America is an enormous place, making it difficult to cover all of the unique destinations and landmarks. It can take years of exploring to get through a bucket list of American hotspots, so we’ve made it easier on you by listing some of the most unusual and unique places to visit.
Skagit Valley Tulip Fields, Washington
These tulip fields are as iconic as they are beautiful. Every year, over a million visitors come to see these beautiful tulip fields that spread over 300 acres, which puts them into our top of unique places to visit in America. Make sure you visit in Spring and check out the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival if you want the full experience here in this beautiful location.
International Banana Museum, California
It’s as ridiculous as it sounds. The International Banana Museum is a unique place that lets you experience the world’s largest collection of bananas related items. It’s an infamous location that is filled with whacky touches, so don’t miss out.
Grand Prismatic Spring, Wyoming
The prismatic spring seems like something that would have been edited with a computer program, but it’s real. There’s a lot of science behind the Grand Prismatic Spring, but for most visitors, it’s simply just a beautiful spring to look at with vibrant colors.
Dare County, North Carolina
Dare County is one of the most relaxing places in the whole of America. There are huge stretches of uncrowded beaches and there are plenty of unique attractions. Make sure you book a room in the center of it at Baymont Inn & Suites Kitty Hawk Outer Banks to get easy access to the entire Outer Banks. The best time to visit is during the offseason, so anytime between March to June and September to December.
Farnham Colossi, West Virginia
Want to see a collection of giant statues? Then look no further than the Farnham Colossi in West Virginia, where you’ll get to see plenty of towering roadside statues that were once a huge part of American road culture. It’s a strange place to visit, but it will give you an insight into a forgotten part of American culture.
Haiku Stairs of Oahu, Hawaii
Non-Americans that travel America often forget that Hawaii is part of the states, and that’s a shame because there are many beautiful locations to visit. The Haiku Stairs is just one location in Oahu that you have to visit if you’re in the area. Unfortunately, this site is no longer monitored by the authorities and is officially closed, so you will be hiking here at your own risk.
Horseshoe Bend, Arizona
Horseshoe Bend gets a fair amount of tourism due to how unique the area looks. You’ll be able to see the canyon via a boat, and you’ll also be able to plan a private air charter if you want an aerial view of this iconic Arizonan destination.
Northern Lights, Alaska
The Northern Lights can be seen from many different locations in the world, but if you’re going to tour America, you may as well stop off in Alaska to see it with your own eyes. Whether it’s Fairbanks, Anchorage or Brooks Range, you can see it from a number of different locations in Alaska, making it an easy journey.
