America, the Huge and Beautiful

Best Tourist Attraction In Every State – Business Insider

The U.S. isn’t called “America the Beautiful” for nothing.

Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country’s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty.

But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont’s Ben & Jerry’s Factory and Tennessee’s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley.

From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.

I’ve driven two-thirds of the way across America and back twice in the past two years, and I continue to be struck by just how huge and varied this country is.

Europeans can’t really understand the sort of mindset all this space engenders in the American approach to the world.  If I drove the same distance in Europe, I’d cross have a dozen countries, with as many different languages and histories.  In American, I cross half a dozen states with the same language, history, and shared values.

We think big because we are big.  And there is room for a lot of quirkiness and interesting destinations in a nation as large as we are.

BTW, Neil Gaiman wrote a wonderful book around this theme: American Gods.  I highly recommend it.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
