Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Sacramento, Washington DC, San Diego, Chicago, Kansas City, Dallas, Philadelphia, Houston, Skagway, Albuquerque, St Louis, Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, Corpus Christi, Salt Lake City, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Juneau, Seattle, Fairbanks, Sitka, Phoenix, Lake Tahoe, Indianapolis, New York, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Anchorage, Miami, Atlantic City, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Savannah, New Orleans and San Francisco 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 Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Florida Keys, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Appalachians, the Adirondacks, rodeos, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Okefenokee Swamp, Niagara Falls, the California coastline, Yellowstone National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rainier National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Yosemite National Park, Bryce Canyon, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, the Disney resorts, Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, Route 66, the Ozarks, the Everglades and Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park.
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. From camelopard.com, a heartfelt Bon Voyage!
