On that note, here are some of the must-see places in the US. This article is for you whether you are a US citizen or here on holiday.

Branson, MO

When traveling around the US, a visit to Missouri might not be the first thought you have. Sure the major cities have a ton of sites to see and are individual metropolises in their own right; however, when you get to smaller cities like Branson you really get to experience the true Missouri charm.
When it comes to things to do in Branson MO, it’s going to be hard to fit everything in. The town itself is built around theme parks, carnivals, and other fun stuff to keep the average family occupied.

If you get bored, Lake Ozarks is just a couple of hours away, and major cities like Kansas City and St. Louis aren’t more than four hours away.

Orlando, Florida

Florida in general, is a warm, sunny and fun place to visit. The gorgeous beaches make it one of the hottest spots for a summer visit if you want to splash around in the water.
If you are in Orlando, consider visiting Disney World and Universal Studios. If you are traveling with family, Disney world can be one of the most fun adventures that you will certainly remember for years to come.

Moreover, if you get bored, you can always make your way around the state and visit other cities like Miami and Tallahassee. Perhaps you could even visit the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

Smoky Mountains, Tennessee

When it comes to the mountains, TN is one of the best places you can consider. It is one place where the mountains and the culture are so closely intertwined. With Dollywood right next door, you can be sure that there is never a dull moment on your Smoky Mountain holiday.
If you do find yourself in the Smoky’s consider staying in some of the many cabins that they have on rent. A hotel stay simply won’t do the experience justice, and you might leave satisfied if you opt for these amazing cabins instead.

Moreover, while you are there, make sure you experience the rawness of mountain nature. The fresh air, greenery, and wildlife can make this experience ten times better if you spend more time outside than indoors.

Los Angeles, California

LA is perhaps the second most popular city in America after NYC. LA is the heart of all things entertainment and attracts tourists from around the country and the world.

From socialites to movie stars, music personalities, and sportspeople, everyone lives in this city, and don’t be surprised if you see an A-lister next to you at the traffic light.

New York, New York

New York is probably the most identifiable city on the planet. A mere glimpse in a picture is enough for you to cite the city. Whether you are traveling alone or with your family/ friends, make sure you see some of the popular sites around NYC.
Grand central station, Times Square, Central Park, and a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty are a must when visiting the city. Moreover, the place is equipped with a ton of bars, clubs, and cafes to take in the charm of the city.
