List of the most beautiful places in America, as ranked by beauty lovers, Americans, and avid travelers. When compared to other countries and continents, America is relatively new. It doesn’t have the thousands of years of recorded history and colonization that many foreign countries do. Therefore, there are still plenty of natural wonders that are available to be explored throughout the entire country.

In the United States, there was a political initiative in the early 1900s that ensured that many forested and wildlife areas were protected as national parks. The US has 59 national parks, many of which are among the most beautiful spots in the world, thanks in part to the National Parks Service.

National parks like Yellowstone and Yosemite are some of the most breathtaking spots in the US, and many contain famous nature sites and natural wonders like the Grand Canyon in Arizona and the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii. Other beautiful sites were man-made, such as the Capitol Building in Washington DC and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
