10 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.

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.

9. Devil's Tower

The devil's tower appears to the spectators as a large rock coming out of nowhere. What makes it so unusual is its practically flat surface and the singular vertical grooves on its side, so regular that the natives saw in them the scratches caused by a bear's paws.

Looking at it, it seems like it has always been there and apparently it doesn't seem possible to give an explanation as to how it was formed. After all, there is nothing around! In reality, there is an explanation and it is science that gives it to us. Before discovering it, look for it yourself by stopping to think about it for a minute.

Geologists have been studying it since the late 1800s and continue to research the details of its formation today. However, much of the Tower's geological history has been outlined.

About 60 million years ago, a column of molten magma was pushed through the overlying sedimentary rocks and cooled while still underground. As it cooled, it underwent a contraction which decreased its volume, fracturing it into several columns.

Over the course of millions of years, erosion did the rest, sweeping away the more friable layers of sedimentary rock, causing the devil's tower to emerge.

10. Stone Mountain State Park

The park is pretty and has a cute covered bridge and some other cool stuff but the dominant feature of the park is Stone Mountain. The mountain is a big lump of magma that slowly seeped out of the ground about 350 million years ago and solidified into granite and a few other igneous rocks thrown in for good measure.

Stone Mountain is technically know as a Pluton and the word comes from Pluto, the god of the underworld. It’s a thousand feet high and over five miles around at it’s base and just kind of sits there all my itself. It looks like one of those things that just isn’t suppose to be there.

It is just so impressive because it looks so different from anything else. The mountain looks like a enormous zit that came oozing out of the ground and that’s a good as description as any. You can take a tram to the top or better yet hike up the steep and rocky trial. There’s a little building at the top explaining the geological features and selling t-shirts and other trinkets.
