Some Places to Visit in the United States

Going to the United States can be very fun and exciting.  It may be a tourist visit, business trip, family tour, or work-related assignment.  There are lots of wonderful places in the US that you shouldn’t miss.     

Golden Gate Bridge, a popular landmark in San Francisco, has been acclaimed as one of the most beautiful bridges in the world.  Other worth-seeing spots in California are Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 that give you a great dining experience and a relaxing view of San Francisco Bay.  The Palace of Fine Arts is another attraction to visit. Not quite far from San Francisco is the well-known Stanford University which has an exquisite and unique architecture.

Another famous place in California is the Yosemite National Park. It is where you can see El Capitan, a large granite monolith that is about 3,600 ft high and loved by rock climbers. The scenic Half Dome and Yosemite Falls are also part of that national park. Then there’s Lake Tahoe near the border between California and Nevada.

Las Vegas, also called “the city that never sleeps”, is very popular in Nevada.  A short drive from Las Vegas brings you to the striking rock formations of Red Rock Canyon. From Las Vegas, another attraction is the Hoover Dam on the border of Nevada and Arizona. It is a massive dam named after a former US president and used to generate electricity for Nevada, Arizona and southern California.

In San Diego, there are lovely beaches like the Mission Beach.  The well-known SeaWorld is also in the area. If you want to visit museums, Balboa Park in San Diego is one good place to explore.
