America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people.

If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as The Everglades, Bryce Canyon, the Adirondacks, Route 66, the Okefenokee Swamp, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the California coastline, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Mount Rainier National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Yosemite National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the Disney resorts, the Appalachians, the Florida Keys, rodeos, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Ozarks, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met. Whether you travel America for business or pleasure, enjoy your journey.
