Top 5 cities to visit in the US on a first trip:
Visit New York
New York is the absolute inevitability of a trip to the United States . It’s simple: we believe ourselves in the setting of a giant movie from the first step in the city. Yellow taxis, sounds, colors, skyscrapers, Central Park, … We feel very small and at the same time the city exudes incredible energy. And yet, I’m far from being a city fan: my thing is nature and the great outdoors. But New York is truly a unique experience that I recommend to everyone!
See San Francisco
Without Francisco it is the most European city of the United States. Whether at the level of architecture, the general atmosphere, or even the mentality of the inhabitants. We love or hate its hippie chic side, but in any case it’s up to see. The Golden Gate Bridge is worth a visit, especially in the early morning when it is still in the mist. Beware of the climate, because San Francisco may be in California, but it is still cool outside of the season.
Ten years ago, no tourist would have thought of going to Seattle. Today, tourism is exploding in the city. And I’m sure you know why. No ? Because it is the city that serves as a backdrop to the Fifty Shades of Gray story . Many ‘special Christian Gray’ tours have appeared since the novel’s success, and it’s not uncommon to meet fans in search of its iconic locations. Fortunately, Seattle is a city whose interest goes well beyond this story to the rose water (you will forgive me, I really did not hang …). For nature lovers, there is plenty to see and do around Seattle.
See New Orleans and Louisiana
Devastated by the terrible hurricane Katrina a few years ago, New Orleans still has a lot to offer to passing visitors. If you like history, its atypical past will fascinate you. Marked by French, Creole, African and of course American culture , it is a cultural and culinary delight . So of course, everything is not perfect in this city, especially the crime that is still too high. But it’s a must see place before all the little independent jazz venues get engulfed and replaced by Starbucks and McDonalds.
