Regardless of where you stand, a trip to the United States will present you with a culture that is no doubt different from where you came. From state to state, the people and atmosphere can change quite a bit. That said, there are some things that remain relatively common across the entire country. These are things that are considered very American and often associated with that country by visitors, tourists and outsiders. Certain cultural phenomena, whether they be related to food, nationalism, crime, sports or education, seem to stand out and scream I am American.
