Imagine you got a chance to visit some or all of the most beautiful and eye-breaking spots in America. I bet that must be like a dream come true for you. Who doesn’t want to go visit a country that’s so rich and powerful and is blessed with sights both natural and man-made?
People go haywire (on a positive note), if someone just picks them up an opportunity to visit the marvelous places in the US. The mental framework we create when we hear about America is that it is the nation of sky scrapers. Tall and huge multidimensional buildings and such other similar structures surround the whole nation and its glorious cities under the amber sky. The people there work day and night with holding most of their potentials. But this might get you wondering as how, in such a place filled with traffic of both people and their work, would you spot a beautiful sight!
Well, nothing is impossible in a nation that is one of the superpowers in the world. Amidst this squirrel crowd lurks hundreds of places wherein beauty sleeps its best. Probably now you can get an inkling as why it is called “The America”. And to go visit the beautiful places there, surely you would be left with a huge dilemma as to which place you should go as there are thousands and no doubt you would want to go see them all which may not be possible for you in one go. And if you ask all the 300 million US residents for their favourites, you are likely to get 300 million different answers. So how do you go about searching and picking out the nation’s at least 10 most beautiful places? You need not panic since I have the solution for you to make it easy a plan for your visit. Take a look at the ten beautiful places of America.
1. The Squares of Savannah, Ga
This city is adorned with a blend of both the urban and the pastoral lifestyle gracefully mingling with each other in a Southern way. This place is surrounded by live oaks, magnolias which emits a gentle aroma, historic buildings that give a reminder of the past, 22 enchanting public square and secret gardens. It is a treat to the eye and a solace for the soul and a marvellous tourist attraction, all assembled into one. The Spanish moss drapes Pulaski Square, which is named for Revolutionary War hero, Gen. Casimir Pulaski.
2. Clingmans Dome along the Appalachian Trail in Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Appalachian Trail ranks high in the list of scenic beauties all along its journey through 14 states from Georgia to Maine. It was first proposed in 1921 by Benton MacKaye, a hiking enthusiast and later came into service across the Eastern states in 1937 as a continuous footpath. It seems to be a monumental achievement for the Americans. Clingmans Dome, which rises to 6,643 feet at Tennessee’s eastern edge, is the highest point along the 2,172 mile trail. The Smokies that surround holds more than 4000 species of plants, 230 types of birds and 65 mammal species. The place extends unbroken into every direction with its lushness intact. The clouds magnify the charm.
3. Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
6 to 9 million years ago, due to the grinding pressure along the Teton Fault created two massive sections of the crust of the Earth giving rise to Teton mountains. No doubt America has older and higher mountains than this but it’s no less alluring. On the east of the rift, is a separate buckled block, creating the valley called Jackson Hole. This is what makes the Tetons so amazing and spectacular. An eruption of granite caused a dozen of 12,000 foot peaks shooting from the valley floor. They Jenny Lake lies amid the grandeur on the left. It is 2.5 mile long water which reflects the mountain’s beauty. This lake embraces elk, moose and trumpeter swans and is one of the true jewels of the national park.
4. Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
Built in 1937, this $35 million concrete and steel structure not only connects San Francisco to Marin County but is a grand symbol of one of the world’s most striking cities. Golden Gate Bridge, which is painted in orange, has got twin towers of 750 feet tall that appears to have vanished into the sky and the cables that looks like cobweb stretches like a harp string. It is ranked as the world’s seventh longest bridge after its completion 70 years later. It is a structure, loved and admired by all as a work of art and gives a breathtaking view when angled from the top.
5. Hawaii’s Na Pali Coast
This place rests at the extreme edge of the country, away from the cradle of American Revolution and gives you an insight of its interior. In the hustle and bustle of amazing coral reefs, beaches and mist-shrouded volcanic peaks of Hawaii’s oldest island, the people have indeed found out its magnetic spot. Along the Kalalau Trail on the Na Pali coast of Kauai, luxurious mountains plunge into the giant Pacific 4,000 feet deep. The short hike island wherein into a crystal pool falls the Hanakapi’ai Falls and the tropical flowers abundant on the hill sides create a healthy rhythm of colour and light. You don’t feel like going home back!!
