The most beautiful sunsets in the USA: TOP 10 places
Grand Canyon, Arizona
Watching the setting sun fancifully paint the stony slopes of the Grand Canyon red or purple, best from the Hopi Point. It is easy to get to by bus or, if you want to take a little walk, walk from the nearby Powell Point.
Florida Keys Archipelago, Florida
Florida is not in vain called the solar state. The best place to watch the sunset is the islands of the Florida Keys archipelago. Almost every evening, both locals and tourists gather at Mallory Square in the small town of Key West to watch the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico.
Santa Monica California
One of the most beautiful sunsets on the West Coast can be seen on the Santa Monica pier . Carousels, live music and street performers will not let you get bored while waiting. And do not rush to leave immediately after sunset – be sure to admire the Ferris wheel illuminated by thousands of bulbs!
Haleakala Volcano, Hawaii
Haleakala from Hawaiian means “house of the sun.” It is hard to imagine a clue more obvious than this. The volcano occupies most of the island of Maui. Settled among ground-based telescopes and fluffy clouds, you can wait until sunset with rapture.
Brooklyn Bridge, New York
Skyscrapers, the Statue of Liberty and the waters of the East River Strait in the rays of the setting sun are well observed from the Brooklyn Bridge. Every few meters you have a new, spectacular view of New York , which gradually begins to sparkle with hundreds of night lights.
Watching the sunset is best to go northwest of Tucson, to the Saguaro National Park, among the desert landscapes overgrown with cacti. Until then, you can pass the time in the city, getting acquainted with the ancient Spanish architecture and museums.
Denali National Park, Alaska
Located in the heart of Alaska, the Denali Nature Reserve attracts over a million tourists every year. At sunset, you can watch an amazing play of light on snow-capped mountain peaks. For particularly spectacular views, head to Mount McKinley.
Arches National Park, Utah
In a national park near the town of Moab, there are more than 2,000 natural arches formed from sandstone. At sunset, you can observe all shades of red and brown and “catch” the setting sun in one of the arches.
Miami literally sparkles in the sunset rays. It is best to admire this spectacle from special pleasure boats that run all year round. The sun is reflected in the water surface and glass of skyscrapers, and then hides behind the horizon.
Yosemite National Park, California
One of the most beautiful national parks in the USA, located on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada ridge, impresses not only with landscapes, but also with sunsets. Watching this splendor is best at the top of the sheer granite cliff Half Dome. The sun illuminates the trunks of old trees, glides along the mountain peaks and slowly hides behind the horizon.
