When it comes to summer vacation, no one expects people to be interested in anything other than the beach. This year, it seems like things are changing. Travellers have become more and more enthusiastic about exploring the world and the United States are definitely a good place to start.
There are many interesting places hidden inside the vast territory of this country, and as many fun things you can try during your visit. Most people tend to start with things they can’t experience in their homeland. Some choose an underground tour of Seattle, while others are happy for being able to participate in American lotto games. Thrill and excitement is guaranteed, regardless of your specific choice. After all, it may even pay off – if you remember to check the lotto results while you are still there. In any case, visiting any of the following destinations is bound to enrich your life experiences.
- St. Augustine, Florida
The oldest city in the US is definitely a must-see if you happen to be near the state of Florida. It is filled with remnants of Spanish colonial architecture and an air of antiquity that surrounds even its most modern parts. Still, this city has somehow managed to escape the map of most popular destinations, which makes it a cheaper choice than the beaches of Miami per say.
- New York City, New York
Contrary to the first destination on our list, this is a well-known choice for travellers. Being one of the most famous and influential cities in the world, New York is an inevitable choice for any US visitor. The right guidance and travel tips will help you experience all major attractions in the city that never sleeps, although a night of roaming the streets could be just as exhilarating.
- Las Vegas, Nevada
Even if you are not a gambler (or prefer the Powerball to blackjack), Las Vegas is an important milestone in any US travellers’ agenda. Extravagant casinos, hotels, resorts and 24/7 bars can keep you occupied for quite a while, but this city has a completely different side if you are willing to explore even deeper. Nestled in the Mojave Desert, it surprises visitors to witness the selection of outdoor activities available on the rocky terrain.
- New Orleans, Louisiana
On both sides of the Mississippi river, you will find the original birthplace of the sound of jazz. New Orleans’ colourful history is bound to appeal to any passer-by. Some visit it in order to experience what is left of French culture. Mardi Gras, also known as Shrove or Fat Tuesday, is an annual celebration that guarantees to meet the expectations when it comes to parties. On the other hand, Bourbon Street, the French Quarter and the petite, unique bars and locals harbour stories that connect the old arts with the new. If you want to get lost in time, doing that in New Orleans is definitely a good idea.
