In today's article, we'll head to sunny Arizona, nicknamed Grandy Canyon State. The grandiose Grand Canyon with the state winds for 450 kilometers.
Last week, we first peeked into the tourist-recommended Michigan town of Grand Rapids, also known as the City of Beer.
From cold Alaska, we head to the midwestern state of Michigan, where the city of Grand Rapids, the second largest in the state, awaits us. Historically, it was one of the centers of the furniture industry, home to five of the largest furniture companies in the world. No wonder Grand Rapids is nicknamed the "City of Furniture."
New York is a city that is on the travel list of many people. No wonder, it is full of historical monuments and dozens of interesting places. Do you want to visit New York and make a plan, what do you want to see? In that case, don't forget these 5 places.
Today we will follow up on a walk from last week, when we went to the capital of the largest American state.
There is no road to the Alaskan capital, Juneau. This is the only reason why it is a relatively non-traditional location. You can get here either by boat or by plane. It is located on a mainland promontory in the south of the state and is separated from the Pacific Ocean by a network of islands. Despite its remoteness, Juneau is a popular and attractive tourist destination with a large selection of interesting natural sites, which is clearly dominated by the Mendenhall Glacier (about 20 kilometers northwest of Juneau).
Today we will take you to wild Alaska, to its largest city Anchorage, which boasts a very poetic nickname - the City of Lights and Flowers.
In our journey through the United States, we may have never entered the state of Delaware. Although it is the second smallest state (after Rhode Island) with its six and a half thousand square kilometers, Delaware is of great importance for US history, as it was the first state to ratify the US Constitution. In 1831, the first steam locomotive in the USA left the local town of New Castle.
In the first part about Rockford, we visited the local gardens together, where the most interesting were probably the Japanese-style ones. At the beginning of today's work, we will first take you to the Rockford Art Museum.
Today's destination is the city of Rockford, which is appreciated for its charm. The Rock River flows through Rockford. On the right bank there is, for example, Riverfront Museum Park, which includes the Burpee Museum of Natural History, which we highly recommend. It was opened in 1942.
