United States

All within your reach

With everything from arid deserts to snow-capped peaks to tropical islands, the fifth-largest country in the world has something for everyone. There’s so much variety and such a vast area that it’s impossible to see the entire country in one visit. Indeed, you could spend a lifetime exploring the United States and never run out of things to see!

Follow the Freedom Trail to Boston’s colonial history, climb a lighthouse on Maine’s rugged coastline, and attend the favorite American pastime: a baseball game at Wrigley Field. Visit the White House, see grand antebellum homes in the Old South, listen to jazz in New Orleans, bask in Hollywood glamour, and marvel at the magnificent Grand Canyon. Whether it’s the bright lights of Las Vegas or a Texas dude ranch that draws you to America, you will never get bored.
