  1. MIAMI – the city for perfect beach recreation.

When we say Miami, we are talking about Miami Beach – one of the most luxurious resort areas in the world. Here you can see mansions of some of the world’s richest business people and celebrities. Miami is a paradise with 16 kilometers of white-sand coastline, turquoise waters, and rows of palm trees stretching along the ocean.

In Miami, everything is designed for tourists. This place is famous all over the world for its wonderful hotels and resorts with high-end service. Here you can enjoy some of the busiest nightlife in the country; numerous bars, clubs and restaurants will demonstrate their luxury service. Life in Miami seems like an endless festival. Miami has it all to win the hearts of visitors.

  1. SAN-FRANCISCO – the most liberal city in the USA

The level of life in San Francisco is high – and so are the prices! The base of the economy here is tourism: the city holds fifth place in the USA for the quantity of international guests coming here every year; it is also considered one of the ten best cities in the world. Remarkably, a little more than 100 years ago, it was almost completely demolished as a result of a devastating earthquake.

San Francisco is different, and this quality is seen in everything: population, cuisine, design, architecture, mentality and even clothing. The streets of San-Francisco are full of diverse people: poor and rich, hippies and minorities of alternative sexual orientations (which represent 15% of the population).

The main attractions are its famous hills (San Francisco has more than 50 overlook sites) and cable cars, Chinatown with its exotic shops, and Golden Gate Park – which is even bigger than Central Park in New York City.

  1. NEW YORK – the city of possibilities

New York is the unofficial capital of the USA, or its second capital. It is not only one of the biggest cities in the world, but also its economic and cultural center.

The main attractions here are Broadway theaters, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, famous Times Square, Central Park (the most visited one in United States), and, of course, the Statue of Liberty. New York is divided into five boroughs (each of which is a separate county of New York State): The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. More than 50 million tourists come to New York EVERY YEAR. Moreover, New York is a fashion capital and a veritable paradise for “fashionistas” and all those who love clothing and famous brands.

  1. LOS ANGELES – the entertainment city

Los Angeles, or so-called LA, is a huge center of entertainment. The city is quite young, which is why it doesn’t have world famous architectural monuments, but it has a highly developed cinema industry, and you can easily happen upon famous celebrities on LA’s beaches. Millions of tourists come to LA to see what the “American dream” looks like. Here you should visit beloved Disneyland, get a suntan on Malibu or Long Beach, and see a major attraction – Universal Studios.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN THE DC AREA

Read more on "OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN THE DC AREA" »

It would be fair to say that DC isn’t exactly known for having an abundance of outdoor activities.  The majority of people I know consider it “outdoorsy” to enjoy cocktails on a yacht on the Georgetown waterfront.  But there are actually quite a few places to get outside and be active within driving distance of DC.  Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Shenandoah National Park: Shenandoah is my favorite place to get outside in the area.  If I’m feeling tired or my ankle is bothering me, I can drive along Skyline Drive and stop to take photos.  If I want to get a good workout, I can spend the day hiking Old Rag.  If I want an easy hike with a good view, I can hike Hawksbill.  Shenandoah offers so much to do and it’s only an hour and a half from DC.

2. Great Falls, Maryland: Great Falls Maryland is a great place to hike.  You can challenge yourself with the Billy Goat Trail, or take it easy and enjoy the view of the falls from the overlook.

3. Great Falls, Virginia: The Virginia side of Great Falls is one of the best outdoor rock climbing locations in the DC area.

4. Annapolis Rocks: Want one of those epic standing-on-a-rock photos with an unbeatable view and an easy hike?  Head to Annapolis Rocks, Maryland.  And if you’re into rock climbing, do some sport climbing too.

5. Sugarloaf Mountain: I’ve been going to Sugarloaf since I was young.  It’s not too far from DC and there are really great views.  If you like wine, head to one of the local wineries after you hike.

6. Shenandoah Rocks / Nelson Rocks: Want to climb?  Drive to West Virginia.  Check out Shenandoah Rocks for sport climbing or Nelson Rocks for a via ferrata climb.

7. Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke: It’s a 3.5 hour drive from DC, but Roanoke is a nature lover’s paradise.  It has without a doubt some of the best hiking in the area, like the beautiful McAfee Knob.

Five Things to Do in Niagara Falls

Read more on "Five Things to Do in Niagara Falls" »

Thousands of tourists from all over the world come to Niagara Falls every year to admire its beauty and crystal waters. The place is captivating and moves people to visit over and over. Municipal Niagara Falls is divided in two by the international border between the United States and Canada. The Canadian side is in the Province of Ontario, and the American side is in the State of New York. Besides the gorgeous waterfall, shimmering blue river, and amazing natural landscape – there are plenty of activities that tourists and guests of Niagara Falls can partake in to enjoy their holiday.

What to Do in Niagara Falls

First of all, we suggest that you visit Niagara Falls Observation Tower. The view from the top is impeccable: you can appreciate the picturesque waterfalls and boats on the river, watch people strolling along the beautiful Canadian side and observe traffic on Rainbow Bridge carrying vehicles and pedestrians across the border between two countries.

You can also revel in a boat ride on Maid of the Mist – where you will not only get amazing views, but also feel the “vibe” and power, hear the thundering roar, and soak in the spray of the mighty Niagara Falls! There are evening and daytime boat tours for you to take in the beauty of the Falls from water level and to feel like you’re part of the nature.

After the scenic overlook and great boat ride, you can take a special tour called “Cave of the Winds” that happens at the foot of Bridal Veil Falls (Blue Mountains). It is a 40-minute guided educational walking tour for families and those who are not experienced cave explorers. A longer 90-minute tour gives more detailed information, including mysterious ghost stories and folklore legends as well as the history of the cave and waterfall.

There is also the delightfully quaint Niagara Scenic Trolley, which consist of an excursion on a
fun-to-ride bus that takes you around to the most interesting and exciting sites of the park.

Last on our must-visit list is Goat Island, one of the few accessible points on the Niagara River.

As a bonus: if you stay till nightfall, you will see the Falls beautifully illuminated by lights whose colors constantly change. This wonderful spectacle shines brightly over the entire surrounding area. For a fee, you will be given the chance to change the colors of the waterfall the way you like. Isn’t that amazing?
