People like to wander around different places to enjoy their Christmas in a memorable fashion. The United States of America is one of the favorite spots of tourists, but this is a diverse country, and people are interested to know which places they must visit.

A list of the best spots and places to visit in USA during Christmas is described below.

1. Leavenworth, Washington

Leavenworth in Washington is regarded as an ideal location for the celebration of special events like Christmas. This city is located at the base of the Cascade Mountains. The streets are filled with a number of Santa Claus, and gifts are distributed among the tourists on this occasion to make them feel special.

Different food stalls are also set through which delicious edibles can be obtained. The whole town is decorated in the loveliest manner possible. A variety of edibles are presented by numerous food chains and restaurants that are consumed by people on special occasions as well as on regular days.

Radar Lake, outside of Seattle in the suburb of Woodinville is also used for wakeboarding. It has been in many, many water ski and wakeboarding videos. Going to Radar and riding flat water in the middle of the day is a fantastic experience — usually you have to get up early to get flat water around Seattle.

2. Virginia

Offering romance by the bucketful, Virginia is perfect for lovebirds of all types. Forest blankets the state as it slopes from the mountainous west to the Atlantic coast. Roanoke is great for shopping sprees, museum visits, and lovey-dovey dining. Its Mountain View neighborhood appeals to outdoor enthusiasts, with McAfee Knob just a 20-minute drive away.

Visit the historic city of Williamsburg in Virginia. Among the things to do in Williamsburg is a mandatory stop within historic Williamsburg at the Governor's Palace.

3. Kansas City

We are in Kansas City. But let me tell you something before. When I was a child, I believed that the only way to travel was by car. Those long hours in the car united my family and there were plenty of anecdotes and moments to repeat over the years in a meeting.

When I became a teenager and bought my first car, the first thing I did was grab it and take it on the road, which resulted in an adventure full of damage, mechanics in each town and my complete inability to even understand how an engine works.

Today, already entering adulthood and with many miles traveled, I try to repeat the concept of roadtrip every time I can. Half the time, the first thing I do when I get off the plane is to look for the car rental offices to pick up what I already programmed from before getting on the plane. I owed them one of the trips I made recently. Or, at least, I owe them the second part. Welcome to Kansas City.

I do not think we're in Kansas anymore. We arrived, almost 1,000 kilometers later, to Independence, Missouri, a suburb next to Kansas City. Late at night, Kansas City welcomed us with the lights of a city that promised us a lot and from which we expected absolutely nothing.

So we went to sleep to start with the first ray - what in our reality means about 10 in the morning - and a breakfast in the first place we found. This was not a culinary journey, but a trip to get to know a city to which, perhaps, we will be constantly returning for our sports hobbies.

Do you know what it is like to arrive in a city without expectation? It is letting yourself be surprised by every corner that you will find. We arrived in Dallas, we got out of our car and we went driving with the mission to arrive in time to see an NFL game. The trip was not about anything else and, at the same time, it was about everything you can find when you are not looking for anything.

Also, Kansas City did something else. I expected a small city, without much to do, but I found one of the promises of growth in the American Midwest, as it turns out that many technology companies are seeing in the city a great alternative to the madness that exists on the west coast, particularly in Silicon Valley.

I found a city that brims with art in several corners and that raises its hand as one of the most interesting destinations that I have come to know and people who always welcome you with a smile, a good vibe and, above all, with much of the history of a country that I love to travel.

After observing the city from above and a visit to a museum that is worth an article by itself, we walked a bit to find a good place with BBQ, knowing that in this city of Missouri we would easily find a delicacy and decided to kill the afternoon getting at Sealife Kansas City Aquarium, which made it clear that when there is initiative and momentum, there is no barrier to stop.

Our trip was, fundamentally, to go to an NFL game, but we knew that returning to this city was necessary, to say the least. On Sunday, leaving the stadium, we climbed into the car that was given to us in Dallas and we started back, now by a route that would take us to stop in Durant, Oklahoma to sleep, after having crossed several Amish towns in which it gave us courage Having arrived so late we could not stop to try the food or to know the shops of such an interesting community.

And here, in what we do the pause to sleep in Durant, in one of those roadside motels that everyone should ever experience, is when I explain why I always end up renting in the same company the car, and I do not get paid for it. And the reason is quite simple, really.

4. Massachusetts

If you count one-word names only, the usual answer is a lake near Webster, Massachusetts called Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg, at 45 letters. However, the name that is officially recognized by the US Department of the Interior is the much less impressive Lake Chaubunagungamaug, which is said to mean either lake divided by islands or fishing place at the boundary; neutral fishing grounds in the local Algonquin language.

The longer name was coined by a local newspaper editor in the 1920s, who also came up with the humorous and probably inaccurate translation: You fish on your side, I’ll fish on my side, and no one will fish in the middle. It is also locally called Webster Lake, for those intimidated by either Native name.

5. Minnesota

Minneapolis is a nice city in some ways, but it’s not a city of urban epics. The promoters will brag that St. Paul next door produced F. Scott Fitzgerald — true, and Fitzgerald was a writer who left.

Now go to an art museum in Minneapolis — there’s a couple of excellent ones here. Since Prince went to Hades, the greatest living musician here appears to be Lizzo. There’s the great Minnesota Orchestra — which mostly plays imported European classical music. Same goes for theater, a favorite of the Minnesota promoters. The Cohen Brothers are from Minneapolis, and the closest they came to making a movie about the city was Fargo.

6. Idaho

Coeur D’Alene is a tranquil town (although by Idaho’s standards, a big city) by the lake. The view of the lake on the nearby hills is stunning. Plus, the city has some of the best autumn foliage.

7. Kentucky

Louisville — that’s LOO-a-vul, by the way isn’t New York, but it’s a unique place. Louisville is in the Upper South and just over the river from the Midwest. Which means it gets four seasons. Spring and fall in the area are fantastic. Fall doesn’t measure up to New England, but be in Kentucky during the springtime. If you’ve got a car, it’s about 3 hours east to the Red River Gorge in the Appalachian foothills.

The food scene is definitely on the rise and there’s really no better place to sample American liquor near the source than central Kentucky, since the best of it is distilled right there on the edge of town. Even some of the top award-winning beer is at least brewed in Kentucky oak barrels.

Louisville has both a rivertown and a border state feel, with touches of the South, the Midwest, and New York all bunded into one. The Father of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmstead (who designed Central Park) also designed most of Louisville’s parks after the Civil War. The city has some of the colorful eccentricity of New Orleans — without the French Quarter’s raunchy nastiness and tourist crap.

Louisville, in fact, is only barely in the South, but there’s some beautiful Southern flair in Cave Hill Cemetery, which dates from the time when Americans were mixing European architecture in with our own forms. Cave Hill is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world, and is outrageously beautiful in the spring (usually early April in Kentucky).

Louisville is also a great place to see old historic American houses. It’s one of the oldest cities west of the mountains. Here’s Locust Grove, home of the frontiersman George Rogers Clark (brother of explorer William Clark of Lewis & Clark fame).

For people who consider themselves bourbon experts -- those who know all the production methods, history, and have their own private stash at home – Kentucky is probably at the top of their travel bucket list, if they haven't been there already. Kentucky is considered the home of this thoroughly American spirit, and yes, if you're interested in learning more about it, you should visit.

But there is good bourbon to be found across the United States, at distilleries that rival even those in Kentucky. Bourbon connoisseurs can travel from New York City to New Orleans sampling this divine spirit which has captured the heart of our nation, and never be disappointed in what they sip.

8. Texas

Within the last decade or so, the finance industry in Texas has grown by over 45 percent. That makes this state an ideal place to live especially for those in the finance industry. In Austin specifically, finance jobs are paying tremendously well for the middle-income earners. And knowing that this city is famously known as The Live Music Capital of the World, you can be sure that the entertainment options here are many and appealing.

Hamilton Pool Preserve is a natural pool located on the outskirts of Austin. This place is so popular with travelers that you should make a reservation, if you want to take a dip in the summer months. The Santa Elena Canyon is one of the most popular options in the area for those who wish to move in kayak, canoe or raft quietly downstream. The high cliffs reach up to 305 meters. You can also camp along the road.

9. Iowa

The finance sector in this city has thrived in the recent past which means that the economy is looking up for the residents. Jobs are also in plenty here and the wages aren't that bad. For a middle-class family, therefore, you can do pretty well here. As a matter of fact, you will love this city if you are in science, engineering, and tech industries.

Buying a house, residential or rental, is well within your means here and the cost of living isn't a big challenge per se.
