The 19 Most Beautiful Places In The World Are Hidden In America
Kilauea Volcano and Thurston Lava Tube at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Kilauea has been spewing lava without stop since 1983 in what is one of the longest-lived volcanic eruptions of modern times. Below it snakes a complex cave network that was carved from a river of lava 500 years ago.
Salt Lake Temple and Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah
Like at other Latter-day Saints temples, you'll need to get baptized and meet with a bishop before you go inside. Once you do, 10 acres of one of Brigham Young's first churches are yours to explore.
Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado
We think the indigenous Ute tribe is responsible for the cryptic etchings we've found on this park's red rock walls. We've also found carefully-built fire rings from 3,000 years ago.
Gila Cliff Dwellings in Catron, New Mexico
Scholars are fairly certain these intricate caverns were home to American Indian families over 700 years ago. From them, we've unearthed a mummified infant whom researchers call Zeke.
Windsor Ruins in Claiborne County, Mississippi
A wealthy landowner used slave labor to build this expansive plantation house in the 1800s. He died a few weeks after moving in, and a freak fire later burned down the building. All that remain are 23 crumbling, solitary columns.
Skagit Valley tulip fields in Mount Vernon, Washington
You don't have to schlep to Amsterdam for fields that burst into bloom-- there's more serenity and space at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, which locals celebrate each April.
Gillette Castle State Park in East Haddam, Connecticut
This estate belonged to actor William Gillette, famous for portraying Sherlock Holmes onstage in the 1900s. Gillette named his cobblestoned castle Seventh Sister and installed a series of hidden mirrors to monitor guests at all times.
