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