Top 6 Places to Visit in the United States

The United States of America (US) is the largest economy in the world and is a country endowed with beautiful cities, spectacular natural scenery, magnificent historical landmarks, and world-class entertainment. Traversing the country gives the visitor an amazing experience, although it is difficult to exhaust all the tourist destinations. For anyone taking a trip across the United States, here are 6 places I believe everyone must visit:

New York

Often ranked as top attraction in the US, the most populous city in the country is home to iconic sights such as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Wall Street, Ellis Island, and the Empire State Building. The largest city in the country hosts a myriad of activities ranging from sports, history, and politics to shopping, food, and entertainment. In addition to the above mentioned must-see sights, other places of interests include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Yankee Stadium, the Cloisters Museum, and of course the food, beginning with the pizzerias in Brooklyn.

San Francisco

San Francisco is home to the best known bridge in the world; stretching nearly 2 miles (2.75 kilometers), the Golden Gate Bridge is a sight to behold! Of course there's more to see in San Francisco than just the bridge, including the famous Alcatraz Prison and the Victorian houses, known as the Painted Ladies.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles, or LA, is among the most well-known cities in the US, in part thanks to its urban sprawl, which includes Hollywood, Malibu, and Santa Monica. Among my favorite places in the Los Angeles area are the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Dolby Theater (The Academy Awards venue), and amusement parks such as the Disneyland and Pacific Park. One can also enjoy shopping on Rodeo Drive, touring Beverly Hills, or relaxing in one of the high end nightspots; you might even see a celebrity or two.

Las Vegas

Widely known as "Sin City," Las Vegas is where you'll find world class casinos and entertainment. If you have sampled enough culinary delights from the top chefs in the city and had enough of the music and drinks for the night, you may want to head over to the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef, the Neon Museum, or the nearby Red Rock Canyon.

Grand Canyon

Located in the state of Arizona, this breath-taking canyon stretches over 275 miles (425 kilometers) and is about 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) at its deepest. This is truly among the most impressive of the many world wonders and makes a trip to Arizona well worth any visitor's time.

Yellowstone National Park

This is the world's oldest national park and it occupies land in three states. Recognized as a world heritage site, the park boasts an incredible natural environment filled with fascinating geysers, bubbling hot-springs, and amazing wildlife. The hiking trails traverse the park and stretch for miles.
