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