So you want to see America. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe.

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 The Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Adirondacks, Mount Rainier National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, Niagara Falls, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Florida Keys, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Okefenokee Swamp, the California coastline, the Everglades, Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon, Route 66, Glacier Bay National Park, the Ozarks, the Disney resorts, Yosemite National Park, the Appalachians, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount Rushmore, rodeos, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi and Bryce Canyon.
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. Good luck on your travels.
