It’s easy to be spoilt for choice when you visit America. After all, the country accommodates a whole range of holiday-makers – from those looking to climb mountains to those eager to lounge on the beach. There’s also the option to lay your eyes on some of the nation’s most iconic buildings. If you’re accepted for an ESTA visa and decide to go down this route, here are four buildings you won’t want to miss if you’re staying close by.
The Empire State Building
The Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world when it opened in New York in 1931. Located in Manhattan, it boasts 102 floors and reaches 381m into the sky. The skyscraper is regularly featured in films and welcomes thousands of visitors to its observation deck every day.
The White House
The White House is the residence of the president of the United States. Once home to the likes of Abraham Lincoln, JFK and Franklin D. Roosevelt, the immaculate building is currently occupied by Donald Trump. It’s located on Pennsylvania Avenue in the District of Columbia and there are regular tours for people who fancy a peep inside its historic walls.
Bellagio Hotel and Casino
The Las Vegas Strip is known all over the world. While there are many extravagant buildings to feast your eyes upon there, the crème de la crème is the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. Located on Las Vegas Boulevard, it’s the symbol of elegance and a millionaire hot spot. The hotel is open to the public should they wish to visit the casino. However, many are happy just to watch the fountain display directly outside the premises.
Sears Tower (now known as Willis Tower)
The Sears Tower (now known as Willis Tower) is a 110-story skyscraper located on South Wacker Drive in Chicago. Standing taller than the Empire State Building, it is the highlight of an incredible built-up skyline in Chicago. If you can make it to the top, you’ll surely be pleased with the views that are less familiar but just as amazing as the ones in New York.
Whether you’re planning a cross country trip along Route 66 or having multiple holidays in the US, these four buildings should certainly be on your hit list. Just make sure that you’ve been accepted for an ESTA visa and there’ll be nothing to stop you from enjoying the sights.
