There are many beautiful places to visit in America, but interesting historical and even patriotic thoughts might pop into your brain at these locations.

Known as a symbol of freedom towering over New York Harbor, information about The Statue of Liberty can be obtained at nps.gov. The view of this landmark is incredible even if just catching a glimpse from a plane window while in flight from New York.
Tours require a ferry to the statue which must be purchased from the National Parks Department. This landmark is a “must see” if you could only choose one place to visit before you die. Freedom rings loud in your heart at this America the beautiful place.
California is known for its golden mountains, and seeing that plus the Golden Gate Bridge will fill your eyes with gold. Both ends of this bridge touch Golden Gate National Parks.

The Space Needle
Seattle has one of the grandest sparkling sea views available anywhere. The view from the top of the well known Space Needle can be seen by buying a ticket for observation or dinning at the restaurant at the top. More information can be found about this shining seas view at spaceneedle.com.
The Space needle was built in 1962 for the World’s Fair. During that time this structure was a modern marvel, and the World’s Fair was a place to show off to the world great things to come in the future. I remember as a child our family visited this World’s Fair and I was in awe of the Space Needle. This monument put Seattle on the map as a great place to visit.
The shining sea views found in the clear, cool waters of Alaska are best experienced on a cruise to that state. Taking a round trip to Alaska from Seattle gives spectacular scenery of both the ocean and inside passage to Alaska. This is the most exciting yet relaxing cruise I have ever taken.
One way cruises can be taken to Alaska from Seattle or Vancouver that go to Anchorage. Seeing blue chunks of ice in the water while cruising the inside passage or the more open waters on the one way cruises will not disappoint.
