Popular Sates in USA
Hello! My name is Natalie Franke. And I am an English teacher at the American Academy of English in Guangzhou China. Today’s video is about some of the most popular states in America.
大家好! 我是Natalie Franke，我是一名英语老师，来自中国广州的美国英文学院。今天我们将讨论一些美国热门的州。
One of the most popular states is New York state. That is “New York”. There are 62 cities in New York and the largest city is New York City.
New York city’s Manhattan island is home to the Empire State Building, Times Square andCentral Park. The Brooklyn Bridgeconnects Manhattan to the borough of Brooklyn.
The iconic Statue of Liberty stands in New York Harbor and is a symbol of America and its ideals of freedom democracy and opportunity.
To the east, Long Island has beaches, the Montauk Lighthouse, the ritzy Hamptons and Fire Island.
New York! Diversity and contrast, that's New York. The thunderous and spectacular Niagara Falls, the rugged mountains of the Adirondacks, the enchanting Catskills all the lakes great and small, the Hudson River and Fire Island.
New York City, the one and only. Shop on Fifth Avenue, feel the excitement of Times Square, the world of Wall Street, the vitality of Carnegie Hall or experience the heart of the American theatre industry on Broadway.
The next populous state is California. California is home to Hollywood's stars, Silicon Valley's technology, Napa Valley's wines and ancient Redwood and Sequoia forests.
The Golden State as the sometimes called is also the country's wealthiest and most socially and politically influential, and has been since it became a state nearly 170 years ago.
What is also great about the state is that it’s one of the only places in the world where you can go skiing and hit the beach all in the same day.
California is also home to some of the nation's most beautiful landscapes. Yosemite National Park, which the U.S. News ranks as a top hiking, adventure and family vacation spot, draws in millions of visitors every year.
Other top tourist destinations include the beaches of Southern California, Disneyland, Palm Springs, Lake Tahoe and the nation’s top wine-making region of Napa Valley. California is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and Oregon, Nevada and Arizona to the north and east.
