Q: “I want to visit the United States. What part of it is best?” - Tamara.
A: Hi Tamara, naturally, the answer to this question is all of it.
No, seriously, it all depends on “what you’re up for” as we say in English. Here are some brief examples:
Good weather and hundreds of miles of beaches
If you’re interested in good weather and hundreds of miles of beaches, you might consider California or certainly, breathtaking Hawaii.
There is also the East Coast, which includes states such as New York and Florida. Compared to California, the weather in Florida fluctuates more greatly.
For modern “hip” or “high-energy” cities, there are many to choose from: Seattle, Washington, San Francisco, California, Palo Alto, California near Stanford University. There’s Chicago, Illinois, Houston, Texas, St. Louis, Missouri, New Orleans, Louisiana, etc.
If you prefer something “much bigger” that’s on the west coast, there is Los Angeles. Everything from Hollywood to Disneyland and desert are down in the southern parts of the state, including as you head east wards, Death Valley.
Everything from Nevada to Arizona
If you prefer desert, you always have everything from Nevada to Arizona, the state of Utah and the Grand Canyon, and of course New Mexico. If you stop in the small, but world famous town of Roswell, New Mexico, you can expect to be inundated with folks who will talk to you UFOs.
To them, the Roswell “UFO” crashof 1947 is a sacred cow, much like “Elvis” sightings are in Memphis, Tennessee.
You don’t “question” them.
Speaking of Tennessee, if you prefer things “a bit more country”, you can always visit anywhere from Dallas, Texas, to the states of Oklahoma, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, etc.
Something to offer for everyone
If you prefer something a bit more “sophisticated” but still wish to experience life by the seaside, you can consider everything from the fine shores of Boston, Massachusetts (where all of that original American Revolution “freedom loving stuff” started), to the incredibly diverse city of New York.
America, because of its size and geographic location, has something to offer for everyone. For it has what it is: diversity.
Joke Of The Day
An American tourist asks a Czechman, “Hey, dude, what is the true meaning of Communism?”
Surprised to see that an American, of all people, would ask this question, the Czech man answers:
“Comrade,” he said to the American, who was now all ears. “If you were a dirty pig, would you stop and take a shower?”
“Yes,” answered the American.
“No, you would not,” replied the Czech man. “If you are a dirty pig, you would not care. You are a pig.”
“Now, let me ask you. If you were clean, would you take a shower?”
“Yes,” replied the American.
“No, why would you? You’re already clean. There’s no point.”
“Now, do you understand?” the Czech man asks the American.
“No, I don’t. There’s no point!.”
“There, now you truly understand Communism, my friend.”
