America's most iconic monuments, landscapes, or pop culture destinations? Here are our top 10 picks.
Highway 1, Calif.
One of the most meditative--and celebrated--drives you can take in the States is the 135-mile stretch of California's Pacific Highway 1 between San Luis Obispo and Monterey.
The French Quarter of New Orleans, which is bounded by the Mississippi River, Rampart Street, Canal, and Esplanade, is home to nightclubs lit up in neon, French colonial townhouses draped in ivy, Creole cottages built on stilts, and antebellum mansions whose balconies are laced with intricate ironwork.
Grand Canyon, Ariz.
Many American landmarks inspire people to think big, but few can match the scale and grandeur of the Grand Canyon. A mule ride along Bright Angel trail, shown here, emphasizes the timelessness of the canyon, a geological wonder more than a million years in the making.
