Melanie Renzulli is a food, travel, and lifestyle writer with more than 12 years experience writing about the U.S. and international destinations. In 2009, she started the website usatourismboard.com, a crowd-sourced guide to USA travel, as a way to distribute ideas about the many travel opportunities available in the United States.
Melanie Renzulli has been writing about travel in the United States for more than a decade. Her work has appeared in numerous print and online outlets, including The Washington Post, Saveur, Babble.com, Gadling.com, National Geographic Intelligent Travel Blog, Frommer's, Fodor's, and Michelin Green Guides.

From the natural landscapes of the Southwest and the beaches of Florida to the skyscrapers of New York City and the historical monuments in Washington, DC, there are so many varied and exciting attractions in the United States. But there is also an information overload, making it difficult for many travelers to plan a great USA vacation. As the About.com USA Travel Guide, I look forward to bringing you the best in USA travel, providing you information on well-known destinations as well as highlighting new and noteworthy landmarks, restaurants, and events. I will also strive to make the USA guide site as interactive as possible, so please feel free to get in touch with your USA travel news via the links below.
