List of Tourist Attractions in America
The US is one of the most various countries in the world. Here you’ll find deserts, wetlands, mountains and woods, together with cities of all types.
New York is where most visitors start thinking about America, and the city benefits from tourism on a massive scale. Sadly it’s often no longer possible to walk around inside the Statue of Liberty, but New York has many other famous landmarks to beguile the visitor as well as thriving street life and night life, elegant dining and beautiful buildings.
New England, the North East of the US, is a good pace for hikers, with its dense woodlands and rolling mountains. But it’s a good idea to go in summer: winter snows can cut towns off in Maine!
Further West is the Great Lakes, so large that they’re really almost inland seas. On their shores is Chicago, which lives up to its reputation as the Windy City but which is also a second home of the Blues, the birthplace of electric blues.
Almost directly South of Chicago at the other end of the country is New Orleans, home of traditional Jazz and of the famous Mardi Gras festival, where you can see dancers, bands and New Orleans Indians amongst other sights.
Texas and the western states make money from tourism but they also have working farms and ranches, as well as some major cities, including Austin.
And in California, Los Angeles offers the beach on one side and the Rocky Mountains on the other, so it’s possible to spend the day snowboarding and the night at the beach.
