United States travel guide

Specialty Museums · Beaches · History Museums
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.

Yosemite National Park travel guide

4.6
World heritage site · Geologic Formations · Waterfalls
Massive granite mountains, towering waterfalls, groves of Giant Sequoia trees, and wilderness as far as the eye can see distinguish the landscape of Yosemite National Park. There isn't just one icon by which the park defines itself; visitors divide their attention between the smooth, round, and colossal face of Half Dome, the sheer cliff of El Capitan, the striking Upper Yosemite Falls, the mighty Vernal Falls, and the widely stretched Yosemite Valley. This landscape draws outdoor enthusiasts with its array of hiking trails, rock-climbing routes, and fishing rivers and streams. Casual visitors feel at home here too, thanks to the handful of paved roads that provide easy vehicle access to numerous vista points and trailheads. Yosemite sees 3.7 million visitors per year on average, but 95 percent of the park is wilderness that offers the opportunity to glimpse black bears, bighorn sheep, and mountain lions.
