9 Most Famous Places to Visit in USA

America can be a relatively young nation, but it has a diverse and complex history. Nature and progress coexist to perfection in United States. And so much so that this symbiosis has resulted in spectacular American landmarks and monuments erected by man, a symbol of unbridled progress. From trees and landscapes built in the last century to thousands of years old mythological monuments, there are wonderful places for tourists to visit in America.

Great places to visit in USA, including the prominent ones, are Washington DC, Boston, and New York.

The gorgeous and mysterious beaches of the Northwest like Oregon and Washington are like nothing else on earth. Even the East Coast has a couple of worthy spots, albeit with much smaller waves like Siasconset in Massachusetts and North Carolina’s Ocracoke. White sand, black sand, pink sand, normal sand, you’ll can literally find it all in America!

April can be nice but it can also snow 3 feet in one day. Even if it does not snow it will probably not be green but will be bleak with dead tree, cold weather, and no green grass. States like Massachusetts and places like New York City will have this problem the first 2 weeks of April for sure. Popular northern states like New York and Massachusetts typically clear up near the end of the month. So for your visit you need to start in the southern United States and then possibly work your way north.

2. Franklin, Tennessee


There you can make a short stop in Franklin. Here take a break from the big cities to visit a small town in the south. Franklin is only about 20 miles from Nashville, but here the pace of life is definitely much slower. Before parking your rental car near the picturesque main street, where the boutiques and restaurants of the town are located, drive around and look at the beautiful Victorian houses in the area.

Franklin is perhaps most famous for being the site where in 1864 the Battle of Franklin was fought during the Civil War. The Carter House and Carnton Plantation has remains of that battle and contain original furniture of the time and a cemetery. Franklin is a place worth visiting, especially to slow down and drive with the windows open or the top down while savoring the true South.

Head north one more time on I-65, and in 30 minutes you'll reach Nashville, the music mecca.

3. Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area


Drive the Columbia River Gorge and stop for a good long stroll at every feature including Crown Point, the Bonneville dam hatchery and fish ladder, and every waterfall, then getting a late lunch. For a full day’s visit, the Mt Hood scenic loop includes these and more.

4. Chattanooga, Tennessee


In addition to being a fun word to say, Chattanooga is a city located in a beautiful place at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. Here you will find many outdoor activities, which could be welcome at the end of an intense road trip. Due to the location of the city on the Tennessee River, it is not even necessary to leave the Chattanooga boundaries to spend some quiet time outdoors.

Among things to do in Chattanooga, relax in Ross's Landing, an urban park by the river. Although it is now an open-air oasis, it is in the place where the Cherokee people lived.

5. Lookout Mountain, Tennessee


The Lookout Mountain itself is worth a visit, either for its trails or its history as the site of a famous battle of the American Civil War. And if you're not afraid of heights, a ride on the Lookout Mountain slanting train that climbs up the side of the mountain will take you to historic places and trails. Do you still want more outdoor activities? Drive to Rock City, which is a popular site due to its panoramic views over seven states.

Drive to Ruby Falls, just southwest of downtown Chattanooga. The underground waterfall is 145 feet high and is located inside a cave in the Lookout Mountain. Ruby Falls in Chattanooga is a stunning 145-foot waterfall. It is unique because it is situated a staggering 1,100 feet below the surface of the earth under Lookout Mountain.

That makes it the deepest waterfall that you can actually visit in the United States, making it one of those natural attractions that you will never forget.

After Chattanooga, you find yourself in the final stretch of a road trip that has taken you from Atlanta to Nashville.

6. Burgess Falls State Park, Tennessee


Burgess Falls State Park is home to some of Tennessee's prettiest views and is a popular place to picnic. Of particular note are the powerful waterfalls that are dotted around the grounds of the park. This is why if you visit, you should certainly take a trip along the River Trail/Road Loop to take full advantage of them. If you are a keen fisher, you won't be disappointed by the opportunities there either!

7. Gatlinburg, Tennessee


Located at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains this underground lake measures a staggering (almost) five acres, making it the biggest lake of its kind in the USA.

9. Jackson, Tennessee


Reelfoot Lake in Samburg is the only considerable natural lake in Tennessee and what a lake it is! It was formed by a number of earthquakes that took place along the Madrid fault in the early 19th century, which made the Mississippi River flow backward and fill up empty land in Tennessee. It is home to a number of beautiful bald cypress trees, bald eagles and lots of excellent fishing opportunities.
