Landmarks in the United States. The White House? Empire State Building? Hollywood? The Grand Canyon? You’d be hard-pushed to find many people who haven’t heard of them. For a country with such a short history, the US has certainly racked up a lot of impressive and interesting things to see well beyond just the undeniably beautiful natural landscapes.
I know what it’s like to live amongst famous landmarks. I’m from the UK, land of the Queen and Buckingham Palace and Stonehenge and so on and so forth. The house I grew up in is older than the USA. But that doesn’t mean that I’m any less fascinated by the wonder held within those 50 unique and thoroughly different states.
But I don’t like to start in an entirely obvious place. A little obvious maybe, but not “Hi Mr President” obvious. And let’s not even get started on him…
No, let’s get stuck into some of the (in my personal opinion) interesting places I’ve visited over the last few years that have stayed with me for one reason or another. Depending on where you’re from, you might well have seen some or all. Maybe you’ll find some ideas for your next trip. Let me know in the comments at the end!
Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tennessee
Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas
John Hancock Tower, Chicago, Illinois
The Alamo, San Antonio, Texas
Plenty more awesome places in the USA to visit coming soon. What do you think? Any of these on your wish list or too touristy for your liking and not fussed?
