Planning a trip to the United States? With so many things to do and see, it can be difficult to narrow down the best places to visit. Here are some top places to visit so you can get the most fun out of your trip:

Chicago
The Midwest is often overlooked in favor of both coasts, but this is a mistake. Chicago is packed full of history, incredible architecture, great museums, top-notch shopping, and that midwest charm.
While not many people want to be in Chicago in winter (not even locals) spring, summer, and fall are all excellent times to visit.

Florida
Florida is jam-packed with so many fun cities and towns that you should really just plan a trip to the state and choose where you’d like to go from there. Party in Miami, check out the alligators in the Everglades, watch the sunset in Key West, and of course, take a trip to Disney World in Orlando. Since there’s so much to see and do in Florida, you may want to hire a car so you can travel at your own pace and get off the beaten path a little.

San Diego
Ahh San Diego- everything LA wishes it could be. Located right on the US border next to Tijuana, you’re guaranteed to enjoy excellent Tex Mex here. Kids will love San Diego with the zoo and Sea World so accessible, while adults will enjoy La Jolla, Mission Beach, Old Town, and Little Italy.

New York
New York remains one of the top destinations to visit in the United States for a number of reasons. The city that never sleeps is one of the best places in the world for tourists- as long as you know where to go and what to see. You’ll never get bored here, and there’s always something going on- no matter what you’re interested in.

Austin
By now you’re probably aware that Austin has undergone a revival. In fact it’s now the least Texan place in Texas. But the new tech scene isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it has given the city a young feel. In Austin, you’ll definitely know you’re in Texas (especially when you’re eating) but the city is a blue dot in a red state. Don’t forget to party on 6th street, and if you get a chance, take a road trip to a small town and eat some real southern food.
