Park is More than 700 miles of trails with diverse landscapes & abundant wildlife.
Most of the park was still closed and snow remained around the place too early in the year. You will be amazed by the area: beautiful snowy mountains rise high to the sky; a beautiful still lake where the great mountains and glaciers can be enjoyed; and many hiking trails.

Denver is a mixture of outdoor roughness and big urban life city, not just because of it’s legal for marijuana / cannabis.
The locals are unbelievably friendly and clean. It has an enormous craft beer scene, fine restaurants (including Sushi Sasa), a big international airport with plenty of connections and close proximity to the mountains of the Republic of Boulder.

10. New York City
The city that never sleeps. ‘Nuff said. You can’t go wrong here.
New York City consists of five districts that meet the Atlantic Ocean on the Hudson River. Its heart lies in Manhattan, one of the most important business, financial and cultural centres, a densely populated district in the world. Skyscrapers like the Empire State Building and the sprawling Central Park include its iconic sites. The theater is held in Times Square, which has neon lighting.
I was most surprised by this Mississippi city. I didn’t know anything about it, but Natchez was recommended as a place to see historic 19th-century homes, built by isolated plantation owners wanting to get away in the summer and interact and socialize with each other. As cotton became king, the houses became ever larger and more elaborate. Now, they are historic monuments, and you can tour them while enjoying a view of the Mississippi River. It’s far off the beaten path — and my favorite discovery from my last road trip
13. Grand Canyon
Words can’t accurately describe how incredible the Grand Canyon is. It’s breathtaking in so many ways —its sheer size, fantastic depth, red hues, and striking vistas. Most people simply stand at the edge of the canyon and look out across it, but its true size and beauty are best appreciated with a hike down to the bottom. Make the time to hike down to the Colorado River, hike the less visited trails, spend the night, and hike back up for sunset.
A little bit country, a little bit tech, Nashville is one of the fastest-growing cities in the US and rightly so. It’s got a wonderful music scene (duh), a growing cocktail bar scene, and some down-home Southern restaurants. There’s not a lot of “touristy stuff” to do here, but what make this city one of my favorites are the music, the food, the wildly friendly and happy people, and the positive energy the city seems to exude. When you’re here, plan to spend a few hours at the Tennessee State Museum. It goes into great (though sometimes very one-sided) detail about the state’s history, but it’s more exciting than you might think.
15. San Francisco
Food of every nature, hipsters, high tech, and a diverse population make San Francisco one of my favorite places to visit. Additionally, it’s close to some wonderful national parks, like Muir Woods, where you can escape the city and go hiking amid giant trees
This city is changing fast (for good or ill) and I’m always looking forward to my next visit. San Francisco has so much to do that you need at least four days to really appreciate it. The city is one of the cultural centers of the United States and not to be missed.
Miami is a southeastern international city. Its Cuban impact can be seen in cafés and cigar shops in Little Havana, Calle Ocho. Miami Beach, home to southern beach, is located on the barrier islands in the turquoise waters of Biscayne Bay.
It is known for its colorful art deco buildings, white sand, surfing hotels and trendy night clubs.
White sand beaches, Cuban cuisine, wild nightlife, beautiful people and great warm weather – what’s wrong with Miami! Well, I don’t believe I can live here ever, but Miami is perfect for a sun-fun weekend.
17. San Diego
San Diego weather is warm and sunny and produces an always healthy, friendly, well-off community who likes outdoors – from walking, beach days or running … and are always glad to show people their place.
The core of Gaslamp and the popular Pacific Beach have numerous trendy seafood restaurants, busy bars and some drastically evolving taco stalls. San Diego we hug.
18. California Wine Country
California has one of the best wines on earth and you will be rewarded with some fantastic food, in addition to wine, by visits to the Sonoma and Napa Valleys regions. Take the San Francisco short trip and learn to love the wine!
Tip: Sonoma is cheaper than Napa.
19. Lake Tahoe
While California’s dryland has unfortunately reduced the lake’s water level and the flora and fauna around it, Lake Tahoe still remains beautiful and impressive. This is an excellent location for walking and boating in the summer and skiing in winter. It is surrounded by small mountain communities.
20. Anywhere in Montana
Many of the storm of Montana have been written, but everything’s incorrect. Even better than words could describe it. It is the most amazing insane condition I ever had, full of wonderful mountains and hills that the eye can see. The people are cool, friendly and open-air, too. It’d be Montana if I had to pick a favorite state. We love Montana. We love Montana only.
21. Washington D.C.
The United States capital is a vibrant and international city, and we love that. It is NYC’s second largest in the diversity of people and food (with so many international assistance organizations and embassies expected).
In this city you hear a million accents! Put into the free museum of Smithson, several parks and the banks to stroll or ride, and many monuments and historical government buildings and DC. It’s a great place to stay, relax, eat and drink!
22. Cape Cod
We spent a lot of summers on the Cape since it’s where New Englanders escape for the summer.
You’ll find plenty of small beach towns along the coast (Provincetown and Hyannis being the most famous but we also love Chatham, Falmouth, Wellfleet, and Brewster). If you’re looking for seafood, beaches, boardwalks, and hat perfect family vacation, visit the Cape!
We love Boston and appreciate home visits. It’s historic, Boston rocks (founded in 1630), little and easy, full of wonderful and loyal people.
The Freedom Trail, the Faneuil Hall, the JFK Museum and the Boston Commons and the Public Garden, as well as some of the best Italian and seafood restaurant in the country, are the venues for numerous activities. Enjoy the best brunch in the city at the Zaftigs! This is wicked! This is wicked!
24. Las Vegas
Vegas, Baby, Vegas! Many have the light and the light of games shut off, but Vegas is much more than the casinos, costly clubs and hotels in the famous Strip.
The Red Rocks National Park, a rising art scene, a thriving technological environment thanks to Tony Hsieh’s downtown project and lots of concerts and shows are all in the immediate vicinity. Leaves the Strip and explore the real Vegas (as the Strip actually is in Paradise, NV, rather than Las Vegas), and see why people want to live here.
It’s amazing Portland. We would move there if it had better connections to a larger airport. There is an amazing food-truck-scene, trendy custom-made bars and cocktail lounges, a craft beer-scene that is the faith of locals, parks for relaxing (with a beautiful Japanese garden), a vibrant art scene and mountain walks.
Portland is also a great city in the summer when the weather is good and there are several festivals and activities, such as the World Dominance Summit and the International Portland Beer Festival.
It also boasts a vibrant downtown neighborhood, fresh seafood, authentic Asian cuisine, museums and funky nightlife, home to the small company called Starbucks.
You can take a city subterranean tour at the historic Pioneer Square (a cool hiking experience). Furthermore, you’re only on the water and you can discover some tiny islands by weather permitting into Elliot Bay. Seattle’s just a nice place.
Everybody is happy, there are always things to do, it is techy. In addition, there are craft beer and coffee, which you can’t resist!
This town was well-known for its Old West days, tucked away in western South Dakota, worthy of mention as the HBO series was focused on.
It’s a kitschy and re-created sort of place, but nevertheless a cool place to taste the ancient borders. Also close Blacken Hills and Mount Rushmore. It is conveniently located.
28. Kansas City
We really like Kansas City, with some of the best BBQs in the country, a vibrant city center and state-of-the-art technology like Google Fiber. There will also be a comprehensive and brilliant jazz museum and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, which will open their eyes. We wish, but that’s more incentive to come back. You should only spend more time.
29. Yosemite National Park
Yosemite National Park is one of California’s most spectacular natural ecosystems. It has almost 1,200 kms of pure awe: soaring waterfalls, millennium-old Sequoia trees, stunning, intimidating cliff faces and some of the most unusual formations of rock in the USA.
The majority of tourism activities are performed within Yosemite Valley’s 8 square-mile range, given their enormous size. The most prominent park landmarks, Half Dome and El Capitan, as well as excellent walking paths around the natural parks are to be found here.
Yosemita can even be enjoyed by inexperienced walkers: local adventure equipment has guided tours and climbing courses. Just don’t expect it yourself to experience it. Like many other tourist destinations in the USA, crowds are the biggest obstacles to a pleasant Yosemite holiday-about 4 million visitors each year.
However, if you go in time (and start your day a little earlier than usual), the wonders of Mother Nature will show itself in a beautiful and calm fashion to you.
30. Sedona in Arizona
Sedona is often referred to as one of the most beautiful places in America. You’ll find no other location such a dramatically colorful landscape. For years talented and young artists have been inspired by the soaring red rocks and pointed sandstone butts, which almost always suit a blue sky. Furthermore, filmmakers in north-central Arizona picked these fiery rock formations to serve as a backdrop to hits such as “3:10-Yuma,” “Broken Arrow” and “Midnight Run.”
But Sedona is more than red rock and good appearance. Over recent decades, spiritualists have flown to the region to benefit from the many “vortexes” of the new era with supposed spirit-balancing powers.
You’re really searching for a way to fulfill your yen? Book an evening in one of many spas in Sedona. Traditional local treatments – including red clay wraps and blue corn body scrubs – followed by a bottle of local wine are perfect opportunities for relaxation after a day on the trails.
It’s impossible to list all “must-see” places of United States in the same blog post. After all, over 350 million people live in the country and cover 3.8 million kilometres. This list should show you in the right direction and spend the time, however for those who are looking for the right starting point, what to see and places to visit.
Only switch off the highways, head to the small towns and discover some of your favorites. The best of America is still away from the major highways, with small diners, shops and welcoming people!
