Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. How well can you know the USA? Try visiting Juneau, Santa Fe, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, Skagway, Indianapolis, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Honolulu, Seattle, Phoenix, Washington DC, Salt Lake City, Fairbanks, Corpus Christi, St Louis, Sitka, Savannah, Atlanta, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale, Anchorage, Albuquerque, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Kansas City, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, New York, Boston and Minneapolis. Nobody can see every part of the United States of America but those cities are probably the ones that nearly everybody on earth has heard of. Mount Rushmore, the Appalachians, Niagara Falls, the wild west town of Tombstone, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Yellowstone National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Ozarks, the Adirondacks, the California coastline, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, rodeos, the Everglades, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Route 66, the Florida Keys, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Disney resorts and Bryce Canyon are also iconic sights and destinations.
