While over 4 million people take to the Grand Canyon National Park in the summer, few know about the hidden treasure found in Tuweep in the parks North Rim area. It offers excellent opportunities to hike and explore nature at its most vibrant state and, if you’re really feeling adventurous, try the rapids here.

The Gulf Coast

Going on a car trip along Route 66 is something many of us have dreamed about but you should be aware of another roadway in the states that is equally as historic and exciting and that is the one that curves around the Gulf of Mexico. From the Gulf of Mexico you wind down to the towns of the Redneck Riviera and hit the Mississippi and New Orleans before ending up in the Texas desert.


Alaska has a reputation for being cold and inhospitable on the most part, but there is certainly more to Alaska that meets the eye. Take the Alaska Marine Highway ferry as it takes a 3500 mile trip from Bellingham to the Dutch Harbour. This trip allows you to spot nature in its rawest form and you can spend your days relaxing, eating and drinking. This one is perfect for those looking to chill out on their trip to America.


One of the best kept secrets of Delaware is the 3500 acres of salt marshes that are tucked away between Lewes and Dewey Beach. Could there be anything more pleasant than lounging on the beach and listening to the sea crash on the shore? We think not! And when you’re done chilling out at the beach you can hit one of the local bars and restaurants and party the night away.
