The best sunsets I have ever seen are on the East Coast of Australia where the sun sets over the Outback and shines bright red as the dust from the desert refracts the light.
The best sunrises I have ever seen are on Beech Mountain. Every morning, it is a different spectacular view. As the highest town east of the Rockies, you wake up above the clouds more often than you do below the clouds. Either way, it's pretty much a win-win!
