Places worth visiting in the US

Hi guys, I am thinking about going to the United states for a visit sometime soon (winter time, for this poor soul who has never seen snow), and I am wondering if people can give me some ideas. Places worth visiting, and since I want to go across the country, what is the best way to do it? Probably be spending like 10 days to 2 weeks? Anything I should look out for??

Probably a weird place to ask a question like this, but yeah... :P

I love road trips!

Are you going in winter or summer? Personally I would never do winter, cross country is too dangerous with the snow and expecially if you drive accross a mountain range. If you want top stay in one place Yellowstone would be incredible in winter, very cold but it's like a fantasy landscape from a book in the winter :D

Also Glacier National park, Yosemite, Grand Canyon is cool at sunset :D

And if you go to a City I think Fransisco is pretty fun, I never get tired of Chinatown XD But the city does have bad neighborhoods you don't want to go into (Like the mission district and the tenderloin).

Hope it helped a little :D

San Francisco and Yosemite are the most beautiful places! NYC of course. ;)

Don't come to Connecticut. Nothing to see here, lol.

I watched documentaries on Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks. You could always just go to USA/Canada in summer (your winter I believe) and then in warmer months come further north and see snow. I can guarantee you, as only half Northern Canadian that we can see snow up into May and June. So if you went up Labrador or Northwest Territories you would see snow almost always.

If you're into a bit of history, I suggest Gettysburg. I might be biased because I live in Pennsylvania, but I think it's very worth it to see. ;)

Visit Colorado if you like mountains. Estes Park is beautiful. There is a lake there, lots of good places to fish if you like fishing. They have nice shops and restaurants.

I totally agree with what Copperarabian said. Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon are places you HAVE to visit. If you visit Fransisco you'll want to make sure you avoid the bad districsts. Those aren't lovely places to be. Oh, I climbed the mountains in Colorado to get to Pahaska's Tepee at the top. If you're an extreme biker then that's paradise for you because they're everywhere on the mountain. The sight was gorgeous!

My colleague went there last year, she sent us a post card, the view IS great!

I am personally a city girl, but I do like the view of country. I love road trips too! But I am not sure if we are allowed behind the wheels in the US, we do drive on the left side of the road...

For cities, I recommend New York City, New York of course. It's expensive though, sadly, but you can't beat it. San Francisco, California is beautiful and the hills are great fun. Boston, Massachussetts has amazing music. If you go in the summer, you can catch the Esplanade concerts that the Boston Pops and conductor Keith Lockhart perform for free. For small but beautiful cities, I recommend Providence, Rhode Island. It has a quaint charm that I adore. And then there's always Los Angeles, California. Lots to do in that area. If you want to learn more about the history of the country, Washington DC and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania are good places.

I'm a city girl myself. Even though I love the countryside, I don't know much about national parks. :( I need to learn more about my own country.
