You probably know about the various advantages of traveling and maybe about to go on a vacation within areas in America but still have no idea about where to visit. If so, this article might help you with many suggestions.

List Of Places Where You Should Have A Go

Urban Centers

If big cities with state-of-the-art infrastructures, lively crowds, and fancy experience are what you prefer, apart from metropolitan areas that everyone has known about such as New York, San Francisco, Chicago, or Los Angeles, these highly ranked cities might suit what you are looking for.

Portland, Maine

The city’s outstanding architecture and nightlife make it a worth-visiting place.

What is more, Portland is home to a lot of famous ancient artists, who have a long history of prominence in the arts, peaking initially in the early nineteenth century.

That’s why most of the recommended sites of interest are related to museums, galleries, and studios. Here are spots you should consider:

  • Portland Museum of Art
  • Maine Historical Society & Museum
  • Portland Public Library
  • Maine College of Art
  • Merrill Auditorium
  • Kotzschmar Memorial Organ
  • Portland Symphony Orchestra

Regarding the culinary industry, as one of the pioneers of the eat-local movement, Portland has developed a national reputation for the quality of its restaurants, eateries, and food culture, from inventive Asian fusion to creative takes on Italian. Some say it’s the most exciting food city in the country.

Providence, Rhode Island

Although it was once gritty and impoverished, Providence, in the south of Boston, is now a creative hub for arts and culture. 

Take bustling Westminster Street as an example, it is interestingly full of design shops, craft stores, and galleries, as well as the nationally-recognized food scene. 

National Parks

Now that you are so familiar with a few of the best cityscapes and buildings, the infinite asphalt roads may be becoming tedious to you and perhaps you are aching for a natural environment with a green look, then look no further than the national parks. Have a look at the list of national parks in the US and try one out if you want to enjoy some fresh outdoor atmosphere. You will be taken aback by their breathtaking scenes, sights, and features.

A trip to a national park might turn into a hankering for some gardening yourself with concern about environmental issues. You might even be inspired to plant a few trees if you want to make a difference. 


The best thing to do in the boiling hot weather during the summer is probably going swimming and sunbathing at the beach. Plus, white sandy beaches and clear blue seas might bring you some much-needed therapeutic effects.

Here are some names of gorgeous beaches that you should never overlook:

Port Aransas, Texas

Texas may not seem like the priority for a beach getaway, but the Lone Star State’s 350 miles of coastline says differently. 

Apart from an annual three-day sand-sculpting competition, this place is rarely crowded, which makes it an ideal place for peace-seeking travelers. 

There are myriad things to do from communing with the animals, watching dolphins from the Roberts Point Park observation tower, kayaking with Redfish on the Lighthouse Lakes Trail, to spotting roseate spoonbills at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center.

Long Beach, Washington

A wide range of waterfront activities are offered such as kite flying, geoduck, and razor clam digging, and horseback riding along the flat, windswept strand. 

Concerning seafood, you can grab a sloppy hoagie to go (steak, grilled onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and Swiss cheese) on the roadside, and enjoy it while walking on the board and watching the windsurfers breezing by.


Hiking a mountain benefits you more than just an ordinary sight-seeing trip. It can help you evaluate your health status and the feeling of standing on the top of a mountain might refresh your mind as well.

Some recommendations you can take into account:

  • Rocky Mountains: spring and summer are ideal seasons to visit to see the colorful wildflowers bloom.
  • Great Smoky Mountains: its smoky effect attracts visitors to hike, camp, and enjoy the scenic sights. 
  • Uinta Mountains: there are plenty of outdoor activities including rafting, fishing, 

boating, camping, and hiking.

Draw up a detailed plan before you go. Don’t forget to make a checklist of what to do such as accommodation booking, transportation, personal items to bring along, or outfits to take with you during your trip. The more ready you are for the trip, the more enjoyable your travel time will be. Most Importantly, don’t forget that those destinations mentioned above won’t require much money from you!
