Things to Do in USA

Want to know some of the standout things to do in USA? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...

1. The Statue of Liberty, New York City

The Statue of Liberty stands out on Liberty Island, a model of serenity and a symbol of that most determinedly American of values: liberty.

2. The Niagara Falls, New York State

With 168,000 cubic meters of water tumbling over them a minute, the Niagara Falls are quite a sight (and a sound!) For the most dramatic effect, the ‘Maid of the Mist’ boat tour takes visitors right out into the churning waters.

3. The Grand Canyon, Arizona

The Grand Canyon was gouged out of the earth by the Colorado River some six million years ago. One of the world’s most outstanding sites of natural beauty, there are few landscapes on the plant that can compare with its majestic scale.

4. Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Keystone, South Dakota

American sights are rarely lacking in scale, and Mt Rushmore’s absolutely no exception. These 18 meter high statues of presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln (carved out of the granite mountainside in 1925) are yet another iconic image of the country.

5. The White House, Washington, D.C.

Construction of the White House began in the late 18th century. While it may not be the largest, grandest, or even the most beautiful of structures, it’s certainly the most powerful, and, as such, is an absolute must see.
