The world’s most beautiful views are great for the bucket list, but if you don’t have the budget or the time to get to them, here are some great dupes!

Instead of Iguazu Falls, try Niagara!

Iguazu Falls in Brazil and Argentina (L) are stunning by any standard, but you can see beautiful falls close to home. Storied Niagara Falls (R) is also stunning year-round.

Great Barrier Reef vs. Florida Keys

There’s no disputing the awe-inspiring Great Barrier Reef (L), but if you can’t get there yet, check out the Florida Keys (R), where beautiful scenery and a laid-back vibe await.

Greater Blue Mountains (Australia) vs. Smoky Mountains National Park

If the Greater Blue Mountains (L) are on your world’s most beautiful views list, you can see beautiful views for less in the Great Smoky Mountains (R) of the Eastern US.

Salar de Uyuni Salt Flat vs. Bonneville Salt Flats

If you’ve dreamed of Salar de Uyuni (L), check out Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats (R).

Danxia vs. Sedona

The Danxia in China (L) is beautiful, but Sedona (R) is a lot closer to home.

Aurora Borealis

You can see the Northern Lights in Norway or Finland (L) or also catch them in Alaska, Idaho (R), Maine, Minnesota, or Michigan.

French Lavender vs. Silverton Lavender

You can travel to Provence (L) to see Lavender fields forever, or simply head to Oregon (R). And while we’re on the subject of flower fields, the Skagit Valley tulips are one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.

Mont St. Michel vs Hearst Castle

It’s tough to find a real castle in the US but the beauty of Hearst doesn’t disappoint.
