America is a big country, and there’s no way you can see all of it in just one trip. But if you’re going to go somewhere, why not make it the most iconic and breathtaking places? The following list contains some of the most incredible destinations in America, so prepare your passport and get ready for an adventure!
Niagara Falls is a waterfall on the Niagara River, straddling the international border between Canada and the United States. It is one of the Great Lakes of North America, and forms part of the border between Ontario and New York.
The falls has five major sections: Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side; American Falls on the American side; Bridal Veil Falls (on both sides); the smaller Luna Island in between; and finally, small rapids leading up to Table Rock (also called Terrapin Point), which overlooks Goat Island.
The Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of freedom and democracy, welcoming those who seek shelter from persecution. It was given to the United States from France in 1886, but it was a gift that came with a great cost: when it was decided that the statue would be built on Bedloe’s Island (now Liberty Island), workers were contracted for this project at an exorbitant rate. As many as 25 people died during construction due to unsafe working conditions and exposure to toxic materials.
Although its history may be painful, The Statue of Liberty stands tall today as an iconic symbol of our country’s commitment to liberty and justice for all.
The Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge that was built in San Francisco, California, connecting the city to Marin County. It’s one of the most photographed bridges in the world and an iconic symbol for San Francisco.
The bridge opened on May 27, 1937 after being built for four years. It’s 1 mile long with two towers that stand 276 feet high and stretch 824 feet across the bay. The roadway is 64 feet wide and it’s still considered an engineering masterpiece today because it was built when there were no computers or 3D models available yet!
This landmark has become not only one of America’s most popular tourist attractions but has also been featured in countless movies over time like Star Wars: Rogue One as well as television shows like Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice where Superman crashed into it while flying through clouds at super speed (that would explain why his cape got torn).
If you want some great photos then try standing at lookout points right before sunset or around dawn where you can experience both sunrise/sunset views depending on which hours work best for you during your visit here!
The Grand Canyon
Located in northern Arizona near the border of Utah, the Grand Canyon is a natural wonder and one of the most visited tourist destinations in America. Its popularity stems from its massive size, breathtaking views and unique geology—and it doesn’t hurt that it’s also close to several other famous sites like Las Vegas and Monument Valley.
To get there: If you’re driving yourself, take I-15 south from Salt Lake City or I-40 west from Phoenix before getting on Highway 64 north towards Jacob Lake Visitor Center (about 1 hour). From there you can either continue down Highway 67 (paved but narrow) or take a tour via helicopter (about 1 hour). If you’re flying into Las Vegas International Airport or Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and have time for only one stopover on your trip – this should be it!
What To Do: You don’t need to do much at all! Just bring your camera so that when someone asks why they should visit as well; you can say “because I took some really cool photos there!”
The Alamo is a former mission and fortress compound in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The Alamo was originally built in the 18th century. The historic structure has been restored to its original appearance and is now located in Alamo Plaza near Downtown San Antonio. It was designated as a National Historic Landmark on December 19, 1960 by United States Secretary of Interior Fred Seaton.
The Alamo has long been an important symbol of Texas independence as well as American principles of liberty and freedom and is featured prominently in regional tourism campaigns. In 1936, it received recognition from the state legislature as being one of the best known landmarks in Texas-and arguably America’s most famous mission (the first being Mission San Luis Rey de Francia).
The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States. The memorial features 60-foot (18 m) sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. The memorial is accessible by road and is open every day of the year except Thanksgiving Day (the 26th day of November) and Christmas Day (December 25th).
The carving was started in 1927 and was finished 14 years later on October 31st, 1941 after 400 workers used dynamite to blast through tons upon tons of stone to make these famous faces come alive! The cost of this project? $989K back then which today would be about $13 million dollars!
Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone is the oldest national park in the world, and it’s also the largest and most visited of all time. It’s located in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho—all states that are easy to get to from California. This place is known for its hot springs and geysers (like Old Faithful), but also for its wildlife like grizzlies and bison.
Times Square is a major commercial intersection and neighborhood in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Times Square is one of the world’s busiest pedestrian areas, with an estimated 100,000 people passing through daily. It boasts an array of colorful billboards and electronic displays that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
The area was named after the New York Times newspaper; it was created in 1904 when the city moved its printing operations to West 43rd Street. The name was later applied to the square itself, between Broadway and Seventh Avenue.
Times Square has been a popular place for advertisements since at least 1888 when electric signs were introduced there (see examples below). In 1919, electric billboards were banned from New York City streets by order of Mayor John F. Hylan because they were considered ugly fire hazards or impediments to traffic flow
Disney World is a theme park in Orlando, Florida. It is the most visited theme park in the world, with an estimated 50 million visitors each year.
Disney World has four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. There are also two water parks: Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. In addition to these five major parks are several resort hotels that cater to short-stay guests (but often have longer-stay options as well).
Families who visit Disney World often stay for weeks at a time or even months! Among many other things to do at the resort there’s plenty of time available for relaxing on one of its many beaches or pools if you’re looking for something active during your trip too.
