Home of the Brave, Land of the Free, containing over 50 states, the USA is one of the largest countries in the world. A person could spend their entire lifetime living in the USA and never feel that they have seen or done it all. From the deserts and canyons of the Wild West, to the ranches of the deep south, the beaches of the west coast, and the cosmopolitan cities of the east, the USA feels like several different countries and cultures combined, and has something for every type of traveler.
One of the best things to do in the USA is to visit the iconic landmarks that have made this country a beloved travel destination across the world. Los Angeles, New York, and Las Vegas are among those 'must visit' destinations.
In Los Angeles, wander down Hollywood boulevard and check out the various stars and handprints left by various celebrities, actors, and musicians throughout the decades. Take a celebrity-homes tour in Beverly Hills and use Los Angeles as a starting point for the other charming Southern Californian towns and cities in the area.
Even those who do not consider themselves as big gamblers or party animals will enjoy the experience of traveling to Las Vegas and seeing some of the eccentric and downright unusual designs of the larger than life themed hotels and casinos.
In New York, admire one of the most beautiful skylines in the world from the viewing deck at the top of the Empire State Building and feel transported to the other sides of the world in the charming, international neighborhoods of Little Italy and Chinatown. Of course, no trip to New York City is complete without venturing out to see the lovely Lady Liberty up close, or by taking a day trip to Niagara Falls.
Since the USA is so large and its climates so diverse, there is no overall best time to travel to the country. In the Southen states and the Midwest, temperatures get very hot and humid over the summer, so they are best enjoyed over the spring or fall months. Most of the East and West coasts are preferable during the summer as the temperatures are at their hottest and rainfall is minimum. Check the specific temperatures and weather conditions for your destination before traveling.
