What’s it like to stand above Mount Rushmore or fly through some of the biggest cities in the world? Aerial America is returning to the Smithsonian Channel with breathtaking views of the nation’s most diverse landmarks.

New York City’s Times Square is being transformed today until 5 p.m., and tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., thanks to Aerial America. Fans will have a chance to experience what it’s like to stand above the Grand Canyon with 3D pavement artist, Kurt Wenner. If you’re enjoying the sun on the West Coast, head to The Grove in Los Angeles on February 22 & 23 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. for the same experience.

In addition to the canyon experience, there will be chances to win a $5,000 grand prize sweepstakes, play trivia games, and more.

If you can’t make it to the events, be sure to catch Season 6 of Aerial America on the Smithsonian Channel on February 23 at 8 p.m. For more information, check out Smithsonian Channel and Aerial America on Facebook or the Smithsonian Channel on Twitter.
