The USA (United States of America) is a beautiful and heterogeneous country. Tourists all over the world are attracted by US for its natural wonders, cities, historic landmarks and entertainment venues.
Properly visiting the entire country would take months given the large number of States to visit and the vastness of the territory. A good idea is to make shorter but repetead trips to divide this huge country into smaller destinations that can be visited within a couple of weeks.
In general, the best time to visit the USA is during spring and autumn. However, summer months from May to September are considered the peak time for tourists to visit the country.

The USA is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world. It has 24 UNESCO World Heritage Sites; 21 are single location sites, and 3 are multi-part sites encompassing several locations. It hosts some of the most visited cities in the world: New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Houston, San Antonio, San Diego… just to name a few.
It consists of 50 states, a federal district, five major unincorporated territories, 326 Indian reservations, and nine minor outlying islands.
It is the world’s third or fourth-largest country by geographic area. The United States shares land borders with Canada to the North and Mexico to the South as well as maritime borders with the Bahamas, Cuba and Russia among the others.
The American national parks represent one of the best examples of ecological conscience: for over 120 years the United States has been committed to creating a vast network of nature reserves and the first inauguration (that of Yellowstone park) has been followed in the meantime by another 334. In US parks you generally pay an entrance ticket (from 50 cents to $3 with discounts for those who visit multiple parks) and visitors must adhere to strict regulations that rangers scrupulously observe: from respect for flora and fauna to observance of regulations for camping and picnics. Among the most famous parks: Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, Yellowstone Park…
