One of the largest countries in the world, the United States of America (USA) is a place where you’ll have plenty of things to see and do. If you’re on a tour of this country for just a week or two, it would be impossible to explore everything that it has to offer for its visitors. This is the reason why holidaymakers often choose to explore a particular region of this country, such as the Southwest and the East Coast. You’ll come across some awe-inspiring sceneries and historic attractions while exploring this part of the world, which will make your tour of this country truly memorable.
Among the most famous attractions of this country you can explore during your USA tour is undoubtedly the Statue of Liberty. It is one of the most popular monuments in the world and an icon of the United States. This magnificent statue is a universal symbol of freedom and is located in the New York Harbour. You can either admire this statue from a distance by visiting Battery Park or examine it closely by taking a ferry right to the place where it stands. There are several ways to explore this monument and this can be done by purchasing the grounds ticket, pedestal ticket, or a crown ticket. However, it would be advisable to book your ticket well in advance.
Yet another famous attraction visited by plenty of individuals and families touring this country is Niagara Falls. It is situated along the border of Canada and the United States and is one of the world’s most popular waterfalls. The sheer magnificence of these waterfalls would leave you amazed as you watch the large quantities of water from Lake Erie flow into Lake Ontario over these massive falls. However, during the winter season, the amount of water is reduced to some extent as more of it is used for the production of hydro-electric power.
The Grand Canyon is one of the places you must not miss during your time spent in the United States. It has been carved by the Colorado River, creating the most dramatic ledges and cliff walls. The most visited section of Grand Canyon National Park is the South Rim, as it has a large visitors’ centre and regular bus service is run along the Rim during the high season. You can also savour the marvellous views by taking a stroll on the walkway that takes you to several platforms and vantage points. The North Rim provides a different perspective of the canyon, but you’ll have limited access of this section from November to May owing to snowy conditions.
If you wish to experience an exciting nightlife with loads of fun and entertainment, visit Las Vegas. While taking a stroll on ‘The Strip’, the central section of Las Vegas Boulevard, you’ll get to witness some massive hotels, resorts, and entertainment complexes. Most of them have been built with a defining theme, which would never fail to amaze you. They look spectacular after sunset when the glittering lights and neon signs illuminate them and the rest of the city.
