2. Hoover Dam
The hoover dam is one of the seven engineering wonders of the modern world and is the perfect vacation destination for families. The Dam offers gorgeous views and is a fascinating experience for any tourist especially interested in history or engineering. Plus, it is just a few miles outside of Vegas.
3. Seattle Space Needle
Seattle’s iconic Space Needle offers a 525 ft. observation level, giving visitors incomparable, 360-degree views of the city and its surrounding areas (including the gorgeous Olympic Mountains). There are many activities inside the Space Needle itself, including the first and only rotating glass floor in the world and a cafe and bar where you can enjoy snacks and alcoholic beverages while taking in the views.
While this might seem like an obvious suggestion, there is a reason that Disneyland is one of the most popular tourist attractions on the Pacific Coast.
