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 Yellowstone National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Florida Keys, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Route 66, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rainier National Park, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Yosemite National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Glacier Bay National Park, the Appalachians, the California coastline, rodeos, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount Rushmore, Niagara Falls, the Ozarks, the Everglades, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Bryce Canyon, the Disney resorts, the Adirondacks and Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met. Good luck on your travels.
