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