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

    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. Visit again, if not to travel then for another useful travel tip.
