9. Kauai, Hawaii
Even Hawaii, one of the places recognized worldwide for its beaches and idyllic scenery, has its hidden places. This is the case of the Kauai island, considered the smallest of all four islands in the archipelago, the greenest – that’s why it was named “Garden Island” – and also the oldest one. This is certainly one of the tops of the unknown beautiful places! Kauai is cited by many as the rainiest spot in the entire world, with 350 days of rain, which is about 96% of the year. Many people who watch the classic Jurassic Park and King Kong films believe that their setting has some kind of computing interference. But no, its natural perfection is solely responsible for this island. The island “was born” about 6 million years ago and originates from a volcanic formation. The first European to reach the islands was Captain James Cook, who landed at Waimea Bay in 1778. During the reign of King Kamehameha, in the 19th century, the islands of Kauai and Niihau were the last to join the Kingdom of Hawaii. Today tourism is Kauai’s main economic activity. So, you will not stop buying those souvenirs and strengthen local commerce, okay? There is no way to get past it without visiting Waimea Canyon State Park, or the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, the Wailua Falls, and the Na Pali Coast, a recreation center that is a little bit difficult to access. This is one of the most expensive trips on the list, with total expenses hovering around $ 1300
10. Hudson Valley, New York
This region extends from the city of Albany to New York, in the northeastern United States. It involves nine different counties and comprises a population of approximately 2.4 million inhabitants. Hudson Valley is cut by the Hudson River, which often has been described as “America’s Rhine”. The first to occupy their area were Native Americans known as Lenapes. With the arrival of the Dutch in 1610 to extract beaver skins, the formation of the colony of New Amsterdam began, which today is called New York. Its entire history is marked by the main events that shook the United States: the Pre-Columbian era, the colonization, the Revolutionary War, and the Industrial Revolution.
