Furled by both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the United States is one of the most geographically diverse countries in the world. From the vast expanse of the Grand Canyon, to the jagged peaks of the Rocky Mountains, to the beauty of the Yellow Stone National Park, the US is a real nature lover’s dream. Theatre culture and scintillating nightlife ooze from cities such as Chicago, New York City, and San Francisco, while pristine white sandy beaches line the shores of sunny Miami, not forgetting the allure of Tinseltown in Los Angeles and Mardi Gras fever down in New Orleans. The US is a destination of bountiful experiences.
