Just to be clear: while we’re fully aware that the American continent itself is comprised of numerous nations, we’re focusing on cities specifically in the United states. As other American nations are home to dozens of other cities that deserve their own separate lists, we’re ranking these cities based on how beautiful they are, how fun they are and how much they have to offer tourists. Number 10: Honolulu Hawaii Hawaiian for “calm port”, It’s not difficult to see how this state capital received its name. While the city houses many run-of-the-mill modern views from the high-rises of Waikiki Beach to the consumer outlets of what’s touted as the world’s largest open-air shopping center, it continues to remain a must visit paradise for its natural landscapes and native habitats. This Modern Eden is the perfect destination for tourists seeking an exotic escape near the borders of the contemporary world. number 9: Washington D.C. It’s not just politics as usual in the United States Capital, There are tons of things to see and do. Visitors can enjoy the City’s inspiring and diverse architecture with both modern buildings and historic structures that range in style from Georgian revival and Beaux Arts to Romanesque and much more. Home to numerous national landmarks including the Lincoln Memorial, the National Mall, Capitol Hill and of course the White House, it should come as no surprise that tourism is the second most profitable industry in the district of Columbia. number 8: Miami, Florida Ranked not only as one of America’s cleanest cities but also one of the richest, this child of the sunshine state is filled with views of cityscapes and coastline, making it one of the crown jewels of America’s southeast. Another reason to visit Miami is for its reputation as the supposed capital of Latin America. The City earned that nickname for its large Spanish-speaking and cuban American populations. As a destination for a perfect summer Getaway the City has garnered further prominence for its broad beaches, clean water and the port of Miami, currently dubbed the Cruise capital of the World. number 7: Boston, Massachusetts Located on the coast of one of America’s four Commonwealth States Massachusetts’ capital is a city rich in history, culture and business.

Today the capital continues to thrive with its proud achievements in medicine and higher education, the buildings and sites of which have garnered their own special breed of tourism. Number six, Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s gone by many other names from epithets including Glitter Gulch and the entertainment capital of the world but most famously Vegas is known as “Sin City”.

While it has recently begun drawing in more families and retirees Vegas and its collection of worlds within a single neon realm remains a prominent tourist destination for its novelty architecture, nightlife, gaming grounds and live entertainment, adult or not. Number 5: Los Angeles, California Known as “the city of angels” this colorful metropolis is home to a broad diversity of peoples and subcultures that make LA a world of its own.

Anarchic Avenues Aside Magazine Street just one of many other decorative and eccentric corners of the City is home to boutique shops and Antique stores with goodies that you’ll swear are from another world. Number 3: Chicago, Illinois Taking the third spot on our list is America’s third most populated city with an ever-growing Metropolitan area often referred to as Chicagoland, the Windy City’s history and Modern day evolution continues to attract more outsiders for tourists mainstays like cuisine sightseeing and sports, as it’s one of the few American cities to have professional athletic teams in all major sports leagues.

As a center of culture and Commerce in Northern California this must visit city acts as central headquarters for dozens of contemporary enterprises including Gap and Twitter to name a few. Prominent for its wide array of architectural styles and areas like the famous Hippie District Haight-Ashbury.

  5. WOW!! TALK ABOUT PREJUDICE NOT TO TALK ABOUT ANY CITY IN AMERICA OUTSIDE THE U.S. LIKE BEAUTIFUL BUENOS AIRES, SAN JUAN, HAVANA, MEXICO CITY, RIO DE JANEIRO, MENDOZA… YOU MUST ALSO BELIEVE THAT THE "WORLD SERIES" IS A WORLDWIDE EVENT, HEY MOJO??

  6. If you believe that "America" is one country, how can "North America" (the north part of "America" )and "South America" (the South part of "America") be two separate continents?? EITHER NORTH AMERICA IS THE NORTH PART OF A CONTINENT OR THE NORTH PART OF A COUNTRY. Which is it? I leave it up to you to choose, just make up your mind without contradictons. I also suggest you show me a map (google or whatever) where the U.S. is called "America" If you feel sad because the country between Mexico and Canada does not have a name, I'll help you find one: "Turkeyland" "Pilgrimmia" "Mayflowerland" "Trumpland" or a little more seriously: COLUMBIA. Heads up, kid!

  7. Go to America as a tourist ? Are you nuts? They have no history, they have no manners, they have no culture.  It is truly a very strange country where the people choose an insane president, walk around with weapons in their pockets, and think there are all sorts of other reasons why people shoot each other. Their morals are double and triple, almost morbid. I recommend Russia.

  8. Your country is beautiful! I love your country so much, can you help me get a visa? I'm a civil engineer diploma

  12. "Epi-THET, not TET." Jeez!
    Also, they mention Magazine St. but not the Garden District in New Orleans? Absurd! The Garden District is like a larger version of Savannah/Charleston, but even prettier! And Magazine Street is within its confines. Mojo don't know.

  13. Also, why Vegas as a must-see?! Unless you're into cheesy Vegas shows or gambling, what is there? Just empty glitz. Pshaw! You could have included Charleston, SC, or a beautiful western city in its stead!

  14. Memphis ? where is Philadelphia ? the only city in america to be listed as a world heritage sight —parts of it are like walking through the 18th century

  15. San Francisco: If you like the smell of human shit in the morning, the sight of street people having an obvious mental breakdowns and stepping on used drug needles, this is the city for you.

  21. Where the hell is philadelphia? Should be within the top 5 and easily over Boston. Birthplace and original capital of the United states. This is coming from a fellow Bostonian. Decent list though..

  22. A very amusing video, thanks. Guys, please do not forget to visit Liberty State Park in New Jersey! Check this out!

  23. I pray God if I can ever have an opportunity to see American soil by my eyes that's my American dream and it's the country I love from the deepest part of my heart

  24. You should mention as a Washington DC attraction the wax museum. I haven't heard much about it since I visited DC when I was almost 9 which I personally think makes it underrated it's definitely worth checking out. I was very moved by the John F Kennedy assassination exhibit & I was just a baby when it happened. And the biblical wax museum. Of course we're talking between 45 & 50 years ago so things can seriously deteriorate to quite unimpressive in that amount of time so I guess I'm recommending in the assumption it hasn't changed much in half a century & I doubt that.

  25. I've been to Las Vegas, San fransisco, Washington DC I saw the Washington Monument the Lincoln Memorial in the pool I've been to Atlanta Georgia I've been to Maine Florida and Key West Marathon Island Miami Los Angeles, lived in new York city. Bronx, Coney Island Brooklyn Harlem Staten Island New Jersey Connecticut Danbury Connecticut Stamford Connecticut Waterbury Mount Rushmore North and South Dakota I've been to Duluth Detroit Michigan Chicago
