The second wonder is the Grand Canyon, located in Arizona. Through millions and millions of years, the Colorado River carved a canyon through the rock of the desert, resulting in the remarkable formation we see today.
The third wonder is located off the coast of Australia in the Coral Sea and is the Great Barrier Reef. Known to be the largest reef system in the world, it is 1,600 miles long and is made up of over 2,900 individual reefs. Amazingly, this wonder can even been seen from space.
The fourth New Wonder of the World is the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Considered the largest Art Deco statue in the world, it stands at a staggering 130 feet tall and nearly 100 feet wide with his arms outstretched. This statue stands looking down over Rio from the peak of the 2,300 foot tall Mount Corcovado.
The fifth wonder is Mount Everest. While climbing its peak is not exactly a family-friendly vacation idea, it’s definitely still worth seeing. As the highest point on the entire face of the Earth, it’s peak reaches 29,002 feet into the sky.
The sixth wonder is a sight rather than a site. The Aurora, or the Northern Lights, is best visible from Canada and other northern latitudes. Witnessing first hand the lights dancing in the sky is something that can’t be missed.
We have finally arrived at number seven. This title is given to Paricitun, a volcano in Mexico. This wonder is in the middle of the lava-covered city of Michoacan, Mexico.
