While trolling Reddit today, I found this list of the top 25 tourist destinations in the U.S. It strikes me as significant that only eight of the 25 can be remotely considered “natural attractions.” and of those eight, many are man-made modifications of nature. This country certainly doesn’t have a dearth of natural attractions, so it must say something about our need to be entertained more than Mother Nature can provide.
For the record, I’ve been to 11 of the 25 most popular attractions — but only three of the eight “natural” attractions. How about you?
