    America is one of the largest, most most varied and most interesting countries in the world. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Lake Tahoe, Chicago, Washington DC, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Honolulu, San Francisco, Miami, Albuquerque, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Minneapolis, San Diego, Phoenix, St Louis, Salt Lake City, New York, Sitka, Fairbanks, Boston, Houston, Skagway, Corpus Christi, Philadelphia, Seattle, Detroit, Sacramento, Indianapolis, Santa Fe, Juneau, Kansas City, Anchorage, New Orleans, Savannah and Atlanta 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 Adirondacks, Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Everglades, the Appalachians, Yosemite National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Disney resorts, the Okefenokee Swamp, the California coastline, Yellowstone National Park, the Ozarks, the Grand Canyon, the Florida Keys, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Niagara Falls, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Route 66, Bryce Canyon, Glacier Bay National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, rodeos, Mount Rainier National Park and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska.

    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. We hope that you enjoy your hotel.
