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