Things that you should know about the North American lifestyle
When you are planning to visit North America on a short or an extended holiday, it helps if you brief yourself with some good research about the culture and lifestyle of the continent. Traveling is more about experiencing a new culture than visiting a new place and that being said, a true travel experience comes from experiencing the native American culture history and understanding the history of the place you are visiting. Particularly if you are from a different continent or are visiting North America for the first time, here is some information about the culture of North America that you definitely should know.
If you are not well aware of the American culture and values, you may find yourself wondering what sort of people they are. So here are some very essential facts about North America and its people that you should know before you arrive in the continent.
North American culture
One of the first things that will give you an understanding of the Americans’ think big proposition is when you see enormous trucks and SUVs on the roads. Americans like their large space and believe space to be synonymous with practicality. Another everyday life aspect that you can associate with the American culture and lifestyle of thinking big is the food size. Most American restaurants serve rather large portions so if you aren’t sure, you should definitely check on the portion size with your server!
With regards the food, there is another very clear aspect of American culture that is evident. Americans are always on the go so the food that they regularly eat is the ‘food on the go’. You will often spot Americans with their coffee mugs, beverages or packaged food in the on-the-go packaging walking down the streets or in public transport. You may even notice people grabbing a bite or a drink while queueing up for the bank. Drive-ins and Drive thru takeaway counters are very common in the fast food joints here.
Sports is an integral part of the American culture
Sports is another important aspect that has its deep roots in American history and culture. The most popular of sports in North America is the baseball and the basketball. While there are other sports such as soccer or cricket, they aren’t as big as the basketball or baseball. Sports is a huge uniting factor in the American culture which was rather evident when over 100 million American watched the Superbowl 2017 with huge enthusiasm.
Another aspect of American culture values is the spirit of competition. Among the things to know about American culture, this is an aspect that you will notice in young Americans too. Americans thrive on competition and children from a very young age are encouraged to be competitive. Competition is deep rooted in American work culture and values too. Americans don’t sit back and wait; they tend to take things into their hands and make things happen – that’s the gist of American culture values and beliefs.
Across the North American continent, there are efforts made to preserve the American art, history and culture. Visiting some of these places will help you experience the native American culture history. The National Museum of the American Indian, the Cherokee Heritage Center in Oklahoma or the annual Gathering of Nations event in Albuquerque, New Mexico are some of the experiences that you definitely should plan to include in your American holiday if you are keen on understanding North American culture facts and want to live White American culture values.
