These Places Are So Surreal, You Won't Believe They Are In Your Own Backyard. I Was Amazed.

It's the New Year, which means most people have a whole new set of vacation days to plan out. The opportunities are endless for where you could go. Before you get your sights set on somewhere far-fetched like Italy, Thailand, or Australia, consider something a little... closer to home. You won't believe what's right in your own backyard.

Sure, it's fun to dream about the possibilities of world travel, going to remote tropical destinations in other countries, and seeing wilderness untouched by civilization. But international travel is so expensive that it's cost-prohibitive for most of us. But what about traveling in the United States? Here are 30 gorgeous natural wonders that are right here in the good old USA.
