Children are probably more au fait with America’s clichés and contemporary culture than most adults. However, it is unlikely they will know much about the bison that run wild in Yellowstone National Park, or that you can kayak across to the Statue of Liberty. They are unlikely to have shaken hands with a Navajo Indian on his home reservation or taken a ride in a traditional, wooden dory boat down the Colorado River. Take them horseback riding through a canyon and they will feel as if they have just entered a 3D world film. And that’s the key to enjoying family vacations in America. You can get all the thrills, wows, and action adventure of any 3D movie, the difference being that you can touch it, experience it and remember it forever.
