    Thank you for the highly informative list of off beaten track places in the US. The Devils tower is aptly named as it looks a bit scary! I would love to visit some of them on my next visit to the States!

    Love the idea for this post! I’d love to go to Hamilton Pool Reserve someday – I’ve heard a lot of good things about it! And it looks stunning

    You have done a good job by compiling a list of all these places. These places are quite underrated and I think they will get more tourists now, thanks to your blog.

    Honestly, I didn’t know about most of them. That TX one is just breath-taking! I know about Block Island and hope to visit, not because of the beaches (didn’t even know they existed there lol), but because of the wind farms. Also, I knew about Nevada and high geothermal activity. I once did research at work on geothermal feasibility in NYS and had to read a lot about the SW and the West Coast. Fascinating! Pinning this!

      I’m glad you could get some travel inspiration here Kemi. The US has so many places which are vastly underrated. I think I ought to make a Part 2 😀

    I can’t believe what I see – the US is indeed incredibly beautiful and not to be missed for all nature-lovers – I’m one of them and Hamilton Pool Preserve looks like my paradise 🙂 I wonder if the water is really so turquoise blue?

      Thank you for your comment, Anna! The US is indeed an amazing country to visit, especially if you get off-the-beaten-track! And yes, the Hamilton Pool Preserve does look like that in real life ;). It’s an absolutely stunning place.

    Our family really wants to get to Devils Tower. It has been on our daughter’s bucket list for a couple of years. Garden of the Gods is an amazing place to visit. I could walk the trails of the park for days on end. Mt. Hood is also such an amazing location and so pristine.

    So much beautiful outdoors in the US! Whenever I am there for work, it’s always a bad time to add extra time to look around – and for me, it’s not worth it to look around the cities. It would be things like this that I would do it for. I mean the Devil’s Tower – if it were in Asia somewhere, it would be heaving with tourists!

      Absolutely Teja! Life in the US revolves around the cities and people rarely go off-the-beaten-track, which is where you’ll find the most amazing things. Thank you for the comment 🙂

    Wow! All these places look so magical and surreal. The hypnotic beauty of these vistas is a sight to behold. I didn’t know there are so many beautiful places in the United States. My favourite ones would be Hamilton Pool Preserve and Apostle Islands. I’m unable to take my eyes off them. Thanks for sharing these amazing photographs and introducing me to a magical world. 🙂

    Cool collection of hidden gems! A few of them I already had a chance to visit, others I know exist but didn´t have the right timing or not enough time at all to go there, like Hamilton Pool, which was closed when I went there due to the limited amount of people who can visit during a day.

      Thank you for your comment, Pia. You’re lucky! Most people I met haven’t visited most of these places 😀 and yeah, such a pity for the Hamilton Pool. It’s absolutely stunning.
