America was once the wild frontier – sweeping lands, big buffalo, and bigger skies – but today the cities rival the natural wonders. From the dazzling lights of Las Vegas – the Strip is said to be one of the brightest spots on earth – to the toe-tapping, country-music bars of Nashville. In the American South, they are cities where the past is still very present, including Williamsburg as its mentioned in the map of USA with cities. Soulful, romantic Savannah visitors marveled at its vintage beauty — the cobblestoned streets, oak-shaded squares, and lacy architecture — as well as the way the city keeps pace with the times.
Charleston has history, architecture, culture, pleasant weather, gracious locals, and even proximity to the beach. Earthy, arty Santa Fe continues to enchant visitors with “the views of the mountains, the culture, the shopping, the restaurants, the wineries”. You can admire centuries-old adobe architecture, browse dozens of galleries, and indulge in outdoor adventure. Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, deep-dish pizza and the Cubbies: just three of the wonderful things that put Chicago on the world radar. It is a big city with a friendly vibe that is got a whole street devoted to drinking and dancing. Things constantly sizzle in Miami city as you can see in the map of USA with cities, where Latin beats and eats swirl in an Art Deco dream. South Beach is the spot for sunning all day on the white sand and clubbing all night.
Honky tonks and museums might not seem to go together, but their marriage in Nashville city is a strong one indeed. For some drinking and dancing, head straight for Broadway, where Legend’s Corner, Nudie and Tootsie have been serving up country, blues and whiskey forever. Vegas city as its shown in the map of USA with cities, the place that every foreigner cannot wait to visit when seeing USA. More lightbulbs in one place than anywhere, more ways to gamble than your wallet can bear, the glitter, glitz, and jangling slot machines are the city signature, but Vegas is more than just casinos rising out of the desert. For a small-town vibe in a big city, St. Louis is the place to be. Settled by Europeans in 1764, this “Gateway to the West” has been the center of America forever.

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, "the District", or simply D.C., is the capital of the USA. On July 16, 1790, the USA Congress approved the creation of a federal district to become the national capital as permitted by the U.S. Constitution. The District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state as its shown in the Capital of USA map. It was formed from land along the Potomac River donated by the states of Maryland and Virginia; however, the Virginia portion was returned by Congress in 1846.
USA Congress consolidated the City of Washington, Georgetown, and the remaining unincorporated area within the District under a single municipal government in 1871. On July 16, 1790, Congress passed the Residence Act, which approved the creation of a national capital to be located on the Potomac River as its mentioned in the Capital of USA map, the exact area to be selected by President George Washington. Formed from land donated by the states of Maryland and Virginia, the initial shape of the federal district was a square measuring 10 miles (16 km) on each side, totaling 100 square miles (260 km2). A new "federal city" was then constructed on the north bank of the Potomac, to the east of the established settlement at Georgetown. On September 9, 1791, the three commissioners charged with overseeing the capital's construction named the city in honor of President Washington.
Washington, D.C., is a planned city. In 1791, President Washington commissioned Pierre (Peter) Charles L’Enfant to design the new capital. A French-born architect and city planner, L'Enfant first arrived in the colonies as a military engineer during the American Revolutionary War. The L'Enfant Plan for Washington featured broad streets and avenues radiating out from rectangles, providing room for open space and landscaping as you can see in the Capital of USA map.
