“Diversity” says it all. A country of immigrants 3,000 miles wide, the United States of America encompasses worlds within worlds. Geography, culture, politics, religion, race—the US has got a little of everything. From tech-savvy Silicon Valley to the Amish country, the liberal leanings of San Francisco to the traditions of the Bible Belt, the dichotomies of the US are at once puzzling and captivating. In the center, the wheat fields and small towns of the Midwest, traditional Americana lives on. The cities—gritty New York, glitzy Las Vegas, down-to-earth Portland—each give you a different taste of contemporary American culture. From the Rocky Mountains to the Grand Canyon, the US has no shortage of outdoor adventures; its deserts, forests, coasts and bayous beg to be explored. Music lovers will head to Memphis, Detroit and Austin, while those wanting to experience the real deal could do no better than a Super Bowl BBQ. Snowboard and surf, eat cuisines from around the world, rub shoulders with the bronzed-and-beautiful or get down at rodeo—it’s all in the US, waiting with a friendly smile and firm handshake. From “the redwood forests to the gulf stream waters,” from Lewis and Clark to Jack Kerouac, this land was made for traveling.
