    The United States of America is famous for the comfort of its hotels. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe.

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

    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. Whether you travel America for business or pleasure, enjoy your journey.
