The USA being a vast country and with so many sights to see and activities to do, it is difficult to choose the best places to visit in a single trip. Still, we tried to narrow down the lists in terms of must-see places.

(Note: Please note that the itineraries mentioned here are focused on the routes or directions to follow for saving time and money and still not missing the ‘must-see’ destinations. The days mentioned here in-between the places is a rough estimation just to give you general itinerary ideas. You can shorten or lengthen this time according to your interests, season, budget and time available. For example, sometimes you might want to experience the nature, activities, and culture in a relaxed manner without any haste and without feeling cramped.)
