Ten best places in USA

Here is my list of TOP TEN (not in any order ;)) from my US Trip

In the East Coast
1) New York City

Undoubtedly the big apple city has this energy, which is unmatched. Seeing Manhattan view from the Empire State Building, we were left with no words but oh wow!

2) Niagara Falls

What gave Niagara Falls the magical feel was the touch of autumn. It was unreal - leaves flowing as colorful flowers into the falls!

3) South Beach at Miami

Its not simply that Miami beaches are called one of the best in the world, you have to see it to believe the blue!

4) Driving by Atlantic Coast

Drive from Miami to Key West (in Florida) - A whole day driving by the Atlantic coast. Crossing seven miles bridge which connects over 1,700 islands of Florida and when you stop for a view you are literally in the middle of ocean!

5) Sunset cruise around the Key West island

Surreal feeling of pink & blue sky made me want to fly away with the sunset!

In the West Coast
6) Grand Canyon

Physically we were exhausted (jet lag, long drives, change in food) yet the moment we got down to see this canyon, we felt some energy within us. The sheer size and depth evoked curiosity and excitement. It was almost breathtaking to stand by the edge!

7) October sun rise at Yosemite National Park

On cold wintry morning (with temperatures at 5-6 degrees) near Silver Lake in Yosemite National Park, we were waiting for sunrise. Seeing yellow leaves turn gold with rays of morning light. That was magical!

8) Driving by Pacific Coast

Drive from San Jose to Los Angles on Highway California State Route 1 (It's known for running along some of the most beautiful coastlines in the USA). A whole day of beautiful blue ocean sights. Driving along the curvy, twisted roads on the cliff along the Pacific coast. The views from these cliffs of the ocean are simply stunning!

9) Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco

The bridge seems to just perfectly fit and complete the landscape of San Francisco. Walk on bridge with spectacular views of the city and the ocean, just left us speechless!

10) Pigeon Point Lighthouse in California

There are many 'not so' famous hidden gems, one evening driving around, we found the Pigeon Point Lighthouse ... perfect setting for a sunset!
