America's Stonehenge is an ancient megalithic sight in New Hampshire that offers self-guided tours. This site - whose builders and origin are unknown - features a maze of man-made chambers, walls, and ceremonial meeting places - dated over 4,000 years old, making it one of the oldest structures in America. Like Stonehenge in England, America's Stonehenge was built by ancient people well versed in astronomy and stone construction. It has been determined that the site is an accurate astronomical calendar. It was, and still can be, used to determine specific solar and lunar events of the year. Various inscriptions have been found throughout the site, including Phoenician and Iberian Punic Script. Dr. Barry Fell of Harvard University did extensive work on the inscriptions found at the site. They are detailed in his book "America B.C."
The Mesa Verde archaeological region, located in the American Southwest, was the home of an ancient people who constructed entire villages in the sides of cliffs. Mesa Verde is Spanish for "green table," and the people who lived there are often called the "Anasazi," a Navajo word that has been translated as "the ancient ones" or "enemy ancestors." They left behind rich archaeological remains that, along with oral stories passed down through the ages, have amazed researchers. Recently, evidence was discovered that the people at Mesa Verde had sophisticated mathematical knowledge, using the golden ratio - a mathematical ratio also used at the Giza Pyramids - to help construct a Sun Temple. A multitude of mysteries surround exactly who these people were, where they got that knowledge, and how, why, and when exactly they disappeared.
Coral Castle is one of the most mysterious attractions around - a stone "castle" and sculpture garden built in stone, by one man, the mere 5 foot, 100 lb. Edward Leedskalnin. From 1923 to 1951, the Latvian immigrant single-handedly and secretly moved, carved, lifted, and arranged over 1,100 tons of coral rock, and his unknown process has created one of the world's most mysterious accomplishments.To this day, no one knows how Leedskalnin created the Coral Castle. Built under the cover of night and in secret, at a time when there were no modern construction conveniences, Ed would only say that he had learned "the secret of the pyramids." When he died, his secrets died with him, and to this day scientists and thinkers still debate Ed's methods.
Dinosaur Valley State Park is located in Somervell County, Texas, near the little town of Glen Rose.

Glen Kuban's site (also linked) provides additional information, such as details on the types of dinosaur tracks found in the park.
