Framed by two oceans, bisected by the great Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains, and home to such breathtaking sites as the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls, the United States has natural attractions in abundance. You can find gorgeous natural attractions in all 50 states and U.S. territories, thanks to State and National Parks systems. But of course, some natural wonders in the USA are really worth traveling for.

On the following pages are some of the most lauded natural attractions in the United States. Don't see your favorite? Indeed, there are too many of these sights to list. You may also want to check out USA UNESCO Sites, which includes more than a dozen National Parks and/or natural wonders that have been hailed by UNESCO as worthy of preservation. There may be some overlap with this and the UNESCO list, e.g. the Grand Canyon.
