America has plenty of great things to see, but there are some sights out there that once you see you will never forget. They’ll stand out in your memory for the rest of your life and when you see them on TV shows or movies you’ll come right back to the time when you saw them.
These memorable sights were chosen by the number of people that say they will never forget them, and how iconic they are to American culture. Be sure to spend your next RV trip heading to one of them, you won’t regret it!
Grand Canyon, Grand Canyon National Park
The Grand Canyon lives up to its name and once you see it you’ll stand back in awe. Not only is it grand in size, but also in scale, it just keeps going and going as far as the eye can see. Whether you see it from an airplane on a cross-country flight, or take a tour of it on the back of a donkey, its massive size will leave a lasting impression on you.
Statue of Liberty, New York City
The Statue of Liberty has been a beacon for weary travelers for many generations and when you get a chance to see it it almost looks photoshopped because of the way it looks exactly like it does in photos and videos. Taking a trip to Liberty Island is a must so you can get an up-close view, and if you choose you can even go inside and up to her head.
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
Fans of the TV show Full House will recognize this bridge especially, but it is also one of the most iconic bridges in the world. If you are in San Francisco be sure to schedule a drive over the bridge. A trip to Muir Woods is highly recommended and you have to take the Golden Gate to it if you are coming from the city.
Bellagio Fountains, Las Vegas
Take a trip to Las Vegas and stop in front of the Bellagio Casino and Hotel to witness the Bellagio Fountains firsthand. The water dances to choreographed musical numbers and always provides a magical moment right on the Las Vegas Strip. The next time you see Ocean’s 11 you’ll have a stronger connection because you will know exactly what it feels like to watch the fountains with a big grin on your face.
Old Faithful, Yellowstone National Park
Many of us learned about Old Faithful in grade school, and there’s just something about seeing it in person that makes it come alive. It is interesting to think that day after day and year after year the geyser shoots off at regular intervals. The best part is that just about everything at Yellowstone National Park is unforgettable, so it’s definitely worth the trip.
Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
When you’re walking down Main Street and see Cinderella’s castle in Walt Disney World you will have that surreal moment that only comes when you are seeing something you don’t see every day. It is hard not to get carried away by all the whimsy and a day spent at Walt Disney World usually ranks in the “I’m going to remember that for the rest of my life!” column.
The White House, Washington DC
No matter who is in the White House and what your feelings are about them, you just can’t beat a selfie in front of the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue. It is synonymous with the United States government and the USA in general and if you can line up a tour it is something that everyone in the family will remember for a long time to come.
