Thanks to amazing visionary leaders like John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt, we can spend another 100 years enjoying our country’s great lands. So before summer ends, make some time to connect with nature and witness some of the astonishing places that have been preserved for us, and generations to follow. Cheers to a new century of National Parks.
There is a reason the Grand Canyon is known as ‘the Disneyland of National Parks.’ With an average of five million visitors per year, the Grand Canyon is something that must be experienced in person. No photo or video can ever compare to standing in awe at the foot of this geological marvel. With great hiking, spectacular views, and a rich history there is an abundance of activities to enjoy. Descend through layers of time on a mule ride down the winding steep rocky edges to the Colorado River, or fly above to experience the vast natural wonder in a helicopter for a truly unique perspective. It does not matter which way you choose to see the Grand Canyon, because it is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
Where the ocean, mountains, lakes, and forests meet make Acadia National Park a distinctly remarkable place. It is easy to lose track of a day, a week, or even a whole summer while exploring the charming island park. There are 26 mountain peaks to summit and 52 miles of crushed granite biking trails to explore. Fall back in time to the golden age of the Rockefellers and take a Clydesdale-pulled carriage through some of the historical Acadia attractions. Spend the day relaxing on Sand Beach or go for a climb alongside the ocean at Otter Cliffs. No matter how you spend your time in Acadia National Park, be sure to end your day on top of Cadillac mountain for panoramic views as far as the eye can see. This park will undoubtably capture your heart.
Americana at its finest is what you will find at The Badlands National Park in South Dakota. It may be a lesser known national treasure, but one you won’t want to miss! The Badlands is a landscape like no other; with minimal vegetation and dramatic layered rock formations, you may feel as if you are exploring another planet. The endless towering spires of rocks make for some incredible views. The winding loop road constantly reveals new rock forms beyond our imagination. As you explore this vast national park you may see big horned sheep, bison, or even prairie dogs roaming the grasslands. Full of life from the past and present, the Badlands National Park is one of the worlds richest fossil beds. Visit the working paleontology lab and learn about the latest scientific discovery. After a long day exploring the park, spend the night at one of the parks’ two camping sites and gaze up at the night sky full of stars. Memories made at this unique national park are sure to be cherished for years to come.
