    Places to Spend your Holiday in US

    Must See Places in US

    Posted on 4/14/2008

    Why travel abroad when our own country has a lot to offer? I am an experienced traveler and I consider our place to be the best tourist destination among other countries.

    Many people would perceive that local travel is less exciting than going abroad. But what they didn’t know is that our country amazes even the local tourists.

    Being a melting pot of various cultures, the US has a rich history. There are lots of historic landmarks and monuments, museums, national parks, beaches, and all the exotic places you can think of.

    One of the most unforgettable places I have been to is the Niagara Falls without having even a proper travel advisory. The first time I saw it, I was enthralled by its mystifying beauty. I learned that this fall is also a valuable source of hydroelectric power, and not only that, this beauty has inspired a lot of poets, writers, and filmmakers to create their masterpiece. It seems that its splendor can arouse an artist's heart.

    Also my favorite is the Broadway in New York City. As I love watching theater plays, I consider this place as the ultimate destination for people who enjoy theater houses. On a street near Time Square, there is an area called Theater District or much widely known as Great White Way. This area of Manhattan houses an array of large-scale, commercial plays, which is often musical.

    If you are looking for a place that has endless stretch of beach, I highly recommend Florida. This is a large peninsula located in the southeastern region. Much of the state has humid subtropical climate which is great for beach lovers, sun-bathers, and surfers.

    My visit to the Grand Canyon is an unforgettable experience I have. I was agape with its magnificent and quite mystifying view. Located in northern Arizona, the Grand Canyon is a mile-deep rock layers that were created at a bottom of a vast sea millions of years ago. When two tectonic plates collided raising the entire region thousands of feet, creating the Colorado Plateau that lies 7 to 9 thousand feet above sea level. What I love most about this place is how breathtaking it is when shadows cascade from its fissures and maze of seemingly endless canyons.

    For snowboarders and skiers, the Aspen Mountain in Colorado is the perfect getaway destination. The mountain is not particular high but it is still one of the greatest recreational downhill skiing. The scenery is truly awe-inspiring. If you are looking for a place that you can carouse, gamble, and party non-stop, Las Vegas is the perfect destination for you. Dubbed as the Sin City, this place is well-renowned for its lavish casino resorts, girly bars, and adult entertainment. You can even see Elvis Presley marrying two couples!

    After my casino travel, I went ahead to Hoover Dam. Located 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, I witnessed firsthand the magnificent man-made concrete structure that tamed the Colorado River.

    I always tell my friends to choose local destination over abroad, because believe me it is really worth to take a chance to be amazed by our country's beauty. Remember I never hired a travel guide to visit these places.
