Climate

The United States consists of 50 states and borders Canada in the north and Mexico in the south. Due to the size of the country, the climate is varied. From tropical rainforests in Hawaii and tropical savannahs in South Florida to sub-arctic and frozen climates of Alaska. The different climates make the United States an ideal country to travel to at any time of the year. Whenever you'd prefer to travel, there is always a place that matches your ideal holiday temperature.

Indigenous Americans

From the 16th century, the European colonisation of the United States started, which largely eradicated the Indigenous population. But the culture of the Indigenous Americans is inextricably linked to the land and certainly worth getting to know. Go to one of the many museums or visit Indigenous. Hear ancient stories that live on today in the hearts of many Native American tribes.

Get a deeper understanding of the Indigenous American culture

For Hawaii, many customs and traditions are intertwined with the culture. The language is still one of the official languages, although in a modern form, is still one of the languages of the region. After the discovery of the archipelago by James Cook in 1778, the culture has been heavily influenced by foreign travellers, yet Hawaii has managed to retain its unique nature.

Cities

The six largest cities in the United States are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, and Philadelphia. New York and Los Angeles are the most iconic, partly due to the influence of the film industry. No less than 79% of Americans live in cities. New York is the most densely populated, closely followed by Los Angeles. Pass through iconic places such as Las Vegas as you make your way to the spectacular Grand Canyon.

European influence

Approximately 65% of the American population are of European origin. This dates back to the time of the industrialisation of the United States when people from Europe and elsewhere migrated to the United States to work in factories. Many people from other countries also came to the United States in search of 'the American Dream'. Approximately, 40% of the inhabitants of New York were not born in the US and 8.5 million come from 193 different countries.
