Groupon’s Guide To New York
One of the liveliest places in the world, the city that never sleeps has no shortage of action, standing as a year-round destination for globetrotters. Taking pride in its coastal position, at the confluence of Hudson River and the Atlantic Ocean, the metropolitan New York City area consists of five boroughs, with Manhattan being the most famous and Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island following closely behind.
While in the Big Apple, holidaymakers may take a breath of fresh air in the famous Central Park or combine leisurely strolls with shopping sprees in the brightly illuminated Times Square. After admiring the flashing neon and electric lights of the towering skyscrapers from the Empire State Building observatory, travellers may visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a mix of medieval and modern art. After enjoying shows at the Broadway Theatre, tourists may indulge their appetites by tasting the local cheesecake or pizza before returning to the hotel in a typical yellow cab. New York has a humid continental climate, and is influenced by two continental air masses, a warm, humid one from the southwest and a cold, dry one from the northwest. New York autumns are mild, while winters tend to be long and cold, with plenty of snowfall and temperatures below freezing.
Groupon’s Guide To Los Angeles
Known as one of the world’s most creative cities, Los Angeles has become a top US destination for artists, aspiring actors and celebrities. Although the city of Angels is thought to be a movie industry town, it manages to combine a wealth of leisure activities with the quirks and attractions of a big metropolis.
On the Grand Avenue of L.A., tourists may find a cultural corridor filled with trendy bars, high-end shops and restaurants serving a variety of Californian cuisine, inspired by the various cultures blending in this cosmopolitan background. From tacos to non-traditional pizzas the city offers sample dining opportunities, while cold refreshments and water sports may be enjoyed on Venice Beach. When in town, guests may visit the district of Hollywood and capture a snapshot of the world-famous sign or join a celebrity and movie star home tour. In the heart of the district, at the intersection of Hollywood Blvd and Highland Avenue, holidaymakers will find the handprints and footprints of celebrities in the cement courtyard of the Chinese Theatre, Madame Tussaud’s and the Highland Entertainment Complex. Los Angeles has year-round moderate-to-warm weather, with hot and dry summers and an annual high temperature of 22°C.
Groupon’s Guide To Las Vegas
Situated in the Mojave Desert of Southern Nevada, the entertainment capital of the world mesmerises travellers with its mega hotels, casino complexes and fantasy-like environment.
Four decades after its opening, the icon of classic Sin City, Caesar’s Palace still manages to beckon visitors with miles of gold decor, marble columns and copies of Greek and Roman statuary. Between W Sahara Avenue and Desert Inn Road, the Adventuredome allures thrill seekers with its five acres of climate-controlled parkland where waterfalls, animated dinosaurs and rides keep spirits high. Vegas breaks are accompanied by live music and entertainment, and the Strip is the place where popular theatres and bars make for a night to remember.

In autumn, temperatures drop to an average of 28°C in October and 19°C in November, with 80-90% daily sunshine throughout the season.
