Ich w├╝rde sagen: "Die Reise in die USA".

Im Deutschen wird "USA" immer mit dem Artikel verwendet: "aus den USA", "in die USA" etc. "In den USA gibt es bedeutende Nationalparks".

Just to add a few cents.
Usually countries are neuter singular. Then you don't use an article and you would use nach. For example "Die Reise nach Deutschland".

But some countries are feminine (eg die Schweiz - "Die Reise in die Schweiz"), masculine (eg der Iran - "Die Reise in den Iran"), or plural (eg die Niederlande - "Die Reise in die Niederlande"). Then you need to use an article.

EDIT: And now I realise I should have answered in German ;)
Force of habit.
