,
or rocking out at the hundreds of live-music venues in the evening. Before we forget Texas also boasts some of the best shopping. All tax-free!
