Visiting the USA is a dream of most people, but one thing is constant here and that is the change. The pioneer spirit of this country appears in this evolving nature and bold outlook that is widespread to all the land corners. This is also apparent in the Hollywood to gleaming skyscrapers.
The places of visit in the USA cannot be covered in one visit. One must be prepared for frequent visits. The national parks are found across each state and they feature their own superlatives. America celebrates wonderful festivals for everything. The state fairs also are different that offers an opportunity to taste deep-fried eatables such as bubblegum, pig ears, Twinkies and lots more.
The food is also a dominating factor here ensuring large culinary tracts. You can find anything in Supersize. Of course, to beat the heavy eating, the U.S is the country that has people exercising the most. However, the west and east coasts receives a lot of tourists attention, but the fact is that the rolling interiors of the U.S also has extensive expanses of farmlands that are beautiful, worth watching.
Traveling in a car in America seems to be quintessential. The car culture is always alive here and even today this is the dominant transport force. Driving through highways, leaving roads behind and chasing air offers great pleasure. But, when it comes to face the reality of traffic and parking spaces in USA, there is a dead silence.
Cities in America downtowns are popular for their hotels and budget accommodations, but they are also hollowed due to the planning events. These have become blank spots that are stifling the urban life. Yes, this refers to the surface parking lots. The huge areas covered by surface parking have resulted in creating a hostile atmosphere to the pedestrians that it is very hot in summers, appears dull and menacing to women returning alone after dark to their cars.
There are cities such as Massachusetts, Cambridge and Washington D.C having made headway in altering the huge expanse of parking lots and this has compelled people to go to downtowns. The truth cannot be denied that the issue is with lack of proper planning. If they follow rigorous planning, the cities can undergo restoration so that the streets are focused for people to walk and there is space for car parking.
Tourists or locals also who wish to go out in their vehicles must plan on holidays when there is more free space on the roads to drive fast. Generally the 9 am to 5pm are the office weekdays and naturally 90 minutes before and after the office hours there is lot of traffic. People, who are not office-goers, can skip this time, if there is no emergency.
Parking is handled taking into the fact that it should be available whenever necessary and today there are lots of parking spots in the U.S. However, the truth is ironic that finding a suitable parking spot is the biggest pain in this city. The reason with parking spaces is that people do not know where and how many parking spaces are available.
