The United States of America are home to countless beautiful landscapes and natural wonders so it’s hard and almost unfair to choose only 15 Magical Places. Nevertheless, we decided to put together a completely subjective list of places that left us completely speechless. Life is short, so make sure to include one of this beauties in your next trip. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv #5 Northern Lights, Alaska The best place on Earth to experience the magnificence of the northern lights is definitely Alaska. Head to Fairbanks between late August and April, sit back in a heated "aurorium" cabin or simply walk outside and look up to the sky. Aurora borealis or The Northern Lights are the results of collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun’s atmosphere and gaseous particles from Earth's atmosphere. They occur 60 miles above the Earth, making a colorful display of brilliant yellow-green and sometimes even red- purple patterns. #4 The Wave, Arizona The Wave is a sandstone formation located in Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. In order to maintain the natural integrity only 20 people per day are allowed to visit The Wave. For that, you will need a day-use permit that you have to get up to 4 months in advance in an on- line lottery, or by lottery the day before visiting. There are no marked trails or signs to guide hikers that have to be prepared also for fierce winds, harsh desert conditions and blowing sand. You ask: Is all that hassle worth it? Definitely yes. Here you can create the most wonderful Instagram- worthy photos that need no filter. #3 Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida Florida is without a doubt one of the most beautiful US states. Here in the Sunshine State, you have The Dry Tortugas National Park, located only 68 miles west of Key West. You can get there by ferry or seaplane from Key West. The park consists of small archipelago of seven coral islands and Fort Jefferson, a massive yet unfinished fortress made from 16 million bricks. Here you can find abundant sea life, coral reefs, and sunken treasures. #2 Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park The sacred place for Hawaiians is also the most active volcano on Earth. The Kilauea volcano is sometimes called, "the world's only drive-in volcano." It produces 250,000-650,000 cubic yards of lava on daily basis ever since January 3rd, 1983. You can take a hike through volcanic craters and watch blistering lava flows meet the sea. #1 Maroon Bells, Colorado Just 10 miles from Aspen, Colorado you have the most photographed mountains in the USA. Unmatched mountain scenery created by two peaks in the Elk Mountains called the Maroon Bells and the reflective lake. It took more than 300 million years of sedimentation and erosion to create the Maroon Valley, a natural wonder that truly encapsulates the beauty of the Rocky Mountains.

Tombstone, Arizona, American Ghost Town, U.S.A. Famous Landmarks. Tombstone is a historic western city in Cochise County, Arizona, United States, founded in 1879 by Ed Schieffelin in what was then Pima County, Arizona Territory. It was one of the last wide-open frontier boomtowns in the American Old West. The town prospered from about 1877 to 1890, during which time the town's mines produced US$40 to $85 million in silver bullion, the largest productive silver district in Arizona. Its population grew from 100 to around 14,000 in less than seven years. It is best known as the site of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and draws most of its revenue from tourism. The town was established on a mesa above the Tough Nut Mine. Within two years of its founding, although far distant from any other metropolitan city, Tombstone boasted a bowling alley, four churches, an ice house, a school, two banks, three newspapers, and an ice cream parlor, alongside 110 saloons, 14 gambling halls, and numerous dancing halls and brothels. All of these were situated among and on top of a large number of dirty, hardscrabble mines. The gentlemen and ladies of Tombstone attended operas presented by visiting acting troupes at the Schieffelin Hall opera house, while the miners and cowboys saw shows at the Bird Cage Theatre, "the wildest, wickedest night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast". Under the surface were tensions that grew into deadly conflict. The mining capitalists and townspeople were largely Republicans from the Northern states. Many of the ranchers in the area were Confederate sympathizers and Democrats. The booming city was only 30 miles (48 km) from the U.S.–Mexico border and was an open market for beef stolen from ranches in Sonora, Mexico, by a loosely organized band of outlaws known as The Cowboys. The Earp brothers—Virgil, Wyatt, Morgan and Warren—arrived in December 1879 and summer 1880. They had ongoing conflicts with Ike and Billy Clanton, Frank and Tom McLaury, and other Cowboys members. The Cowboys repeatedly threatened the Earps over many months until the conflict escalated into a confrontation that turned into a shootout, the now-famous Hollywood-ized Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. The actual gun fight was on Fremont Street a block or 2 away from the O.K. Corral. In the mid-1880s, the silver mines penetrated the water table and the mining companies made significant investments in specialized pumps. A fire in 1886 destroyed the Grand Central hoist and pumping plant, and it was unprofitable to rebuild the costly pumps. The city nearly became a ghost town, only saved from that end because it was the Cochise County seat until 1929. The city's population dwindled to a low of 646 in 1910, but in 2010 the population was 1,380. It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names Boothill Graveyard Tom McLaury, Frank McLaury, and Billy Clanton, killed in the O.K. Corral shootout, are among those buried in the town's Boothill Graveyard. Of the number of pioneer Boot Hill cemeteries in the Old West, so named because most of those buried in them had "died with their boots on", Boothill in Tombstone is one of the best-known Boot hill Cemetery - http://youtu.be/ZHbGtUv9NBw Bodie Ghost Town. - http://youtu.be/1XbKcwovqPQ All images are either in the Public Domain or on Google images labeled for reuse.

Grand Canyon - Arizona - USA. Famous Landmarks. The Grand Canyon, is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the state of Arizona in the United States. It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park, the Hualapai Tribal Nation, the Havasupai Tribe and the Navajo Nation. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited it on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,000 feet or 1,800 meters). Nearly two billion years of Earth's geological history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. While the specific geologic processes and timing that formed the Grand Canyon are the subject of debate by geologists, recent evidence suggests that the Colorado River established its course through the canyon at least 17 million years ago. Since that time, the Colorado River continued to erode and form the canyon to its present-day configuration. For thousands of years, the area has been continuously inhabited by Native Americans who built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. The Pueblo people considered the Grand Canyon ("Ongtupqa" in the Hopi language) a holy site, and made pilgrimages to it. The first European known to have viewed the Grand Canyon was García López de Cárdenas from Spain, who arrived in 1540. Weather in the Grand Canyon varies according to elevation. The forested rims are high enough to receive winter snowfall, but along the Colorado River in the Inner Gorge, temperatures are similar to those found in Tucson and other low elevation desert locations in Arizona. Conditions in the Grand Canyon region are generally dry, but substantial precipitation occurs twice annually, during seasonal pattern shifts in winter (when Pacific storms usually deliver widespread, moderate rain and high-elevation snow to the region from the west) and in late summer (due to the North American Monsoon, which delivers waves of moisture from the southeast, causing dramatic, localized thunderstorms fueled by the heat of the day). Average annual precipitation on the South Rim is less than 16 inches (35 cm), with 60 inches (132 cm) of snow; the higher North Rim usually receives 27 inches (59 cm) of moisture, with a typical snowfall of 144 inches (317 cm); and Phantom Ranch, far below the Canyon's rims along the Colorado River at 2,500 feet (762 m) gets just 8 inches (17.6 cm) of rain, and snow is a rarity. The Grand Canyon area has some of the cleanest air in the United States. However at times the air quality can be considerably affected by events such as forest fires and dust storms in the Southwest. Aside from casual sightseeing from the South Rim (averaging 7,000 feet [2,100 m] above sea level), rafting, hiking, running, and helicopter tours are popular. The Grand Canyon Ultra Marathon is a 78-mile (126 km) race over 24 hours. The floor of the valley is accessible by foot, muleback, or by boat or raft from upriver. Hiking down to the river and back up to the rim in one day is discouraged by park officials because of the distance, steep and rocky trails, change in elevation, and danger of heat exhaustion from the much higher temperatures at the bottom. Rescues are required annually of unsuccessful rim-to-river-to-rim travelers. Nevertheless, hundreds of fit and experienced hikers complete the trip every year.

Although the street is doing it’s best to stay a little bit different from the rest of the streets out there, it’s gotta be a nightmare to drive on! It attracts up 17,000 people during the summer weekends and it’s a weird iconic symbol of San Fran, where it’s okay to not be straight. 9. Walking to the Sky, Pennsylvania The sky is this limit for this statue. This is a 100 foot statue soaring over the sky at a 25 degree angle. This statue was inspired by the father of the designer. He said his father told him to travel to the sky to talk to a giant that told them what needed to be done back on earth. 8. Tick-Tock the Crocodile If you remember seeing the movie Hook or are familiar with the story of Peter Pan, you’ve probably heard of Tick-Tock the Croc. The depiction of this immortalized crocodile is found in Mt. View, California at a train station. It features 2 kids sitting on the back of a crocodile which really seems like a bad idea. This has been a famous statue for kids to get on the back of a take photos with. 7. Whittier, Alaska Outside of a couple cities, the state of Alaska is pretty remote and the rest of the towns are quite small. But could you imagine a city where all the residents actually live in the same building. A 14 story former barracks building was transformed into an interior city. The police department, post office, church, playground and medical center are all found right here. Hopefully they got a fire department too because one flame might bring down the whole city! The population of whittier remains at a cozy 200 people. 6. The Mutter Museum If you enjoy weird medical mysteries and oddities, the mutter museum might be the place for you. This is most likely one of the weirdest places in the US and the world. Here you can find frightening things like jars filled with peeled off human skin, hippopotamus fat from South Africa, a book bound in human skin and all sorts of horrific things that might keep you up at night Don’t forget about the slices of Einstein’s brain on display that were taken without permission and kept in this ! They also house a large inventory of skulls that were used to see if the craniums hold some sort of anatomical differences from different parts of the world. If you’re not slightly creeped out by this place, there’s something wrong with you.

Golden Gate Bridge - California - U.S.A. Famous Landmarks. The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, the mile-wide, three-mile-long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the U.S. city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County, bridging both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world". It opened in 1937 and was, until 1964, the longest suspension bridge main span in the world, at 4,200 feet. Until 1964, the Golden Gate Bridge had the longest suspension bridge main span in the world, at 4,200 feet (1,300 m). Since 1964 its main span length has been surpassed by ten bridges; it now has the second-longest main span in the United States, after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City. Total length of the Golden Gate Bridge from abutment to abutment is 8,981 feet (2,737 m). The Golden Gate Bridge's clearance above high water averages 220 feet (67 m) while its towers, at 746 feet (227 m) above the water, were the world's tallest on a suspension bridge until 1998 when bridges in Denmark and Japan were completed. The bridge is popular with pedestrians and bicyclists, and was built with walkways on either side of the six vehicle traffic lanes. Initially, they were separated from the traffic lanes by only a metal curb, but railings between the walkways and the traffic lanes were added in 2003, primarily as a measure to prevent bicyclists from falling into the roadway. A visitor center and gift shop, dubbed the "Bridge Pavilion", is located on the San Francisco side of the bridge, adjacent to the southeast parking lot. It opened in 2012, in time for the bridge's 75th anniversary celebration. A cafe, outdoor exhibits, and restroom facilities are located nearby.

Take a tour of Asia's Greatest Landmarks -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. I'd like to show you Asia's Greatest Landmarks Angkor Wat, in Cambodia is the primary temple complex in the ruins of the world's largest pre-industrial city. Dating to the 12th century, this enchanting site has been bedecked with ancient statues and stone structures. Buddhist statues are found in abundance owing to Theravada Buddhism; the dominant religion since here the 13th century. The Great Wall of China is an enduring symbol of strength and a wonder of the world. Erected on the orders of China's first emperor, the oldest part of the site dates to approximately 2500 years ago. Spanning over miles of Chinese hills, it is arguably the most recognized international symbol of the country, visible even from space. A monumental icon of love adorning the land of India is the Taj Mahal. It was the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who decreed the construction of this white marble wonder in memory of his wife. At twilight, this spirited monument radiates pure divinity, basking in the mild tones of the progressing dusk. A memento of the political, artistic, religious and architectural history of Beijing, China is The Forbidden City. The immaculate and immensely detailed architecture of the site honors the supremacy of Imperial power. Spread graciously over more than 70 hectares of land, it finds mention in the world's largest palace complexes. Mount Fuji, with its majestic height of nearly 3776 meters and breathtaking panorama, epitomizes nature's beauty. Its immense height and girth make it the tallest mountain in Japan. Surrounded by lush tea fields, it is a highly revered and sacred religious site, a reason thousands of pilgrims visit it every year.
