You can reach anywhere in the world from the airports of the United States, with a huge list of both short and long-haul destinations. Travelling internationally on flights of about two to six hours can have you seeing the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza near the Mexican coastal town of Cancun (CUN), or indulging in poutine along the Old Port of Montreal (YUL) in Canada.

Long-haul flights can take you to popular southern hemisphere destinations, like the stunning city of Sydney (SYD) in Australia, home of the Opera House, the Darling Harbour Bridge, and a whole host of museums, galleries and entertainment venues. Or stay in the northern hemisphere, and head to the Old World by flying to cities in Europe, like the romantic city of Paris (CDG), where you can stroll along the Seine and see some of the city’s most incredible landmarks, like the Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower.  

If you’d rather stay close to home, there are plenty of cities you can travel to within the United States.
