5 Best Cities to Visit in the USA

The United States is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world. It has diverse cities and attractions to fascinate every visitor. Most of the destinations are considered worthy to see before you die. If you get a chance to plan a trip to the USA, you will find a perfect combination of history, nature, fun, and glamour. Such a wonderful adventure is worth remembering for a lifetime.

One way to show that you’re not as smart as an American is to make some comment about how you want to see the country on your one week trip. Americans know exactly how long it takes to get anyplace in their country. Ask instead what’s great to see in the region. They can then point you to a place that’s no more than a day away that you may have missed.

For scenery you cannot find better than Arizona, for wide open skies Kansas, for beautiful sea shores there is Maine and Oregon, for amazing flowers there is the South and for historic places there is an abundance in the North East.
