Oh yeah it's in a desert or something like that.

You don't like direct sunlight much do you? Are you afraid of possibly getting a sunburn.

The weather varies depending on time of year and which area you visit.

Northern Ontario

I love travelling. I'd love to see most of the US. I rank it high on my list of places to visit. I've been to quite a few states, but would like to see them all. We're heading across country to Alaska and then down through BC, then Washington, then doing the Oregon coast this summer... can't wait!

I love visiting the Caribbean, been to Europe a few times, and would like to travel where ever else I can go before I can't travel.

I don't really get sunburns, I just get tanned lol.

It's just that I feel like I'd get lost and die in the Grand Canyon lol.

It's not the Sahara or Sonoran. Elevation plays a role as you pass through 6 climate zones. Trust me, I can't stand heat either and dislike the desert myself but the Grand Canyon looks far worse than it is.

I am a bit reckless, but I've done that exact same thing in a car before

Interesting, because as an American those are what I would consider the least appealing parts of the US.

1. First tell us where you're from :
south america

2. Next state what you think of the US as a tourist destination compared to other countries you'd consider :
it is a interesting place to see, though its overexposure in the media, and its massive influence everywhere might actually make it less interesting than other less advertised, less known, less promoted, less globalized countries.

3. If possible state what you'd like to do, eat, see, etc. :
NYC, Miami, New Orleans, San Francisco as far as cities.... the rest don't draw me as much

Visit a few national parks here and there
