The United States of America is a dream destination for many travellers across the globe. It has innumerable tourist spots that range from amusement parks, historical monuments, restaurants to galleries.

The wide variety of stunning cities and towns will easily grab the attention of the trippers and make their journey a memorable one. But before packing your bags and boarding that flight to the “Land of the Free”, it is imperative that you learn as much as possible about this fabulous country.

Located by both the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean, the United States lies between Canada and Mexico in North America. The country is connected to all parts of the world with dozens of airlines serving the many airports here. Of course, it is the US based airlines that are most popular with travellers who are flying in to the country. American carriers such as Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines, and JetBlue Airways all have a wide global network  and connect US cities with top destinations around the world. When it comes to the busiest US gateways, Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, O’Hare International Airport, and John F. Kennedy International Airport are some of the airports that handle most number of passengers annually. Large cities like New York and Los Angeles are served by multiple international airports.

USA is teeming with many fabulous tourist destinations, and each diametrically different from the other. While Orlando stands out as the finest family holiday destination, Las Vegas is preferred more by people with an urge to experience the pleasurable pursuits in life!

There’s Los Angeles which seems to be the global capital of glitz and glamour but also Washington DC, a much more subdued city which is more likely to attract history and culture lovers. New York is undoubtedly the biggest city of them all and attracts all kinds of people, from prince to pauper. Miami, Boston, and Hawaii are some more fabulous places to visit in the US.

The number of tourist attractions/sites in the country runs into several hundreds. But keeping the cause of brevity in mind, we will only mention a handful of them. Of course, one just couldn’t keep out NYC’s Times SquareStatue of Liberty or Central Park from any sightseeing list. There are at least a dozen more ‘must-sees’ in NYC but we move on.  Grand Canyon, Las Vegas Strip, Golden Gate Bridge, Niagara Falls, Walt Disney World, Central Park, White House, and Universal Studios Hollywood are some of the most famous tourist attractions across the USA.

Not many leisure travellers worry about the weather when they plan a visit to the US.  The USA is a large country with astounding seasonal variations. There is always some part of the country at its climatic peak no matter what time of year it is. In very broad terms, September-October is the best time to be in the country as most of the cities enjoy excellent weather during fall.

People in America love to have a good time with their friends and family and there are good many occasions in the calendar year to do so. From the global phenomenon New Year’s Eve to children favourite Halloween (31st October), there are plenty of events and festivals celebrated by people here. Independence Day (4th July), Martin Luther King Day (January), St. Patrick’s Day (March), Easter (Variable dates) and Thanksgiving (November) are few others.

American food is easily available all over the world but that doesn’t stop you from enjoying it here. From hot dogs to juicy steaks and from apple pies to nachos, you can have the most heart pleasing food here. The country also boasts some of the world’s top rated restaurants.

Finally, we come to tips and advice that could come in handy for you. U.S. medical costs are very expensive and it is highly recommended that you get a good travel health insurance plan. As mentioned above, weather varies a great deal in this large country, so come prepared with proper clothing. It is best that foreign tourists avoid getting into discussions on topics like war and gun control.
