The United States, although often the victim of stereotypes, may just be one of the most varied countries in the whole world.

It’s no surprise given the sheer size of the country, but the USA is home to an eclectic mix of cultures, foods, landscapes and weather systems.

It’s an exciting place to travel – and to travel back to, time and time back again.

Why visit the USA:

I’ll be honest – I never really thought of the USA as an exciting travel destination.

And then I got to know it.

You can spend a lifetime exploring the United States and still leave many pages unturned. The country is simply so expansive and diverse that it’s hard to get a grasp on it as a whole. Instead, it’s best to focus on one or two of its regions at a time, exploring and learning about their food, their natural wonders and their people.

None of the fifty states that make up America has a shortage of things to offer a curious traveller. Instead, they all have their own quirks, their own customs and their own treasures – many of them hidden from the majority of tourists. Seek them out and you’ll be in for a trip that’s full of wonder, amazement and excitement.

Whether you decide to visit the big cities, national parks or something else altogether, you’ll never get bored while travelling the USA. It’s simply not possible.
