In several different states, the USA has many natural wonders located all over the world. Using the excellent roads and highways, it’s usually very easy to get to all of these. These days, renting a car is also very cheap, so it is possible to go for a week or two to see one of the finest natural wonders of America.
California and Nevada’s Death Valley
The Death Valley is North America’s lowest, driest and hottest desert, and it is in Eastern California. Along the border of California and Nevada, east of the Sierra Nevada range, is Death Valley National Park. It is located below sea level. Death Valley has many beautiful natural features that originated from ancient oceans, such as salt pans.
The National Park of Denali, Alaska
It is always an adventure and a very memorable one to travel across Alaska. You start in the state of Washington and generally travel north through Canada’s British Columbia. You can stop in Anchorage for a last taste of home with its cafes and restaurants when you arrive at the Alaskan border and then head out into the rugged wilderness. In Alaska, there are many small and friendly communities and staying with one of them in an inn for a few weeks is the best way to get to know the state. It’s cool to see Denali National Park and there are small towns nearby where you can stay. For its wildlife, untouched natural environment and pristine beauty, Alaska is popular.
Florida, The Everglades
One of the world’s biggest natural freshwater swamps is the Everglades in Florida. With many different types of alligators, mangroves, fish and other small animals, it is home to many rare animals and plants. Many of the species and plants in the Everglades are threatened and are very carefully taken care of. You can take boat trips across the Everglades and for some traditional Cajun hospitality, even stay in nearby towns.
Arizona, The Grand Canyon
Without visiting the Grand Canyon, no voyage across the United States to see famous landmarks and national parks will be complete. The Grand Canyon is one of the largest canyons worldwide. Its rivers are 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and one mile deep. Not only is the Grand Canyon a natural wonder, but it is home to many archaeological treasures left behind by the local native tribespeople. Around the Grand Canyon, many fascinating buildings can be found, such as the Temple of the Ages and the Watchtower at Desert View Point.
New York’s Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is an iconic emblem of the United States and in general, of North America. Without visiting Niagara Falls, no driving journey across the states will be complete. The falls in Ontario and New York State are situated on the border of Canada and the United States. The Niagara Falls are North America’s most strong and are 167 feet tall. At Prospect Point Park, Goat Island or even the Canadian side, the falls can be viewed from walkways. There are also boat tours available and there are several areas where visitors can explore even more, including aquariums.
