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