Exploring American Culture
America is an immigrant country with a great diversity of people, cultures, music, food, and sports—with just about every climate, landscape, and terrain imaginable. Its fifty states cover a vast section of North America, with Alaska in the northwest and Hawaii extending the nation’s presence into the Pacific Ocean. From the skylines of New York City and Chicago to the majesty of the Grand Canyon, global citizens have been flocking to the U.S. for many generations to pursue their dreams. Pop culture is everywhere, sports and news dominate many conversations, and American culture and traditions vary greatly depending on region, ethnicity and religion.
