America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. How well can you know the USA? Try visiting Anchorage, New Orleans, Lake Tahoe, Fairbanks, Philadelphia, Sacramento, Chicago, Juneau, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Detroit, Kansas City, Savannah, St Louis, Miami, New York, Sitka, Skagway, Albuquerque, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Houston, San Diego, Boston, Seattle, Santa Fe, Washington DC and Fort Lauderdale. 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. Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Mount Rainier National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, the Ozarks, Mount Rushmore, the Disney resorts, the California coastline, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Niagara Falls, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Yosemite National Park, Route 66, the Adirondacks, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Florida Keys, the Appalachians, the wild west town of Tombstone, Yellowstone National Park, rodeos, the Grand Canyon, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Bryce Canyon and the Everglades are also iconic sights and destinations.
