California is America’s most populous state. It’s also one of the states with the most to offer in terms of things to do and sights to see.

If you’re into movies, make sure to swing by Hollywood in Los Angeles. Take a trip north to San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge and take a tour of Alcatraz Island.

If outdoor pursuits are your thing, Yosemite National Park is not to be missed.


Montana is much quieter than California. However, it’s not short on things for tourists to do during visits.

One of the richest states in the west in terms of natural splendor, Montana boasts a number of national parks.

One of Montana’s best cities for outdoor pursuits and sightseeing is Kalispell. Consult this list for a detailed look at what to do in Kalispell.


Nevada is situated largely in the desert. However, that doesn’t mean there’s any lack of things to keep visitors entertained.

As a state with very liberal gambling laws, Nevada is world-famous for its casinos. If you’re going to Nevada, your trip won’t be complete unless you pay a visit to the most famous casino city in the world; Las Vegas.

Go to see a show at the MGM Grand, or stand outside the Bellagio as its fountains shoot into the night sky. No matter what time of the day or night it is, you’ll always have something to do and see in Las Vegas, whether you’re a gambler or not.

If big city life isn’t your thing, take a trip to Lake Tahoe. Here you can rent a boat to go out on the lake, or else just sit by the water and relax.


When it comes to natural beauty, you’ll find it hard to stumble across a better state than Oregon. Directly north of California, it has some of the best natural attractions in the country.

Crater Lake sits in a volcanic crater, framed by mountains and cliffs. It is perhaps the state’s most breathtaking natural feature.

You can also pay a visit to Mount Hood or Smith Rock State Park.
