Seeing as you have only a month. I think I'd opt for a flight into NYC, museum your heart out. Train down to D.C for more museums and major landmarks. Then either catch a flight or bus up to Boston a fantastic city in the summer and heart of US history, from there maybe rent a car and make a loop heading north to Connecticut Rhode Island and Maine. All great history and beautiful landscapes. Then back down to NYC for your flight home. Its the most compact region that will give you a real flavor of the US. Its not as dramatic as the west, but it will give a broader view of Americana.

This country is considerably more diverse than the Baltic, and unless you tell us what your interests are, it's somewhat pointless for us to make suggestions. If you're the outdoor type, I doubt that you'd be interested in Broadway shows.

To:Daawgon :)
Haha..i am avare of the fact that U.S much larger than Baltic States:).
For your question about what i´am intrested in i would say that i like outdoor activity ( camping,hiking,waters sports etc) and nature but i would love to go to Broadway as well.Though i know i can´t have it all at the same time.
First i thought i would like to visit NY for a week or so, then Washington DC and then Pensacola ( or Miami),FL.

We have a great offer here for airline tickets to U.S ( 460$ for a round trip to U.S and you can pick 3 citys to visit. for example: Tallinn- NYC- DC-Miami-Tallinn ).

Thank you all for your comments.

If that's the case, then having lived all over, I would say New York, Colorado for your outdoor activities, then finish up in San Francisco.

For me it would be New York City, Vegas and Orlando because there is just so much to do day or night

Only problem with Orlando and Las Vegas is they are all FAKE!

Thats a bit of a narrow minded view of two really great places. Not only the excitement of the citys, but very close at hand in Vegas you have Hoover dam, lake Mead and some amazing national parks. Orlando is a short ride to the coast, and Daytona, and historic St Augustine, or again amazing state parks and natural springs.

Orlando is known for its theme parks and not much else,if i were to sugest Florida i'd recommend Miami's South Beach and then the drive out to Key West.
I'd also recommend Washington DC for the Smithsonian Museums and the Capital buildings.
NYC because its Americas Heart,
or if you have the time and a car just drive

I did florida, new york and alabama, also seen atlanta and washington. for me florida is disappointing a part from key west which was really good. new york city is a must to see spot on earth. and now I am planning my nex trip to california and nevada.

So better stick with new york spend as much time as you can. dont miss central park moma and times.

The top 3 must visit states in US are California, New York and Washington DC. The must visit places are as follows:

California for its beaches, food and 'full of life' atmosphere

New York for its business culture, Time Square, Statue of Liberty, Madam Tussuad Wax Museum and The Empire State Building

Washington DC for its White House, International Spy Museum, Georgetown and Smithsonian Institution

Fun question. You've really got me thinking about my favorite spots and things I'd love to see.
Here's how I'd do it ...

Northern California: San Francisco with short trips to Monterey, Yosemite National Park or North Shore Lake Tahoe, and the Napa or Sonoma Valley wine country. Great international city, great food, great culture, and great nature.

Southwest Colorado: Telluride, Durango, Ouray. Spectacular Rocky Mountain High cowboy and ski country.

New Orleans: A great and unique American city with fantastic food, culture, and night life (so I've heard).

Bonus?: New York City ... maybe you'll fly into NYC on your way to other places anyway.

The good: Three (or four) different slices of America
The bad: Could be pretty expensive to travel to all of the different areas.

Note: I grew up in Colorado and lived in San Francisco. I am biased but I stand behind my recommendations 100%.

If I were to choose among these states, I would pick New York, Nevada and California. These three states are well known tourism boosters ever since. If you are into beaches, springs and more of outdoor engagements well California is the best for you. In Nevada, you can witness some gambling, pubs and parties in the city but there are also a lot of landscapes in far from the city itself and in NY, you would see various mountain regions and museums for both relaxation and educational purposes that will also help kids if you tag them along with you.

I hope to hear from your vacation. Post some pics for us!

Have a nice vacation!
