I've been wanting to visit your nation for sometime now, but I don't know which state to visit, Im a student and I'm still quite young so it probably wont be for a good few years yet, although I hope to do it when I'm about 23 Anyway I'm looking for a state that matches up to these more or less....

I like the wilderness, camping, mountain climbing, swimming and generally just being outdoors I would like it to be warm and sunny because were I am from you dont get much sun lol

I wont be travelling alone my friends will be coming with me I would like to spend sometime in the USA, Do I need a visa, Im from the UK, I dont want to emigrate as I would miss my home lol but anyway if you have any suggestions thanks and if you need to know any more just ask

I think your best bet would be to visit California. There are several great cities to visit, good weather and beautiful scenery.

California.

New York (Hudson River Valley, Adirondacks, Catskills, NYC and Long Island) in late spring/early summer would also be an excellent choice.

I would recommend California first for several reasons. To begin with, you have the spectacular scenery of Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Second there is a hiking trail through these mountains called the Pacific Crest Trail. However I am not sure how hard this trail is or how experienced you and your friends are. I suggest you read up on it or ask around.

If hiking through the Sierra Nevada looks a little tough for beginners I would then recommend the Appalachian Trail in the Eastern US. This trail goes from Georgia to Maine (with Georgia being alot warmer than Maine lol). Down south you might want to check out Great Smoky National Park or other nearby areas, but I am not expert on the area.

Up north in the SUMMER, you can check out upstate New York, which is already pretty popular with some of your countrymen. New York has a good trail system in the US with the Appalachian Trail, Long Path, North Country Trail etc. Also, the Adirondack State Park is similar to your English National Parks in ownership. Lots of forests, lakes (over 3000) and mountains in a land area the size of Wales. I think you guys would like that!

The Southwest seems to have many sunny places and parts of it are mountainous.

I thought I heard Colorado had some fairly sunny places, but I don't know if it's particularly warm.

You could find these same qualities in the Pacific Northwest during the summer, since you'll be visiting and probably not for longer than 3 months. Summers in the Northwest are the best in the US. Sunny, warm, not humid at all, beautiful, and spectacular scenery. Great cities and the best recreation and wilderness in the country. Real mountains for climbing, rivers and lakes for swimming, forests for camping...

You won't need a visa, but just an ETA (electronic travel authority) if you are staying less than 3 months and not wishing to work. If you want to stay longer or work at all, it gets a lot more complicated and difficult.

Anywhere from San Diego along all the way up north to Seattle during summer time will surely put a dent to your heart. One word "Beautiful"

The Pacific Northwest is often referred to as God's Country.

Here's an example of why... Shots of Seattle.

Check out the pics...

California, or a combination of rural northern New England and New York City.
