Our tourist destination today is the city of Riverside, which lies approximately a hundred kilometers east of the megalopolis of Los Angeles. In comparison, it looks like a small suburb with its 300,000 inhabitants. However, if you want to try something other than a traditional overcrowded tourist destination, it is a great cruise destination.
Today you will set out on a trip to the bowels of a steamer. Well, not quite, we go to the Arabia Steamboat Museum. On September 5, 1856, a steamer sank in the Missouri River, just 10 miles from Kansas City, carrying approximately 200 tons of supplies for stores in the American Midwest. The Arabia ship had been forgotten for over 130 years, until it was accidentally discovered by an amateur archaeologist in a cornfield, because the river had changed due to erosion.
The State of Missouri, nicknamed the Mother of the West, is home to the Ozar Mountains, culturally rich cities - Kansas City or St. Petersburg. Louis and places deeply associated with American history. In the coming weeks, we'll walk you through the most interesting places in this state.
In the previous article, we looked at museums in the popular Sundance Square and we will continue to do so today.
In the center of this relatively little known Texas city you should not miss the Water Gardens from the 70s of last century. These are some beautiful fountains, which is simply a pleasure to see. On hot summer days, you can refresh yourself in them.
The city lies just 50 kilometers west of the famous Dallas (in the Czech Republic mainly because of the famous soap opera hit of the 1990s), which may, perhaps somewhat unjustly, overshadows it.
The fascinating visit to the Johnson Space Center is hard to be matched. Let's take another look at the city.
Today we continue in our tour of American cities. From Orlando, Florida, which we visited last time, we headed far west, all the way to Houston, Texas, which is said to be the best culinary scene in the US. But that's not the only thing you can look forward to.
The Florida city of Orlando is clearly one of the world's most visited destinations. Tens of millions of people come here every year. The most interesting in this city are local amusement parks. We have already taken you to some of them - Islands of Adventure, Walt Disney World or Universal Studios Orlando.
In the last episode on the capital city of Ohio - Columbus - we took you to the Rose Park, walked along the Scioto Mile and visited the heart of the local art scene.
