The Top 5 National Parks in the U.S.

The United States has so many diverse geographical regions throughout the country, it’s hard to choose which one to visit. Some of the best destinations are not cities but parks-national parks that is. No other locations feature the diverse regions like those of national parks, and they do a wonderful job. Check out the list below of the best parks to visit to see what the U.S. has to offer. And don’t forget your camera!

1. Yosemite

Located a four hours drive east of San Francisco, Yosemite National Park is the ultimate outdoor playground. Home to the Half-Dome, a giant rock formation that is famous for it’s cable hike up the backside of the rock. The views at the top are unparalleled, especially since the hike from the valley to the top takes you two days. The Half-Dome hike is so popular that it sells out months in advance. But that’s not all; Yosemite is home to beautiful waterfalls. The El Capitan, one of the most impressive and famous rock climbing cliffs in the world. Did I mention this park is unbelievably beautiful? Enjoy a weekend camping in one of the many sites around the valley and keep your food locked up! There are bears in the woods!

2. Yellowstone

While Yosemite is high in elevation and mountain ranges, Yellowstone is mainly flat. But that doesn’t make it ugly. Its vast lands are filled with tons of wildlife like bison, deer, bears, and antelope. It’s one of the most beautiful landscapes in the country and is home to the most famous geyser, Old Faithful. Although it’s not the highest in the park, it’s the most frequent. It goes off multiple times within an hour. There are hundreds of hikes, hot pools and activities to take part in here. You can even drive a mere 30 minutes south and you’re in the Grand Tetons National Park, which is equally beautiful and totally worth the visit.

3. Joshua Tree

Literally in the middle of nowhere, Joshua Tree National Park is a unique region that is frequented every year by road trippers, astrologists, backpackers and the occasional sage brush. The rock formations are over 100 million years old, divided between two different desert ecosystems. Joshua Tree is famous for it’s night sky and many drive out from L.A. to gaze at the incredible star show. Others take advantage of the rock climbing and hiking. Either way, it’s definitely worth visiting if desert climates are your thing.

4. Zion

Located in Southern Utah, Zion National Park may be one of the most photographed places in the states. With beautiful and unforgettable landmarks, Zion is full of mountain biking trails for the thrill seeker. Zion Canyon is a very popular tourist spot, offering a stunning view of the canyon below. Guided horse treks are another favourite of the area, as well as camping and hiking.

5. Glacier

Located in both Montana and Canada, Glacier National Park is utterly unbelievable. If you want an ultimate backcountry experience in the looming mountains above you, then this park is your best option. With crystal clear lakes only accessible by foot, wildlife at every corner, and stunning panorama views of the mountain ranges makes this park one of the most popular summer destinations. The ‘Road to the Sun’ is a slow and steady drive up the mountains to the summit for a view that only appear in your dreams. Fishing, backpacking, and family-friendly camping are popular options here.
