America is big. Very big. It's big even before you account for its snowy Alaskan and tropical Hawaiian outposts. The sunny surf beaches along California give way to dusty deserts, snow-capped peaks and endless forests that reach across to the gritty East Coast cities of New York and Boston. There are distinctly American adventures to be had in all four corners of this vast land.
There is nowhere on earth where Mother Nature can be seen at its most dramatic than the Grand Canyon. The cavernous behemoth, which stretches 18 miles across and over a mile deep, is impressive to say the least. Don't just gawp at its beauty though. Circle overhead by helicopter, paddle along the Colorado River or pretend you're John Wayne while you gallop along the rim on horseback.
