I've been to some beautiful beaches, but those kinds of places are more peaceful or calming than awe-inspiring, to me. The Google Images pics that come up really don't do this place justice, btw. Here are a few of my favorites:

Sunset south of Taos NM with dark clouds in the sky sandwiching the sunset between them and the mountain range.

Monument Vallery any time of day.... incredible huge formations all across the huge valley

Saguaro national moment/park at dusk near Tuscon where the desert sunset blends with particles in the air to creat a redish shade to everything you see

The Amalfi Coast in Italy any time of day.... beautiful steeper than expected mountains plunge to the deep blue sea with white washed villages dotting the hillside

Fall folage at when it first arrives in New England (after an hour or more of seeing it your eyes mind adjusts and expects all that color and the effect dwindles)

Lake Louis in Canada or Crater Lake in Oregon - the deep blue calm water with majestic reflection of the mountains

If you had said Ironbound, I was going to be with you in Newark. I assume its still a safe great seafood/portugese food area.

I'd disagree there. I've found I could drive around the White Mtns in NH all day during peak foliage, but when I get onto Bear Notch Rd between 302 and the Kancamagus, it goes to 11.
