Top 5 unique places to travel in the US

There are numerous interesting sites to visit in the United States. National and state parks, vibrant cities, and mountain resort towns are all must-see destinations in the United States. Whether you prefer extreme places to visit, such as the snow-capped mountains, rushing waterfalls, lush woodlands, or deserts, the United States offers several magnificent and bucket-list-worthy sites.

There is so much to see and do in the United States because it is such a vast country. Of course, most people visit world-famous landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Disneyland. However, consider visiting an uncommon location if you want a truly unique experience. Then, when your friends and family hear about your journey, they will be jealous and inspired to follow in your footsteps. The following are the five best unique places to visit in the United States.

  1. Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard in Vermont – Of course, you’ll also want to go to the Ben & Jerry’s Waterbury Factory. Still, this location, where dead and long-forgotten ice cream flavors are laid to rest, is too bizarre to pass up. After you’ve finished your scoop from the factory’s Scoop Shop, make your way behind the building to pay your respects to flavors that have passed on.
  2. Leavenworth in Washington – Leavenworth was formerly a bustling forestry town. When that took a turn for the worst, the community decided to use its lovely environment to transform it into a mini-Bavaria. As a result, it’s one of Washington’s most popular tourist spots, particularly among Seattle residents. Restaurants, taverns, breweries, cideries, and local retail businesses are housed in Bavarian-style architecture throughout the town.

Because of its location at the base of the Cascade Mountains and on the Wenatchee River, it is also a popular destination for outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, whitewater rafting, and moderate tube floating. Winter is supposed to be a memorable experience here with their “Village of Lights,” when the village is transformed with over 500,000 Christmas lights, live music, a visit from Santa Claus, and generally a blanketing of snow.

  1. Grand Prismatic Spring in Wyoming – This searing beauty is the largest hot spring in the United States and the third-largest in the world, trailing only New Zealand’s Frying Pan Lake and Dominica’s Boiling Lake. Colored bacteria in the water cause the hues of spring. Can you put your toe in the water? No, but the views from the boardwalks and nearby viewpoints will quickly convince you that Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is one of the top sites to visit in the United States.
  2. Austin in Texas – Austin, Texas, is the capital and fourth-most populated city of the Lone Star State. Austin is Texas’ most progressive metropolis and has long been known as “Hippie Haven.” Fans of flying animals should set aside an evening during the spring and summer to stand atop the Congress Avenue Bridge and watch the Mexican free-tailed bats assemble. It’s the most significant urban bat colony in North America and a hive of activity. While in Austin, visit the Cathedral of Junk, tour the city’s landmarks, and don’t miss out on a local culinary favorite: breakfast tacos—a must on any Austin agenda!
  3. Ausable Chasm in New York – Ausable Chasm is a true Western New York hidden gem. New York City prefers to keep all of New York’s glory to itself, but this location is about 5 hours northwest. It’s too difficult to undertake as a day excursion, but once you’re on the hiking trails, you’ll see why it’s so remarkable. This canyon, located on the opposite side of Lake Champlain, was formed by a naturally formed river from a waterfall. Like a miniature Niagara Falls! There are three separate routes within the chasm: tubing, rock climbing, and even lantern paths to navigate! Tours can be booked easily in the main building. You can also spend the night in the cabins located beyond the entryway; this elevates camping to an all-new level!
