USA Greeters welcome you
The United States of America is the world’s third largest country in size and the fourth largest in terms of population – over 300 million people. Our proud tradition is built upon welcoming immigrants from all over the world. There is so much to see and do in the U.S.: the fall foliage in the Northeast; the tropical beaches in the South; the wide-open plains in the Midwest; and the art deco Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, an engineering marvel. Our gifts to the world have been our Hollywood movies and our Broadway shows. They were born in the USA, as was Bruce Springsteen! (Photos: Delphine Manet)

Denver Greeter invites you to discover the Mile High City and Colorado, home to seven professional sports teams, the Rocky Mountains, the Great Sand Dunes, 30 natural hot springs, and 58 fourteeners. Colorado is a magnet for adventure seekers as it offers the country’s best skiing, snowboarding, hiking, rafting, kayaking, and rock climbing. Return to Denver for its art, music, food, and shopping. With over 300 days of sunshine annually and low humidity, Denver is a great place to visit, any time.
Houston, fourth largest city in America, is also the most ethnically diverse. Residents celebrate that by enjoying food of many ethnicities. There are more theater seats here than any place except New York City. And the Museum of Fine Arts has just completed its third building on the compact campus. The world’s largest medical facility is here (Texas Medical Center) and NASA, home of the US astronauts. Considered the “energy capital of the world” there is truly something for everyone to enjoy.
New York City is the Big Apple! A study in contrasts, it is sophisticated and down-to-earth, stimulating and relaxing. Its people – and restaurants – are highly diverse. There is almost too much to see and do – world-class museums, Broadway shows, world-famous sports teams, and the 24-hour-a-day subway to get you where you want to go. But be forewarned: once you are here, you may never want to leave. (Photo: Delphine Manet)
