Julie Epstein: While on vacation, we all search for that perfect photo op that precise moment that captures the entire trip's atmosphere. To help you snap the shot we found the best vantage points around some of America's most famous views.

New York is not only our most populated city, it's also our most photographed and while many visitors go straight to the observation decks of the Empire State Building or Rockefeller Centre, we suggest you head to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The MET's Rooftop Garden offers panoramic views of Central Park along side fascinating sculptures.

Everyone knows that Hawaii is a tropical paradise and nothing represents that vision as well as the Island of Kauai's Napali Coast. With its emerald valleys and jagged mountains, Hawaii's northern coastline is arguably the most scenic spot in entire archipelago. We suggest you hike along the Kalalau Trail for the best photo ops.

For spectacular view at night, it's hard to beat Las Vegas. When the sun sets, this city erupts into a blinding array of sparkling lights. So where is the best place to point and click in Las Vegas? The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas on the famous strip, here you'll find the perfect perch to photograph, the city's dazzling display along with all the bustling action below.
