The United States is full of highly popular travel destinations: New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., etc., But the lesser-known travel destinations don’t have any less to offer and, in fact, you may even enjoy them more as they won’t be teeming with as many tourists. Here are three you should check out.
Taos Pueblo — New Mexico
Taos Pueblo in New Mexico is both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to a Native American community that has been there for over one thousand years. Visiting here is all about seeing how history informs the present day—plus you can get some really delicious local food.
Crestone — Colorado
If you’re a spiritual person, you may feel called to make a pilgrimage to Crestone, Colorado, a mountain city known for being home to a Hindu temple, a zen center, several Christian churches, and multiple Tibetan centers, as well as clothing-optional hot springs and nature sanctuary. Come to relax, transform, or see the light – whatever your pleasure.
The Wave — Arizona
This one is for the people out there who like to marvel at the wonders of the natural world. You won’t even believe The Wave when you see it with your very own eyes. It’s one of those natural sandstone formations that look photoshopped, even in person—but it’s totally real. You really have to see it for yourself.
