North America

For me, traveling in North America is different than when I travel to other regions of the world. There is no new cultural experience when I travel in North America but there are regional sub-cultures. That being said, traveling within North America can have a culture element and there is no shortage of places to go and things to see within North America. When I think of North America, the things that comes to my mind are big cities, lots of entertainment (indoor and outdoor), historical sites, regional points of interest, regional foods, amazing nature and wildlife.

Many people probably think that North America is a single culture but there are many regional cultures in North America. While there are a lot of similarities across North America, each region has its own sub-culture. Traveling across North America you will be able to see these cultural differences in the foods, music and architecture.

I have identified North America as Canada and the United States. Living in the United States, I have been to 33 of the 50 states and 4 of the 13 Canadian provinces. In those travels within North America I have seen many of the most famous sites and many places that I didn’t know much about until I visited them.

North America is full of famous sites to visit. The list below are some of the most famous tourist sites in North America.
• New York City
• San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge
New Orleans
• Hollywood
Florida’s Beaches
• San Antonio River walk
Niagara Falls
• Monument Valley
Alaska’s Inside Passage
• Mt. Rushmore
Las Vegas Strip
Rose Parade

National Parks – the United States has 60 protected areas known as National Parks and Canada has 44 National Parks. The list below are just a few that provides a diversity of things to see.
• Yellowstone National Park

Mount Rainier National Park
• Saguaro National Park
• Sequoia National Park
• Grand Canyon National Park

Although these are the most famous sites in North America, there are hundreds of places to see that most people have never heard of but are amazing places to experience. I will be posting on my experiences in the famous places in North America and I will also be sharing my experiences at many places in North America that I am sure that most people have never heard of but would enjoy seeing if they knew they existed.

I hope that you will enjoy my current post and that you will enjoy my future posts as I present the places in North America as I have seen them through my eyes and my camera.
