Historic Williamsburg, Virginia
Every state has its own unique culture and it would be a shame to not experience the South. I've lived here for over a decade now, and while I don't feel like I've become a bonafide Southerner, I do feel comfortable and welcome here.
Chimney Rock, North Carolina
America is a land where anything is possible. The glass is always half full! After all, we were founded by a bunch of rebels and we've ended up in pretty decent shape!
You'll see plenty of American flags here. Especially since the events of September 11, 2001, the spirit of patriotism is alive and well.
Before all major sporting events (even high school games) the national anthem is played. People will remove their hats and show respect by observing the flag and staying quiet while the anthem is being performed. This shot was taken on November 9, 2003 in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Carolina Panthers-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game.
While American grade school students don't always score as high as some nations' students, no country has a better university system with as many highly ranked universities. Thousands of international students come to this country to study and build a better future. This is a picture of the most prestigious university in the USA, Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Americans love to play. Most cities will have parks or waterfronts where you can ride bikes or rollerblade or go for a stroll.
