Monument Valley - Iconic Tourist Attraction

What to do and what to see:

Iconic red sandstone buttes rise to soaring heights in the Navajo Nation’s Monument Valley Park, an area on the border of Arizona and Utah comprised of more than 91,000 acres of rugged beauty. Up to 1000 feet (300m) tall, each butte is uniquely formed by millions of years of erosion, and the mesas and windswept vistas provide a perfect backdrop for nature photography. The Valley of the Rocks can be viewed via hot air balloon or small airplane ride, or first-hand from a Jeep tour offered by local Navajo residents. Horseback riding, hiking, camping, off-road ATV tours are also offered locally, but rock-climbing is not permitted. For a uniquely Southwest adventure with awe-inspiring sights, take a trip to the desert and enjoy Monument Valley.

Seattle - List of major sights in Seattle, Washington, US

What to do and what to see:

More than nine million visitors make their way to “The Emerald City” of Seattle, Washington every year, and the world-class West coast locale mixed with a thriving urban setting result in a top travel destination. The city has coined the phrase “metronatural” to describe itself, boasting a fine balance between a fast-paced metropolis and the area’s rich natural beauty. Start with a visit to Pike Place Market, the famous century-old farmers market known for the fishmongers and their “flying fish” antics.

Continue on to the landmark Space Needle (cir. 1962), in which a super-fast elevator ride rockets up 605 feet (184 meters) to an observation deck, gift shop and the revolving SkyCity restaurant. Hop aboard a ferry ride to the varied attractions in Puget Sound, or commandeer a motorized amphibious WWII vehicle for a “Duck Ride” tour on both land and sea. For other water-themed attractions, take in the Seattle Aquarium and the bustling Seattle Waterfront commerce area. The culture of Seattle is equated with the alternative music scene, with the bands Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains (to name a few) calling the city home.

Plenty of music, theater and performing fine arts venues are located in the city, and visitors will not be left wanting for shopping, dining and wine-tasting options. Extreme adventures in Seattle include paintball, paragliding, skydiving, indoor climbing and BMX riding, and professional sports teams include the Mariners (MLB), the Seahawks (NFL) and the Sounders (MLS). Dubbed by some as the “fittest city in the United States,” Seattle is home to a myriad of hiking, biking, walking and other outdoor activity venues, and public transit systems make it easy for visitors to get around. With modern amenities and Mother Nature’s charm, Seattle is a top pick among travelers around the world.


West Virginia White Water Rafting, Best white water on East coast in West Virginia, US

What to do and what to see:

People who first came to raft for fun own most of the companies in this area; they liked it so much that they never left. Together with the next generation, they turned West Virginia into a place where you can have the greatest recreation adventures in the Eastern US. There is a large spectrum of river experiences from mild to wild, and everything in between. You can have historic trips and visits to mining ghost towns, fish-and-float tours and adventure rides. River trips can be combined with cycling or rock climbing. Still the most challenging adventure is on the river. You can choose from half-day trips to full day trips or overnight to multi-day adventures. You can have the trip photographed or videotaped. The season runs from April through October. Safety innovations and raft improvements were developed to make your experience safer but rich in thrills. Connoisseurs say that every trip down the river is different, so you will have to pay attention to your guides and learn how the river behaves at different levels of depth. Rafting can be a peaceful float trip when you have time to appreciate the spectacular scenery, or a challenging adventure to stir your adrenaline. You can rent wetsuits and all the equipment you need will be provided by the outfitters.

West Virginia Caving - Place for outdoor and extreme activities in West Virginia, US

What to do and what to see:

More than 500 caves have been explored in West Virginia, while many more are still to be discovered. Thomas Jefferson has explored Organ Cave and religious services were held in it during the Civil War. There are guided tours through the cathedral-like passages of this cave. Along with the wonderful sights of stalactites and stalagmites, you can explore the saltpeter mine that was used by Confederate soldiers to gather mineral used to make gunpowder. You can see how the walls and floors of the cave still sparkle with this mineral. For the more adventurous, there are extended exploring expeditions where you can challenge yourself. Lost World Caverns can be explored on your own. In the northern region, Seneca and Smoke Hole can be explored all year round. Smoke Hole contains the famous Room of Million Stalactites; it has the second highest ceiling of all the caverns in eastern US, and the world’s largest ribbon stalactite. Scott Hollow Cave is explored along the Mystic River, and has been proven to be a complex cave system that awaits to be fully discovered. Guided tours are provided for commercial caverns but experts in the field may explore the uncharted labyrinth beyond. Picnic areas and sometimes restaurants are available to make you feel comfortable during caving expeditions.

Intrepid USS Liner - Aircraft carrier museum in New York, US

What to do and what to see:

The aircraft carrier USS Intrepid is one of the most unusual museums and inspiring adventures one may find in New York.

The Intrepid is a real aircraft carrier and the home for the new Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum complex. Built in 1943, the carrier and her crew served tours of duty spanning World War II through Vietnam, making seven trips around the globe and surviving five kamikaze attacks, several bomb attacks and one torpedo strike. During her active duty she also served as a NASA astronaut recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. In 2006, Intrepid was ordered to go "on live" for some much-needed repairs and restoration and has now returned to her brand new berth at the park-like Pier 86.

During the visit to the museum complex, visitors may expect to see the USS Intrepid herself, walk on her flight deck full of authentically restored Navy aircraft, visit the Navigation Bridge and stand over real chart tables, radar consoles and communications equipment. So too will visitors have a chance to discover the crew life and service areas of the aircraft carrier. In addition, there is a real British Airways Concorde supersonic airliner, which introduces its visitors to the history of ultrasonic passenger flight. Visitors can also visit the USS Growler missile submarine to learn about the Navy's underwater defensive capability. For inquisitive ones there are dedicated Sea, Air and Space Interactive Exploratoreums, The Story of Intrepid Movie and Multimedia Kamikaze Experience.

Visiting the Intrepid is a great adventure for adults, while it is an absolutely unforgettable experience for children.

Washington Square - Must See at New York, US

What to do and what to see:

Washington Square historically has been closely connected to the City's life for the almost two centuries.

The plot in the Greenwich Village had been used as everything from a burial ground to a public-execution space prior to becoming a park in 1827. For the Centennial of Washington's inauguration as President of the United States a wooden Memorial Arch was constructed on the Square. Then the Arch was rebuilt in marble in 1895 and completed with two figures of Washington as general and president around 1919. Since then the Arch has been standing without change for almost a century for now. The Square itself has become a famous place for the public recreation. Since World War II the place was known as a hot spot for artists, folksingers, students and all kinds of bohemian people.

In the 1961 it was the very place of so called "Beatnik Riot", when nearly 500 musicians and supporters marched against the city government’s restrictions on using public facilities for performing. The march was ended by police force, but the era of beatniks had begun. In the 80's the place got a bad name for the drug dealers, but the situation was dramatically improved in 90's. Today, the square continues to be an important part of modern city life.

After two major renovations of the park and fountain, Washington Square is a nice place to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon watching the bohemian style of life, playing chess with fellow chess lovers, watching street performances and enjoying amateur music groups.
