The United States has 63 national parks run by the US National Park Service.  These lands are preserved due to diverse ecosystems, unique geological features, and just simply unmatched beauty.  By protecting these lands, it is ensured that people will be enjoying these parks for generations to come.

Some of the national parks warrant a longer visit to savor its offerings.  Others you can see in a day.  Check out the “facts box” on each national park post for quick facts and top experiences to have in the park.  That way, even with limited time, you can be sure you are hitting the “must do” in that park!

Each round marker is a national park we have visited with a blog post linked, just click!
