South Miami Beach, Florida

South Beach (or "the Beach" as known to its locals) is a section of Miami Beach, Florida that encompasses the lower 23 blocks of the island from the point south of 1st Street to 23rd Street. This area was the first section of Miami Beach to be developed starting in the 1910s, thanks to development efforts of Carl Fischer, the Lummus Brothers, John Collins, and others. The area has gone through numerous changes over the years --some man-made and some due to the forces of nature, like the hurricane of 1926 that destroyed much of the area.

Indepedence Hall, Philadelphia

Independence Hall, officially known as the Pennsylvania State House, is a historic building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Built between 1732 and 1753, it was designed in the Georgian style of architecture by Edmund Wooley and Alexander Hamilton. It was commissioned by the Pennsylvania colonial legislature and is located on Chestnut Street between 5th and 6th Streets.

It was the principal meeting place of the Second Continental Congress from 1775 to 1783, the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776, and of the drafting and signing of the United States Constitution in 1787. During the hot summer of 1787, the windows were kept shut so that others could not hear the discussions going on inside. Its belltower was the original home of the Liberty Bell.

Wow the US is SO beatiful and diverse!! Crater Lake National Park in Oregon is widely known for its intense blue color and spectacular views. The winter brings some of the heaviest snowfall in the country, averaging 45 feet of snow per year.

Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States
The second deepest lake in the Western Hemisphere
The seventh deepest lake in the world
Maximum lake depth: 1932 feet
Average lake depth: 1500 feet
Maximum lake width: 6 miles
Lake surface elevation: 6176 feet

You can see down hundreds of feet because the water is so crystal clear.

Minnesota's Palisade Head and sea caves (part of the Lake Superior coastline):



The great inland sea, Lake Superior, source of 10% of the world's fresh water (Minnesota to the west, Ontario to the north, Michigan and Wisconsin to the south):



The Great Lakes have 10,900 miles/17,500 Km of coastline and would submerge the entire continental US under 9 feet of water if evenly distributed.
