United States

Major Tourist Attractions: Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Golden Gate Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Georgia Aquarium, Grand Canyon

From Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon, the United States is a wealth of various cultures, activities and adventures. Whether you want to rest on a beach, shop in a city, climb a mountain or visit a museum, it can take years to explore this expansive country.One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, travel in the United States has a little something for everyone, no matter where they’re from.

The northeast gives us the bright lights of New York and Boston, but also a rural relaxing side as well in Maine and Vermont. The Mid-Atlantic and Southern states are the birthplace of democracy in the United States, and history buffs could spend many lifetimes learning about the short but action-packed history of the country. These same states also provide a lot to the more cosmopolitan traveler, including some of the most exciting cities in the world. The Mid-West and the Western states include vast expanses of land, including some of the best National Parks not only in the country, but the world. Places like Las Vegas and Hollywood attract visitors from around the world, seeking their own 5 minutes in the limelight. The country doesn’t stop at the water’s edge though, Alaska, Hawaii and the American territories give the more active traveler plenty to see and do.

Many first time visitors to the United States expect to see the country portrayed in movies; and if they only visit New York and Las Vegas they may see it. But to truly appreciate the enormity of the culture, history and peoples of the nation it is important to explore the lesser-visited destinations: the small towns and regions that all come together to create what truly is a collection of many different states and regional personalities.

No matter what your interest or your walk of life, there are plenty of fun places to visit and exciting things to do traveling in the U.S.

  • Explore the beautiful islands of New England
  • Trek up the dune in North Carolina where the Wright Brothers first took off
