Sometimes it seems that traveling abroad is all the rage, and it’s easy to forget how many incredible destinations are found inside the United States. This is especially true when it comes to National Parks. In fact, the first national park on the planet began right here with Yellowstone. Here’s a list of a few of the best places to see on a tour of America’s 59 national parks.

5. Zion National Park in Utah

Though not as famous as Yosemite or Grand Canyon, Zion National Park in Utah drew more than 4.2 million visitors in 2016, making it the fifth most visited national park in the country for that year. Hikers, campers, photographers, and those seeking a peaceful, quiet retreat flock to this park for the views of the scenic Virgin River. If you’re looking for more action, you can rent an ATV to ride in approved areas or set out on horseback for a front row seat to some of the most beautiful landscapes found anywhere.

4. Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado

This is one of the best national parks to visit for fishermen and eco-tourists, because it has more than 150 lakes, 450 miles of streams, acres of forests, and expansive tundra. Whether you come for the walking trails full of wild flowers or the nights made for stargazing, Rocky Mountain National Park is a memory-maker.

3. Yosemite National Park in California

Possibly the most well-known of the parks on this list, Yosemite draws more than 3.5 million visitors each year. The biggest attractions are the seven-mile canyon carved by water and glaciers and the many waterfalls within the 1,200 square miles of the park. Camping in the wilderness surrounded by trees older than the nation itself is an experience you and your family will treasure.

2. Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona

While most people are very familiar with the Grand Canyon itself, many don’t realize that the entire area is a national park. Carved by millions of years of water and ice, this area is so big that it’s impossible to see all of it from any one point. Native people made their home in the Canyon as far back as 10,000 years, so a visit here is like going back in time.

1. Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina

At the top of the list is this stunning area that offers 800 miles of hiking trails and a drive through some of the most majestic mountain views you can imagine. More than 11 million people visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park every year. Ravaged by fire in late 2016, over 10,000 acres of land burned, along with 6,000 acres and many homes outside the park. At least 14 people lost their lives. The area is in a state of renewal now but promises to continue as a top destination for travelers.

Don’t deal with the hassle of international travel to see something new and amazing. Check out any one of these parks and marvel at the beauty right here at home.
