If you’re in a big city in the US, chances are there’s an amusement park close by. Most amusement parks feature roller coasters and other exciting rides, as well as concerts with famous artists, and other performances.

Check out this list of some of the best amusement parks in the country:

Disneyland – Anaheim, California (near Los Angeles)
Disneyland is home to Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and the rest of the famous Disney characters. Almost every child in the U.S. grows up dreaming about going to Disneyland.

Disney World – Orlando, Florida

Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California
California’s only seaside amusement park, featuring an old fashioned rickety wooden roller coaster, a beautiful beach and a huge video game arcade. One of the best things about the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz is watching the surfers on the nearby waves.
