The experience of visiting the US is like no other, and while it won’t ever be the same as living there, you can still enjoy every single moment of your trip. By the end of this article, you won’t be asking any questions about whether you should go! Below, we’ve got all the reasons that you need to go ahead and add America to your bucket list.
- It’s Diverse
You can ski, sunbathe, hike, tramp, explore, deep dive – America is diverse for its people, its landscapes and more. The people come from all corners of the world and it’s basically a melting pot of culture no matter how you look at it. Even in the same cities and towns there are vast differences by suburb. It’s extraordinary to witness and to immerse yourself in those differences just by traveling through the states.
- It’s Historical
There is a long history in America and according to the government websites, there are more than 35,000 museums across the United States. You could literally plan a tour of the biggest museums of the United States and spend your entire vacation time seeing some of the richest history the country has to offer. Some of them focus solely on wars, and others focus on modern inventions and the American future. America is filled with history that goes back for centuries and you can be a part of it by making sure you soak it all up!
- It’s A Russian Doll
You know when you open a Russian doll, and there’s another one and another one? Well, that’s much like America – it’s packed with hidden gems and cultural secrets. Some of the smallest cities hold some of the best festivals and some of the largest towns are packed with famous restaurants to explore. There are attractions and towns that are buried and you could be missing out on the chance to discover so many things!
- The Food
This one really doesn’t need much explanation – we’ve all seen how America is packed with restaurants of all cultures and backgrounds. The classic Mac & Cheese and fried chicken dishes, the southern “salads’ that don’t actually have anything green in them and the range of authentic Latin food? It’s all to be had in one place: America. You can try food challenges for fun and you can experience some of the most exquisite cuisine in the whole world just in one country. Travel state to state and try their signature dish and blog it as you go. The pasta you get may not be the truly Italian way, but the Italian-Americans in the cities add something that’s theirs alone. It doesn’t matter where you go in the US, you’re going to be able to find whatever you want.
- The Style
Everywhere is diverse in the US, and we’ve covered that fact already. However, if you look at the styles of clothes and trends in hair and makeup in New York you’ll find it vastly different compared to California or Charleston. The style of those in the US varies wherever you go, and you can visit and take note of these styles when you choose to visit. There is always something to see, and you won’t regret it when you turn up and get hyped! You can book into the New York Fashion Week, too, and see the clothing on the catwalk. You can even go to a personal shopper and ask them to help you with your style – it’s the perfect outing on your vacation!
- The View
Whether you are standing at the top of the Empire State Building or you are standing overlooking the Grand Canyon, the view wherever you are in the US is spectacular. You can take in some of the best mountain ranges, desert cacti and beautiful beaches. You can find clear blue waters with wildlife in abundance and you can get that picture-perfect view wherever you go. You’ll be in total awe and you can plan your entire trip from view to view. Camping under the stars will make you feel as if you’re literally out there in space!
- The Tourism
You’ve seen the American flag and you’ve seen the TV versions of the parades, right? Well, patriotism is REAL in America and wherever you go, the tourism industry is booming. The downside with visiting America is that the tourist industry can make it particularly expensive. It’s a good idea to work out all of your expenses before you go ahead and travel around the country. The good news, though, is that despite the higher cost, it’s completely worth it given the amount of country you get to see.
- The Choice
You can tailor your travel in the US to coincide with what’s most important to you for your vacation. If you want to go camping through the country, you can. If you plan to tour the bigger cities, they’re waiting for you right now. You can enjoy the nightlife or you can be an early bird and go wherever you want during the morning hours. You can always find something that suits you and you get such a range of choice in the US when you are planning to arrive. If you are on a budget, you’ll be able to see what you want to see on that budget. If money is no object, the Upper East Side will welcome you with open arms. There’s choices here!
- The People
You can sit at any coffee shop in any town or city in the US and see something interesting. The people in America all come with different morals and values depending on where you are visiting, and you need to ensure that you are well-versed with all of the people so that you can watch. Sitting with a coffee and just watching the world go by is an enjoyable pastime wherever you are in the world, but in America you will see the personalities of those who are enjoying themselves in their day to day world. The accents, the habits and more are going to ensure that you have always got something to see!
- The Appreciation
Any time you travel in the world, you will see other cultures and the way of life of other people. You will learn to appreciate your own lifestyle and routines when you see the routines on display when you people watch in America. It’s crazy how it can differ so much from what you are used to. You can really capture a new appreciation for the country itself as much as you can for your own way of living, and America is going to teach you so much that you don’t know about the country!
