    Great list! I live in Oregon and it’s a diverse and beautiful state. Haven’t been to Oneonta Falls, but I’d like to check it out! I guess you have to hike up the stream channel to get to it! I have been to the Napali Coast on Kauai, Bryce Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and Thors Well and they all are great on the list! I’d like to check the others out, too! I would add two things in Zion National Park to the list: Angel’s Flight trail and also a hike up the Narrows if weather permits. Truly gorgeous! I’m looking forward to seeing what others chime in with because I’m sure there are some awesome places in the Northeast, Rocky Mountains, and the Sierra Nevada! 🙂

    • Vava

      Actually, the trail in Zion NP might be called Angel’s Landing. I always get it mixed up.

      Cool! Have you got any photos from your visit to Bryce Canyon?

  • jack james

    You are right these are most magnificent places of USA that are worth seeing attractions of this region. Recently I had a lots of fun during my oneonta gorge hike and now I want to go to Mendenhall Glacier Cave in Alaska to see the breathtaking sights of this attractive spot. I must say these are awesome photographs of these destinations to grab the tourists attention.

  • Bibiana

    Your shared attractions list is really amazing and awesome! I love to explore this country again and again during my traveling life because of its incredible destinations. I have been visited the Watkins Glen State Park during my new york to orlando tours. It is one of the prettiest parks of this region as well as of the whole country. This destination offers a wide range of amazing and attractive spots. I like this park due to its beautiful waterfalls.

    • HandLuggageOnly

      Glen State Park sounds amazing! We’ll have to check it out! 🙂
