Sights of the USA

The United States of America is the country with the most spectacular sights in the world! And just like with everything else in the USA, you have a huge variety of top attractions to choose from. Here are the best sights to visit in the USA:

Northeast USA sights

The noble Northeast of the USA is famous mainly because of its metropolitan region around New York City. Here, you can find the biggest tourist magnets like the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, the One World Trade Center, and the legendary Empire State Building.

However, there are also natural landmarks in the American Northeast such as Niagara Falls, Acadia National Park, and Mount Washington, great amusement parks such as Hersheypark in Pennsylvania, and many historical sites such as the Gettysburg National Military Park.

Sights in the West of the USA

As the most diverse region of the USA, the West has an extraordinary variety of sights to offer. These include natural monuments such as the Horseshoe Bend or the dreamlike Waikiki Beach in Hawaii and unique constructions such as the Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

What makes the West of the United States so special is that it includes both arctic Alaska, with its glaciers like the Mendenhall Glacier, icy national parks like Denali and Gates of the Arctic, and the Nevada desert, where the legendary Las Vegas Strip glows.

Don't miss a trip to one of the sensational national parks like Yosemite or Joshua Tree or a day at Disneyland Park. And if you're in California anyway, pay a visit to Hollywood in Los Angeles and see the Walk of Fame and Universal Studios!

Sights in the Southern states of the USA

The Southern states of the USA will take you on a journey through the impressive history of the United States with its buildings, museums, and historic districts. Visit Graceland in Memphis, the French Quarter and Bourbon Street in New Orleans, or the Old Slave Museum in Charleston.

With natural monuments like the Everglades and the Florida Keys, the Southern states reveal their most beautiful colors. Also, a visit to the Mississippi River Delta, a hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains, or a road trip to the NASA Space Center in Houston and Cape Canaveral in Florida should not be missed.

Need more action? Then tour the amusement parks of the South and visit Universal Orlando Resort, Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens Tampa, and SeaWorld Orlando.

Sights in the Midwest

Take a sightseeing tour and leave the vastness and tranquility of the Midwest behind you. After a few relaxing days on the shores of Lake Michigan, how about a trip to Chicago, where you can stroll through Millennium Park and take a close look at the odd Cloud Gate?

The Midwest also has a gigantic surprise in store: one of the most sensational sights of the USA is undoubtedly Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, where the heads of US presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson are carved into the rock.

If you're looking for fast-paced action in the Midwest, you'll find it during the Indy 500 car race at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana.
