    America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people. Philadelphia, Seattle, Houston, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Lake Tahoe, Sitka, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Atlantic City, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Santa Fe, Sacramento, Dallas, Savannah, Anchorage, Boston, Salt Lake City, Fairbanks, San Diego, Indianapolis, Albuquerque, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Juneau, New Orleans, New York, St Louis, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Corpus Christi and Skagway. If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as Bryce Canyon, the Florida Keys, Yellowstone National Park, the Ozarks, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Grand Canyon, the wild west town of Tombstone, Yosemite National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Everglades, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Glacier Bay National Park, Route 66, rodeos, the Adirondacks, Mount Rushmore, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Appalachians, Niagara Falls, the California coastline, the Disney resorts and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met. We hope that you enjoy your hotel.
