Top Ten Wonders of the USA

What do you all think are the top ten wonders people must see in the United States? This is similar to a "Seven Wonders of the World" list, but it is ten wonders just for sights within the United States.

The Top Ten

1 The Grand Canyon The Grand Canyon Grand Canyon National Park, in Arizona, is home to much of the immense Grand Canyon, with its layered bands of red rock revealing millions of years of geological history.

I need to come to the USA to see this! I'm stuck in Australia until I'm old enough to travel :P - Ninja_Potato123

11 Yellowstone National Park Yellowstone National Park

First ever national park. Legendary. - GhostBird

12 Mount McKinley Mount McKinley Mount McKinley (Denali) is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,310 feet above sea level. With a topographic prominence of 20,156 feet and a topographic isolation of 4,629 miles, Denali is the third most prominent and third most isolated peak on Earth, after Mount more.
13 The Statue of Liberty

Shouldn't that be "French" wonders?

Statue of liberty is good but was a gift from France

14 The Willis (Sears) Tower
15 Mauna Kea
16 The Hollywood Sign
17 The Empire State Building
18 Yosemite Valley

Don't get me wrong Grand Canyon and Yellowstone are beautiful but there is nothing like standing at Tunnel View and overlooking Yosemite Valley. It is a breathtaking and awe inspiring moment. In my opinion Yosemite is the most beautiful place in the United States and one of the most beautiful in the world.

19 The Mississippi River
20 Washington's Hoh Rainforest
21 Arlington National Cemetery Arlington National Cemetery

Arlington national cementry is famous because john.F. kennedy is buried here

22 Washington Monument
23 Boston Harbor
24 Mount Saint Helens
25 The Alamo
26 The Interstate System
27 Carlsbad Caverns
28 Great Smoky Mountain National Park
29 Jamestown, Virginia
30 St. Augustine, Florida
31 Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Pictured Rocks is a series of rock formationsthat stretches for quite a while. It's found in a remote area, and it's one of the natural beauties that should be called one of the wonders of the USA. - Turkeyasylum

32 Mackinac Bridge

It connects the two peninsulas of Michigan. At one point, it was the largest suspension bridge in the world, boasting approximately five miles of bridge. It can knock the Golden Gate Bridge out of the park in my opinion. - Turkeyasylum

My brother used to haul dynamite in a truck. They would close down the Mackinac bridge whenever he would cross it...

33 Monument Valley

The perfect landscape for some of the best Western films ever made! - higgsboson2142

34 Pearl Harbor
35 Kilauea
36 Mount Rushmore Mount Rushmore Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a massive sculpture carved into Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills region of South Dakota.
