Panama Canal

It's a triumph of human engineering, an awe-inspiring sight dividing the dual Americas and joining two oceans. The Panama Canal -- an idea first floated in the 16th century, and a dream finally realized in 1914 -- is just 50 miles long, but its contributions to history are immeasurable. State-of-the-art mechanics shaded by ancient rain forest, the canal is a popular place for cruise tours.

Traversing the canal by ship takes 10 hours, though passengers may feel the time pass all too quickly. Watching as the vessel is carried through a series of water locks, raised over Panama's central hills and lowered again to meet an opposing ocean, is a thrilling experience. It's also a trip with a promising end -- no matter where travelers began their vacation, they'll find a wealth of new experiences on the other side of the canal.
