The USA is one of the most developed and technologically advanced countries in the world, yet has preserved much of its wilderness and beautiful scenery. 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 Santa Fe, Miami, Chicago, Skagway, San Diego, Honolulu, New York, Albuquerque, Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Savannah, Corpus Christi, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, New Orleans, Seattle, Boston, Washington DC, Detroit, Houston, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Atlantic City, Juneau, Los Angeles, Sitka, Las Vegas, Fairbanks, Phoenix, Kansas City, Anchorage, Lake Tahoe, St Louis, Indianapolis and San Francisco. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Yosemite National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Adirondacks, the Florida Keys, Route 66, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Glacier Bay National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Yellowstone National Park, the Appalachians, the California coastline, the Everglades, the Disney resorts, Mount Rainier National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the wild west town of Tombstone, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Bryce Canyon, Niagara Falls, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, the Ozarks and rodeos are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
