I’ve been there five times, to quite a few places (parents love it). New York City, Washington D.C, Cali (San Francisco, Yosemite and Monterey), Georgia, South Carolina, Connecticut and Florida. In terms of the variety of places to visit on a holiday, not sure there is anywhere better in the world. But if I had to pick a country to live in, it wouldn’t be in my top ten.

There's no heirs and graces about them which is what I love.

Apart from my boy and The Palace, this country's got nothing for me anymore.
Have you ever considered if you offer anything back in return?

Holland, not the greatest, but a candidate for the best maybe. Art, literature, prostitutes, weed, mushrooms and some cracking beers.

It crossed my mind once and then I realised I'd given it more than my fair share.

It’s got its problems & the people can be a bit crass and nauseating, but also has some huge advantages over the UK. As somebody else said, the main thing is that it is so vast and diverse- there is so much to chose from. That & the fact that if you are young, free & single, the woman are beautiful and you have a head start by virtue of being English. I've been 3 times, most recently went on a long holiday from coast to coast visiting 6 cities, and on the whole I love the place. I would love to have lived there- probably in either San Francisco or New York or maybe Boston. But at 34 I have too many ties here now. If I could have my time again, I would’ve gone in my 20s and done a few years- it’s a huge regret in my life that I didn’t- and that I’ve lived my life in such a ludicrously small radius.

Lived and worked in Louisiana on and off for a few years. Really loved it and seriously considered moving there for a hot minute.

Now I wouldn't take a shit in the place.

My cousins who were born and bred Buffallonians (Go Bills) have now all moved down to Texas. Fort Worth, Dallas and Galveston. Went there when I was living in Bermuda for Xmas. Had a deep fried turkey in peanut oil. Very nice it was too

When they have 6 feet of snow, ice and blizzards in January, I'm not sure this is true.

I can think of very few less hospitable looking places in winter.

(Disclaimer: I've never actually been there!)

Lived in UK for 40 years, Melbourne for 3 and am currently doing some work in Orange County California (traveling around a fair bit) been here 9 months. I will be going back to Melbourne at the first opportunity. USA is great for a holiday but no more, the glitz of the place soon wears off when you live here.

Newport Beach no less. Don't come much nicer than that.

Having said that I was going there quite a bit a few years back for work, but it was to an industrial center which could have been anywhere!

Another time my wife and I booked a weekend in "Newport Beach", but the hotel ended up being alongside John Wayne Airport... not exactly the beach!

Been living in San Diego for past 5 years. Expensive but the best place I have ever lived.

Where would the best place be to go on holiday in the USA (not Orlando) as a single dad with two teenage daughters? Fly drive or something.
