Some people don't like cities and probably wouldn't enjoy NYC, but would enjoy the vast beautiful rural areas and National Parks and vice versa.

Geographically America is stunning, and I don't think anyone can argue with that.
Excellent post
I've worked with people from different countries in South Florida and explained to them that this area is nothing like the rest of the country.

It's an intriguing question, let it be. And from a moderator?

Frequently travelers say they didn't like xxxx country, why can't it be the US?

Besides, Lord knows as an American, I've visited parts of this country that were/are just awful, and on a global scale.

USA.

A great place to visit. Probably one of the best. However, not a good place.

I don't see how someone can hate a whole country.

There's going to be a total solar eclipse across the U.S. on Aug. 21.

People might like to see that.

I have friends from the UK, Germany, and Italy visit the US as often as they can when they have the rest of Europe at their doorstop. I love living here in the the US, don't get me wrong, but don't understand the appeal from Europeans. Most of them love our national parks, variation of food, friendliness, huge roads/SUVS/hotel rooms, natural beauty, and especially New York City. My British friends can't shut UP about it LOL. NYC is awesome but I wouldn't want to spend all that vacation time and money on a yearly trip there.

Also from what I'm told our beaches completely blow Europe's out of the water. This much has been said by both tourists and EU friends who describe them as small, overcrowded, and often "rocky". I'm told that our shopping malls are also far more superior. I saw this first hand in Paris. Apparently jeans are popular here. When some of them visit the first thing they do is grab some honest to God Mexican food. I know that not everyone will have the best of times here but I sure hope so.

As an adult I love travelling in the US. Though the low Canadian dollar will keep me away this summer. It is not about Trump. I don't care about that.
My experience as a child were the opposite. Our trips were to Southern California where my grandparents and uncle lived were wonderful.

Usually by plane, once by train. Exciting for a kid in the 1960's.

Southern California back then seemed magical to me then. They still had orange groves in LA. Palm trees were fascinating to me, Disneyland, Knox Berry Farm, and burger places we didn't have back home like Jack in the Box.

Our grandparents spoiled us. We would go for rides before sunset in grandpa's big convertible Cadillac down Sunstet Blvd and the spots past movie and TV studios where some of my favourite shows were shot.

Ya, fond memories.

As an adult, I still enjoyed many trips to the states, but with adult eyes a lot of the glitter was lost.

All fairly large countries have this same problem. People visit Toronto and think that is all of Canada.
People visit Paris, and think that is what France has to offer.
