United States Tourist Guide

United States

The United States continues to attract a large number of tourists, drawn by the diverse landscape and famous cities. Given the size of the country and the fact that it touches two oceans, it is no surprise that it boasts an established tradition of sailing and boating. The diverse coastline, vast lakes and winding rivers provide numerous opportunities for exploring the country from the water.

The United States of America has always been a popular destination for travelers due to its diverse natural beautiful, world-famous cities, and friendly people. The natural beauty of the country is outstanding, ranging from the rugged coastal landscapes on the east and west coasts to the deserts surrounding the Grand Canyon and the rich colors of a New England autumn. Historically, the inhabitants have a strong sense of regionalism, which provides the traveler with constantly changing experiences wherever they choose to go. This is especially reflected in the country's lively cities, with the hustle and bustle of New York City making way for the relaxed California lifestyle of San Francisco or the hedonism of Las Vegas. Whatever your choice of destination in the US, it is sure to be a unique travel experience.

With so much access to water it is no wonder that the US has a strong sailing and cruising culture. The country has massive rivers, plenty of lakes and a diverse coastline that borders on two oceans. Because of this, there are a number of opportunities for the traveler to experience the country's natural landscape and urban diversity. There are opportunities for the first-time boater to the most experienced cruiser. From sailing though the wild landscapes of Alaska, which are ideal for the adventurer and nature lover, to a leisurely steamship ride up the world-famous Mississippi River, taking in centuries of history. Alternatively, you can hire a yacht and set off for some sun-drenched tropical fun in Hawaii in the Pacific, or sail between the natural coves and welcoming ports along the coast of Maine. There is quite simply, so much to do, and so little time.
