TCL Chinese Theatre
The Chinese Theatre in Hollywood is the most famous movie theatre in the world. Millions of visitors flock here each year, most of them drawn by its legendary forecourt with its footprints of the stars.

Although first afforded Federal protection in 1893, Grand Canyon did not achieve National Park status until 1919, three years after the creation of the National Park Service. Today Grand Canyon National Park receives close to five million visitors each year. The oldest human artifacts found are nearly 12,000 years old and date to the Paleo-Indian period. There has been continuous use and occupation of the park since that time.

Zion Canyon (Utah)
Zion National Park is Utah's oldest and most visited national park receiving around three million visitors each year attracted by the immense canyons, beautifully sculptured rock formations, soaring cliffs and breathtaking landscapes. Zion canyon was formed over centuries of erosion caused by tributaries of the Virgin River which left behind the beautiful eroded canyon walls and monoliths. Originally inhabited by the Anasazi people; their abandoned cliff houses and rock art are scattered throughout the park, later by the Paiute Indians before the first Mormon settlers arrived in 1858 and gave it the name Zion Canyon.
