You’ll Love Visiting These 5 Exotic Locations Right Here In The U.S.
One of the most incredible aspects of traveling in the US is the abundance of exotic locations at every corner. If you’ve been bitten by the travel bug, you’ll be pleased to know that there are countless otherworldly sites you can see right here in America. Here are just a few of these seemingly exotic landmarks that you’ll immediately fall in love with:
1. Denali National Park, Alaska
If ever you've dreamed of traveling to the Himalayas, you might be equally enticed by the rugged mountain landscape of Denali National Park. It's here that you can admire Denali, the tallest mountain in the U.S. at over 20,000 feet. That's just 10,000 feet shorter than Mount Everest - and the comparisons don't stop there. Beautiful hiking trails abound, as do opportunities to spot wildlife at every corner.
2. Sante Fe, New Mexico
Santa Fe has an energy that you'll notice from the minute you arrive. Not only is it considered the oldest state capital in America, but it's also one of the most colorful. Unique adobe architecture paired with countless art museums, delicious food, and stunning high desert landscape make this city an unforgettable destination.
3. Joshua Tree National Park, California
Arriving at Joshua Tree National Park in southern California, you may feel like you've arrived on another planet altogether. The famous Joshua Trees, which are native to the area, are whimsical and beautiful additions to the desert landscape. Equally stunning are the massive boulders that can measure several hundred feet high. It's an outdoor lover and photographer's paradise.
4. Big Sur, California
It's not hard to see why so many people compare the coastal landscape of Big Sur to the Italian Riviera. The Santa Lucia Mountains paired with the emerald blue water of the ocean creates a stunning vision that can only be described as Mediterranean in its beauty.
5. Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado
Last, but certainly not least, we arrive at the breathtaking landscape of Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado. The largest sand dunes in North America, this stretch of golden sand seems to come from nowhere. Hikers and explorers will love climbing up these dunes, and marveling at the view from Star Dune, which measures at 750 feet.
