Places to Visit in USA

 by Lia-feature 

 The United States is the most popular and renowned country in the world today, thanks to their financial power, but also to their strong export of culture, among which the film and music industry are the most popular. There are fifty states in the US, not counting Washington D.C., which is the capital and is considered a federal district. There are 48 contiguous states here, meaning they are linked together, but there are also Alaska and Hawaii, which adhered in 1959. We mentioned all this information in order to make a point out of the fact that it can be difficult to choose the best places to visit in USA.

   Every state in the USA has something which makes it different and special, so if you want to make an American road trip, make sure you have enough time and money to check out all its attractions. Nevertheless, we are going to present some of the most attractive places to visit in USA, the first of them being the state of New York, and mainly New York City. This is the largest city in USA and it is a financial and cultural hub. Museums, parks, cafes, restaurants, skyscrapers and a stupendous nightlife are among the things you can enjoy here. Don’t miss a visit to Ellis Island to see the Statue of Liberty and climb on top of the Empire State Building for a spectacular view of the city that never sleeps.

   Among all the places to visit in USA, our favorite has to be the state of California, home of Hollywood and San Francisco. The latter is one of the most beautiful cities this country has to offer, with its hippie culture and nonconformist attitude, its Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf and numerous parks and beaches. However, if you prefer a more historical town, go to Chicago, Illinois, where you can also enjoy some of the best American food and not only. Here you can admire the wonderful old and modern architecture, take a stroll through Millennium Park and be impressed by everything you see in the Museum of Science and Industry.

   One of the most famous places to visit in USA, Las Vegas is the major city in the state of Nevada. It is, of course, famous for its casinos and gambling venues, but you can also enjoy the architecture, the spas and hotels, or the Bellagio Fountains. Fine cuisine and fine living in general are celebrated here, but be careful not to over-spend in this brightly-lit city located at the edge of the desert. These were our main picks for USA destinations, but we also recommend Hawaii for its exotic landscape, Los Angeles for the nightlife and beaches, New Orleans for its culture, food and music, and Washington, the unmistakable capital of this country. 

There are many wonderful places to visit in USA, but among them New York City is special, because it is a world capital where people and cultures from around the world clash and create a special and unique atmosphere.
