It doesn’t matter where you are or where you want to go; you can find countless beautiful places to visit around the globe. If you want to travel internationally, you can visit Italy, Chile, and Greece, or you can travel within the country to places like South Carolina, Washington, and Colorado. The point is, when it comes to beautiful travel destinations around the globe, you have a lot to choose from.
If you plan a vacation and want to ensure you have the best experience possible, you may want some ideas. While taking a Europe cruise is a great option to see many places on one vacation, there are some must-see destinations to keep in mind.
Maroon Bells, U.S.
Found just 10 miles away from Aspen (which is in Colorado), the Maroon Bells are located in the Elk Mountains. They are two, 14K foot high peaks that attract visitors from all over. The peaks are reflected in the crystal-clear Maroon Lake and found nestled in a unique glacial valley. These are considered some of the most beautiful parts of the Rocky Mountains and one of the most photographed areas in the entire U.S.
Even better, you can visit throughout the year and see the breathtaking beauty they offer. However, if you want to see something truly unique, visit in the fall when there is a rainbow of changing colors. You won’t be disappointed with the experience you have here.
Grand Canyon, U.S.
You have likely heard of the Grand Canyon; however, it should be on your must-see list if you have never visited it. The canyon is up to one mile deep and 18-miles wide. It is a huge gorge that has been cut and carved out by the mighty Colorado River for over 5,000 years.
The sheer size of this place is amazing and, while you can only see a small portion of it from the best vantage point, you can book a helicopter tour, which will help you see much more of this nature-made wonder.
Along with the history of how the Grand Canyon was formed, you can also see many life growing on the sides. Take some time to tour the trails of the northern rim, where things aren’t as crowded. Usually, people will limit their visit to the southern rim, but you can find countless locations to enjoy the canyon’s beauty.
Blue Lagoon, Iceland
The Blue Lagoon in Iceland is a unique geothermal spa that is found between the Keflavik and Reykjavik International Airport. It is right in the heart of a lava field that is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula. While the entire country of Iceland is famous for all the amazing landscapes, the Blue Lagoon definitely stands out from some of the other locations. The milky white water of this area is a bizarre sight and one you should see in person to fully appreciate.
The Blue Lagoon is man-made and fed by the Svartsengi, a geothermal power plant located nearby. The water that is in the spa has several jobs to do before it is used for relaxation and beauty. The superheated water is extracted from a nearby lava flow and then used for running turbines that generate electricity. Once it moves through the turbines, the steam and hot water move through a heat exchanger, which provides hot water for the city water heating system.
At this point, the water is sent to the lagoon and then used for recreational and medicinal purposes. It is full of sulfur, silica, and all types of other minerals, making it a great place to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.
