5 Must See National Parks in the USA

August 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

For 100 years, America’s parks have provided opportunities for Americans to explore nature in a unique and compelling way. With the face-paced technology-driven world today, the national parks are even more of a treasure.  

What started with one park, Yellowstone, grew into a system of 35 national parks and monuments by the time the National Park Service was established in 1916. The tremendous popularity and clear value of protected public lands have continued to drive the creation of new parks, bringing the number today to more than 400 parks. There are park areas in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.

Over the years national parks have served as road-trip, picnic, and outdoor recreation destinations. They’ve provided opportunities for solitude and camaraderie, extreme adventures and quiet reflection. Our nation’s system of protected outdoor spaces has something for everyone, and it belongs to all Americans.

Below are 5 national park treasures that I wanted to share with my readers:
