Question for non-Americans: Do you have any desire to visit the U.S.?

This is just sort of a random question, but I was thinking about how most Americans would jump at the chance to visit other countries, especially the European ones and Australia. So I was just curious as to if people in other countries viewed the U.S. as a place they'd like to go someday or if they really have no desire to come here. It doesn't seem like there's anything too exciting here so it wouldn't really surprise me if no foreign tourists wanted to come. (At least tourists from a different continent- I'm sure Canadians or Mexicans might come over for a visit ocasionally.) So what's the verdict?

I definitely want to go to the States.
I've been to Hawaii twice but that doesn't really count hehe

There's nothing too exciting there?! Are u nuts? You guys have SO much around you. Do you realise it takes at least 2 days to drive from one major city to the next in Australia? You guys have such diversity in short distances, so many cities and places to visit.
I can't wait to see New York, San Fran, Louisiana, Chicago, The Grand Canyon....disneyworld lol
You have SO much in your backyards!
Im actually thinking my next trip will definitely be to the States. I just need the Australian dollar to quadruple first.

I second everything Amanda said! The USA has some of the most beautiful countryside imaginable. From rocky mountains, rugged coastlines, to rolling hills, canyons and deserts! It really is amazing.
I do only live in Canada and don't get to the States that much 'cause of the wicked dollar... but I'd like to eventually visit NewYork, Boston, Chicago and the New England area.

I have so far been to Seattle, (all over Washington State), SanFransisco, and Las Vegas (where I might actually be re-locating to for a few years... ) lol and the Grand Canyon (uneblievable!!!)

The only thing that the USA lacks (and I am not meaning to disrespect anyone here...) is an interesting history and uhm.... *coughs* culture, but hey! the same can be said for Canada.

Now people... let's not forget about Canada! lol We are just as puuurrrrrty.

May I also add.... that I'd love to visit four corners and check out the desert more. I LOVE the desert......

hey, I'll jump on the Canadian tourist board bandwagon. I've seen some amazing stuff up there. Not only do they have the best side of Niagra Falls , but they have the best half of the Rockies too! Simply jaw-dropping gorgeous.

Took these last year on a road-trip out west in which we headed north of the border into B.C. and Alberta. Kootenai and Banff are just

Hey, I don't think there's nothing interesting or exciting in the US! I've been to a majority of the 50 states and have seen a lot of interesting things. IMHO, it just seems less exciting than a European country, for example. But I guess the grass is always greener on the other side!

Nice pics, sula! I can jump on the Canadian tourism bandwagon too. I've been to Victoria, Montreal, and Niagara falls, and it was all lovely.

About the US: I would love to go again. Especially more down south, I have only been to Boston. I so want to see New York and Florida!

As to Canada:
I was to Niagra Falls last week!
It was awesome. and yes the American side is LAME!!!

I blew 20 bucks at caino niagra as well. Niagra is a cool town.

Newfoundland is where its at!! If you want to get a pice of ireland in canada go here!

This is Gros Morne NAtional park. If you ever come here go there!!


this is where the first vikings ever to be in canada lived:

I suppose I'D like to visit certain places in the states someday, but for now there are a lot of countiries I think I'd rather visit, probably like to see the rest of Europe before I do anything else. There are even places in Ireland I havent seen that I'd like to.
