United States

United States, or the United States of America, is one of the world’s wonderful tourist destinations, located in Northern America. Bordered by the North Atlantic Ocean and the North Pacific Ocean, United States consists of 50 states and a Federal State, each of them with its own government and laws and rules.

United States boasts of such a great number of attractions that it takes years to explore all of them. Few to mention are the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco – the largest bridge in the world; the Grand Canyon – an amazing gorge located in the heart of the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona; the Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, where you can find an impressive monumental structure sculpted in granite, and containing the heads of former US presidents like George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln; the Huntington Botanical Gardens – which comprises fourteen botanical gardens; and Ground Zero – the former spot of the World Trade Center in New York.

The north eastern part of the nation is home to some of the best waterfalls in the world, such as the highest waterfalls in the world – Niagara, which is on the Niagara River between the borders of New York and Canada. Niagara is not only a popular tourist destination but also a major source of hydroelectric power for New York and Ontario. Waterfalls including Arethusa, Moss Glen, Bash Bish, Moxie, Bingham, and Ripley, are also much famed among the tourists.

Forests in United States are simply amazing, and many of them are noted for its scenic beauty and towering trees, ranging from chestnut and oaks to spruce and pine trees. A visit to such rich as well as sheltered forests as Green Mountain National Forest in Vermont, White Mountains of New Hampshire, and Alleghany National Forest in Pennsylvania, is really a great experience.

The nation also has to its credit a continuum of world-class national parks, of which perhaps the most fascinating is Yellowstone National Park, which is the first in the world. Spread over three states: Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana, this expansive national park covers an area of about 3,472 square miles. Also, fabulous is Red Wood National Park in California, which is home to some of the rare evergreen trees on the earth.

Places of interest also cover a chain of museums and historic monuments. For instance, Anniston Museum of Natural History in Alabama, Aspen Art Museum in Colorado, Evansville Museum of Arts and Science in Indiana, and White Pine Museum in Nevada, are all a treasure trove of rare art and artifacts.

No visit to United States is complete without an excursion to attractions such as the Statue of Liberty, which stands on the Liberty Island in the Hudson River in New York and the White House – the official residence of the US president in Washington, DC. Likewise, also, take a tour to the fantastic beaches of the nation, which among many others, are Red Rock Beach, New London Beach, and Amelia Beach.
