You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Corpus Christi, Seattle, Skagway, Salt Lake City, Fairbanks, Philadelphia, Atlanta, St Louis, Atlantic City, Honolulu, Savannah, New York, Boston, Chicago, Miami, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Kansas City, Sacramento, San Francisco, Houston, Juneau, New Orleans, Fort Lauderdale, Albuquerque, Anchorage, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Sitka, Lake Tahoe, Detroit and Dallas 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 Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, Bryce Canyon, the Florida Keys, the Ozarks, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Everglades, the Grand Canyon, the California coastline, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, rodeos, Mount Rainier National Park, the Adirondacks, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Glacier Bay National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Appalachians, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Niagara Falls, Yosemite National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Route 66 and the Disney resorts.
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. Good luck on your travels.
