America is full of famous places. Plymouth Rock (Massachusetts) was where the Pilgrim’s first landed. Independence Hall (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written. Mount Rushmore National Park in South Dakota contains a sculpture of the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln carved right into the granite of Mount Rushmore, and the Grand Canyon is a National Park in Arizona known for beautiful views and for being carved out of the earth by water erosion. America’s cities are home to the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty (New York City), Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco) and the White House (Washington D.C.).
