Must Visit Cities in the United States

Las Vegas, Nevada: If you think that Las Vegas is only good for those who want to gamble, you couldn’t be more wrong! The Las Vegas strip is a veritable playground for adults and children alike, with multiple resorts each boasting a different theme and vibe, making the area ripe for exploration! If you only have a few days here, you cannot hope to see and do all the town has to offer, but some of the absolute musts include seeing a Cirque de Soleil show, watching the awe-inspiriting fountain show at the Bellagio and paying a visit to Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden at the Mirage. Here, you will not only find the iconic white tigers that were the star of their show for many years, but many other big cat species coupled with a dolphin tank that can be viewed underwater! If you are feeling adventurous, take a cab from the strip to the downtown area, where you can zipline over the infamous Freemont Street!

New York City, New York: Perhaps the most famous city in all of America, the Big Apple has much to do for visitors. There are the most famous tourist activities to indulge in, such as taking a tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, wandering through Central Park or gazing at the lights of Time Square, yet there is a hidden side to this city that is also well worth exploring. For a truly humbling experience, you can go and pay your respects to those who lost their lives in the September 11th terrorist attacks of 2001 at the very site where the former World Trade Centers collapsed or mosey down the still-hip fifth avenue for some fabulous shopping options. IF you are looking to educate yourself, you can visit the world famous Metropolitan Museum of Art or the American Museum of Natural History or catch a live performance on Broadway! New York is also famous for its wonderful restaurants, yet no trip to New York would be complete without a visit to Katz Deli, where you can sink your teeth into a hot pastrami sandwich coupled with a kosher dill pickle spear for a true New York experience!

Seattle, Washington: Yes, Seattle is famous for its rainy weather. While there are not many sunny days here, if you fenagle a visit during the late summer (August through early September) you have the best odds of witnessing a sunny day. While sunshine on a city may seem rather arbitrary, witnessing Seattle on a clear, fair day is nothing short of absolutely breath taking! Not only do you get an up-close view of what is largely considered one of the most beautiful skylines in America, you can also witness the jaw-dropping mountains off in the distance! If you only come here once, you must visit the city’s most iconic landmark, the Space Needle, but you will also want to make time to visit the famous Pikes Place Market, which vibrates with energy and good cheer as local fishermen sell some of the freshest seafood available anywhere!

Washington DC, District of Colombia: As the nation’s capital, it is hardly surprising that there is so much to see and do here! First and foremost, you will want to make time to visit the many museums, some of which are considered to be the best in the world! While you must pick and choose due to the sheer volume, if you can only see a few, be sure to make time for the National Musuem of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of the American Indian. Of course, you must pay a token visit to the White House, yet the true magic of exploring Washington DC lies in visiting its many monuments! The three most famous are the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, yet there are many more to explore, including the sobering Vietnam Veteran’s Wall and the World War Two Monument.
