Traveling to the US for the first time? 4 Things You Must Try there

 The US is one of the most widely known countries in the whole world. The great influence that it has exerted on the planet even before its discovery by European colonizers makes it a place that everyone wants to visit at least once in their lifetime. 

It is important to clarify that it is mostly its cultural domination that makes it such an interesting place to visit. In the cultural sphere we include literature, movies, music, fashion, a can-do attitude and a trendy lifestyle. It is not accidental that most trends start there. 

Although the country receives millions of visitors all the time, it is hard and expensive for travelers from continents other than North America to go there. However, it is worth the trouble. So, if you are actually going there any time soon, you will find below 5 things that you should absolutely do in order to enjoy the full American experience. 

  1. Visit New York

Many people think that New York is the capital of the US. This is false; Washington, D.C. is the capital of the country. Why is there this misconception? Because everyone keeps raving about New York. The urban beauty of the city, the emphasis on fashion, the plethora of cultural events going on every day and the united communities of people from all around the world make it a place that impresses everyone. It goes without saying that you must go to the most iconic attractions, which are the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Empire State Building and Times Square.

  1. Go on a road trip

We have to make it clear that the United States is a huge country. You shouldn’t even think of exploring the whole country. What you can do is hire a car and get to know a chunk of it. You should look for the car that accommodates your traveling needs perfectly on Enjoy Travel. When you find the one, book it online immediately because you are guaranteed that that is the best price on the market. Many Americans go on road trips with their friends and families because it is a great chance for them to admire their own country without spending too much money. 

  1. Attend a sports event

Sports is a big industry in the United States. Besides the games themselves, organizers do everything in their power to make sure that they offer the best entertainment they can to everyone watching either in a stadium or at home. American football, baseball, basketball and rugby are the sports that are worth devoting time to while you are on vacation in the US. 

  1.   Visit L.A. 

Los Angeles is one more city in the United States that everyone knows. The fact that major movie production companies have their headquarters there has led many aspiring artists to move there in the hope that they will make it big in Hollywood or become internet famous.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
