The Most Extreme Places in the US
With international travel continuing to be restricted for Americans, there’s no better time to take stock of what America has to offer. Instead of heading to far flung corners of the world to scale the highest peak, witness wild rainfall, bake under the scorching sun, or freeze in sub-zero temperatures, look no further than your own backyard. We’ve rounded up all of America’s extremes, from the highest to the lowest, driest to the wettest, so you won’t even need to take out your passport.
Please review and follow all state and local guidelines while traveling.
