Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington
Pike Place Market is a public market that first opened in 1907.

It’s only a short walk from the heart of Seattle so if you’re staying in a Seattle Center hotel, you can easily make your way to Pike Place Market for a delicious and wholesome meal at any time.
Disneyland, Anaheim, California
Everyone knows the happiest place on earth. Although there are Disney parks all over the world, there’s nothing quite like visiting the very first Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Since it’s opening in 1955, the park has undergone many changes, yet it still retains its authentic charm. Don’t have a lot of time to spare? You can’t leave the park without taking a ride on some good old classics like Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean. The parks’ newest attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, is also worth lining up for.
The Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tennessee
Nashville prides itself in being the capital of country music. The city is commonly known as Music City thanks to the establishment of the Grand Ole Opry, a country music stage concert-show, in 1925. You’re in for a wonderful treat when you watch the “Show that Made Country Music Famous.” You can also join a group tour of the house to learn more about Nashville’s illustrious musical history.
Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Yellowstone National Park is known as the world’s first national park. Since its opening in 1872, the grounds have welcomed millions of locals and tourists and has maintained its status as one of the most popular tourist spots in America. There’s a good reason for that — there’s a little something for everyone at Yellowstone — from geysers to waterfalls and hiking trails to camping grounds. You’ll definitely find the experience worthwhile.
The Grand Canyon, Arizona
The Grand Canyon is a breathtaking natural wonder that everyone must see at least once in their life. There’s plenty of ways to appreciate the beauty of the Grand Canyon, and you have the freedom to choose the right way to experience it. Depending on your preferences, you can take in the sights by hiking, driving, or taking a ride on their free shuttle bus.
Niagara Falls, New York
The first landmarks people think about when they hear the word New York are the Empire State Building, Times Square, and The Statue of Liberty. But your visit to New York would be incomplete without a trip to Niagara Falls. The massive group of three waterfalls borders the state of New York and the Canadian province of Ontario and is truly a sight to behold.
With 50 states to visit in the United States, there’s an overwhelming amount of things to see. This short guide will hopefully help you pinpoint the most fascinating sights to put down your bucket list first.
