Tourist Destinations


Every US cities are marked with pulsating life and home to several attractions.  Washington D.C is the capital city and is home to the most powerful residence in the world, The White House. New York has the Statue of Liberty, The Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park, almost all of which are a landmark for the entire country itself.


Among the top 25 most-visited tourist destinations in the US, according to Forbes magazine are the thundering falls of Niagara, the harrowing water-chutes of Disneyland’s and Pirates of the Caribbean. Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, remains on top in the theme-park world. The natural scenic attractions include the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks.


The northern states offer many winter vacations and skiing opportunities if interested for winter sports. If it’s sunshine and sandy beaches, the southern states have excellent climate and tourist appeal.  Hollywood remains famous for its film-loving visitors.  Las Vegas is home to the casinos, enormous hotels, wedding chapels and an exciting nightlife.




The climate varies along with the landscape from tropical in Hawaii and southern Florida to Tundra in Alaska and atop some of the highest mountains. Most of the South experiences a subtropical humid climate with mild winters and long, hot, humid summers whereas most of the North and East experience a temperate continental climate with warm summers and cold winters.


Rainfall decreases markedly from the humid forests of the Eastern Great Plains to the semi-arid short grass prairies on the high plains abutting the Rocky Mountains. Arid deserts, including the Mojave, extend through the lowlands and valleys of the southwest, from westernmost Texas to California and northward throughout much of Nevada. Some parts of California have a Mediterranean climate. Forests line the windward mountains of the Pacific Northwest from Oregon to Alaska.
