If in search of extra luxury in the form of exclusive adventures, here is a list of 10 luxury experiences to experience while travelling in the USA.

1. The French Laundry, Yountville

A flagship American restaurant consistently awarded three Michelin stars since 2005, Napa Valley’s finest is a wonderful place for a luxury dining experience.

3. Jean Georges, New York

Jean Georges is another Michelin-starred establishment, famous for delicacies such as foie gras brulee and seared scallops. There is a fine wine cellar – the wine list runs to 27 pages – and the service is impeccable; staff are genuinely helpful and interested in their customers.

4. The Lodge at Woodloch, Pennsylvania

An extremely pleasurable experience, the luxurious health spa at Woodloch offers a chance to relax and enjoy beauty treatments and fitness classes in stunning surroundings; calming greenery, water features, and opulent comfort in the rooms are all part of the package.

5. Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas

Unusual, themed swimming pools with stunning views are essential these days, and the hotels in Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, have the design of luxury pools down to a fine art. Personal favorites are hotels at the south end of the Strip, which are connected by a monorail link, and feature water complexes and superb restaurants and casinos.

6. Olympic Valley, California

Fans of winter sports will find that Olympic Valley offers skiing, snowmobiling, skating and sledding activities in abundance. Vacationers can luxuriate in the hot tubs, even as they watch the snow falling around them, or enjoy a relaxing morning spa at the resort at Squaw Creek, followed by a great lunch.

7. Disney Cruise Line

Taking a floating hotel vacation offers a unique experience, as the luxury suites, great restaurants, pools, theaters and attractions are all under one roof. The favorite family trips in North America via the Disney Cruise Line are great fun for the kids – free call from Mickey Mouse included.

8. Loews New Orleans Hotel, Louisiana

Near the Arts and the French Quarters, the hotel has an excellent restaurant, an award-winning chef and a marvelous Art Deco bar, where the cocktails are rightly famous. Spa, pool and fitness center have all been sampled here and declared superb.

9. Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, Connecticut

Harking back to bygone days, the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance “Americana” collection is an array of extraordinary antique, classic and vintage cars and motorcycles, dating from 1903 to about 1958. It can be certified that many owners dress up in the costume relevant to their vehicle to add a little fun to the high-class proceedings.

10. The US Supercar Tour

At the other end of the spectrum, getting behind the wheel of a luxury car has to be one of the most satisfying road trips in existence. This one involves 60 miles of driving no less than five ‘supercars’, including a Bentley, Ferrari and Lamborghini, and is available in major cities across the United States. The Ferrari was most impressive.
