The United States of America is, in nearly every way, a large country, whether in area, in variety or in character. From New York and Boston to the east, through the Midwest, across the Rockies, to San Francisco on the west coast, without forgetting the American South, the U.S. has something for every taste.To experience the quintessential American Big City, visitors should head straight to New York City to wander its urban canyons, eat from a hot dog stand or a trendy new eatery, and catch a Broadway show. For a taste of Yankee history, follow Boston's Freedom Trail, with stops at Paul Revere's house and Mother Goose's grave. For the nature lover, the United States' National Parks System features such natural wonders as Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Arches and Zion National Parks in Utah, and Arizona's Grand Canyon, among fifty-five others, including those in Hawaii and Alaska.On the west coast, San Francisco boasts a lively art scene and liberal spirit, while Los Angeles is home to the country's film industry and many of its stars. To the south, Las Vegas is an adult playground, Austin boasts a thriving music scene, and the entire state of Florida is a world all its own. Hotels are plentiful no matter where you are in the United States. It's best to pick a city as your base and explore from there.
