There are so many wonderful countries around the world which offer a superb travel experience for tourists of all ages, but most seasoned vacationers will tell you none of them can quite match the all-round perfection of the USA. Whether you want to enjoy fun-packed days at theme parks, golf courses, ski resorts, iconic cities, quaint villages or sandy beaches, you’ll find exactly what you want in America.
A significant proportion of travellers enjoy a short city break once a year as well as a main holiday, and those who visit the USA will invariably select the likes of New York, San Francisco and Washington DC. However, there are plenty more which are well worth a visit, so here are four which, if you haven’t been yet, should feature on your metropolis-related wish list.
In 2010, only six US cities received more visitors than Atlanta, yet it remains an unusual choice of destination for many travellers, especially those from Europe. Those who do manage to make the trip find a destination that is a wonderful combination of cutting edge modernity and traditional Southern heritage. Among the many attractions that should feature on the itinerary are the World of Coca-Cola, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site and the Georgia Aquarium.
A charming city that has a distinctly unique character, Seattle is located in the north-western corner of the country in Washington State. The city is rightly famous for its influence on coffee culture, so be sure to settle down for a cup of Java every once in a while during your stay. The views across the region from the Space Needle, as well as from one of the many cruises that are available in the harbour, should not be missed. Be sure to have your camera with you at all times.
This wonderful destination attracts large numbers of visitors from all over the USA, but it still remains something of a hidden gem to tourists from elsewhere. If you plan to visit, you simply have to include a trip to Navy Pier on your timetable. The collection of shops, restaurants and a spectacular Ferris wheel is not to be missed. The Museum Campus is home to three of the country’s most important museums, so if you like voyages of discovery this is also a must-visit location.
Millions of tourists from all over the world flock to the Sunshine State of Florida every year, but many of them choose to remain close to the theme parks around Orlando. If you have the time and the inclination to travel a little further south to Miami, you will get the chance to savour a city whose architecture is almost a tourist attraction in its own right. The place is all about art deco, beaches and sensational food, so come along and have some fun.
