There's much more to do: fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, take a stroll through Lahaina Front Street, walk around Lahaina Banyan Court, and get interesting insight from Tours.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Heart of the Kona Coast

There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at Natural Bridge Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Brink of the Lower Falls Trail, witness a stunning natural landmark at Upper Geyser Basin, and identify plant and animal life at Grand Loop Road.

More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
