America is the land of competition, and each of the U.S. states and territories brings a unique personality and culture to the mix. For example: is America's best beach in Coronado, California; Manele Bay, Hawaii (via Honolulu); Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Nantucket, Massachusetts; or Clearwater Beach, Florida? It depends on who you ask!
If you're really serious about experiencing this country, you'll find America's best barbecue in Austin, Texas. Or will you find it in Kansas City, Kansas? How about Memphis, Tennessee or Chapel Hill, North Carolina? And speaking of American institutions: Should you see the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.; San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge; New York's Statue of Liberty; St. Louis' Gateway Arch; or Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota?
America boasts 58 national parks, each uniquely beautiful. You have a tough decision ahead of you choosing between Arizona's Grand Canyon, Wyoming's Yellowstone National Park, California's Redwood National Park, Alaska's Denali National Park and Maine's spectacular Acadia National Park.
If you're looking for true Americana, your choice is clear: road trip. Will you drive the soothing ocean view and coastal mountains Pacific Highway Route 1, or the truly amazing Beartooth Highway in Montana/Wyoming? How about the Sun Road in Montana through Glacier National Park, or the technically challenging Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee/North Carolina? Or will you tour the Main Street of America itself: U.S. Route 66?
What about New York's Times Square? Nevada's Las Vegas Strip? California's Hollywood Walk of Fame? Or if you're looking for the most controversial of subjects, attend an NFL football game!
