The USA is located slap bang in the middle of North America and takes up most of the continent. Made up of 50 different and unique states, the country borders Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. It also shares coasts with the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Pretty much every type of landscape can be found in the States, from the Rocky Mountains to the Mojave Desert, the Great Plains to the volcanic Yellowstone National Park and of course the miles and miles of sandy beaches in sunshine states like California and Florida. Diverse is an understatement when it comes to American geography- you’d need 3 lifetimes to experience it all.

In terms of climate, the USA is incredibly variable and weather characteristics differ from state to state. For instance Nevada is baking hot, while Alaska is freezing cold, for the most part. There is a certain tropical feel to southern areas, particularly Florida and of course in the Hawaiian Islands. While most popular tourist areas are pleasant and warm during peak season, generally summer, don’t be surprised if heavy rain suddenly starts pouring as that’s just the way it is!

It’s no surprise that tourism is a big business in America. With such a huge amount of things to see and do it’s certainly a good excuse to plan a visit. Literally millions of international visitors flock to the States every year, and even more Americans travel internally. The USA is just awesome in every respect, whether it’s culture, history, natural beauty, entertainment or shopping. While airport security may have been increased massively in recent years, once you make it past immigration, the country opens up and welcomes you in.
