Traveling the USA is one of the most spectacular and fascinating travel that a man can experience in his entire life, first because of the breath-taking landscapes that the territory offers, and then also because of the friendliness of the American people, famous all over the world.The United States of America is one of the biggest nation in the world from the point of view of the dimensions of his territory and for this reason the best way to travel it is by car.
As a matter of fact with planes and trains you can obviously travel in a quicker and faster way, but you cannot see places and cities in first person, and you cannot feel the real taste of American life as you can do for example by opting for a car hire American style. The United States are too large and full of attractions to be told in these few words, after all we will try to tell something about the most famous and popular places that we recommend to visit during a journey in this nation.
Starting from the west coast, the best place to visit first is of course San Francisco, a city composed of a large metropolitan area called “San Francisco Bay Area” which is the center of the cultural and economic life of the town. In particular is very popular because of his territory covered by steep hills and also for building style which combines Victorian and modern architecture.
Another point of interest are trams that you can find everywhere, and are very popular especially in Europe because of their presence in many TV series. But the most important and famous element in San Francisco’s tourism is Golden Gate Bridge: it was built in 1937 and it is 2.7 kilometer long, and it is the linker between San Francisco Bay and the south part of the Marin Country. The most particular element is the color of the bridge, covered in orange and also the two towers that it has, which are 225 meters above the level of the sea.
Going on with our tour and coming inside the States, we can find Utah and Arizona, less famous than San Francisco but more and more attractive for a special element that they own: Grand Canyon. It is a huge and enormous steep-sided canyon which was made by Colorado River in the past centuries, and now covers 446 kilometers and is more than 1500 meters deep. There are many ways to visit it: as a matter of fact you can see it from every position.
You can go on the top of the mountains and look down the wonderful landscapes offered by the nature, or if you do not like high places you can also visit by walking in the lower part of the canyon, surrounded by rocks and stones that are able to repair from the hot sun. on the other way, if you are too lazy to walk, there is also the chance to visit Grand Canyon by flying above it whit an helicopter: an amazing experience.
In the end, passing on the east coast, how cannot we talk about New York? Also called “The Big Apple” because of its size, it is one of the most important center of America from every point of view. In particular his symbol, famous in every part of the world, is the Statue of Liberty, situated in the entrance of the port of Hudson River, and it represents a sign of hope and welcome to every people who arrives in the town.
These are only a minimal part of the attractions that can be visited in the USA, and the best way to feel it is to see them with your own eyes.
