day by day itinerary for free
With its vast set of staggeringly different landscapes and cultures, tourism in the Western US can be anything you want it to be. Split between the Pacific States and Mountain States, the ample masses of land to explore include the rainforests of the Northwest, the Great Plains, the Southwestern deserts, and the nation's highest mountain ranges. Head to major urban centers for cultural attractions and a range of family-friendly activities. Culturally, ideals of independence and self-reliance have been associated with the West by movie makers and authors--perhaps best epitomized in the cultural touchstone of American mythos and entertainment, the cowboy. You're also bound to encounter a strong presence of indigenous peoples on your Western US tour, as well as influences from Latino and Asian cultures. Plan how to spend your time in Western US and other destinations in United States using our United States trip planner.
