In the northeastern United States, the vast pine and coniferous forests of Maine and the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania have already won over nature lovers. Plus, the northeast is home to rivers and cascades that have carved out the region.
From cross-country skiing to hikes in the national parks in the regions of Vermont and Maine, visitors are spoilt for choice.
With millions of consumers, big money and a hyper-consumption society, New York is a veritable shopping paradise. It would be impossible to list all of the commercial districts given the countless different shops in the city, from little second-hand clothes stores to huge shopping malls. There really is an impressive choice, from the designer stores on 5th Avenue, to the independent specialist shops in Greenwich Village, the fashionable shopping malls in Soho, to the colourful Chinatown, and of course the classic 'temples' that are Macy's and Bloomingdales.
New York's pronounced taste for materialism and money should not overshadow its cultural dimension. More than any other American city, the Big Apple places an emphasis on the arts and knowledge. It has some of the richest museums on the planet in terms of valuable art, and you really ought to see at least the most famous ones.
