Vibrant cities, sprawling diverse landscapes and a melting pot of culture and history are just a few things that make the United States the third most visited country in the world. It’s home to many iconic cities like New York City, LA, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami, Boston – each more culturally unique than the last. And those aren’t even the half of it – how about the party-loving folks of New Orleans, the eccentric and free-spirited Portland or the music capital of the world, Austin?
Past the city lights, you’ll find a landscape like no other. The United States is home to some of the most incredible scenery in the world “from sea to shining sea.” From the otherworldly red rock deserts to the marshy swamplands; from the mighty Tetons to the lush rainforests of the Pacific Northwest; from the cliff strewn shores of Cali to the tropical waters of Florida Keys; the United States landscape is the total package.
Thanks to its well-developed tourist industry, the United States is home to every type of accommodation imaginable. From the Ritz in NYC to cosy mountain lodges in Wyoming to charming 18th-century boutique hotels in the French Quarter, the options are limitless.
From food to music to art to history, there is a kaleidoscope of culture in the US. Its centuries-long history as the “Land of Opportunity” has lent it a unique sense of pride and given way to the “American Dream.”
Not only that, the USA is constantly recognized as being one of the most ethnically diverse nations in the world. From Little Italy in NYC, Miami’s Little Haiti, Germantown in Frankenmuth, the Vietnamese Factors Row in NOLA, Little Ethiopia in Maryland and so many more, they all add to the nation’s unique patchwork of heritage and culture. Whether you explore the rich Native American history that spans several millennia; take to the charming villages of New England; dive into the South’s food and hospitality scene; or explore the bustling urban sprawls of NYC and the likes; you’ll be met with a new kind of local culture every step of the way.
What isn’t it famous for? First things that spring to mind include the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Hollywood, hotdogs, Krispy Kreme, sports, music, Statue of Liberty, and so much more.
More than 59 million people travel to New York City every year, making it the number 1 tourist destination in the USA. This is followed by Los Angeles, Orlando, Las Vegas, and Chicago.
