Five Best Places To Visit In The US
New York, New York
A global centre for art, fashion, food, music and finance, New York continues to live up to its hype. Since the city always has so much to offer, resist the urge to visit every nook and corner on your first trip. Break things down by interest, neighbourhood or borough.
National Mall In Washington, DC
Home to ten Smithsonian museums, plus landmarks including the Capitol building and the Lincoln Memorial, the National Mall represents the centre of American political life and showcases its cultural history in a two-mile strip of iconic monuments and museums.
Rocky Mountains, Colorado
There are so many different ways to access the Rockies in Colorado. Best for big peaks and winter sports, this place could be your first stop to explore the most classic mountains of the American West. But remember to stay extremely hydrated and skip the alcohol here.
The Everglades, Florida
Thanks to the diverse range of flora and fauna that live here, the Everglades is a national park, a Unesco World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere Reserve. To experience the best way of exploring this sprawling wetland, come prepared with sunscreen and bug spray.
Considered the best for geology lovers, this place literally sums up the grandiosity of the US’s natural history. But since large swathes of this region remain extremely remote and could lack cell service, bring plenty of water and always share your plans with people you find trustworthy.
