The United States is so diverse and has a lot to offer the travel fanatic. From outrageously large malls, to some of the world’s greatest natural beauties. They say everything’s bigger in America, and I do think that’s true. The malls are bigger, the sales are bigger, the drinks are bigger and the theme parks are bigger. The great thing about most cities in the United States is they have something to offer someone of all age groups, from young kids to more mature tourists. I love visiting the States and I’m sure you will too, but don’t forget to look into the requirements for Electronic VISA for US before you go. Here are my top 3 cities to visit in the United States.
1. San Diego
California is a special and famous part of the United States, however the big sister cities in California, such as Los Angeles and San Fransisco are overcrowded, expensive and a pain in the butt to get around. San Diego, on the other hand, offers all the charms of California but also has the benefit of being laid back and a little cheaper. There’s tons do here, including the amazing Zoo which is hands down one of the best I have ever visited. Explore the city, take the trolley down to Tijuana in Mexico or enjoy the smaller city life. San Diego is super cool.
2. New York
No list of top cities in the world, let alone in the United States, would be complete without mentioning New York. Here you’ll find so much art and culture, you’ll be literally spoiled for choice. Many places are overhyped, but New York deserves it. The metro is far reaching and relatively cheap, making it easy to get around the city. While many people comment on how expensive New York is, especially the accommodation, there’s lots of thing you can do here for free such as walking across Brooklyn Bridge, exploring Central Park, even MoMA, one of the best museums in the world, has donation based entry, meaning you pay just what you can afford. Cool!
3. Austin, Texas
This city is becoming a bit of a hipster joint, boasting heaps of cool bars, cafes, and pop up shops. It’s actually a great city to do a bike tour in! The city is scattered with lots of beautiful parks, such as Zilker Metropolitan Park. Here in Austin you’ll also find a booming live music scene, ensuring there’s something to do every night of your visit. It’s a bite sized city compared to many other American cities, ensuring you can really get to know it even if your visit is short.
