Top 10 Cities/Places to See
1. New York City - New York
Also known as the "Big Apple" or the "city that never sleeps", New York City (NYC) is a top American destination for both domestic and international visitors. American icons, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Times Square, are just a few of the attractions in this wonderful city. While you are in NYC, remember to take the opportunity to see a Broadway show.

2. Los Angeles - California
The excitement of Hollywood, celebrities, and the Pacific Ocean make Los Angeles one of the top tourist destinations. While you are there, stop by the beach in Malibu or Santa Monica, shop on Rodeo Drive and tour Beverly Hills.

3. Chicago - Illinois
Chicago has a beautiful skyline, restaurants, shopping, museums, and activities to easily rival NYC and L.A. Do not forget to take a river tour.

4. Washington D.C. - District of Columbia
The United States' capital city has miles of museums and monuments - almost all of which are free - thereby making it one of the most visited cities. 5. Las Vegas - Nevada
Las Vegas also has blockbuster shows, world class shopping, and top notch restaurants, all of which make this city a true desert oasis.

6. San Francisco - California
Symbolized by the red rafters of the Golden Gate Bridge, this legendary city on the San Francisco Bay is known for its neighborhoods, such as Chinatown and the hippie-turned-haute enclave of Haight-Ashbury. If you stay an extra day, visit the vineyard estates in Napa Valley or the colossal tech campuses of Silicon Valley.

7. Hawaii
Say "Aloha" to an island paradise. From the natural beauty of its beaches and volcanoes to its rich South Pacific culture, Hawaii is the perfect destination to enjoy nature's wonders.

8. Grand Canyon - Arizona
An incredible geological wonder stretching over 200 miles, the Grand Canyon is a deep ravine carved out by the Colorado River over thousands of years and one of the most popular of National Parks. 9. Florida
Beautiful beaches, family-friendly attractions, and the Latino culture and style of Miami make Florida, also known as the "Sunshine State," one of the most popular states. If you are there, stop by to say "Hello" to Mickey Mouse at Disneyworld in Orlando.

10. New Orleans - Louisiana
New Orleans is all about jazz festivals, French roots, and a "laissez-faire" attitude, making it a distinctly different - and popular - destination. From Mardi Gras, New Orleans' biggest party, to Jazz Fest, there are plenty of ways to "let the good times roll" in The Big Easy.
