Forgo crowded beaches; take a rest from the drunkard norm, because in this list, we bring out 25 of the most unique spring break destinations in the USA.
Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado
The Great Sand Dunes National Park has the tallest sand dunes in North America and is a prime sandboarding and sandsledding spot. Trek up a 13,000 feet (4 km) mountain or cool off in the Medano Creek with the dunes and mountains nestled in the background.
Starved Rock State Park, Illinois
A little over an hour west of Chicago, you can climb frozen waterfalls like an expeditioner on Everest. Walking through some of 18 deep canyons while looking for bald eagles is a popular mid-winter attraction.
Thor's Well, Oregon
Part of larger Cape Perpetua, Thor’s Well looks like a sinkhole to the centre of the Earth. Best seen an hour before or after high tide, the ocean waves crash into the rock formation, making it seem like a volcano spouting water before reverting to a draining hole before the next wave.
Aravaipa Canyon, Arizona
You might not believe native desert fish can be real, but see for yourself at Aravaipa Canyon, two hours southeast of Phoenix. The park’s restricted visitor access keeps the park in top natural shape, especially useful for seeing the more than 200 bird species.
Mammoth Caves, Kentucky
The longest known cave system in the world, the Mammoth Caves in central Kentucky stretch for over 400 miles (650 km) underground. Especially cool is Cedar Sink, a huge sinkhole featuring a small river entering and disappearing through its expanse.
