We might be biased but here at The Harvest English Institute we believe that our campus home states are some of the loveliest in the US!
We know what it’s like when you are studying abroad. Before you arrive, you have great intentions to explore your new home and visit all the main landmarks and attractions, you have heard so much about. However, often, the reality is, you arrive, get stuck into your studies and before you know it you are heading back home again.
With all students on our language courses we always stress the importance of a healthy work/life balance. Getting out & about exploring the local area is a great way to unwind after a busy week of studying and sometimes it’s also one of the best ways to practice and improve your English skills, without you even realising!
With this in mind, we have put together a guide of top landmarks and attractions you should a 100% make effort to visit this summer!
Los Angeles, California
What’s a stay in Los Angeles if you don’t head out for a day in Hollywood? Take a photo of the Hollywood sign, stroll down Hollywood Boulevard and see the walk of fame. You could even enjoy a tour at Universal Studios Hollywood. Who knows, you might even see a celebrity!?

If there is one reason thousands of people head to Orlando every year, it’s to visit the huge array of theme parks. From Walt Disney Resort to the Kennedy Space Centre, there is something for everyone in Orlando.
Long Branch, New Jersey
If you love history and architecture, Long Branch is the place for you! A beach resort established in the late 18th century, Long Branch still has many of its original buildings, enabling visitors to go back in time and enjoy a little slice of history.
If it’s spectacular backdrops you are after, head to Mount Mitchell, the highest point on the Atlantic seaboard, where you can take in the views of the New York skyline
Newark, New Jersey
There is so much to so and see in Newark but if we had to choose we wouldn’t pass up a trip on the Staten Island Ferry, a day exploring the breath-taking Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart and a visit to the Thomas Edison National History Park where you will get the chance to see Thomas Edison’s laboratory that has been completely preserved.
If you happen to be in Newark next spring be sure not to miss the spectacular cherry tree blossoms set in the 360-acre Branch Brook Park.
We hope you get time to visit at least one of these brilliant attractions this summer and if you do we would love to hear what you enjoyed most about your day out in the comments below.
