The United States has been the most important country in the world for many decades. However, it remains a great unknown to many. Located in North America, this 50-state constitutional federal republic is founded on cities and the urban landscape. In fact, most citizens live in cities. Logically, being such a large country, each of them has customs, making the United States of America a multicultural territory.
As of 2007, the United States had 207 cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants. We can’t show you all of them, but we do want to tell you about some of the most important in the country. Of course, we warn you that we have left some cities in the pipeline, so we encourage you to propose your own list. Would you like to join us?
How could it be otherwise, let’s start by talking about New York City, which, located in the state of the same name, is one of the most impressive urban agglomerations in the world. In fact, many consider it the cultural and economic capital of the planet.
Of course, we also have to talk about Washington DC, which despite not being among the most populous cities in the United States, plays a fundamental role. And we are talking about the capital of the country. With a rich historical and cultural heritage, the city hosts the White House, the Pentagon and the Capitol, among other important buildings.
We continue our tour of the most important cities in the United States in Los Angeles, considered the most populous city in California. Undoubtedly, it is one of the world’s cultural, economic and scientific centers, as well as hosting the mecca of cinema: Hollywood .
Another city that could not be missing from our list is Chicago, the third in the United States in number of inhabitants. Known as the City of the Wind, it is one of the main industrial and cultural centers of the country, housing an important port, an extensive network of roads and railways, important universities, museums and libraries.
Nor could Las Vegas be missing from the list, which is not one of the most populated, although it is one of the most visited. The "city that never sleeps" is home to numerous casinos , as well as plenty of shopping and entertainment areas.
Located in the state of California, the city of San Francisco is one of the most picturesque in the United States. Center of culture and the social avant-garde of the country, the city is known for its steep streets flanked by Victorian-style houses. On the other hand, it is important to bear in mind that it is home to different islands on its shores.
Another city we want to talk about is Houston, the fourth city in the country in number of inhabitants. Located in Texas , it is one of the great cultural centers of the country.
Another city that could not be missing from the list is Miami which, surprisingly, is considered the "cleanest city in the country". In addition, it is the door to the Caribbean and Latin America. It is important to differentiate it from Miami Beach. While the first is inland, the second reaches the seashore.
Of course, we also have to talk about Phoenix, which, located in the south of the state of Arizona and surrounded by mountain peaks, has experienced spectacular growth in recent decades, becoming the seventh most populous city in the country.
Finally, knowing that we are leaving important cities in the pipeline, we are going to talk about San Diego, considered by many as the best place to live in the United States. And it is that, located in California, this city offers a great climate and fantastic beaches.
