The United States of America is a federation of 50 states ( US states ). 

The state is the primary state territorial unit of the United States. Since 1959, there are 50 of them. Each of them has its own flag and motto.

 The word "state" dates back to the colonial period (around 1648). This word was sometimes called individual colonies. It was widely used after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The state has its own constitution, legislative, executive and judicial branches. Each US state is divided into counties administrative divisions of the second level. They are smaller than the state, but larger than or equal to the city. An exception is the five boroughs of New York City. According to the Bureau of the Census, there are 3,143 counties in the country.

The 50 US states have borrowed their names from many languages. Half of them have their names from the languages ​​of the North American Indians. The rest of the states received names from European languages: Latin, English and French.

 In addition to the states, the country includes and is administered by administrative - territorial units with the status of a federal district or federal territory - the District of Columbia and a number of islands.

Regions and resorts of the USA

USA - A patchwork quilt of 50 states and the mansion-based District of Columbia, where the capital Washington is based . It has little in common with other American cities: it is pompous, monumental, neat to the point of pedantry, all the legendary symbols of democracy are located here - from the White House to the Capitol. And also - many well-groomed parks and squares, famous museums and monuments. It is better to stay on Capitol Hill or in Georgetown - a cozy area reminiscent of England.

In Washington, it is forbidden to build buildings higher than the Capitol, so skyscrapers cannot be found here.

California  is a paradise for everyone who cannot imagine life without pleasure. The sun-drenched state, washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean, beckons with an atmosphere of carefree relaxation and endless celebration. This is where Los Angeles is located which has fulfilled so many dreams and broke so many hearts. San Francisco  is a city of madmen: free artists, hippies, freaks - all those who are used to expressing themselves outside the box. The San Diego beaches, a stone's throw from here to Mexico. And in Yosemite National Park - more than 1000 km of scenic trails and the highest waterfall in North America.

Only Florida, washed by the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, can compete with California for the title of beach Mecca. In Miami travel party-goers of all stripes, in Orlando - eternal children who dream to plunge into the worlds of Walt Disney, Harry Potter and the studio "Universal".

Texas is what it is imagined to be, with cowboy ranches, farmland, roadside cafes with barbecues and burgers. In Austin, there is a university, had grown to a whole district with galleries, libraries and art objects, Houston is famous for the Theater and the Museum quarters.

The cities of Nevada  are outlandish oases in the middle of a vast desert. The most famous is Las Vegas, another symbol of the shaky American dream. A string of casinos trying to outdo each other in ostentatious luxury, pretentious restaurants, hotels and shops, and in the neighborhood - almost impoverished neighborhoods, obscured from tourists by the facades of skyscrapers.

The opposite of Vegas is Death Valley, alien to the kitsch and bustle, with cracked earth and sand dunes that look truly alien.

The United States cannot be imagined without New York - ultra-modern, ultra-fast, symbolizing success. Without business-like Chicago and hospitable Hawaii, the majestic Grand Canyon and the bustling Niagara. You can spend half your life getting to know American cities without fully solving all the secrets of a huge country.


About USA states | information

It is impossible to make a general portrait of the US climate: each region has its own characteristics. In the northeast - in New York, Chicago, Washington - hot summers and snowy winters, precipitation falls at any time of the year. The southeast (Orlando, San Antonio) is characterized by higher temperatures. The northwest and west with Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles are dominated by semi-arid and alpine climates. On the coast, winters are milder, summers are warmer, and rains are more frequent.

Florida and Hawaii are real tropics with year-round heat. Alaska goes to the other extreme: local temperatures can run up to -30 ° C. In order not to be mistaken with the choice of the season (and the right wardrobe) for travel, it is better to check the weather forecast for a particular region.

Why are American states called states?

The name "United States of America" ​​was first mentioned in January 1776 in a letter to Stephen Moylen, assistant to George Washington

The word "state" itself is derived from the German Staat, meaning "state, government, community." It is customary to call administrative-territorial units endowed with relative sovereignty: their legal and legal status is established in the federal constitution.

Initially, the United States consisted of 13 states formed from British colonies and signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Today there are exactly 50.

The name "United States of America" ​​was first mentioned in January 1776 in a letter from Stephen Moylen, an assistant to George Washington, addressed to Lieutenant Colonel Reed. In April, the same toponym appeared in an anonymous essay in one of the Virginia newspapers (the author signed it succinctly - "The Planter"), and was officially fixed in the June draft of the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union - the country's first constitutional document. This draft was prepared by John Dickinson, but the phrase "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" - exactly so, in capital letters - is also found in the draft of the Declaration of Independence of Thomas Jefferson, so it is still unknown who the idea belonged to.
