There’s no denying the USA loves its national parks but you can’t help but associate visiting America with exploring its cities. It’s home to some of the world’s most famous metropolises and their absolute feast for travellers to explore. We’ve made a list of 5 USA cities you have to visit if you’re travelling there. Some are no-brainers, others are personal favourites of ours. Don’t worry, you can stop off at all of them on the Full Coyote Tour!
This one’s the home of The Coyote Trip team – so no surprises it’s our favourite. One thing which makes Boston so great for travellers is its proximity to Cape Code. That means great beaches are a short drive away plus there’s also the chance to go whale watching! Aside from its coastal location, Boston is one of the most fascinating historical cities in the USA. It’s here the foundations were lain for the American War of Independence which you can learn much more about on a visit to the city. As far food and drink? As a city which prides itself on beer and seafood, rest assured, Bostonians will be eager for you to try what’s on offer.
It’s a heck of a town. Home to over 8 million residents it’s the biggest city in the country, and its buzzing character reflects this.
It’s got plenty of famous attractions to see – the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge (the list goes on). But there’s a lot more to The Big Apple then the sights you see on the screen. Go very slightly deeper and you can take a tour of the urban art in Williamsburg, try morning yoga in Central Park and spot some of the famous film spots located in the city.
Needless to say, the city that never sleeps has a world-beating nightlife.
This one is arguably an underdog on the list but we wanted to get it in here. You might know the city best for being the home of the film Rocky and rest assured you can re-enact scenes from the film while you’re there. That includes running up the Rocky Steps outside the Museum of Art.
There’s a lot more to the city than being a cinematic backdrop though. Making the most of Philadelphia means diving into its culture. That means trying its famous Philly Steaks, taking a tour of its incredible urban art, and fully embracing its nightlife.
If you were thinking we sounded a little too focused on the East Coast, don’t worry, we’ve still got love for the West! One of the things we love best about San Francisco is its cultural diversity. It’s home to one of the biggest and most famous Chinatowns outside Asia. In fact, the city is the inventor of the ‘Chinese’ fortune cookie (sorry to anyone who thought the cookies were authentically Chinese). The city’s large Latino population also means there’s plenty of delicious Latin American food to try – check out our blog to learn more. The city is also home to some iconic attractions – we’d say The Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz are the most famous and you can’t go to San Francisco without paying them a visit.
Home to Hollywood and a whole lot more, we couldn’t make this list without including LA. We’d recommend making the most of the city and doing the classics: visit the Hollywood sign, skate down Venice Beach, stroll along Hollywood Boulevard and visit its theme parks. As for food? When we’re in the city, we always grab a classic California burger!
