Crossing the ocean and visiting another continent is something that we highly recommend doing at least once in your life…

So if you’re planning to visit the USA, check out our top 10 list of best places to visit in USA with must-do experiences and take notes!

3. Go on a road trip on Route 66

Who never dreamt about leaving everything behind, packing the essential items and hit the road? Driving through the United States is another must-do experience in which you’ll enjoy breathtaking views and find mythical cafes/restaurants/motels in the middle of nowhere that will teleport you into a classic film.

Route 66 is one of the most famous roads in the world if you’re thinking about a road trip. The route starts in Chicago where you can rent a car (Mustang or Cadillac will surely add extra points to this experience) and travel all over the country until you reach Los Angeles.

4. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas

The “City of Sin” is worth a visit because its eccentricity makes it a very unique place in the world. You can easily feel the glamour by staying in one of its impressive casino hotels like the Venetian which has a replica of St. Mark’s Square inside and even canals with gondolas! Alternatively, you can bet a couple of tokens on the roulettes, Black Jack or the slot machines and cross your fingers…

Las Vegas Hotel - USA

You’ll either love it or hate it, but Las Vegas will not leave you indifferent! Absolutely, Las Vegas is one of the best places to visit in USA!

5. Cross the Golden Gate bridge

San Francisco is a city that is easy to fall in love with and it’s a bit different from other typical American cities. Visiting China Town, riding the famous cable cars, and going to the popular Lombard Street are just some of the essential experiences that can’t be missed in this city.

6. (Try to) Finish a Food Challenge

It’s common sense that Americans are the kings of the street (and junk) food. In this country you’re able to find several Guinness Records, such as: world’s largest hot dog, most layers (60!) in a sandwich or the largest ice cream scoop…

There are many restaurants in the USA that feature food challenges that consist in eating a huge amount of food in record time. If you’re a true foodie or just want to see how far you’re able to go for a free meal, we dare you to try!

7. Cuddle with the stars in Hollywood

The Walk of Fame, the Dolby Theatre (previously known as Kodak Theatre), the palm trees and the classic Hollywood sign that watches the city from above are just some of the elements that make it worth visiting Hollywood.

We suggest walking along the streets and passing by the Walk of Fame so you can place your hands (or feet) on top of your favorite actor/actress/singer and let the city of Los Angeles make you dream big.

In the United States of America everything is big, and its theme parks aren’t an exception. The Disney factory has 4 theme parks and 2 water parks placed throughout the country.

Universal Studios

Universal Studios also has theme parks with the most famous ones located in California and Orlando, where you can enjoy its breathtaking attractions and visit the sets of popular films and series!

9. Go to a live sports event

Popcorns, hot dogs, nachos with cheese, plenty of screams and excitement. Where are we? In any sports event in the USA of course! There’s a lot to choose from: basketball, baseball, ice hockey, American football…

Yankee Stadium - USA

Attending a sports event is another unforgettable experience: the atmosphere, the lights, singing the national anthem, the kiss cams and the athletic cheerleaders convert any simple game into an authentic show!

10. Visit the White House

A visit to the capital couldn’t be excluded from this list. The White House in Washington is an icon that has been the protagonist and has witnessed many key episodes of the American history.
