You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Lake Tahoe, Anchorage, Detroit, San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Atlantic City, Fairbanks, Juneau, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Sitka, Salt Lake City, Atlanta, Miami, Savannah, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix, Kansas City, Dallas, Honolulu, Corpus Christi, Boston, New York, New Orleans, Washington DC, St Louis, Albuquerque, Sacramento, Seattle, Skagway and Las Vegas are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Appalachians, Glacier Bay National Park, Route 66, the Disney resorts, Yellowstone National Park, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Niagara Falls, the Ozarks, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Adirondacks, the California coastline, the Florida Keys, rodeos, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rainier National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Bryce Canyon, the Everglades, Yosemite National Park and Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Travel safely and happily.
