20 things we love about the United States

 The land of freedom, the home of the brave and probably the most famous country on the planet. Here are our 50 favorite things from the United States (basically, one for each star of the US flag):

1. The Super bowl

The final game of the American football championship is much more than just a sporting event. When it's time for the intermission, in fact, it turns into one of the most watched and largest concerts in the world, with performers such as Bey oncè, Prince, Madonna, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga.

2. The flag

No one loves their country like Americans – and no one proves it as much as they do. You'll see Stars and Stripes everywhere: on house gardens, on stickers stuck on cars, hats, cupcakes, and yes, even on the moon. Fun fact: five of the six flags on the moon are still there, although they have now lost their characteristic color.

3. AOC & RBG

Two female models belonging to two completely different generations. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (also known as AOC) is a new New York congresswoman who is stirring up the waters (and gaining several headlines in national newspapers) in Washington, while Ruth Bader Ginsburg (known to most as RBG), is a veteran Supreme Court justice and an icon of the feminist movement.

4. The churros

OK, OK, they're not really an American invention, but they're a fixture of every dessert menu throughout the United States. And we would like to thank very much anyone who invented or made famous these fried sticks of pasta, slightly soaked (ok, completely immersed) of sugar and / or cinnamon and chocolate sauce.

5. Natural parks

This country is so big that, even if you have to travel long distances, you can find any landscape on earth: from the famous Grand Canyon, to the snow-capped mountains of the Rockies, to even the miles of miles of coastal beaches. These natural wonders are enclosed in 58 national parks, specially designed to ensure that they remain pure and intact for future generations.

6. Starbucks

Where would we be without Starbucks? The first store opened its doors to the public in Seattle in 1971 and has since been the world's favorite coffee shop. Starbucks even invented its own language to define the different sizes of the cups, which of course we all know very well!

7. Broadway

New York's iconic theater-filled street is still one of the best places in the world to enjoy a fantastic show.

8. Hollywood, Los Angeles

9. Cultural diversity

Americans celebrate diversity because it is included in their DNA: many Americans have origins that go back to Europe, Africa, Latin America or Asia, and many of them recognize that today they would not be the nation we all know without this heritage.

10. Exaggerated size

Whether it's huge portions of soda or endless sandwiches, there's nothing 'too big' about the American food industry. And that's really great if you're very, very hungry.

11. Sports

From the National Football League (NFL) to Major League Baseball (MLB), and from the National Basketball Association (NBA) to the National Hockey League (NHL), the United States is home to professional sports, and there's nothing Americans love more than cheering on their favorite teams.

12. The coasts

We cannot stop admiring them. You can put a last touch to your tan before an exclusive miami beach party, watch whales pass over the California coast, sample fresh lobster sandwiches with sea views in Maine, and try surfing in Hawaii – there's no doubt about it: there are some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world in America.

13. Festivals

From the extravagant creativity of Burning Man in the Nevada desert, to the Louisiana Jazz Fest, to the sunny stages of Coachella, festivals in the United States are aimed at everyone.

14. American TV

Saturday Night Live, Grey's Anatomy, The Simpsons, The Bachelor, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, Homeland, Breaking Bad, Parks & Recreation, FRIENDS... no matter what your tastes are in terms of television, probably in your list of recently seen TV series, there is definitely an American one.

15. The friendliness of the people

It doesn't matter if you're standing in line at the supermarket, if you're running to catch the metro before the doors close, or if you're biting into your pancakes for breakfast in the diner just around the corner, there's a 130% chance that someone next to you is ready to have a friendly conversation.

16. Opportunities

Whether you're looking for an internship, a job, or a college to study at, opportunities for a bubbly career and a good education are certainly not lacking in the United States.

17. The history of  the American world...

Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Nat King Cole, Michael Jackson, Louis Armstrong, Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday – American musicians have helped create and shape music for the rest of the world.

18. And its present

Some of these singers are definitely in your Spotify playlists of the moment: Bey once, Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Eminem, Madonna, Nick Jonas (and his brothers), John Legend, Kurt Cobain, Adam Levine, John Mayer, Pharrell Williams... and many many many others.

19. Disney

From the huge theme parks in Florida to the countless iconic films that have defined our childhood, Disney has brought happiness to adults and children since its first film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, released in 1937.
