Things Every American Should Do In The US In Their Lifetime
Every American should at least see a majestic mountain once in a lifetime, as well as experience being on one if they’re able. Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevada, the Half Dome at Yosemite National Park, and Mount Washington in New Hampshire are all breathtakingly beautiful to see and climb.
Climb a Mountain
Humboldt Redwoods State Park is one of the most beautiful of America's state and national parks. Mighty in nature and marvelous to witness, the redwood forest is one-third of Humboldt’s 53,000 acres, making it the largest expanse of ancient redwoods left on earth.

Arguably, no road is as iconic as America's great lost highway, Route 66. Spanning from Illinois to California, the road is more than 2,000 miles long, and is a journey worth traveling on your own or with the entire family.

There are plenty of American towns that look like they're stuck in time, but if you grew up watching Westerns or dreamt of being a cowboy or cowgirl, no place is better to visit than the Old West. Towns like Leadville, Colorado; Deadwood, South Dakota; or the famous Tombstone, Arizona, will give you a real feel for the era.
Experience the Old West
St. Augustine, "the nation's oldest city," has a fort more than 300 years old, 18th-century style restaurants, and century-old homes that will make you feel like you've been transported back in time. If you're searching for fun in the sun and water, St. Augustine is also one of the best coastal towns in America.
