However, some parts of the US stand out more than others. There is phenomenal natural beauty, huge wonders, and fantastic history. Many iconic legends originated in the US such as Elvis Presley, JFK, and Marilyn Monroe, but we aren’t here to tell you about them, we wish to show you some of the most mind blowing places we think you should visit in the US.
After reading this, you will definitely want to add them to your bucket list!
Arguably one of the coolest places that you could possibly visit when heading through the US. If you didn’t already know this, Yellowstone is centered over the Yellowstone Caldera which is a supervolcano. If you have never heard of a supervolcano, it can easily be summed up as deadly.
The volcano erupts roughly every 600,000 years, and the US is actually due one any minute… scary! But don’t let that put you off. You can easily stay in a West Yellowstone lodging that will put you in a great location to explore the National Park, and the Wyoming area! You will be left in awe, and will easily be able to spend a few days just exploring the Yellowstone National park. When you have finished exploring, treat yourself to a great wildlife safari, or simply take it easy, eat some great food, and enjoy the Wyoming hospitality.
The Grand Canyon is infamous, so we won’t go into too much detail. It’s located in Arizona, just outside of Las Vegas, and is best seen from a helicopter tour, if you obviously have the funds to do so. If not, walking tours are excellent for getting up close and personal to view this iconic scenery (don't forget your cambera!). You will really find this place eerie. The echo of your voice will travel for miles, yet people often find it a peaceful place as well truly amazing. Obviously, you can stop in the neighbouring and crazy Las Vegas if you wish to!
During the summer, Death Valley really does live up to its name. It’s one of the hottest places in the world, along with some of the deserts in the Middle East, so we definitely don’t recommend going in the height of summer. If you can visit during the cooler months you will have a better experience. It’s another eerie place to visit, but definitely one that you should put on your bucket list! Located in Eastern California, you will find many fun things to do once you’ve taken a tour of this super cool place.
