Any person would find it difficult trying to come up with a list of the most noteworthy things to visit in the United States, but we gave it a try anyway. The country itself has a population of 310 million people (third largest in the world), and it is absolutely enormous. What tourists often fail to realize, is that movies and television shows don’t really portray the country accurately, and they travel to the United States expecting a glamorous overreacted image of what America really is.
In reality, the country is large, complex, and incredibly diverse all the way through. So complex actually, that it been called a ‘melting pot’ of cultures on many occasions, a fact that you can witness yourself as you travel through its many states, each with its distinct regional identity.
Often called the Second City, Chicago has a bit of New York’s glamor, which is interesting considering that it is the second American city after New York in both size and population. A symbol of what America is all about, Chicago is populated by high end restaurants, shopping centers, museums, and skyscrapers. Above all, Chicago is the type of city that stays with you for a long time after you’ve left.
