Head To These Underrated Destinations In The USA As The Country Opens For Tourists Again

© Provided by iDiva

After being closed to tourists for a long time, the United States is finally opening up its borders this November. The country had imposed a blanket ban on foreign travellers at the start of the pandemic in 2020. 

Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator, recently appeared in a news conference, stating, “Today we’re announcing a new international air travel system. This new system includes strict protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 from passengers flying into the United States, protecting Americans and making international air travel safer.”

So if you are fully vaccinated, you can now head back to the US for travel and tourism. There will be no need for quarantining. 

This also means that you can give your unadulterated concentration to exploring the gorgeous country. You might have been to Las Vegas and dreamt of chilling in New York, but there are so many other beautiful destinations in the huge huge country that is the US. 

Here are some underrated US destinations you should head to this time when the travel ban is finally over! 

1. Glacier National Park, Montana 

A remote and breathtaking destination, this national park is pristine. You’ll get to see jagged mountains, snow-laden valleys, azure lakes and more such enthralling views! A great place for avid nature enthusiasts and people who love hiking, trekking, and other outdoor activities. 

2. Solvang, California 

You can now visit Europe while you’re in the USA! This small Danish settlement is full of fun and fabulous things to do. Head to the ostrich farm here or ride around and see the many windmills this interesting town has to offer. You’ll also find a ton of great bakeries here. This is definitely a hidden gem that not many people know about. 

3. Yachats, Oregon 

If you’re not a fan of the fast-paced city life, then head to Yachats for dramatic cloud cover, breathtaking scenery, rugged coastlines, and a tranquil vacation. You could explore the many tide pools by the sea or sample the exquisite seafood in town. You can also hike in the forests or take a nap in a log cabin. And for those of you who would rather relax, this destination is the perfect getaway for a lazy holiday!

4. Valley of Fire, Nevada

If you’re looking for an experience that you’ll never be able to forget, the Valley of Fire is the perfect destination for you. A great place for people who love rock climbing, this state park is a hidden gem that has breathtaking landscapes, and an otherworldly charm. The red, orange, and pink canyons also provide opportunities for those Insta-worthy pictures.

5. Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico

This cavernous destination is full of unique caverns and cave systems. With almost 119 limestone chambers hidden away under the Chihuahuan Desert, the Carlsbad Caverns are one the most distinct places to visit in the country. Take a look at the stunning stalagmites and stalactites, and make sure not to lose yourself in the labyrinthine caves.

6. Atchafalaya Basin, Louisiana

The USA is a huge country, and so, there are varied landscapes and ecosystems in different parts of the expansive locations. Louisiana is known for its unique marshland and the Atchafalaya Basin is a place everyone should visit. These wetlands on the Mississippi are home to diverse wildlife and flora. Explore the breathtaking swamps and marshes here for an unforgettable trip. 

Have you visited any of these amazing tourist destinations in the US? It is time to forget about the overdone locations and head to the more offbeat places to enjoy the real beauty of Northern America!
