8. Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, United States
One might wonder why Fallingwater made this list, but one visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s house, built in 1937, explains why. It is a beautiful residential mountain retreat near the Bear Run waterfalls, and mimics the nearby waterfalls in its construction. Concrete terraces were built 30 feet above the falls, giving the entire house the constant sound of rushing water. The ingenuity of this building, constantly in motion, speaks to its Americanness as Fallingwater fits into the nature that surrounds it so perfectly.

9. Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, East Africa

Approximately 15,000 hikers climb the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, yearly. But you don’t have to hike this magnificent mountain that stands 19,340 feet high to appreciate its wonder and beauty. It is forbidden to attempt to climb the mountain without a guide, for safety’s sake. Only one out of 10 people will make it to the top, taking about six days to do so. The temperature falls as you climb the mountain from 90 degrees F at the bottom to just 10 degrees F at its top. Even if you don’t plan to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro, you should put it on your list of places to visit before you die.

10. The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia

Located off the coast of Queensland in Australia, the Great Barrier Reef is 2500 km long and consists of 900 islands. This World Heritage Site is even visible from space. Its amazing sea life is quickly disappearing, so it’s important to witness this natural phenomenon before you leave this world as well.
