About us


HopAmerica.com is America’s new online travel guide. Put simply, we’re your resident travel maniacs who have a penchant for all things natural! That being said, man-made architecture is definitely something extraordinary, which is why it never ceases to amaze us what we’re able to discover just by trekking through the nation’s towns and cities. From the tourist hotspots to the hidden gems of the New World, HopAmerica.com aims to shine some light on all the breathtaking places lurking beyond the next plane ticket, cruise or drive.

Join us on our travels as we delve into the mysterious beauties of the United States to find the most idyllic vacation hideaways for the whole family. From season to season and from coast to coast, travelers from all walks of life can enjoy the many adventures that await them here thanks to both Mother Nature’s infinite creativity, as well as some of mankind’s greatest achievements. Not only will your travels enrich your life; they will also provide countless memories that could inspire future generations.

We wholeheartedly invite you to explore HopAmerica.com and become part of our growing community. We would also be delighted to hear from you either in the comments section below each post or through the Contact Us section of the website. Only through engaging with each other can we learn and grow together. And in the words of the legendary explorer Christopher Columbus: “You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore!”

Our team:

Michael Gilliam

Founder & CEO of HopAmerica.com and Hop Destinations, Inc.

Thanks to his day job, Michael continues to travel to virtually every nook and cranny of the United States, all the while armed with his faithful pro-level camera. That’s why no magical sunrise, jaw-dropping sunset or any other extraordinary feet of nature ever catches him off guard. He founded HopAmerica.com with a dream; one that currently sees him in charge of a three-man creative team and promises to reveal all the beauties of America to the good people of the world. That’s also why he takes great pride in every single snapshot he manages to pry away from nature’s infinite creativity, for in his own words, “Life is like a mirror; If you smile at it, it will smile back.”

Marijana Mihailov

Senior Editor & Social Media Manager

Due to the fact that this young lady holds a degree in economics, she is often mistaken for a businesswoman. Indeed, that is true, but only in part. A social sciences aficionado by day, she puts on her thinking cap and transforms into an avid, tech-savvy, social media wizard by night. Whenever the rest of the think tank hits a snag, she’s the one who comes up with an out-of-the-box solution. She is a priceless asset; HopAmerica.com would not be able to grow daily without her self-taught technical prowess. Fueling a wide range of different interests can be hard for anyone. However, this gal does it with ease, especially since traveling and spreading word of America’s undiscovered gems remains one of her most defining passions.

Aleksandar Stevanović

Senior Writer/Editor & Content Manager

After struggling for many years to find his purpose in life, the universe unexpectedly dropped a unique opportunity in this man’s lap; one that he would go on to discover was, in fact, his true calling. After spending some time as a freelance writer, Alex became part of the HopAmerica.com team. As someone whose only true skill ever was fantasizing about traveling to magical places and writing essays about them in school, Alex truly found his purpose among his co-workers. Today, he is an integral part of the executive trio and is in charge of the content that aims to make HopAmerica the leading authority in the online travel industry. Simultaneously, he assists his colleagues with the social networking side of things (and is also responsible for a vast number of Led Zeppelin quotes you might come across in almost every article). His mantra? “HopAmerica, Jimmy Page and the 1968 Dodge Charger are three of the greatest things ever invented.” And yes – exactly in that order.
