At number 8, Central Park’s location and size might have to do with its placing on my top 10 most beautiful places in the U.S. list. Located smack dab in the middle of one of the largest diverse U.S., cities: New York City, this park is unique with its location. Manhattan is the city that never sleeps, and according to 2012 census, with a population of over 8 million people, this park is right in the middle of the hustle and bustle lifestyles of new yorkers.
