America is one country that nearly everyone wants to visit at some time in their lives. 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 Rodeos, the Florida Keys, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the California coastline, the Adirondacks, the Okefenokee Swamp, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Yosemite National Park, Bryce Canyon, the Ozarks, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Niagara Falls, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Mount Rushmore, the Everglades, Yellowstone National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Grand Canyon, the Appalachians, Route 66 and the Disney resorts.
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. Camelopard suggests using well-known companies for your hotel reservations.
