Then Tasmania sounds like a good fit for you. Australia on a small scale, in a more manageable portion. Plus, there'll be some beautiful spots there.

Lake Atitlan in Guatemala

Maroon Bells, Colorado, and Strawberry Hot Springs in Steamboat, Colorado, before they turned it into a tourist trap

the caldera at Santorini, Greece

the lavender fields and cliffs above the beaches on Hvar, Croata

North Florida, east and west, is very beautiful indeed.

There are other places, but I'm not going to shout from the rooftops about them.

I'm far from well-traveled but I personally felt that Victoria, BC (Canada) was a gorgeous city.

We loved all of New Zealand and Cairns Australia for scenic beauty outside of the US.
The US has too many beautiful places to list.
I believe that most countries have scenic areas that everyone can enjoy.

North Philadelphia.

In other words, every place holds its own beauty.

So true.
One need not travel across oceans or prairies to appreciate our planet.

The most beautiful place I've ever been is Rhodes, Greece. My wife and I have been nine
times over many years. Full of beautiful scenery, and lovely villages with great taverna
food. We used to hire a motorbike, and ride all over the island. Recent visits we've just
hired a car, my wife says we're getting too old for bikes! I've seen sunsets there, that
just take your breath away.

It’s hard to say which “one” with so many beautiful places that are out there. Mrs Aks & I enjoy and find all of the Nat’l Parks have their own special beauty. Glacier in Montana, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, several of them in Utah and Colo – the list goes on and on to say nothing yet about the east coast areas of Nat’l Parks. I can find beauty in a simple small town city park as well and enjoy it as much as anything else.

I haven't traveled to the extent some have, but the most beautiful place I have traveled to has been Grant's Pass into Oregon and the Siskyou mts (Is that right?). This was in early winter, snow covered and looked like a postcard. The solitude and peace were wonderful. I would truly like to go back someday. Even the air had a scent of cedar or pine. It was heavenly to say the least.
