Van plan een reis naar Noord-Amerika te maken en nog wat ideeën en inspiratie nodig? Condé Nast Traveler heeft een poll gehouden welke steden je zeker moet bezoeken in de USA. De top 10 brengt een grote verscheidenheid. Voor elke reiziger zit er dus wel wat bij! Lees hier meer over de top 10.
1. San Francisco, California
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of San Francisco, California is The Golden Gate Bridge. Residents rave about the culture and the year round mild weather that’s never too hot or too cold. Visitors to San Francisco can stay in some of the country’s most eco-friendly hotels and enjoy organic dining. UpTake’s own Cat Lincoln shares insider information on San Francisco via podcast.
Charleston, South Carolina
2. Charleston, South Carolina Charleston, South Carolina offers a slow paced, historic vacation
opportunity. The city is filled with old buildings and homes closely monitored by an attentive Historical Society. The best way to see Charleston is by taking advantage of a carriage tour.
New York, New York
3. New York City, New York
It should come as no surprise that New York City makes the list of one of the best places to visit in the United States. While there may be arguments about living in The Big Apple, the city is jam packed with tourist attractions. Visitors from all over the world flock to experience everything from world class theater to the Statue of Liberty. The best of the best – in any industry – can be found in New York City.
Santa Fe, Nex Mexico
4. Santa Fe, New Mexico
Travelers looking for a genuine Southwest experience will be happy to see Santa Fe, New Mexico make the list of best American cities to visit. While Santa Fe isn’t known for an exciting night life, it offers an extraordinary amount of excellent restaurants. Santa Fe is a great place for photography enthusiasts to capture sights unseen in other parts of the country.
5. Chicago, Illinois
I love Chicago. I think the best time to visit Chicago is during the
winter holidays when the city is decked out in white lights and
holiday displays. Of course, during the summer months you can find a
festival or free concert on any given weekend. Chicago offers almost
as many entertainment options as New York City, at a (slightly) lower
6. Carmel, California
Visitors to Carmel, California will find a relaxed community and breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. From Point Lobos State Reserve you can watch migrating whales for just $10 per car (or free, if you walk in). Carmel is a great vacation destination for pet lovers, offering pet friendly beaches and shops.
7. Honolulu, Hawaii
Do we really have to make the case for including Honolulu, Hawaii on this list? Reason number one: It’s in Hawaii. As Hawaii native Stefani Pomponi Butler describes it, “Honolulu is much-maligned for being touristy and crowded, but if you love the energy of big cities combined with a tropical locale, this is the place for you.” It certainly has to be the prettiest metropolitan center on the list!
River Street in Savannah, Georgia
8. Savannah, Georgia
Savannah, much like Charleston, offers a slow, Southern vibe to travelers. But Savannah does it with a gracious smile and a reputation for a heck of a party. No trip to Savannah, Georgia is
complete without a stroll and lunch along River Street.
San Diego, CA
9. San Diego, California
There is an endless supply of things to do in San Diego. Whether you prefer amusement parks or museums, you’ll find something that tickles your fancy here. And chances are, the weather will be perfect for whatever you plan.
10. Sedona, Arizona
While listed as one of the top cities in the United States to visit, odds are that most of the photographs you come home with will be of Mother Nature in and around Sedona. A Sedona vacation is perfect for someone into horseback riding and off roading tours. It’s also a
great place to visit if you’re traveling on a budget.
San Francisco is de terechte winnaar, het is een geweldige stad. Alleen Sedona had wat mij betreft wel wat hoger mogen staan in deze top 10. De natuur van Arizona is zo overweldigend mooi! Maar ja, ook San Diego en Honolulu zijn zeker de moeite van een bezoek waard. Eigenlijk moet je een paar maanden uittrekken om door de Verenigde Staten te reizen, er is zoveel moois te zien!
