You might already know that you want to see the United States, but America is a huge place. Where do you even begin when traveling to this part of the world? There are so many fantastic places to see and so many iconic locations both natural and manmade. If you’ve seen any film in human history then you’ve seen some aspect of America. It’s hard to resist the urge to experience this great country in person. But there’s no need to fear. If you want a little inspiration for your trip then let’s discuss the best of the best in the great U.S.
Arkansas is a beautiful state with so much to offer in terms of both stunning scenery and an exciting cultural background. You should head to the Ozark Mountain if you’re looking for somewhere to begin. This underground adventure will take you through a trail of gorgeous rock formations, limestone caves, and even underwater lakes. There’s a beautiful world lying right beneath the state of Arkansas and that’s not even scraping the surface of what there is to see here. You should see the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville if you want to see some of the best pieces of art from American history, never mind the history of Arkansas alone.
If you get bored of Arkansas then you should head to the state directly south of it: Louisiana. There’s a lot to see here but you should definitely start with a history lesson at the National WWII Museum. There’s something humbling about hearing the tales of that terrible part of history. You should find somewhere comfortable to stay whilst you’re in Louisiana, of course. The Sleep Inn in Jonesboro should suffice for a few days to a week if you want luxury and comfort. And the city of Jonesboro has fascinating things to see, such as the beautiful Craighead Forest Park.
There’s no denying that California is one of the most popular states in America. It has sun, culture, and a vibrant array of people hailing from all over the world. Obviously, this is most prevalent in a city such as Los Angeles. The home of many of the most famous people in the world, L.A. is a wonderful place to visit. Seeing Hollywood for yourself is a beautiful and bizarre experience, simultaneously. You’ll see all the glitz and glamor and the surface of your favorite films and see all the intriguing things that lie behind the veil. Of course, once you’re done touring Beverly Hills and the surrounding area, there are things to enjoy in this city other than streets paved with gold. The Grand Central Market in downtown L.A. is a great place to visit for some authentic food. You can delicious oven fired pizza and see great live bands play. And don’t forget to see Venice Beach whilst you’re in the city.
Of course, there’s more to California than L.A. You’ll probably get bored of the fun and excitement after a few days, as blasphemous as that might be to say. Another fantastic city to see along the west coast is San Francisco. It’s very different to Los Angeles in an equally beautiful way. San Fran is an intriguing city, whether you’re soaking up the culture of Japantown or traversing rocky water to reach the island of Alcatraz. In the case of the latter, you’ll be surprised to see not an abandoned rock but a flourishing and vibrant island with its own ecosystem and colorful gardens. San Francisco is a really unique city. There’s nowhere else like it in the world.
