I've been fortunate enough to visit the US twice - both times to Florida.
Yes, it was for Disney World and Universal Studios - I'm not going to lie! The people are indeed hospitable and friendly - why wouldn't they be, they live in such a beautiful country.
It's always fascinated me that people criticise Americans for never leaving their country. Why would they - if they want snow and skiing they can go to Colorado, if they want the desert, they've got Nevada and Arizona, if they want hot beaches they've got Florida and California, if they want a city break, they've got New York.
Plus, the best golf courses in the world are located all over the States, which is reason enough for me!
