I bet I can guess, and I'll double down on betting that I would entirely agree with you. Yes

How about someone who actually went to America?

Well, it makes more sense than Columbus Day, and plus isn't associated with the destruction of the people and culture of two continents. So, better? Ultimately though it's still a celebration of Europe's discovery of the Americas, and hence very Eurocentric. Not that that's terrible itself, but let's call it what it is. Europes discovery of America, not humanities discovery of America. From the perspective of the American Indians, it's kind of silly at best. Yet another alternative (though still not a good alternative IMO) would be a celebration of Amerigo Vespucci who also proved that America wasn't east-Asia as was purported by Columbus. Eh, whatever.

Map-Maker Man day could work.

If they wanted a real discovery of the land of America day I suppose we could have, "That hunter guy or guys who said in whatever language they spoke, hey look the buffalo seem to be roaming this way lets follow them, and so they did so onto and eventually across the Bering Strait" day.
