Why We Love It: Texas is home to many beautiful scenes, especially the Hamilton Pool, which is also known to show different colors within the waters if you look closely and during certain times of the day. However, this isn’t even the most fascinating part of the pool.
What’s really interesting is the history of how the Hamilton Pool came to be. The story goes that it developed after an underground river collapsed thousands of years ago. If you want to see this historical landmark yourself, simply head 30 miles west of Austin.
Why We Love It: South Carolina is not the only state where you can find a beautiful lighthouse. You can also travel north and head to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in North Carolina. One reason this building makes the list is that it’s the tallest brick lighthouse in the world.
That’s right. We’re not just talking about the United States now – we’re talking about the world. This makes it a must-see on this list! Another reason is its unique black and white spiral feature. You definitely can’t skip this place.
Why We Love It: If you love history, you’ll want to make sure you mark Harpers Ferry in West Virginia down on your destination list – and then book your tickets to go. This city is known as the most beautiful historic town in the United States.
In fact, this town has shown its beauty for centuries. Back in the late 1700s, Founding Father Thomas Jefferson visited the city and stated that “perhaps one of the most stupendous scenes in nature” was where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet.
