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

    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. Travel safely and happily.
