America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Indianapolis, Skagway, New Orleans, Dallas, Savannah, San Diego, Miami, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, St Louis, Lake Tahoe, Fairbanks, New York, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Anchorage, Philadelphia, Detroit, Houston, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Sacramento, Juneau, Sitka, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Washington DC, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Atlantic City, Boston and Corpus Christi. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. Mount Rainier National Park, Mount Rushmore, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, rodeos, the Ozarks, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Appalachians, Yosemite National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Yellowstone National Park, the Florida Keys, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Niagara Falls, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Route 66, the Everglades, Bryce Canyon, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Grand Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp, Glacier Bay National Park, the California coastline, the Adirondacks and the Disney resorts are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America. Good luck on your travels.
