Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Boston, Fairbanks, Sitka, Kansas City, Dallas, Santa Fe, Indianapolis, Savannah, New Orleans, Detroit, Anchorage, Skagway, Atlantic City, Fort Lauderdale, Honolulu, Miami, Seattle, Lake Tahoe, St Louis, Albuquerque, Phoenix, New York, Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Chicago, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Washington DC, Corpus Christi, San Francisco, Juneau, Los Angeles, San Diego, Atlanta and Houston. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Disney resorts, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Yellowstone National Park, the Adirondacks, rodeos, Glacier Bay National Park, the California coastline, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Everglades, the Appalachians, Niagara Falls, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rainier National Park, Bryce Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yosemite National Park, the Florida Keys, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Mount Rushmore and the Ozarks are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
