Most AMAZINGLY Beautiful Places In America!

From sand dunes resting near Colorado’s
mountains to a rainbow-colored body of water, here are the most amazingly beautiful places
in America: 10. Angels Landing This awe-inspiring rock formation is located
in Zion National Park in Utah. It is also known as the Temple of Aeolus and
is 1,488 feet high. Hikers must take a 2.4-mile-long path to reach
its peak, which contains several sharp switchbacks, some of which are called “Walter’s Wiggles.” These arduous turns were named after Walter
Reusch; he was Zion’s initial superintendent and created the switchbacks in the mid-1920s. There is a point called “Scout Lookout,”
which many hikers stop at if they are worried about the remainder of the climb. However, if visitors are able to continue,
they will reach the top where the most astonishing views are available. Angels Landing is highly renowned due to its
semi-short trail and the payoff once you’ve finished the climb. The scenery of Zion Canyon is striking from
the summit. The layers of the rocks are aged 270 million
years, dating back to pre-Triassic times. The green vegetation of the canyon’s floor
dramatically contrasts the red, multi-hued walls of the jagged stone. The stunning perspective one gains from Angels
Landing makes it one of the most beautiful places in America. 9. Na Pali Coast This shoreline is located on the northern
side of the island of Kauai in Hawaii. It stretches for 17 miles; however, a large
part of this coastline is inaccessible due to its jagged rock formations that jut vertically
out of the water. These cliffs reach far above the Pacific Ocean,
protruding up to 4,000 feet. There is a trail leading to this area on land,
but it is difficult to traverse and spans 11 miles; so, the best ways to take in the
views of Na Pali Coast are by boat or plane. Although people don’t inhabit this area
today, there are records of settlers and natives living here from 1200 AD to some time in the
20th century. The dramatic cliffs and bright green colors
of Na Pali Coast in contrast with the blue ocean waves and clear skies make it one of
America’s most astonishing places. 8. Great Sand Dunes National Park Most people imagine these smooth, breathtaking
formations existing only in Middle Eastern deserts; however, the Great Sand Dunes National
Park is located in Colorado. The dunes are overwhelming, as they reach
up to 750 feet high and are the tallest in America; they also take up about 30 square
miles of land. The park itself spans over 107,342 acres. The sand was left behind by massive lakes
that once existed in the area. Due to volcanic activity, increasing sediment
deposits, and climate change, the lakes dried up and left behind a sand sheet. Once winds began blowing, the dunes were created. For a desert area, the temperatures in the
park are much lower than what you’d expect; the average highs only get to be around 80
degrees Fahrenheit. However, the lows reach far below freezing;
so, visiting the sand dunes during winter months might not be the best idea. Nevertheless, the smooth waves of sand next
to the rugged mountains create a beautiful and unique distinction. 7. Carlsbad Cavern This amazing cave is located in New Mexico
in Carlsbad Caverns National Park. One of the cavern’s most renowned areas
is its giant limestone chamber, also called the “Big Room”; it is about 4,000 feet
long, 625 feet wide, and 255 feet tall. It is North America’s fifth and the world’s
28th largest chamber. One of the cavern’s most renowned details
are the alien-like speleothems, or cave formations, that hang from its ceiling and ceaselessly
grow due to water drizzling through the limestone. Some of them also rise from the floor, meaning
the entire cave is decorated with strange, organic structures. Adding to the natural allure of this place
are the lights that people have installed for effortless viewing of Carlsbad Cavern’s
many rooms and formations. The lamps glow in various colors, giving the
cave an even more surreal appearance. While enjoying a guided tour of the cavern,
visitors can experience a light show at the end that truly illuminates all of the beauty
this wonder has to offer. 6. Watkins Glen This state park is located in the Finger Lakes
area of New York. Perhaps the most eye-catching detail of Watkins
Glen is a gorge that is about 400 feet deep; it was formed by Glen Creek when glaciers
from the Ice Age sank further into the valley causing the stream to become steeper. This created more rapid waters and cascades. There are numerous waterfalls within this
area of the park, including the Central Cascade, Cavern Cascade, and Rainbow Falls, which is
considered one of the most captivating; it descends beneath the Rainbow Bridge over varying
steps of jagged rock, flowing into the pool below. However, this entire area of Watkins Glen
State Park is beautiful. Green vegetation grows within the crevices
of stone, and running water adds to its dreamlike ambiance. There is a trail that allows people to walk
through the gorge with ease and enjoy the scenery throughout this remarkable place. 5. Multnomah Falls These stunning cascades are located in Oregon. A Norwegian businessman named Simon Benson
bought the land and added a bridge, trail, and lodge to the area surrounding the falls
in the early 1900s; he then transferred his ownership to the City of Portland so it could
be used as a public park. Multnomah Falls is about 620 feet high and
is the tallest within Oregon. It flows throughout the year and is fed by
the Larch Mountain underground springs. The cascade formed approximately 15,000 years
ago as a result of the Missoula Floods. During autumn, the leaves in the area change
from green to bright orange and red, creating an astonishing distinction between the water’s
blue-white hue and the surrounding forest. During the winter, snow falls and blankets
the vegetation, giving Multnomah Falls the appearance of a winter wonderland cast in
an icy monochromatic scheme. However, this place is enchanting during all
four seasons, making it one of the most amazing places in America. 4. Grand Prismatic Spring This otherworldly hot spring is part of Yellowstone
National Park and is located in Wyoming. It is the most significant in the United States
in size and is the world’s third biggest. It measures 370 feet across and is about 160
feet deep. It also puts out about 560 gallons of water
every minute. It was noted by scientists participating in
the Hayden Geological Survey of 1871. The spring was named after its striking neon
colors that contrast significantly from the land surrounding it. The bright hues of Grand Prismatic Spring
are due to microbial mats that circle the mineral-rich water. The mats create numerous different colors,
giving it a rainbow-like appearance; they are generally brighter in the summer, whereas
they become dark green during the winter. The spring’s brilliant blue center and color-changing
exterior make it one of the most beautiful places in America. 3. Dry Tortugas National Park This unusual park is located 68 miles to the
west of Key West, Florida and is only accessible by plane or boat. Dry Tortugas National Park is recognized for
its barely-disturbed coral reefs, tropical birds, and tales about shipwrecks and treasures. The main focal point of the park is Fort Jefferson;
it is an immense, incomplete fortress and is the most massive brick masonry within the
Western Hemisphere. It is made up of over 16 million bricks. It is known for its mix of historical artifacts
and natural wonders. From colonial years up to the beginning of
the 20th century, the Dry Tortugas served as an American naval base and provided shelter
and a fuelling station. It was later used as a prison and is where
four people were held for conspiracy concerning President Lincoln’s demise. However, nowadays the Dry Tortugas is a remarkable
place where visitors can enjoy the vast wildlife while they dive into history. There are nearly 300 species of birds within
the park as well as various stunning fish. 2. Glacier National Park This remarkable park is located in northern
Montana and takes up over one million acres of land. It has more than 130 lakes, hundreds of animal
species, and over 1,000 types of plants. It is part of a larger area that is sometimes
called the “Crown of the Continent Ecosystem.” Glaciers originally formed the vast mountains
found within the park during the world’s most recent ice age. However, most of them have disappeared since
then, and the National Park Service says that the remaining glaciers will most likely be
gone in about 12 years due to the warming environment. Nevertheless, this park is still breathtaking. There are numerous hiking trails for visitors
to explore the wildlife on foot and ice-blue lakes for people to take in the scenery by
boat or kayak. The crystal waters of Glacier National Park
reflect its majestic, snow-capped mountains and evergreen trees, enhancing its natural
beauty. There is even a highway called the “Going-to-the-Sun
Road” so travelers can enjoy the views inside their vehicles. This park’s diverse landscape ranges from
forests and mountains to valleys and tundras, making it one of the most magnificent places
in America. 1. Horseshoe Bend This section of the Colorado River is located
near Page, Arizona. The rapid current cut this peculiar shape
into the red rock of the desert landscape. The trail to get to this natural wonder is
less than a mile long but poses some obstacles along the way. Around 200 million years ago, sand dunes blanketed
this vast, open area. When minerals and water began flowing in,
the dunes eventually turned to stone. Over the centuries, various other sedimentary
rocks layered on top of the sandstone. The elements then wore away at the formations,
revealing lower areas of sand and tall cliffs with calcite and limestone. So, today, there are some areas of deep sediment
along the trail to view Horseshoe Bend; but further up the trail, you can see the jagged
rocks. If you pay close attention while you’re
hiking, a small dinosaur footprint can be spotted about 150 feet from the trail’s
end, giving proof of the area’s ancient history. After climbing to the top, the view of Horseshoe
Bend is stunning; the deep blue water of the Colorado River outlines the bright red rock
formation that appears to jut out of the center of a giant bowl. The 1,000-foot sheer drop to its base and
layers of the surrounding cliffs add to the overall beauty this place exhibits. Which of these places would you most like
to visit?

  1. I didn’t know that Hawaii is in the America continent. America goes from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego in Argentina. Thank you for the video any ways.

  2. Dinosaur footprints? Please! Dinosaurs are fairy tales made for children. btw…Santa Clause and the Easter bunny are fake too in case you haven't heard.

  3. This is an awesome list…THANKS! I give you a "10" for finding 10 amazing places that aren't the ones we all know already like the Grand Canyon, Niagra Falls, Yosemite, etc. I have lived here my whole life and had not heard of most of these. And these all really look amazing!

  4. God made some really spectacular places. 👍on pictures, 👎👎on your Wikipedia based facts of how they were made. Thanks for the video….

  5. Ugly ugly ugly you don’t even know what your talking about and everything you picked is butt ugly what a disgrace plus there is no climate change !! Period !!

  6. I'm sorry, but this is a major fail. There is no mention of Big Sur, CA, Grand Teton NP, WY , or even the Grand Canyon. Instead, the list includes Watkins Glen, NY and Dry Tortuga NP, FL. Anybody traveling the USA should look elsewhere for travel advice.

  7. There is North America, Central America, and South America. Please specify if you mean the United States of America.

  8. I stayed with Verna a few years ago in Oregon it is so beautiful. America has such beautiful places to visit.

  9. Thanks for the video, a few new ideas for us. Really impossible to make a list like this. So many beautiful places to see in the US. We've been to three on your list. Glacier National Park is my favorite NP out of the 18 we have visited so far. My wife likes Zion, especially the Angel's Landing hike.

  10. Kind of odd, unusual choices, although it is refreshing to see one of these lists that doesn't include the Grand Canyon. Also, they snuck in some pictures that weren't of the places they were describing (Canyon Overlook for Angel's Landing, Dead Horse Point State Park for Horseshoe Bend).

  11. Been to several 😃! Hawaii is my fav been to the four major islands .. Oahu, Kauai , Big Island , and Maui.

  12. oops , maybe relabel it to 'Most AMAZINGLY Beautiful Places In the USA' there are 55 Countries in America 'we' are just one of them.

  13. Fantastic video introducing the top best rated places where I visited..I recall all of them and revisiting soon … Thanks for sharing your video..

  14. I must hurry to go see Glacier National Park! It will be gone in less than 11 years!!! What a croc!!! LOL!!!

  15. They missed the Great SHAWNEE NATIONAL FOREST of Southern Illinois, it is a must see adventure.Join
    Facebook Goup

  16. Fantastic video. enjoyed watching it.
    Keep on going please.subbed your channel.
    I will be glad about it if you support me too please 😃😊 ❤&✌

  17. 9:25 lol "12 years"… Is that you AOC?! Get fucked! Inside the park's visitor center it use to be a propaganda sign saying that in 2020 the remaining glaciers will be gone. Now they changed it to "in the future". And now you come with the same talking point about the 12 years. You never learn.
    Do you know what's gonna END in 2020? The DemocRat party with the victory of DONALD TRUMP!
    MAGA2020 👌

  18. The Most Amazing places in America are Iguazu Falls between Argentina and Brazil and Caño Cristales in Colombia. You need to say UNITED STATES. America is the entire continent, including South America.

  19. There are hundreds of beautiful places across America, through every state… people like to travel outside the US, but you really don't have to…we have so many cultures and amazing things to see and experience here.

  20. I'm surprised that Detroit wasn't included. The sight of car jackings and abandoned houses are Pure Michigan…

  21. Multnomah Falls isn't even "the most beautiful" in the State of Oregon. Crater Lake is a wonder of the world. Haceta Head Light House is mesmerizing. The view from Ecola State Park looking south to Haystack Rock is a better photographic moment. The Columbia River Gorge – all by itself – is a top ten candidate. I know lists are speculative – but to leave off Crater Lake is a crime against humanity.

  22. Been to horseshoe bend, grand prismatic spring, and angels landing. I agree with most of these, but I'm surprised Yosemite isn't here! There are so many gorgeous places there that are better than a few items on this list

  23. i guarantee you the producer of this video hasn't gone to any of these places and to rank 10 of them is retarded.

  24. grand prismatic spring in yellowstone is very visible, but i have places in that park I like better. When I was a kid, we lived close enough for Sunday picnics….

  25. The Canyonlands in Utah or any place out west truly BEE A U TEE full Walked near Green river and actually can imagine walking on Mars with no vegetation or people around

  26. Like most people you assume when you say America you only include the USA. Actually Canada, Mexico, Central and South America are part of the Americas.

  27. I'm confused the most beautiful places in America?? but you only listed the places in the United States and the United States is not America. I postley take offense to ignorance, although I know a lot of people in the United States refer to themselves as Americans but so do the people in Argentina, But I imagine if you live inside a bubble you can call it whatever you like is long as you don't ever go outside that bubble cause you will be corrected if you're on vacation outside the United States anywhere on this continent I don't know Canada or Brazil and if somebody ask you what country you're from you say your from America be prepared to get smacked and then given a geography lesson.

  28. Going into this Video I was thinking… They'll probably mention Yellowstone but Glacier National Park is the true Gem of Montana… But it seems most people don't know about it… If you're thinking of taking a Family Vacation to Yellowstone… Go check it out for a day and hit the key areas… Then take the 6 hour road trip to see Glacier Park (go in the summer)… It's heavenly for nature lovers


  30. Glacier National Park is breathe taking. When hiking, you have to keep an eye out for bears. There's plenty of them there.

  31. Yay get to add more to my visit list. Glad to say been to 3 places on this list. Horseshoe bend and Yellowstone were beyond beautiful. Glacier and Napali are next ❤

  32. No Grand Canyon? No Monument Valley? No Black Canyon of the Gunnison? New gates of lodore in the Dinosaur National Park? No Grand Tetons? Bottom line is there's so many beautiful places to see in the United States. It's a shame that so many people spend a good chunk of their lives on their TVs or computers playing video games and stuff like that

  33. Have been to Napali coast by foot & boat. Amazing. Stone pathway was built by ancient Hawaiians to trade between the valleys

  34. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is impossible to pick the top 10 for everyone. The US has many National Parks and reserves to satisfy just about everyone's appetite for beauty. Thanks for sharing!

  35. Na Pali coast is not really in America. Obviously, it's not part of the American continent, and as the Hawaiian islands were stolen by the USA, it's arrogant to claim they are part of America.

  36. Any place where diversity brown isn't a stench. You need no better example of this than Chicongo or Detroit. If it's brown destruction is abound.

  37. I found this video to be very enjoyable and informative you can tell that there was a lot of time and hard work researching to bring us this video, and I will use this as a guideline when ever I'm planning my next adventures, thanks.

  38. One HUGE PROBLEM with your video is “This Planet was spoken into existence a little over 6200 years ago – – NOT MILLIONS. Isn’t there JUST THE CHANCE – God created everything you see JUST THE WAY YOU SEE IT??

  39. Artists Palette on Artists Drive in Death Valley National Park should be on this list. Also, the colorful and intricately carved hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park should also be on this list.
