It seems that nowadays more people are involved in making selfies than in taking actual photos. It’s developing into a kind of art which requires a certain set of skills. Now it’s not enough to take a shot of you and your friend sipping on your morning coffee somewhere downtown. People are getting more and more involved in creating something absolutely crazy, or at least moderately stunning. Even celebs like doing selfies, and out of all people they are the lucky ones that get to travel to some really spectacular places. But about the rest of us? We can make awesome selfies, too! Here are 12 perfect travel destinations where you can create a truly epic selfie. But watch out, these days it’s one of the most dangerous pastimes!
You can find the classy Madame Tussauds wax museum all over the U.S. – Las Vegas, Hollywood, San Francisco, Orlando, New York, etc. It’s one of those moderately cheesy locations where you can still take a memorable shot and, who knows, maybe meet an actual celeb or two!
Empire State Building
Nothing can quite compare to the majestic view you get from the Empire State Building, so there’s no point in avoiding this selfie spot. Just go and try it yourself!
You can take nice selfies with the Washington Monument, it’s not that hard.
The Hollywood Sign
Another one of the all-time favorites, Hollywood sign can become either an awesome location for your epic selfie, or a cheesy setting for an upsetting shot. You choose! But there are all kinds of things you can do to end up with a cool photo on your hands. Just experiment!
The Grand Canyon
A trip to Arizona is a must for all residents of the U.S. You can’t live in this country and not see one of the most staggering natural wonders in the world! It is as beautiful as everyone says it is, and even more. But until you see it with your own eyes, you’ll be unable to grasp the sheer immensity of Grand Canyon and how many awe-inspiring photos you can take there. It’s one of the best selfie settings on Earth!
Zion National Park
The half-mile deep Zion Canyon has everything one might need for a great trip – breathtaking views, creamy cliffs, and miles of hiking and biking trails that will take you to some of the most picturesque spots you’ve ever seen. If this is not photographer’s heaven, then we don’t know what is!
The Grand Canyon is undoubtedly amazing, but there’s something equally stunning not far from it. The Antelope Canyon has some of the most colorful and truly unique rock formations that look mind-bogglingly beautiful both in real life and on photo. It’s a place you will never forget!
Mendenhall Ice Caves in Juneau
Alaska is a bit far away, but it has something you won’t find anywhere else in the U.S. The glacier in Juneau is melting due to global warming, which is regretful to say the least, but this doesn’t mean you can’t use this opportunity to explore one of the most enchanting locations ever. Be mindful of the falling ice chunks!
Yellowstone National Park
America’s number one national park is among the most stunning settings for any adventure. Yellowstone’s geysers are legendary, especially the spectacular Old Faithful that will become a perfect backdrop for any photo. Climb as high as possible and take in the most memorable mountainscape ever!
Nothing can possibly go wrong if you go with the ‘classics’. Brooklyn Bridge is one of those places that get instantly recognized by the majority of the world’s population, yet it never gets old! It’s one of the best selfie spots New York has to offer.
Head to South Dakota and have fun with the huge faces of Mount Rushmore. We mean no disrespect, but it’s hard to find a place where you can experiment as much as you can do it here! Cheesy is not always bad, so go ahead and pinch that chin, what do you have to lose?
St. Louis Arch
Head to Missouri and take a few shots of the tallest national park monument in America. This 630-foot colossus even has a tram on top for those who like to climb a bit higher for the perfect view. But you can also have as much fun as you can with it on the ground – this thing was made for awesome selfies!
