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 The Disney resorts, the Adirondacks, the Everglades, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Ozarks, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Bryce Canyon, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, Niagara Falls, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, rodeos, the Appalachians, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Route 66, the California coastline, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, the Florida Keys and Glacier Bay National Park.
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 found today's Camelopard tip useful.
