"For most people who visit the United States of America, the trip never talks further than a few known landmarks and some well-known states, which are undoubtedly ‘happening’ – and should be on your list to visit, but in my personal experience, I found that the US has much more to offer than the usual stuff we know or hear about. Since most of us remain aloof to the other small happening towns and label them without thinking twice, I decided to talk about a small yet interesting town Urbana-Champaign. I visited this place last October since my friend had moved there and during that trip, I was free to travel on my own and I discovered that this place is worth talking about." ow.ly/CuqJ30hNuYY...
