National Parks Worth Visiting…3 of My Favorites!

I love visiting National Parks…the nature, the quietness, the limitless opportunities for exercise and adventure. Taking a vacation to a national park area often leads to the best photographs and memories. I have visited plenty of parks over the years. Check out a few of my favorites so far…

1. Redwood National Parks (California) – The most spectacular scenery in the country. The trees are just so majestic, you have to see them up close for yourself to truly appreciate the grandness of it all. Taking a picture next to these gigantic trees truly is a once in a lifetime experience. Did you know that there is also an area where you can drive through a Redwood tree? Pretty cool…

2. Yellowstone National Park (Montana, Wyoming) – I have taken several all day drives through Yellowstone. I saw plenty of bison, but never a bear! The scenery is beautiful, Old Faithful is amazing, plenty of spots are available for awesome photographs, and seeing bison right next to our car was a once in a lifetime experience!

3. Grand Teton National Park (Wyoming) – One of the most relaxing national parks which I have driven through. We saw plenty of moose just lying around peacefully. Great park for viewing wildlife! Yellowstone tends to get all the attention, however, Grand Teton is also worth the trip!

National Parks I most want to visit: Grand Canyon(never made it here on my trips to Arizona – can’t wait to do a hike here), Yosemite (definitely a must-see!), Denali (need to visit Alaska soon), Acadia (lived in Maine but somehow never made it over here – can’t wait to look for sea glass at this hotspot), Smoky Mountains (only drove through briefly – I would like to stay in a mountain cabin), and Arches (I have heard that this park in Utah is amazing – love the desert scenery)

    I am so glad to see Redwood National Parks on this list. It’s my favorite national park I’ve ever been to. Whenever someone asks me where they should go on a trip to California – I always name the redwoods.

    I always had an obsession with the Redwood National Park. I always wanted to go there since I was a little kid. Yellowstone seems like a nice place but seems like bison are always in the road.

    I, too, would love to visit Canada. I have a friend who has relatives out there, and I am in awe of her photos when she comes back from a trip. Absolutely breathtaking!

  1. Hiking in England looks beautiful too! I also like that you don’t have to worry as much about wildlife (bears, etc.)

    Lordy – look at those trees! Absolutely breathtaking. I would love to tour some of the amazing national parks in the USA. The ones we have in the UK are beautiful, but they are not on the scale of yours.

  2. I have always wanted to visit Canada, Vancouver in particular – looks beautiful from what I have seen online/through the movies. I am sure Canada has plenty of fantastic parks with all the forests/natural beauty up there!

    I was getting ready to tell you about one of my favorite national parks of all time….and then I remembered that it was in Vancouver, Canada, so wouldn’t technically fit for this list. They have some incredible scenery up there and I’d love to visit again some time.

    I would really like to visit California to see the red woods, too. They’re so huge! I don’t think pictures can accurately describe is, so I want to be up close and personal to some.
