United States Information

Ah, America - land of the brave and the free. This country of fifty states (as well as a federal district) is one of the most popular countries in the world - many consider the United States as an important political and cultural superpower in the world. The country is almost a continent on its own, and the wide expanse of American territories makes for a million things to do and see all in one country.

Fun for the whole family

Ellis Island in the New York Harbor is one of the best destinations for wholesome family fun. However, if New York is not included in your itinerary, you can always head over to Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. This theme park is one of the oldest in the world, and was built with Walt Disney still at the helm of the company. Anaheim is also home to the Disneyland Resort, including Downtown Disney, the Disneyland Hotel, and the Disney California Adventure Park.

For the older children with more sophisticated tastes, you can leave out Disneyland and head over to Universal Studios Hollywood, which is the site of the original Los Angeles studios of this famed production company. Enjoy themed rides and attractions that will remind you of your favorite movies, including Jurassic Park, The Mummy, and Transformers.

Go indie

The United States is home to a good number of music festivals featuring up and coming indie bands and performers. The South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas is one of the most popular festivals in the country, often held on March every year.

For adults only

Las Vegas is perfect for tourists who are not traveling with minors - there is plenty of fun to be had in this entertainment capital. Hit the casinos and other popular night spots in the city and experience a more brilliant and edgier America right on the desert.
