UNITED STATES- There are many places to travel to in the United States all the time, but especially over winter break, when students are on vacation and their parents are ready to get away from all the frigid weather. It’s a very hard decision for people to decide where they want to travel to, but there are the top five places to travel to in the United States which provide an interesting environment and attractions for many people and especially families.

Yellowstone National Park is the fifth best place to travel to in the United States. “Yellowstone National Park was the world’s first national park, set aside in 1872 to preserve the vast number of geysers and hot springs, as well as to protect the incredible wildlife and rugged beauty of the area.
The most famous geyser in the park is Old Faithful Geyser which erupts every 91 minutes. Yellowstone is also home to one of the finest wildlife habitats in North America” (Touropia, 2017).
Las Vegas Nevada is the fourth best place to travel to in the United States.
“Springing up from the desert in southeastern Nevada, Las Vegas is a major US city world renowned for its casinos, luxury hotels, comedy acts, musical productions and extravagant shows. Most of the city’s main attractions are all concentrated within the area commonly referred to as the Strip.”
In addition to gambling, showgirls, and lavish performances, Las Vegas offers plenty more to suit people of all ages and interests” (Touropia, 2017).
San Francisco is the third best place to travel to in the United States.
“Best known for the Golden Gate, cable cars and steep, rolling streets, San Francisco is a beautiful city in northern California, set on the tip of a peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area. Undoubtedly, the Golden Gate Bridge is the city’s number one attraction.
Tourists can drive, bike ride, or walk across this famous suspension bridge to admire and photograph stunning views” (Touropia, 2017).
The Grand Canyon located in northern Arizona is the second best place to travel to in the United States.
“Attracting millions of visitors every year, the Grand Canyon is one of the best places to visit in the USA. Located in northern Arizona, this massive natural wonder was carved by the Colorado River over a period of several million years.”
It is not the deepest or the longest canyon in the world but the overwhelming size and colorful landscape offers visitor vistas that are hard to match” (Touropia, 2017).
The first and final best place to travel to in the United States is New York City.
“The largest and most populated city in the USA, New York City is often called the city that never sleeps because it is constantly buzzing with activity. Located in New York state on one of the world’s largest natural harbors, New York City is made up of five boroughs, which include, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx.
World renowned for its concentration of skyscrapers and famous attractions, New York City is what many foreigners visualize when they think of the USA” (Touropia, 2017). These are all excellent vacation spots to travel to anytime of the year, but especially over winter break.
They are all breath-taking sites and they represent the United States for what it truly is; an extraordinary place to live. Everyone looks at these places in their own way and they each have their own opinions on them.
Some would choose the busy New York City over the quiet Grand Canyon. Others might find Las Vegas an exciting place to visit, or a boring place to travel to.
¨I guess I would have to go with the Grand Canyon because you kind of have to experience it because taking pictures and seeing pictures just doesn’t suffice,¨ said freshman Michael Golden.
If you were to visit these places, you can’t just stand there. You have to have the whole experience of your wonderful destination that you chose to travel to.
There’s more to a vacation over winter break to somewhere warm then just sitting around or taking pictures. Live the experience, for it only happens once.
