United States travel guide

Specialty Museums · Beaches · Nightlife
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.

Wineries & Vineyards · Beer Tastings & Tours · Shopping Malls
Characterized by sandy shores along Lake Michigan dotted with historical lighthouses and pristine inland lakes, Grand Traverse County stands as a notably scenic Midwestern area. The county lies relatively far from population centers to the south, making it an appropriate spot for the expansive groves of cherry trees and peninsula of vineyards jutting out into the bay. Visitors flock here to boat and canoe in summer, snap photos of foliage in fall, and ride snowmobiles in winter. With a population of about 15,000, Traverse City is the sparsely populated county's largest town and the location of its airport.
