When you think of America, you may think of the big cities like New York and Los Angeles. The United States of America has far more to offer than just cities. There are some extraordinary sights to see, and this vast land has a great variety of terrain, landscapes and weather systems to encounter too. Some states are hot and moist while others are cold and almost barren. If you are looking for something a bit more active, step away from the cities, and see what some of the wildest states in America can offer you:
Montana is the 4th biggest state and is home to some of the world’s most incredible places to visit. The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument is a great place to take the kids and talk history. You can find out a great deal about the United States and its origins here. The Glacier National Park is also acres and acres of territory to explore and marvel at. For those who really love being out in the open and getting closer to nature, this should definitely be on your list of places to see. Yellowstone National Park is another great place to spend time with friends, family or even on your own. Take a hike or take a tour to see all that this favorite park can offer. Montana is a great place for being out in the open. The views of the mountains can take your breath away.
Alaska is enormous. This state is nearly bigger than all the other states put together! It is quite sparsely populated for its size too. There is plenty to see and do if you are an outdoor lover. Mountains, snow, rivers, lakes and woodland are plentiful in Alaska. Mount McKinley is the highest point in the United States and can be found in Alaska Interior, where Fairbanks is the only large city. If you do make the trip to this part of the States, you must take the time to see the most perfect volcano in the world – Mount Shishaldin. It smoulders and smokes from time to time as it is active, so this isn’t one for the faint hearted, but certainly a great photo opportunity for a selfie! If you are a keen photographer, Alaska is certainly the place to visit to fill up a few memory cards so be sure to pack plenty. For a holiday this year, why not spend some time in Alaska.
Between the Rocky Mountains and Appalachian Mountains lies Tornado Alley. If you have ever wanted to see one of these bad boys up close and personal, Oklahoma may be the place to visit if you are in the United States of America. There are four mountain regions to explore, and miles and miles of flat land between them. Prairie grasslands and forest cover a fair amount of state, yet much is open for agriculture and farming. There are a whopping fifty state parks to visit and explore while you stay so there will be hundreds of acres for you to cover during your holiday.
