Flag of USA for United States travel guide

United States of America

The fifth-largest country in the world has something for everyone, from arid deserts to snow-capped peaks to tropical islands. With so much variety and such a vast area, 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.

Visitors can follow 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 New York or a Texas dude ranch that draw you to America, you will never get bored.
