The Grand Canyon and Christ the Redeemer

The pyramids in Giza. They must have been spectacular when new and were still covered by casing stones that formed a smooth white outer surface.

A clip: Some sources suggest that the capstone might have been sheathed in gold. Between the white limestone and the golden cap the pyramid would have made an impressive sight shining in the bright Egyptian sun.

Mato Tipila, the Bear Lodge, known to "white folks" as Devil's Tower in North-Eastern Wyoming.

I think Taj Mahal is one of the good landmark in the world which situated in India.It is an example of how deeply a man loved his wife, that even after she remained but a memory, he made sure that this memory would never fade away. This man was the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who was head-over-heels in love with Mumtaz Mahal, his dear wife.It's the history of Taj Mahal that adds a soul to its magnificence: a soul that is filled with love, loss, remorse, and love again.Annie

Annie? His dear wife? In the singular?

Mumtaz was his 3rd wife. But, he loved her most of all even though she was #3.

Annie just got schooled.... just teasing. You both knew more about the Taj Mahal then I did!

Neuschwanstein Castle has been my favorite since the first time I saw it more than 50 years ago.

The pile of t#rds and kitty litter behind the bunker created by Tommy The Basement Cat. It has developed a slight heartbeat and I believe I saw it move under it's own power yesterday. Tours daily at 10 and 2. . . 37 1/2 hours left until the rapture.

Roed, think you're going to need a some theme park music for your tours.

It's hard to choose. There are so many roundabouts to choose from.

The Statue of Liberty, no joke, still gives me goosebumps.

You'd think I'd know the correct spelling the first time....

at least your batting .500!! can't say that for your team!!

The Mayan Temples and Ruins. Never seen them in person, but I can image that they are just as spectacular as the Pyramids and Sphinx.

Cait McKnelly 4 years, 2 months ago

That would disqualify the Statue of Liberty then.

Mary Darst 4 years, 2 months ago

going to the lake for the rapture. Going to pretend I am a t Bluegrass. I am quit sure that we will all still be there on Sunday.

I will go for the pyramids in Egypt. I just can't even imagine how great they would be to see in person.

Christina Hendricks!!!!! The Pyramids were very impressive but so was Pompeii

The Eiffel Tower lit up at night is mind blowingly beautiful.

A plaque explaining the geodetic center of the United States, near the intersection of highways 24 and 281. I've visited that spot hundreds of times.

North Pole, duh. It is "cooler" than any of the other sites mentioned. I mean, Giza is in a hot desert in Africa!

Richard Payton 4 years, 2 months ago

The Twin Towers before 9/11. Now I want to see the memorial site in NY and the new national park being built in PA.

How America-centric! When asked what is the coolest landmark in the world, 3 of 4 respondents name landmarks in the U.S.!

I would say the Great Pyramid at Giza, or Great Wall of China.

riverdrifter 4 years, 2 months ago

How can anybody comment on something they've never seen? Sheeit. So, you've seen Giza and the Great Wall? I do have a pic of my Dad at the Great Wall in 1946. He would've probably included it on this list.

there is an active volcano in costa rica that when/if you arrive by air at night you can see it erupting. i think that is cool!

Deja Coffin 4 years, 2 months ago

I'm going to go with any place that the Destination Truth people go.... I would love to have that job!

Meteor Crater is cooler than the hand dug well, because it was hand dug by GOD!

riverdrifter 4 years, 2 months ago

I too like Meteor Crator, Grand Canyon and Chaco Canyon, the singularly most haunted place I've ever been to.

Cait McKnelly 4 years, 2 months ago

Although not as impressive, I find the Spiro Mounds just as haunting as Chaco. Just being in that place gives me the shivers. The energy there is...something.
