    The longest river in the USA is the Mississippi. It is 2350 miles long the Mississippi carries so much soil and rocks along with it that its nickname is the Big Muddy.

        Death Valley in California is the hottest place in the USA. In fact, it’s one of the hottest places in the world. The temperature here can reach 54 degrees! Many people died trying to cross it in the 19th century.

    Alaska is the biggest American state. Before 1867, it belonged to Russia. Then Alexander II sold it to the US for $7.2 million. Alaska is also the coldest

    The rainiest place in the US is Mount Waialeale in Hawaii. Hawaii is made up of 132 tropical islands, but people live on seven on them.

    The smallest state in the US is Rhode Island. It is about 1/500 the size of Alaska!

    The biggest city in the US is New York. Over 8 million people live here. During the day the population grows to over 20 million, as people travel to the city to work.

    The tallest building in the USA is the Sears Tower in Chicago. It’s 442 metres high! It has 110 stories and 16,000 windows. Until 1996 the Sears Tower was the tallest building in the world.

        In the US there are ‘federal laws’ which work across the country. But there are also ‘state laws’ which are different in each state. Age limits for starting school, driving cars, drinking alcohol, getting married and having guns are different in each state!

    American movies are full of big fast cars and car chases. The bad guys go straight past red traffic lights. The police do the same. In fact, American people drive very carefully, and the traffic is very slow. The speed limit in most states is 80 km per hour!

    Hollywood in Los Angeles is the center of American movie industry. Many famous actors and other celebrities live in or near Hollywood.

    Bill Gates’s Microsoft has its headquarters in Seattle.

    The USA is the world’s most industrial country. Most of the industries are in the north-eastern part of the country, especially in the area around the Great Lakes. The US produces 25% of the world’s carbon dioxide (the gas that is responsible for global warming).

      There are places in the USA where 90% of people are Spanish speakers!

    In Las Vegas you can get married immediately.

         New Orleans is one of the most beautiful American cities. But it hasn’t been very lucky with the weather.

       Elvis Presley’s house in Memphis is the second most visited building in the USA (after the White House in Washington D.C.)

    Washington, the capital of the USA, is in the District of Columbia (D.C.). This special district is not any state, because it’s the home of the federal government. It’s named after Christopher Columbus.
