You could come to the mid west and go to the taste of chicago and wisconsin has something called summerfest that is around the same time during the middle of the summer.
The United States is a relatively big place.

Where are you going to be?

If you are going EVERYWHERE for about a YEAR, you could try visiting ALL of the NATIONAL PARKS with a Parks Passport.

That should keep you busy.
Alot of Americans gather at local restaurants and pubs
that Tourists don't know about and seldom come to.

I live in Las Vegas and a lot of locals try to avoid the
Las Vegas Strip....as unusual as that might sound to a
Tourist. We have lots of natural beauty here and great
outdoor activities like hiking, ATVing and biking.

Once you get here be sure to meet a few locals and ask
them what they do for fun. I am sure that they will
direct you to the Area's hangouts and natural wonders.
