20 Great Tourist Attractions

3. Redwood National Forest – California

Redwood National Forest - California

The Redwood Trees are one of the most magnificent sights in the US, if not the world. Pictures do no justice – visiting these trees in person at Redwood National Forest is the only way to truly appreciate their majesty (average height is 200 feet!) and natural beauty of these trees, many of which are hundreds of years old. The oldest redwoods date back 2000 years! In addition, the 33 mile “Avenue of the Giants” drive includes a portion where you can drive thru a redwood tree!

Tip: Plan for an afternoon picnic – what better way to spend the afternoon then eating a picnic lunch surrounded by beautiful redwood trees?

Cost: Admission to Redwood National Forest is free!
Address: 1111 2nd St, Crescent City, CA 95531

I was impressed with my visit to Times Square, despite hearing it was overrated from many people. The sights, lights, people watching, architecture…it’s all fantastic! There are so many fun restaurants, shops, and activities available in the area. Planet Hollywood is a really fun, themed restaurant located in the heart of Times Square.

Tips: Bring with a camera – there are plenty of fantastic photo ops. Also, I recommend planning out restaurants and activities in advance as there are hundreds of options

Cost: Free!
Address: Broadway and 42nd St. New York, NY 10036

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your
    theme? Excellent work!
