I still keep a handwritten note from when I was thirteen, detailing the “100 things to do before you die” as featured on a Discovery Channel programme I’d seen. The number one thing to do was “See the Grand Canyon”. I remember thinking, it makes sense for one of the seven natural wonders of the world to be honoured with the top spot. And also thinking how I would probably never get to that one, but I could start ticking off the ones closer to home.
The thought of having been as lucky as I was to see the Grand Canyon on my short trip to the US still blows my mind, and it almost feels as a bit of a dream. See for yourself…
“Fabulous” is a pretty solid understatement when it comes to describing Las Vegas. The sheer scale of attractions and entertainment is out of this world, a little fun-tastic universe, all contained in a not-very-long strip in the heart of a desert. And it can offer just as brilliant an experience for non-gamblers, if not more!
Welcome to Part 2 of my USA Trip series! This week I’d like to bring you a guide to the best spots in San Francisco. I managed to cover all of these in less than a day, so if you find yourself in this amazing city for longer than that, you would have no excuse if you miss any of the below!
