Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. St Louis, San Diego, Houston, Honolulu, Skagway, Sitka, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, Albuquerque, Washington DC, Seattle, Santa Fe, Philadelphia, Boston, Indianapolis, New York, San Francisco, Anchorage, Kansas City, Juneau, Atlanta, Detroit, Miami, Sacramento, Savannah, New Orleans, Lake Tahoe, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Atlantic City, Fairbanks and Corpus Christi 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 Rodeos, Route 66, Glacier Bay National Park, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Disney resorts, the Florida Keys, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Appalachians, Mount Rainier National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Mount Rushmore, the Everglades, the Okefenokee Swamp, Yosemite National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the California coastline, Niagara Falls, Bryce Canyon, the Ozarks and the Adirondacks.
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. Good luck on your travels.
