    The USA has always welcomed friendly travellers from all over the world. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Kansas City, Dallas, Juneau, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Savannah, Miami, Sacramento, Phoenix, Honolulu, Albuquerque, Anchorage, Sitka, Corpus Christi, Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC, Boston, Lake Tahoe, Seattle, San Diego, Indianapolis, Santa Fe, Fairbanks, Houston, New Orleans, Minneapolis, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Skagway, Las Vegas, Detroit, New York, Atlanta, Chicago and St Louis 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 The plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Florida Keys, Bryce Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount Rainier National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Niagara Falls, the Adirondacks, Yellowstone National Park, the Appalachians, rodeos, Glacier Bay National Park, Yosemite National Park, the California coastline, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Ozarks, the Grand Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Disney resorts, Route 66, the Everglades and the wild west town of Tombstone.

    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.
