Once you get over the bright lights, strong accents and giant cups of soda pop, you can see what the real United States of America looks like. A country that despite its increasingly questionable reputation still draws millions of tourists every year, and remains at the top of everyone's list of places they would most like to go.
It is hard to think of a country more diverse in environment, people, and history. Despite the seemingly mass monoculture that is today known as ‘American’, it is arguably the most multicultural country on the planet. The many cultural, racial and ethnic influences that have forged this vast country have blended to create a heady cultural kaleidoscope that lies beneath the shiny, larger than life and slightly obnoxious exterior that is on display to the world.
With cities that hold everything you desire, whether it’s the bright lights of Las Vegas, the fast paced streets of New York City, the laid-back cool of San Francisco, or the music-filled streets of New Orleans, not to mention everything in between, the Unites States actually does have something for everybody.
With so much focus on its cities, it is sometimes easy to forget the wealth of natural wonders this vast country holds. From the snow capped mountains of Colorado, to the golden beaches of California, from the wide open plains of Montana to the tropical tangles of Florida, the United States not only has it all, but has more of it all than anywhere else.
