What Are Some Popular Places to Visit in the United States?


Popular places to visit in the United States include Walt Disney World in Florida, the Grand Canyon National Park, Washington D.C. and San Francisco, California. Other options include New York City and a number of beaches along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts.

Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is a combination of parks that includes the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom. The resort also has two water parks: Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. Each park has its own special theme. For example, the Magic Kingdom focuses on Disney characters, while Epcot features pavilions from around the world.

The Grand Canyon in Arizona is another popular vacation spot in the United States, in particular, the overlook at the South Rim Visitor Center. Skywalk, a visitor center on the West Rim, is another option. The arched glass walkway of Skywalk juts over the canyon and creates the illusion of walking on air.

Washington D.C. is the nation's capital and a favorite spot for history and museum buffs. It is close enough to New York City and the Statue of Liberty to visit both places during one vacation. Meanwhile, San Francisco, California, has the Golden Gate Bridge, scenic views, world-class museums and fine restaurants. San Francisco also offers tours of Alcatraz and wine-tasting tours in Napa-Sonoma's wine country.
