There are many reasons people come to the USA. The US is all about diversity. From its teeming cities and world-famous national parks to its glaciers and sand dunes, there is plenty to see. Here are 60 places you won’t believe are in the US.

1. Alvord Desert, Oregon

This stunning mountain-fringed landscape reminiscent of the Atacama Desert in Chile is in the Pacific Northwest. It covers an area of five by 10 miles and includes multiple natural springs.

2. Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve, Idaho

This lesser-known preserve is more than 1,500 years old. It is a volcanic landscape highlighted by caves, cinder cones, craters, and lava fields.

3. Supai, Arizona

This secluded village is in the Grand Canyon. The local Havasupai Tribe has resided here since approximately AD 1300. The eight-mile hike required to reach it helps keep it from becoming touristy.

  2. Hi!
    My paternal grandfather was a strong believer in seeing your own country too. Thank you for your comment and thanks for reading my stuff!

  3. You’re absolutely right. I too am a Navy girl, BOTH my parents were in the Navy. Met in the Navy…we traveled my whole life, I still have wanderlust. America is amazing, don’t need to go out of the country for adventures and beautiful sights. It’s all right here…❤

  4. Don’t get me wrong. I have been to other countries and confess to loving the UK. Still, back in my grandfather’s time especially, I think he had a point.
    I see nothing wrong with exploring the beauty of your homeland. How else do you learn what to recommend to visitors from other countries, right? There are places in the US I would never have thought to suggest to people from other nations had I not been there myself! Thanks for your comment and for reading my stuff!

  5. Planning to visit California for the summer…..I will sure check out the Pfeiffer beach…look picturesque.

  6. You can definitely see your enthusiasm within the paintings you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. Always go after your heart.
