As Facebook continues to dominate our social lives, one of the many excitements of travelling is uploading those money shots to share with
friends and family. From the east to west coasts, I have the perfect scenic spots for you to play photo shoot on your vacations.

Kauai, HI: If your ideal winter get away includes sun and sand, Hawaii’s tropical climate is a perfect way to catch summer sun during the cold months. Your money shot in Kauai is on the Kalalau Trail located on the Na Pali Coast of the island. Hike the stunning 11 mile trail starting at Ke’e Beach to showcase your bronzed skin against the many panoptic views of the island’s green cliffs and aqua sea. Or, take a more relaxing boat ride to the destination and capture yourself against
the glimmering waters.

New York, NY: Immerse yourself in what many people call the greatest metropolitan city in America and capture its true bustling essence at the top of the Metropolitan Museum of Art at The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Your Kodak moment will feature a full view of Central Park and its seasonal trees against the city’s famous high-rises. To capture a view of Manhattan’s silhouette, travel across the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River. This classic view is well worth travelling outside the city.

San Francisco, CA: From its historical cable cars zipping down its hilly landscape to its playful “Painted ladies” houses, the city on the bay holds many opportunities for photo fanatics. However, the best of the best is actually located outside of the city. A priceless view of its infamous Golden Gate Bridge can be found from the Marin Headlands across the bridge, where beaches and hiking trails are boundless. You will be able to capture the whole entire bridge, Alcatraz, and downtown all in one shot!

Grand Canyon National Park, AZ: One of the most breathtaking views in all of America, the Grand Canyon in Arizona serves as a perfect vacation photo op. To get the best of the best, take the 13 mile Rim Trail to capture the Grand Canyon and Colorado River at their finest.

Las Vegas, NV: To go along with your pictures of Elvis impersonators, take a trip up the faux Eiffel Tower and capture you and your tipsy friends with Caesars Palace Coliseum, the new Cosmopolitan towers, the New York- New York Casino, the Luxor Pyramid, Mandalay Bay, and the Bellagio Fountains. If you go at dusk, you can capture the panorama of the strip as well as Las Vegas’ spectacular sunset.
