    i know a lot of folks from other countries enjoy visiting south dakota, namely mount rushmore, custer state park and the badlands as well as places like wounded knee memorial on the pine ridge indian reservation. there is enough here to keep one busy for their full vacation time and maybe even longer.

    A lot depends on how you are traveling, but some interesting cities would be Washington DC which houses the Smithsonian Institute as well as other wonderful free museums, New York City has endless attractions (but maybe not so different from other large cities of the world). San Francisco is a unique city and close to the Redwood forests, Napa Valley wine country and the beautiful Pacific coast. Two places that are fun if you like country music would be Nashville, Tennessee and Branson, Missouri. Both of these cities have many country music shows where you can see top names perform. Nashville also has a wonderful museum, the Country Music Hall of Fame.

    If you are camping or renting an RV, then you should definitely try to visit some of this country's National Parks as they are amazing places. The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon...there are so many beautiful places to see!  One of the problems with visiting the US and trying to see a lot of the country is that everything is so far apart. I hope that you will have a lot of time to explore the cities as well as sample some of the natural wonders of the U.S.

    If you are in Texas on the second week in March, you could try Sweetwater, Texas.  That is the date of the annual Rattlesnake Roundup.  That is a festival about rattlesnakes that has been held since 1858.  Here is a link to the city web site: http://www.sweetwatertexas.org.

    Texas has a lot places to recommend.  I personally like Dallas and Fortworth; but that is my home so I am a little biased.  Austin probably has more interesting people.  Houston is more of a port city and is near the NASA control centers.  Galveston is a great city.

    If you are in New Orleans, you could drive I-10, I think that is the highway along the gulf coast.  You can run into interesting things driving through Louisiana towards Florida.

    If you're visiting during the autumn season, the Northeast won't disappoint. Maybe stay in Boston, a wonderful city to tour, and drive through Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. The fall foliage and general scenery is spectacular. Quaint and picturesque towns and natural beauty. Otherwise, it depends on what you're looking for. New York is the "capital of the world." Washington D.C. is a treasure that I call "America's Paris." The natural wonders are out West. Some people really want to see the city life of California.

      That is definitely the Northeast! But don't forget the South. Very nice towns and places strewn from Virginia to Louisiana. I'm excited for you!

    It much depends on your interest, but a very beautiful place is Niagara Falls, N.Y.  The American side is just as lovely as the Canadian side, if you can't venture across the border. New York state has many state parks and lakes with wine country among them. All are great vacation spots.

    I would like to recommend you to visit at Theme Park Disneyland and southern California's beaches.
