The United States of America truly is a land full of opportunities but it is more than that. The country offers people the chance to experience some really wacky things. Although it doesn’t mean these American customs are bad, it just means that they aren’t the norm all around the world.

From obvious offerings to hidden gems you’d never think about, this list touches on just a few of the things that make the States so unique. Here are 17 unusual things that are considered “normal” in the USA.

Life is definitely different in America. While there are going to be cultural differences everywhere, that’s one of the most enjoyable things about travel – discovering what makes a different place unique.
