Considered a symbol of America since 1886, a gift from France, the Statue of Liberty represents freedom and wealth. The Statue of Liberty takes the form of a woman in a robe, representing Libertas, the Roman liberal goddess, her right hand holding a torch and the other hand a slate with an independent date of the United States.

For immigrants who come to the United States, the image of the Goddess of Freedom that holds the torch is a guarantee of escaping from poverty. This statue is an exemplary symbol of the ideal of freedom as well as of the United States itself.

Freedom Trail is the road through Boston downtown. Perhaps Boston is the best place in the United States to help discover the history of the American revolution because most events take place in and around Massachusetts state.

Walking in the Boston Freedom Trail is like visiting a revolutionary history museum, where there are many impressive images that capture the historical moments of the United States. There are a lot of dramas set here to recreate the American revolution, especially in which the film depicts the Boston massacre.

The Independence Building is a separate part of the National Historical Park, where you will also find Freedom Bells and several museums.

4. Fort Sumter, Charleston, South Carolina

The civil war fired at this fortress on an island that people created in the harbor of Charleston. The 34-hour war that later led to the defeat of the Alliance and turned Fort Sumter into a symbol of Southern resistance. Today it is considered a National Park and becomes a tourist attraction.

There is also a museum near the shopping center. This is one of the famous places in the US and bears the symbolism of the colorful country.

6. Rushmore President Mount, South Dakota

Located in the middle of the Black Hills hilly area of South Dakota state, at a height of 60m, portraits of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt are carved into a giant granite cliff. This is the most famous monument in America. During the period from June to mid-September, people use lights at night to create more majesty for these portraits.

7. The Alamo, San Antonio

A monument to commemorate 189 Texas volunteers who fought and bravely died in a 13-day siege in 1836 by Antonio Lopez De Santa Ana, Mexico. The people of Texas lost their city, but in the end, they still won and gained independence as their "Remember the Alamo" appeal.

8. Gateway Arch, St. Louis

As an extension of the Jefferson National Park, this iconic architecture symbolizes the importance of the City of St Louis, opening a gate as a New World with the Western Region. Try once to get to the top to see the best of the city and the beautiful Mississippi River.

9. Hoover Dam, Nevada-Arizona Border Dam

The Hoover Dam Hydropower dam holds the water of the mighty Colorado River, and creates hydroelectric power and supplies seven states. In 2010, people built the Hoover Dam Bypass bridge as a bridge to help traveling quickly and conveniently through this area. However, it not only enhances the infrastructure but also a great viewpoint when standing on the bridge.

10. Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

A suspension bridge between San Francisco and Marin County, completed in 1937, is a successful construction project in every way, enduring the strongest wind intensity and is not damaged by a strong earthquake like the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. This is one of the longest hammock bridges in the world, a symbol of the city of San Francisco, California, USA.
