Attractions in United States of America

Niagara Falls

The 12,000 year old falls straddle the Canada-US border and are accessible by both sides. Various look-out points offer birds-eye views of the falls, though tour operators are also available to provide closer access by boat or helicopter.

The Mall of America

America's largest mall, the Mall of American Bloomington, Minnesota, has more than 400 stores, 20+ restaurants, an aquarium, 14 theatres, 12,000 employees; it's a place that's easy to get lost in. It has been a tourist attraction in its own right, both for domestic and international travellers, since opening in 1992.

The Vegas Strip

Vegas isn't for everyone, but touring its iconic "Strip," the main street running through Sin City, is a memorable experience. With flashing neon lights, casinos built to look like Egyptian pyramids and Parisian and New York landscapes, the Strip offers plenty to keep visitors busy.
