Touted as the most powerful country in the world, America is brimming with metropolitan cities that offer all the glitz and glamour of modern world. Home to many stunning attractions, the states are rich in varied culture and history. We stop by at four cities that we enjoy.
San Francisco just keeps on evolving and getting ever more interesting for tourists. A visit to Golden Gate Bridge is a must to marvel over the construction before continuing to Fisherman’s Wharf. If you’re feeling peckish, a treat at Boudin Bakery will satisfy your stomach. Known for its delicious clam chowder, this is a very popular spot. For dinner, head to Chinatown and queue up to dine at Hang Ah Dim Sum House. While there are many good hotels around, a stay at the world-renowned Fairmont San Francisco will offer you the best view of the city. Sitting atop the famous Nob Hill, the hotel offers panoramic views of Alcatraz and the Financial District.
Famously known as the city of angels, LA is a vibrant city that is rich in culture. Without doubt, the most alluring thing about LA is the chance of meeting a famous TV icon, but there is more. For example, Griffith Observatory has been a city landmark since 1935 and is a great place for a clear view of the Hollywood sign, while Hollywood Boulevard is where all the action starts. Finding a good place to eat in LA is super easy. Koreatown has some of the best Korean restaurants in California and Kang Ho-Dong Baekjong is one of them. For a good taco, Mercado in Santa Monica has been a favourite long before the hipsters arrived, while Nobu is frequently visited by the Kardashian/Jenner clan for Japanese food.
It is easy to be in awe at everything in Las Vegas. The biggest entertainment, biggest hotels and biggest offerings when it comes to dining. For everyone who loves the finer things in life the choices of luxury hotels are endless and include The Bellagio, Aria, MGM Grand and Caesars Palace. While the city is famous for its casinos, cruising The Strip is almost as much fun and doesn’t break the bank. Even big-name chefs in the world have their own restaurants in this area, such as Joël Robuchon and Restaurant by Guy Savoy.
New York has it all! From iconic landmarks to trendy people and good restaurants. Art connoisseurs are in for a treat as the city is home to The Met, MOMA and the Guggenheim. For a real introduction to the city, a walk-through Times Square is a must before heading to Central Park. Being the food capital of America, New York offers 75 Michelin-starred restaurants and more great food vendors. Momofuku is native to the area, while Le Bernardin has constantly received great accolades since 1986.
