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