Redding included in Roundup of 6 Most Underrated Views in the US
You’ve seen Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon, but what about the Grand Canyon of the East, or the Niagara Falls of the West?
The United States is home to more than its fair share of iconic, bucket list-worthy views, but even so, there are plenty of unexpected panoramas just waiting to be discovered. Featuring knockouts both natural and human-made, here are six of the most underrated vantage points in America.
Lake Shasta Caverns – California
When you think of scenic vistas, it’s not often that caves come to mind, but from California’s Carlsbad Caverns to the Mammoth Cave system in Kentucky, the American underground is chock-full of geologically-stunning grottos. Just north of Redding, about two hours from the Oregon border, Lake Shasta Caverns is a national natural landmark practically bursting with unique calcite formations. Combining subterranean splendor with beauty above ground, the caves are reachable only by boat – a catamaran trip across the state’s largest reservoir, its crystal-clear waters surrounded on all sides by mountainous terrain – bookending the adventure with knockout views from start to finish.
