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

    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.
