Das Hauptmotiv für eine Reise in den Westen der USA ist nach wie vor die Natur, die sich hier so vielfältig wie nirgendwo sonst darstellt und in Natur- und State Parks geschützt wird. Zu den Höhepunkten gehören zweifelsohne der Grand Canyon, der Yellowstone und der Yosemite National Park. Diese Naturwunder wurden zum Schauplatz unzähliger Filme um Indianer, Cowboys und die endlose Suche nach Gold. Am eindrücklichsten erlebt man die Landschaft bei sportlichen Aktivitäten: Sei es beim Kanufahren in Colorado, beim Klettern im Joshua Tree National Park oder beim Skilaufen in den Rocky Mountains. Hier reihen sich die Städte Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles und San Diego wie Perlen entlang der wildromantischen Pazifikküste. Nur eine überstrahlt die Ödnis der Wüste Nevadas: Las Vegas. Jede einzelne dieser Metropolen begeistert mit zahlreichen Attraktionen und Sehenswürdigkeiten. Der Westen der USA ist ganzjährig bereisbar, die beste Reisezeit ist im Sommer. Seit rund 25 Jahren ist das Reisehandbuch „USA-Westen" einer der Bestseller in Iwanowski's Reisebuchverlag. Mit den Bundesstaaten Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Kalifornien, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington und Wyoming •Ideal für Mietwagen- & Wohnmobilfahrer; Gutschein im Wert von 20 Euro für eine ADAC-Mietwagenbuchung •Ausführliche Informationen zu den Nationalparks und Outdoor-Aktivitäten •Alle Detailkarten können per QR-Code kostenfrei auf das Smartphone oder den Tablet-PC geladen werden
