    Yes, the US boasts around 25 UNESCO World Heritage sites, though I believe there are many more cultural and natural sites that would meet the criteria for future nomination to the World Heritage List.

    From the top of my head I can think of: Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Independence Hall and Mesa Verde National Park, Wrangell-St. Elias/Glacier Bay, Great Smoky Mountains, and Hawaii Volcanoes.
