In the past several decades, ever since the end of WWII, United States of America are the world’s leading power. What this means is that we can see, hear and taste America in our everyday lives through things like movies, music, McDonald’s and Coca-Cola. It is therefore completely natural that many people dream of going to the U.S. and getting this authentic American experience for themselves. If this is true in your case, here is a short list of 5 things that you simply must try while in this amazing country.
- Start with the History
Go on a tour across the U.S. to learn as much about its history as you possibly can. This will also enable you to get a better understanding of America as it is today and what made it so. There are many incredible museums all across the land but what you want to see is not in the museum. Visit Mount Rushmore and see the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt carved into the stone, just as they carved this great nation’s place in world’s history. Go to Philadelphia and see the crack the liberty bell or walk amongst the fields of Gettysburg. The choice is all yours.
- Natural Wonders
When speaking about America in general, what most people envision is just a country like any other. This is however not so. U.S. is world’s fourth largest country in size, it is almost as large as the Europe itself and the diversity of its landscapes is even greater. Here you can see various types of terrain, from dry deserts to the snowy mountain forests. However, there are some biomes here that you won’t be able to see anywhere else in the world. Grand Canyon, for example is one of such marvels. This world’s largest canyon is a completely unique site in the entire world and is something that you definitely should not miss.
- Go to an NBA Game
Even though basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world, NBA is head and shoulders above any other national league there is. It is a dream of every boy, since the moment he first takes a basketball ball in his hands to play in the NBA and as soon as you see the court with your own two eyes you will have the answer why. Get your NBA tickets as soon as possible and enjoy in the amazing sport event unlike which you have ever seen before.
- A Genuine American Nightlife
Through various movies and TV series you have probably learned a lot about American nightlife that stands second to none. Still as we already said U.S. is a large country so nightlife is not the same in all states. You can never compare New York or Las Vegas clubs with their counterparts in the Bible Belt so what you need is a guide of America’s most nightlife-friendly cities.
- Hawaiian Vacation
Opposed to the contrary belief, not all of America is continental. This being said, why not go on a perfect vacation in Hawaii, one of the greatest tourist havens in the entire world. Life’s too short for you to miss on the opportunity like this. Go on a vacation in one of the tropical heavens on earth and this will be a decision that you will never come to regret.
There are many, many more exciting things for you to experience in the United States but here no list will be able to help you. The only way to truly explore all the things that are worth doing in America is to go there yourself. Being spontaneous every once in a while can truly do a world of good for you. Do not be afraid to leave your comfort zone and set sails to embark into the unknown. After all, John Lennon did once say that the life is what happens while you are busy making other plans. The world is your oyster!
