Pick 5: Best Spots to Forget Your Excess Baggage & Watch the Sunset

Sunsets are romantic and awe-inspiring. If you’ve ever vacationed at the beach or the mountains, chances are you made time at the end of the day to stand still and watch the sun make its way toward the horizon, illuminating the sky with orange, yellow, purple, red and pink. Where are the best sunset-watching spots? We pick five of the best places to watch the sunset in America – and all are guaranteed to help you forget your excess baggage – and to take your breath away.

1. Relaxing on the Oregon Coast

Oregon’s Pacific coastline boasts 363 miles of shoreline and several national and state parks and recreational areas. Bandon, pictured below, is home to Bandon Dunes, ranked one of the top golf courses in the country.

2. Worry-free in Key West

Key West, Florida, marks the southernmost part of the continental U.S. It may be known for its quirky, laid-back vibe, but they take their sunsets very seriously. Watch one from Mallory Square at the end of Duval Street and you’ll see why.

The quaint, sleepy beach towns along Michigan’s Great Lake shoreline come alive with visitors every summer. From Pentwater to St. Joseph, sunsets cast against the shore’s iconic lighthouses light up the skies every evening.

4. Up in the Peaks of the Sandia Mountains

The mountains east of Albuquerque, New Mexico, are the ideal location to watch the sunset. A tram takes visitors to a 10,000-foot high observation deck affording 360 degree views.
