There are a huge number of unique fabulous cities in America that absolutely worth a trip, but just don't get their fair share of the limelight. Have you ever been to Bar Harbor Maine or Savannah Georgia or Portland Oregon? If the answer is No, then you should! But if I have to choose top ten must-visit cities in America, I have to stay with the usual suspects. After all, you haven’t been to America if you haven’t seen cultural icons like the Statue of Liberty and Golden Gate Bridge, or natural features like Grand Canyon and Lake Tahoe. So, here you are 10 Must Visit Cities in the United States.
I think everybody would agree that New York is one of the most fascinating cities not only in the USA but in the entire world. Therefore it HAS to be on must-see in America list. What makes it so fascinating? First, of course, its architecture – Manhattan skyline is absolutely incredible. Second, its multicultural personality – New York is a true melting pot of ethnicities and cultures. And finally, nowhere else in a world you would find that many best restaurant, best hotels, museums and theaters concentrated in such a small land area of 23 square miles - that’s how small Manhattan is. And whatever your passion in culture, entertainment or food is, you’ll find it here. Don’t forget that besides Manhattan, there are four other boroughs in New York with plenty of things to do and to see.
Well, if New York has everything, then maybe the must-visit cities in America list should has only one city – New York? Not quite right. There are much more in this incredible country than just New York.
While New York is defined by its skyline, Boston is distinguished by its vibrant neighborhoods. From the fashionable Back Bay to oldest Beacon Hill to colorful Chinatown to historic North End – all neighborhoods of Boston has its own personality and distinct appeal. A stroll around this old city is like reading an American history textbook. Follow the red line marking the Freedom Trail and come across Boston Common, the Old North Church, Paul Revere's house and Bunker Hill. Each stop represents a chapter in American history. Being cultural and commercial hub of New England, Boston absorbed all best from the region, including best food such as Maine lobster and New England clam chowder. Try them when in Boston, they are best you can find in all country.
The city is particularly glorious in spring, when its many gardens and park are in bloom. While visiting the White House, take the White House Garden tour and view the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden and Rose Garden – they are absolutely splendid. Sightseeing in Washington DC wouldn’t cost much – most of Washington DC museums and memorials are free. Take a ride to the top of the Washington Monument to see spectacular views of the city and surroundings. Stroll cobblestone streets of Georgetown, the city’s most beautiful neighborhood with great restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and shops. Relax at Dumbarton Oaks gardens, one of the loveliest spots in the city. And if you have time, explore surroundings - Maryland has plenty of things to offer to a curious traveler. Of course, to try Maryland Blue Crab is a must, when you are there!

The city's famous steep hills and trolley cars, astonishing bay views, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, lively Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown, numerous beautiful gardens and delicious food make San Francisco very unique and, from my point of view, the most beautiful city in America. When in San Francisco, take a trip to Napa Valley for a glass of wine or two while enjoying breathtaking scenery of a wine country. Or go to Lake Tahoe, to see “the jewel of the Sierras”, one of the most beautiful lakes in the country.
