Activity 3: Three Tourist Attractions

INTRODUCTION:

The United States has a long history of important events. But those aren’t the only things that it has. There are many wondrous sights and places to see when you visit this “star spangled” country. So grab your backpack and get ready for some extraordinary places to visit when in the United States.

 

1: SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION

Located in Washington DC, This chain of museums was established in 1846. It is termed “The Nation’s Attic”  for holding over 138 million items. It has nineteen museums and nine research centers that hold historical documents, machines, fossils, architecture, animal taxidermy, and other things.

2: THE GATEWAY ARCH

This huge architecture stands 360 ft, and is clad in stainless steel. Its construction started in 1963, and first opened in 1965. This catenary arch was made, and still stands in St. Louis, MO. Its dizzying views from above can give you a different perspective of the ground below.

3: THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait. Located in San Franscisco, CA, it’s a 1 mile wide, 3 mile long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific.

 

OK. These are my three tourist attractions list. I know I didn’t add the Grand Canyon, the White House, etc. But if you think up of a place in the U.S. that’s a great place to visit, then feel free to comment and tell me the different places you think should’ve been on this post.
