The Top 3 American States: What Should You Do In Each Of Them?

America is a vast and exciting place to explore. It’s such a huge country that even domestic travel is booming. After all, if you’ve only ever lived in one state, then there are so many U.S. locations that you’ve yet to experience. So, where should a tourist begin on an excursion across America? Which states are the best ones to visit? Which cities should you see in each state? One person can’t see everything on a trip to the States because this nation is just too big. Luckily, the best destinations have been hand-picked in this article.

This sunny western state is one of the best states in the entire country. California draws visitors from all over the world to plenty of its major cities. In particular, Los Angeles attracts massive numbers of tourists. This exciting city is home to Hollywood, so that is a big attraction for many people. Heading up the Hollywood Hills and seeing the L.A. skyline is an unforgettable experience.

The Griffith Observatory is a great place to visit, too. Make sure you get in the queue for the telescope. Of course, if you want a relaxing experience after all of that excitement, then California has great cities, such as Roseville, too. It offers a great break from the city, with plenty of places for walks or bike rides. You might want to check out Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, whilst you’re there. There’s opportunity for kayaking and fishing, if you like water activities.


Massachusetts is another great state that’s worth visiting in America. There’s a lot to do in this huge state, but you should definitely start by checking out the spectacular town of Danvers. Historically, it’s a fascinating place, given its original name: Salem Village. It was the location of the famous Salem witch trials. Of course, there’s more to Danvers than an intriguing history lesson.

If you head down to the village of Danversport, you should check out the boating club. You could have a great experience on the water. This is just one destination in a ginormous state; there are plenty of other great things to see and do in Massachusetts, including the lively college town of Boston.

New York

This wouldn’t be an article about the top American states if New York were left off the list. If you’re going to visit this wonderful state on the east coast, then, obviously, you’ll want to start by visiting NYC. This megacity makes up most of the state, after all. There are so many iconic landmarks that are worth seeing in real life. The Empire State Building might be dwarfed by many newer and shinier skyscrapers, but it’s still one of the most impressive structures in New York City. It offers breathtaking views of the city.

Central Park is a breath of fresh air in the heart of a manmade maze. The Statue of Liberty is a stunning landmark to see in person, too. The list of famous spots for sightseeing is seemingly neverending.

Of course, there’s more to this state than the City of New York. It’s an amazing place, obviously, but American states are so large that it seems like a waste to just stay in one place. You should head north to explore the natural beauty of New York. Niagara Falls can be found at the border between America and Canada. These spectacular waterfalls are even more awe-inspiring in person than they are in pictures. If you’re going to explore New York, then you should definitely visit Niagara Falls. It’s a beautiful place, and even that statement doesn’t do the location justice.

Which other U.S. state would you add if the list was a top 5?

  1. Nice post! I would add Texas to the list, just based on sheer size. I’ve really only been to San Antonio, but I’ve heard – and you would know better than I would – that Austin has lots to do as well.

    Has Salem officially changed its name to Danvers?!


    1. I would probably add Texas too. Austin does have tons to do, and Dallas, and Houston.
      I think Salem and Danvers are just super close to each other.
