Since it’s such a massive contract, it’s no surprise that the United States is filled with great tourist destinations. There are even cities that embrace Hispanic and Latino history and culture, making them perfect places for residents of Mexico to visit on vacation. Of course, cities like New York and Los Angeles are obvious destinations. But there are many other American cities that provide a diverse and welcoming setting for visitors from Latin America. If you want to explore one of these cities on your next vacation, here are some destinations to consider.

Columbus, Ohio

Ohio’s capital city, Columbus, hosts a variety of Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations. Events include art exhibits, quinceañeras, and festivals featuring Latin cuisine. If you go in October, you’ll get to experience the annual Mexican Independence Day Parade. The parade is incredibly festive, featuring amazing live music, performances, and dancing. Columbus is also home to the fifth-largest Hispanic community in the country with over 100,000 residents identifying as Latino. The city also has a beautiful conservatory and botanical garden, as well as an indoor LEGO-themed playground.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Philadelphia is perhaps the most important city in terms of American history. But don’t miss Philly’s historic Centro de Oro neighborhood, where you can savor incredible Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Mexican cuisine. Attend the annual Feria del Barrio festival to celebrate Latino arts and culture while also exploring the Philadelphia Latino Film Festival for fascinating exhibits and retrospectives. Naturally, there are also parks, museums, and historic sites related to American history.

As a bonus, sports fans will love visiting the City of Brotherly Love. Philly has pro teams in all of the major sports, including soccer. You can even place wagers on sporting events from all over the world. Thanks to roughly a dozen legal and credible Pennsylvania sportsbooks, anybody visiting Philadelphia can engage in sports betting from their favorite mobile device.

Salt Lake City, Utah

Over the past decade, Salt Lake City has emerged as a vibrant hub for art and music, making Hispanic celebrations here especially exciting and colorful. If you have any doubts about its Hispanic credentials, consider that approximately 20% of the population identifies as Hispanic or Latino, ensuring an authentic experience. Events like the Festival Latino Utah and Mega Peruvian Festival offer opportunities to immerse yourself in various cultures while having a great time. Meanwhile, don’t miss the famous Great Salt Lake and some of the other natural features that make Utah one of the most beautiful states in the U.S.

Charlotte, North Carolina

The Hola Charlotte Festival is a vibrant showcase of the city’s rich Hispanic influence, making it perfect for those unfamiliar with its diverse culture. With strong Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, Colombian, and Ecuadorian communities, this massive street party in uptown Charlotte features food stalls, street vendors, and an abundance of music and cultural performances. While in town, you can also enjoy the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Carowinds amusement park, and a great collection of museums.

Chicago, Illinois

The Hispanic population in the Windy City is over five times the national average. While great to visit most times of the year, Hispanic Heritage Month is the best place to see the Windy City, as you can experience art exhibits, film festivals, dance performances, concerts celebrating Mexican composers, and symphony orchestra performances. Outside of the strong Hispanic culture that’s evident throughout the city, Chicago is an amazing place for anyone to visit. It has beautiful green spaces like Millenium Park and Grant Park, as well as world-class shopping, one of the world’s best aquariums, and the world-famous Navy Pier, which is located on the shores of Lake Michigan.

New Orleans, Louisiana

Located on the other side of the Gulf of Mexico from Yucatan, New Orleans is a huge party town at all times of the year. In addition to Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, there are numerous Mardi Gras parades and events showcasing Latin culture and heritage with decorated floats. No city is better at creating floats and parades than New Orleans. You can also enjoy traditional foods and live music festivals. Additionally, New Orleans is home to the Barrio Latino district, renowned as one of the best places in America for authentic Latin food. The local delicacy isn’t bad either, as the French Quarter and Bourbon Street offer an endless number of options for good dining and unforgettable nightlife.
