USA has been the number one destination for Au Pairs in the last years. This country is so big that it even has different times depending on which part of the country you are in.
Another thing that makes the USA so special is its enormous multicultural environment. People from different parts of the world migrated to the country long time ago and today many Americans claim to be Italian American, Mexican American etc.
The city that never sleeps! Being an Au Pair in New York can be for sure an unforgettable experience.
Become an Au Pair in New York
New York has a lot of places to visit. Yes, NYC is expensive, but you can find a lot of cheap plans in this amazing city (and New Jersey or Long Island are not far).
While taking a walk through the Soho (close to Chinatown and Little Italy) you will find lots of outlets to buy new clothes. If you want to have nice views of the city you will think of visiting the Empire State or seeing Manhattan from the Brooklyn Bridge, but you can also get nice views from one of the rooftops in New York.
We know this city has a lot to offer, and as an Au Pair you’re afraid you won’t have enough time if you have to take care of the kids. Why don’t you just take them to Central Park? That way you will be able to work and enjoy the place at the same time.
Maybe the idea of pushing a baby cart up those hills looks intimidating. Just get in one of the famous cable cars of San Francisco and don’t worry!
Besides this city has much more things to see for those who want to be Au Pair in San Francisco.
First of all, you will be in California. Los Angeles, Santa Monica or San Diego should be taken into consideration if you plan to travel. If you rather want to stay in San Francisco, the Pier 39 is a nice place to take the kids with you, and see the sea lions sunbathing on the pier.
Do you like history? A guide tour to the prison of Alcatraz can be good plan for you. Of course don’t forget to take a selfie at the Golden Gate Bridge! You will probably show it to your family, friends, and basically every person who ask you about your time as an Au Pair in ‘Frisco.
You can also take a walk with other friends and Au Pairs by the Freedom Trail (it will be nice way of spending your free time).
Boston is also where the prestigious Harvard university settles. Boston has a lot of museums to visit and the incredible New England Aquarium, too. This city has a lot of activities that every Au Pair can do in the free time.
And what about joining the Saint Patrick’s celebration during your stance as Au Pair? No doubt Boston is a nice place to live in.
Welcome to Miami, Bienvenido a Miami. Au Pairing in Miami is what you need if you want sunny weather and be close to the sea. Just go to Miami Beach, and get tanned with the other Au Pairs, or go to the Everglades and take pictures of the huge alligators that inhabit there.
Become an Au Pair in Miami
If you really want to have fun with the kids while you’re working, go with your host family to Disney World!
In Miami you will be able to feel like being an Au Pair in Cuba if you visit Little Havana. Two countries in one city? That is right!
Do you come from an European country and miss your culture? Don’t be sad and visit the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens and its collection of European works from the 16th to the 19th century.
Au Pairing in Miami can be a great experience when you like multicultural places.
Au Pair in Washington D.C.
An Au Pair in the White House? Probably not, but a tour to visit the President’s house can be a good charm to be an Au Pair in Washington D.C.
The city is full of historic monuments like the Lincoln memorial. A picture with the kids and your host family in front of such a statue might be a nice memory for your album.
Au Pairing in Washington D.C. can also turn into a very educative experience. It is the perfect place to take the kids during your working hours with you, and learn with them about the American History.
A city of culture and cultures! And when we say this we are also referring to the gastronomy. Enjoy the weekend with your friends and have a ‘khachapuri’, a Georgian (the country) dish on the 114th Street, or enjoy a delicious Taiwanese food at Toki Underground.
Howdy partner! Situated in Texas, this city is one of the most important ones in the state. Become an Au Pair in San Antonio and you will live the whole cowboy experience in the city where the cowboy culture emerged.
What about San Antonio?
But don’t you think San Antonio is only horses and people wearing a hat. San Antonio is full of places to see and to visit.
In the San Antonio’s River Walk you will enjoy the views of this peaceful place, and throughout the way there are lots of restaurants and attractions. San Antonio is also very influenced by the Spanish culture, and places like the San Antonio Missions Historical Park or the Alamo are worth seeing.
If you feel like an explorer Au Pair, then go to the San Antonio’s Natural Bridge Caverns or get lost in its botanical garden. There are a lot of museums to visit as well, including a museum just made for kids!
Au Pair in New Orleans
What’s that? Is it the sound of Jazz and Blues music? Au Pairing in New Orleans can be an attractive idea. There are a lot of tourist attractions in this city and all of them are close to the French Quarter.
New Orleans belonged to France in the past so don’t be surprised if you see names of streets and buildings in French. There are some museums that not other city has like the Louisiana State Museum at the Cabildo, a place to see for knowing more about New Orleans and Louisiana.
However what it will probably attract you the most for Au Pairing in New Orleans is Mardi Gras, the great carnival party. Enjoy this celebration with the other Au Pairs, and be part of one of the most famous celebrations in the country. Once the Mardi Gras is over maybe you will prefer spending a day chilling outside visiting the swamps and gardens around with your host family.
The whole Southern experience is waiting for you!
