TIA Surveys Americans on Top American Treasures
April 29, 2005 – The Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty, and Yellowstone National Park top the list of American treasures that Americans would like to visit according to a recent survey by the Travel Industry Association of America.


The top ten selections, in order, were:

  • The Grand Canyon
  • The Statue of Liberty
  • Yellowstone National Park
  • The White House and monuments of Washington, DC
  • Niagara Falls
  • The Hawaiian Islands
  • Mount Rushmore
  • The Redwood Forest
  • The Glaciers and the Fjords of Alaska
  • The Rocky Mountains


"This year the travel industry is inviting travelers to recognize the many treasures we have in our great country," said Roger Dow, TIA’s President and CEO. "It’s interesting to note that the top ten are all magnificent outdoor experiences that either highlight our natural beauty or our history and culture."


Survey results support TIA’s new See America’s Treasures Campaign, which offers travelers a fun way to discover many treasures in their own backyards or in far-flung locations.


Survey results are based on a nationally representative sample of 2,681 U.S. adults aged 18 and over. The survey was conducted online March 29-31, 2005. Results have a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
