There are plenty of events and attractions in the different states of the USA that someone can take part in or visit for fun during a holiday or even a vacation. Actually, some people travel from other continents to the USA just to be part of the events and to see the different attractions.
Here are some of the attractions that you might want to visit in the country.
A) The White House – This is the office of the President of the United States as well as his official residence. It is a building that has stood for more than 200 years since its construction and it has a breath taking view. In your list of the events and attractions to visit in the country, this should undoubtedly be one of them. However, due to terrorist threats this visit is requested six months in advance via an Ambassador or a Congressman.
B) Denali National Park – This is an attraction that is found in the state of Alaska where you will find North America’s highest mountain, Mount McKinley.
