Flights from the United States

There is little left unsaid about the United States of America (USA). Its inspiring metropolises are immortalized in photographs and its movies are beloved around the world. However, did you know that it’s also home to the world’s biggest ball of twine? The bizarre structure can be found in Cawker City, Kansas. How about the Styrofoam copy of the Stonehenge in Virginia that looks like the real thing? The US always has something new to humour visitors and keep them interested. If you think you’ve seen it all in the US, check to make sure you haven’t missed the following:  

New York

Apart from the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and Central Park, there is a place in Brooklyn, New York called the Dead Horse Bay. This used to be a site where carcasses were made into glue and other products, but today, it is a wasteland where many old, miscellaneous items wash up onto shore. As such, artists and craftsmen often frequent to area to collect decorative materials, so you have a good chance of picking up something fascinating. For some art that’s more upscale, visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which includes the Islamic Arts Gallery, displaying many artefacts of Islamic significance.

In Michigan, commonly visited attractions include the Henry Ford museum, Mackinac Bridge and Michigan State Capitol.

Home of SeaWorld San Antonio and Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Texas is the place to be for thrilling roller coaster rides. If one prefers something more relaxing, the San Antonio River Walk and Zilker Park make for ideal locations for strolls and other recreational activities.
