United States Travel
The United States is the world's fourth largest country, consisting of more than 9.5 million square kilometers. That's a lot of countryside to see, even for US citizens who have been here their whole lives. While the white sands of Fiji and the safaris of central South Africa are enticing for their far off locales and exotic sights, vacations in the United States remain the most popular for US citizens, and for good reason.
One of the most classic of American vacations is the road trip. With more than 4 million miles of road criss-crossing the country, Americans have been hitting the road for long drives for nearly 100 years. It takes upwards of a week to drive across the entire country if you stop and take in the sights,and there are forty-eight wholly unique states brimming with natural wonders and man made marvels along the way.
From the skyscrapers of New York City and Chicago to the sweeping desert beauty of the southeastern United States to the glitz and glamour of southern California, there's quite literally something for everyone. Taste fresh Salmon right off the boat from one of Seattle's world famous fish markets. Explore the white sandy beaches of Hawaii or Florida. Go hiking along the Appalachian trail, or climbing in the soaring Rocky Mountains. Gaze in awe at the Grand Canyon or the world' largest geyser in Yellowstone Park. Any of the nation's 62 National Parks are worth the trip; imagine being able to see them all.
Whether on a road trip or a dedicated trip to one of the country's world-class cities, vacations in the United States have so much to see. Even just visiting all 50 states in your lifetime will be an endeavor - imagine seeing all that each of them has to offer.

Planning Your Trip: When to Go Planning a big trip to Alaska? Don’t go when the land is cloaked in wintry darkness- unless you want to see the winter festivals, the aurora borealis, or the Yukon Quest sled dog race. Late summer is a good time to go hiking because the bugs are not as […]
