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

    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. We hope that you enjoy your hotel.
