Are you a lover of art, travel, and exploration? Do you want to see the most beautiful parts of America? If so, then we have some amazing recommendations for you! The United States is home to some of the most unique, interesting and diverse landscapes in the world. From deserts to mountains, lakes to forests: there’s no shortage of things worth exploring here in our great country. And one thing that always makes me excited about traveling is finding new places that are filled with culture that I’ve never experienced before! So without further ado
1. The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is a national park located in Arizona. It’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and over a mile deep.
2. Venice Beach
Venice Beach is a popular tourist destination, known for its boardwalk, beachfront walkways and canals. It’s also a hotspot for skateboarding and rollerblading–and the birthplace of modern street performance art.
The neighborhood draws artists from around the world who come here to perform their work on the streets of Venice Beach. You’ll often see drummers playing percussion instruments like bongos or congas as they sing songs about peace and love; jugglers juggling different objects such as balls or knives; magicians performing tricks like pulling coins out of your ear; fire dancers spinning flaming batons above their heads while doing acrobatics over burning coals (this requires tremendous skill); acrobats balancing themselves on one foot while holding onto long poles with no hands (again requiring tremendous skill).
You won’t want to miss seeing these performers in action!
3. NYC’s Theater District
In New York City, the Theater District is a neighborhood located in Midtown Manhattan. It is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the city and has many theaters and performance venues.
Theater was first performed here in 1732 when Lewis Hallam Jr. opened his playhouse called ‘Little Theatre’, which later became known as ‘John Street Theatre’. In 1821, Niblo’s Garden became famous for its open-air concerts held during summer nights on its terrace overlooking Broadway; this tradition lasted until 1858 when it burned down due to an electrical fire caused by faulty wiring during one such concert. Today there are over 40 active theaters located within this district, making it one of America’s most important cultural centers outside of Hollywood.
4. Nebraska’s Sandhill Crane Migration Route
Nebraska’s Sandhill Crane Migration Route is a great place to see the migration of sandhill cranes, who travel from Canada to Mexico and back again every spring and fall. The route passes through Nebraska’s Platte River Valley, a flat area that makes it easy for these large birds to fly.
5. Seattle’s Pike Place Market
Pike Place Market is a public market in Seattle, Washington. It is one of the oldest continuously operated public markets in the United States and has been called “the original farmers’ market”. The Market opened on June 17, 1907 and is named after James A. Pike (1809-1891), an early settler who arrived in 1851 aboard the Oregon Lyceum with his wife Rhoda Borenstein Pike.
The market has many specialty shops including those selling produce, meat, seafood, flowers and crafts; it also has art galleries and restaurants. In addition to being known for its fishmongers (known as “The People’s Market”), it was featured in several scenes from Sleepless In Seattle starring Tom Hanks as Sam Baldwin who lived at 1217 First Avenue East.
6. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a United States National Park located in the U.S. state of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. It encompasses two active volcanoes, Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, plus the recently dormant Mauna Kea volcano, which extends up to 13,796 feet above sea level at its summit (and another 5,000 feet below).
Hawaiian legends say that Pele lives within Halemaumau Crater at Kilauea Caldera and she’s responsible for creating new land when she dances on top of it!
7. Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, NM
The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, NM is a great place to learn about the life and work of this American artist.
Georgia O’Keeffe was born on November 15th 1887 in Sun Prairie Wisconsin. She moved to New Mexico in 1929 where she lived until she died on March 6th 1986 at the age of 98 years old. There are many famous paintings that were created during her time there including “Black Mesa Landscape” (1946) and “Cow’s Skull: Red Flower” (1938).
The museum itself has over 600 pieces on display including photographs taken by William Claflin which show how he worked with Georgia before they got married in 1924 as well as paintings done by both artists together throughout their careers showing how they influenced each other’s styles over time!
