Although I have yet to visit the United States the following are my top 7 man made attractions I must see when I get the chance.
The Capital - Washington D. C. Although this is not one attraction is it the many important monuments that I would like to visit. Including the White House of course - seat of the most powerful man in the world (despite not always being the most intelligent!), the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials as well as the Vietnam Memorial. Each one of these on there own would be worth a visit the fact they are in walking distance of each other is a bonus. Also I would pop into the Smithsonian and the other fine museums on offer.
The Statue of Liberty - New York. Perhaps more for what is represents rather than for being a great piece of art. As one of the great symbols of freedom the statute of liberty is one of those places you must go to say you have been there - even if they no longer let anyone climb up the internal staircase.
Disneyland - Florida. (also known as Walt Disney World).
This is self explanatory. From what I've read and heard from others a fun time for the whole family. The Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Disney MGM studios each would be worth a visit alone. That fact all three are right next to each other is a bonus. While there a visit to Florida beaches would be a great stop and if the timing right watching a liftoff from the Cape Canaveral would be a once in a lifetime experience.
Universal Studios - Orlando, Florida or L. A. California. Either would be good. Again when it comes to theme parks I hear the ones in the U. S. A. are simply unbeatable. When any company invests ten's of millions on one ride, then thats a ride I want to take.
San Antonio - Worth a visit to see the Alamo. I've watched that many movie versions it might be nice to visit the real place. San Antonio itself at night with the canals would also be worth a cruise, it looks very pretty.
Viva Las Vegas - Nevada. Where else can you see Egypt, New York, Paris, Caesars Palace, and Treasure Island all in one place, as well as loose the shirt off your back. Previously regarded for gambling alone, Las Vegas has had billions poured into it to make it home to some of the largest hotels, come entertainment facilities. The fact that many of these are theme just adds to the excitement.
San Francisco - California. Squeezing in the last one is a difficult choice as there is so much to see in the United States. However in my man made list San Francisco gets the nod for the Golden Gate bridge and architecture thats available for view. Might be nice to see it before the next big one knocks it all down again.
This is my top seven list of man-made things I'd like to see in the USA. What's yours?
