Today we visit the idyllic southern city of Savannah, which boasts old villas, parks with fountains and tall trees. This relatively small town has a charming charm and a relaxed atmosphere. Savannah lies on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Savannah River, just on the border with South Carolina.
We continue to travel around the United States, today we look at the Arkansas city of Little Rock, which lies in the heart of this southern state. The city is located along the Arkansas River and was founded in 1820, shortly after the establishment of Arkansas territory. From the beginning, Little Rock has been the capital of the state, which, 200 years after its founding, has been a popular excursion destination for families, where a lot can be done.
Today we will continue to explore Beaumont, Texas. The second part starts unusually, in a kind of alligator zoo Gator Country Adventure Park, where more than 600 alligators live. One of the inhabitants is also Velký Al, which is about 90. The local community also includes Velký Tex, which has grown to a size of 4.5 meters in captivity and weighs almost half a ton.
After visiting Corpus Christi, we will drive to Beaumont in the northeast today. Beaumont's history is closely linked to oil production. The incident from 1901, when there was a huge explosion of an oil well, is still in memory. Today's Beaumont is surrounded by oil wells, but the city is strongly focused on protecting its natural resources, such as the Big Thicket National Preserve and the Cattail Marsh Wetland.
Corpus Christi is located in a bay north of Brownsville. The coastal city has become one of the most popular destinations in Texas in recent years, mainly due to its long beaches, rich flora and fauna. The area was inhabited in the first half of the 16th century, when the Spanish explorer Alonso Alvarez arrived and gave it a poetic name, which literally means the body of the Lord. Today, Corpus Christi is considered the Texas Riviera, as evidenced by the number of hotels and resorts that grew up like mushrooms after the rain.
In today's work on traveling around the United States, we look at Texas, specifically at its capital, Austin, with a population of approximately one million. Austin is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic cities in North America. No wonder. The climate, relatively low cost of living, high security by American standards and a strong economy attract many people here. They are based here and have offices from some of the world's most important companies such as 3M, Apple, Google, Amazon, IBM.
San Antonio is home to some of the most famous historic sites in the state of Texas, which makes the city a very attractive location. However, there is more than enough opportunity to experience here beyond history, especially around the city.
Today we will make a few trips from Phoenix to the surrounding area.
After exploring the city's museums last week, we take a look around Phoenix today.
Today, more than a million and a half people live in Phoenix. Due to the nearby Mexican border, the proportion of Latin Americans has increased here in recent decades, now accounting for approximately 40 percent of the city's population. Phoenix is also a major economic center. Several Fortune 500 companies are based here, and Luke Air Force Base is located in the western part of the city.
