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. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Sacramento, Corpus Christi, Chicago, Albuquerque, St Louis, Fairbanks, Washington DC, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Juneau, Phoenix, Dallas, Miami, New Orleans, Boston, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, Skagway, Santa Fe, Indianapolis, Honolulu, Atlanta, Seattle, San Diego, San Francisco, Sitka, Salt Lake City, Savannah, Detroit, Anchorage and Atlantic City. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Ozarks, the Okefenokee Swamp, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Niagara Falls, the Disney resorts, rodeos, Yellowstone National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Glacier Bay National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Adirondacks, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Mount Rainier National Park, the Everglades, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the California coastline, Yosemite National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Appalachians, the Florida Keys and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
