10. Yellowstone National Park, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming

Yellowstone may be known as a place to see water shooting upward from geysers, but it’s also a great park for watching water fall. The park’s largest and best-known falls are the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone (shown here). With its 308-foot drop, the force of these falls is powerful and the view is majestic—but it is by no means the only show in town. Yellowstone’s dozens of waterfalls come in all shapes and sizes, including the impressive drop of Tower Falls and the wide, multi-tiered cascades of Gibbon and Union Falls. Easy hikes lead to wonders like Mystic and Undine Falls; longer, more strenuous treks lead to impressive and less-crowded destinations like Osprey and Union Falls.
