USA travel information
One of the world's largest countries, the USA has enormous geographic and climatic diversity, with a corresponding breadth of flora and fauna. Its great rivers, mountains, deserts, forests and woodland offer plenty of opportunities for every imaginable outdoor activity, while the artistic and architectural heritage of the great cities present themselves as man-made wonders of the modern world. Less well known, and still relatively hidden from the casual observer, is the diversity of American Indian peoples.
Some tribes, such as the Pueblo Indians of the southwest, have welcomed visitors for decades; their rich decorative arts famous worldwide, but only recently have other tribes begun to explore the possibilities offered by tourism. Casinos and hotels from east to west have provided much-needed income for many tribes and reservations in recent decades, but innovative and imaginative Tribal Councils are now encouraging guests to learn more of Indian history, traditions and lifeways, and inviting visitors to explore with them the abundant American landscapes and wildlife.
