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