7: Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon, Arizona
You don’t have to search far and wide for that tropical-like view, you can find it here in the U.S. if you visit Havasu Falls, located on the Havasupai Tribe reservation. Its vibrant blue-green color is all thanks to travertine, which comes from limestone.
Another unique aspect of this waterfall is the fact that it’s located in the heart of the desert, not too far from the Grand Canyon National Park! So, if you’re ever in the neighborhood, make sure to pay it a visit.
You could go camping with backpack mules for a truly authentic experience, after which you can set up camp. But if you’re not a fan of camping, you can stop by the Havasupai Lodge, located just two miles away from the falls. Consider joining a planned tour, and if you’re looking for a real treat, you could even hire a helicopter ride!
