Some Places in the U.S. You Haven’t Visited But Need To
It’s no wonder why millions of people flock the United States every year and it’s not just about chasing the American dream. Being an American, you don’t really believe there is much to see in this country when it comes to natural landmarks and the overall beauty of nature. It’s no secret that Europe and its historical sites or maybe the tropical beaches of Asia and South America are more appetizing. However, you must understand that despite of the many places to visit in the other parts of the world, the U.S. itself has more than enough to offer; and as a matter of fact, you probably have not visited many of these underrated natural gems.
1 – Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave System
Found inside the Mammoth Cave National Park, the Mammoth Cave System in the State of Kentucky is known as the largest cave system in the world. What we mean by “largest” here is that the entire system is huge! The 390-kilometer passage system is popular for its labyrinth nature, which in turn is mysterious enough that explorers get to discover new routes on an almost daily basis. For the moment, there are several available tours in the cave system, or at least for the known or discovered parts.
2 – The Appalachian Trail
It’s true that the Appalachian Trail is no stranger to both Americans and foreigners, but only a very few can boast having to attempt and succeed on an entire walk in a single trek. So, if you haven’t been there and would want to gain a unique experience unlike most of those who have already visited, then you should try the trail covering the Southern Terminus Point at Springer Mountain in the State of Georgia to Maine’s Mount Katahdin, where you will be treated with remarkable and breath-taking views. After the hike, you even can spend time exploring Georgia as a whole, where you can enjoy the natural beauty of the area, highlighted by springs, gorges, and canyons. The fact is there are now many who have opted to invest in properties in rural areas and away from the large city, say for instance buying houses and apartments in LaGrange, where natural attractions are available at the edges of the state.
3 – Crater Lake
And since we’re talking about natural beauty in the U.S. that not many people have visited, then Crater Lake must be included in that list. It’s a huge lake with crystal clear waters that was formed within a collapsed and dormant volcano. The lake is found in Oregon, a state famous for its clear waters meant for discovery and recreation. And the most interesting part of this lake is the fact that no rivers, streams, or other bodies of water surrounds it.
