The Statue of Liberty

It is one of new York’s most famous landmarks and has become a symbol of the United States. Its real name is very little known “Freedom illuminating the World” and since 1984 UNESCO declared it a World Heritage site for its historical value. It represents freedom and the struggle for emancipation against oppression, a message that it transmitted to European immigrants because this was the first vision they had when they arrived.

 

Mount Rushmore

Commonly known as Mount Rushmore National Memorial is one of the most iconic sites in the United States.
Its singularity lies in that it is a monumental sculptural ensemble of 18 meters high and 5.17 km ² of extension.
It represents the birth, growth, conservation and development of the American nation.
Its construction lasted 14 years and the end result was the reflection on a granite mountain of the faces of
American Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
Another curious data of the work is that his sculptors were father and son, Gutzon Borglum and Lincoln Borglum.

Trains

Amtrak is the national company that connects most of the United States territory. At the general level the rail service is good and most of the stations are in the center of the cities. The trains are equipped with car beds, panoramic cars, snack bar, restaurant, an entertainment car and for tourists are offered valid passes for more than a month.

However, the airlines offer a strong competition in terms of duration and cost of travel so especially in the long journeys, trains are used less frequently as a form of transportation. On the other hand, there are historical tours with steam or narrow-gauge machines, among which are the circuits of Mount Hood Railroad in Oregon and the Durango-Silverton in Colorado.

Bus

The buses that connect most of the North American cities are air-conditioned, with relatively comfortable seating, and in case of long-distance trips, they make stops to eat and rest every four hours. The bus service is slightly cheaper than the plane, but also much slower.
