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

    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.
