The Grand Canyon. To me, it was something palpatable, hard to define majesty. But, I'm usually very not taken in with common touristy areas or tourist traps so it was unexpected.

The back streets of the French Quarter in New Orleans. There's still a lot of Juju there.

Great thread idea. Max Patch mountain in NC is supposed to be a vortex of sorts, though I haven't felt more than "spectacular view". If you take the trail that skirts the east side you'll see really cool circles of vegetation on the hill.

I've felt spiritual rushes at Hurricane Ridge in the Olympics, Grand lake in the rockies, certain cathedrals in europe.

Then there is the inner peace of some stream in the smokies. And 1greatcity reminded me of Cades cove in the smokies - it is truly a special place. Draws tourists like a magnet, though. White oak sinks is a hidden spot nearby. I feel I might encounter a leprechaun - especially when the little valley is carpeted with wildflowers.
