Travel to the United States with Qatar Airways and see the Statue of Liberty, the neon lights of Las Vegas, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, and the White House amongst innumerable other familiar sights. It’s a country driven by a relentless, infectious optimism and cheerfulness.
Although most visitors to the States tend to head for cities like Chicago, New York and Washington DC, the great thing about the country is that it has such a diversity of landscapes. These are often incredibly beautiful and include unique landscapes like the Everglades in Florida, the soaring crags of the Rocky Mountains, the endless plains of Kansas and Texas and the arid deserts of the southwest.
The national parks are amongst the most spectacular in the world, with both Yosemite and Yellowstone parks offering visitors a whole world of stunning natural landscapes and experiences to enjoy. From the Grand Canyon to the Black Hills, and from the tidy villages of New England to the Everglades’ tropical beaches, the United States is a country of spectacular diversity.
The vastness of the country is reflected in its diversity of cultural influences. Icons from Muhammad Ali and Sitting Bull to Martin Luther King, Jordan and Walt Disney have affected millions of people around the world, inspiring and charming in equal measure. In the field of music, too, everything from country and western to the blues, hip-hop, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll have originated here.
The best way to experience the United States is to see as many regions as possible. You could also start with a good-sized city like New York or Washington DC and visit the parks, museums, art galleries and monuments for a taste of what the States is all about.
