USA

Country Facts

One of the most influential and powerful countries on earth, the United States of America is as much about hedonism as it is about finding yourself. The fast-paced, hip streets of New York, the astounding magnificence of the Grand Canyon, the sun-kissed boulevards of LA, the swinging streets of San Francisco, the biting beauty of Alaska, America is all about people, cultures, influences and energy coming together in a blaze of defiance. To get under America’s skin read Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’, watch ‘The Godfather’ trilogy, and listen as James Brown sings ‘I Feel Good’.
