Best places to visit in the United States

This is  one of Niagara Falls waterfalls called “Horseshoe Falls” and it  is definitely one of the top places to visit in the United States. Horseshoe Falls is connected to two  other water falls and they are called “American Falls” and “Bridal Veil Falls”.  Horseshoe Falls is the biggest waterfall out of these three and is the  most powerful waterfall in North America. (Also, Horseshoe Falls got it’s name because the shape of the falls are shaped like a horseshoe.)  American Falls is the second largest waterfall out of these three and then Bridal Veil Falls is the smallest. Also, American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls are located on the American side of Luna Island. Horseshoe Falls is located on the Canadian side of Goat Island. The Niagara Falls can produce more than four million kilowatts of electricity and the electricity is shared between the United States and Canada. They are all amazingly beautiful natural creations on earth.

The Statue of Liberty is definitely a must see if you have never visited it before. The Lady Liberty statue stands 305 ft. and 1 in. tall (from base to torch) and she is a special symbol of freedom and democracy. The young french sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi is the guy that built the statue. Did you know that Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi modeled the statues face after his mother, Augusta Charlotte Beysser. This statue of Lady Liberty is one of the most amazing monuments in the United States. This is not only a statue but it is also a great part of the world’s history and it is definitely a must see. My family and I went to visit back in 2006 and it was the best experience that we ever had.

This is the Grand Canyon and it is the most amazing thing in the world. It is a step-sided canyon carved by the Colorado river in the state of Arizona. This beauty is about 4 to 6 million years old. It is 277 miles long, up to eighteen miles wide and has a depth of 6,000 ft. The Grand Canyon is a very beautiful piece of scenery; It is a very colorful landscape with beautiful ancient rocks that are preserved in the canyon walls.  These rock layers have a lot of earlier geologic history of the North American continent. This is definitely another great place to visit, it’s such a magnificent place in the world and has so much amazing history behind it.

Yes, you guessed right. This little piece of heaven is called the Bahamas. The Bahamas is an island country consisting of more than 700 islands, cays, and islets in the Atlantic ocean. It also stretches over 258,998 square km in the western Atlantic ocean. The name “Bahamas” comes from the spanish, “baja mar” which means “shallow sea”. This spot looks like a great place to just sit back and relax with the wonderful atmosphere and the beautiful scenery. Just imagine yourself sitting in this beautiful crystal clear water on a nice hot summer day. How relaxing would that be?

This is the Carlsbad Cavern in New Mexico and it is another great place for you to visit. This amazing cavern is one of over 300 limestone caves in a fossil reef laid down by an inland sea 250 to 280 million years ago. The temperature stays at or around 56 Degrees all year long so it stays pretty cool down in this awesome underground cave. The Carlsbad Cavern has a large cave chamber called the “Big Room”. This is a natural chamber that is 4,000 ft. long, 625 ft. wide and 225 ft. high. The Carlsbad cavern is the most famous cavern in the world. They say the best time of the year to visit is in the spring or fall.
