The United States has so many varied attractions, from coastlines to major cities, that deciding which ones deserve to be called the best in America is challenging. Here is the list of some of the best destinations that you would enjoy a lot!
Called one of the world’s seven natural wonders, the canyon area is located in northwestern Arizona. For millions of years, the Colorado River has carved out a colorful and flamboyant attraction. The canyon walls alone are impressive. The canyon is about 446 kilometers long, and its width varies between 6-29 kilometers. The maximum depth is almost two kilometers. The Grand Canyon is surrounded by the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the first national parks in the United States.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
The beauty of Hawaii lies in its mystical and dramatically shaped volcanoes. The Hawaiian Islands have two of the most active volcanoes in the world, constantly pushing lava. Better known as the Big Island, Hilo Island is a great destination to safely explore the world’s most active volcano as part of a guided tour.
Rocky Mountain National Park
Few can dispute the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and it is by far the favorite of nature photographers in the United States. Driving on North America’s highest road alone, Trail Ridge Road offers breathtaking views: glaciers, gravel-shaped mountain walls, and crystal-clear lakes. Up to 3,600 meters can be reached by car. The nature park also provides an excellent setting for a few days of hiking, as there are 500 kilometers of marked trails. At the same time, you can climb to the top of the mountains to enjoy memorable sunrises or see wildlife such as deer and deer. For lighter exploration, enjoy horseback riding or fishing.
Joshua Tree National Park
No wonder U2 named their record after this unique nature park. The desert area east of Los Angeles is known primarily for its scenic Joshua trees. The best way to explore the area is to take a few short walks that offer varied views. For example, the 49 Palms Oasis Trail takes you to the middle of a palm-filled creek, and most of the trails offer at least stunning rock formations. For an evening, drive to Keys View Hill, which offers spectacular sunset views of Mexico.
Yellowstone National Park
Natural forces have made Yellowstone National Park one of the most significant destinations in the United States. No wonder it was once the country’s first national park. The geothermal formations in the area, such as geysers, active mud pools, fumaroles, hot springs, and the sparkle of colors created by the minerals, make the cameras run hot.
The Last One: Yosemite National Park
Just standing still and looking around offers more natural wonders in Yosemite National Park than in many states as a whole. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Yosemite Falls is the tallest waterfall in the United States at 739 meters and the fifth highest globally. Other attractions in the area include the mid-split mountain-shaped Half Dome, the monolithic El Capitan rock wall, and the Merced River flowing through the park.
