For most families, a holiday in America means a visit to the sunshine state of Florida and, in particular, Orlando. Home of Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld, there is an almost overwhelming array of family-friendly attractions, days out and activities. When it comes to the choice of quality timeshare properties in Florida, what's on offer is equally impressive and so if this is an option your are considering then head over to our dedicated Timeshares in Florida section.
Perhaps the ultimate city break, New York City delivers world-famous sights such as the Statue of liberty, Empire State, Central Park and Brooklyn Bridge. So, how about 7 nights every year here to call your own? The Manhattan Club is brilliantly positioned across the road from Carnergie Hall and just a short walk from the likes of Central Park and Times Square.
Another unique city break, the non-stop entertainment of Las Vegas makes for a vacation where fun and excess are the order of the day. Whilst the glitz and glamour of the strip and casino floors remain, efforts to diversify the entertainment in recent years mean that almost every want is catered for here. For example, 'Dig This' is a five-acre giant sandbox where instead of making sandcastles you can take to the wheel of a bulldozer! Amongst the most popular resorts here are Marriott's Grand Chateau, The Elara and the Grand View Las Vegas.
Whilst the slopes of Europe are within easy reach for those seeking a skiing holiday, for those prepared to travel that little bit further, Colorado and the Rocky Mountains have some excellent skiing which in recent years have delivered longer seasons and more reliable snow fall. What's more, in contrast to the compact and bijoux skiing accommodation of Europe, timeshares here are palatial in comparison. For example, west of Denver, the popular ski resort of Breckenridge is home to Marriott's Mountain Valley Lodge where 1 bed units are up to a whopping 910 square feet! Alternatively, check out the RCI Gold Crown resort of Worldmark Steamboat Springs.
The Golden State of California boasts beaches, coastlines and vineyards to rival the world's best and enjoys a great climate almost all year round. For those looking for something close to L.A. check out Marriott's Newport Coast Villas which enjoys an enviable position close to Newport Beach and around an hours drive from downtown L.A. If Palm Springs is more your thing then two Marriott resorts of Shadow Ridge and Desert Springs are available to buy on the resale market at greatly discounted prices.
If you're after something more exotic then how about your own home away from home in Hawaii? Hilton's Waikola Beach on the main island and Marriott's Ko Olina Beach Club on the Island of Oahu are two high quality resorts which are well worth a look.
Timeshare ownership in the USA is, on the whole, very similar to freehold and ownership is confirmed by the issue of a warranty deed. So, for example, even if a resort operates a floating week system, ownership certificated are still likely to display a unit number and week number for administrative purposes. Because of this, transferring the ownership between one owner and another can take a little more time than European resorts.
