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