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