Road Trip! Best National Parks for the Family

The U.S. has 58 national parks from unique wilderness experiences to prime spots to take the family to view natural wonders and reconnect with nature. The admission fees vary, as well as the type of activities that are available. A road trip is a wonderful way to spend family time, expand horizons, and see the many marvels the U.S. contains.

Yellowstone National Park

Encompassing the states of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, the park has over 48 waterfalls and 500 geysers, exploding mud pools and steam vents that hiss. There are more than 400 types of wildlife, Old Faithful geyser, the Yellowstone Caldera that’s a 45-mile wide active super volcano, and the multicolored Grand Prismatic Spring. Descend into the Grand Canyon, experience the hot springs, and view the majestic mountains while camping, hiking, horseback riding or llama packing.

Yosemite National Park

The California park is ideal for those seeking a quiet retreat. It’s famous for its oldest living trees, the giant sequoias. A pathway was cut through one in the 1800s as a stagecoach passage. Visitors can camp, hike, take a guided tram tour, bike, and go horseback riding. There’s also rock climbing, fishing, star-gazing, and winter sports.

Grand Teton National Park

Reflective lakes, towering mountains and historic settlements are all available in the park in Wyoming. There are over 200 miles of trails, campgrounds, rafting on the Snake River, and breakfast or dinner cruises to Elk Island. Hiking, horseback riding, fishing and wildlife viewing is offered, along with bus tours.

Great Smokey Mountains National Park

From the top of Clingman’s Dome in the Tennessee park, visitors can see for 100 miles on a clear day. There’s hiking, waterfalls, Clingmans Dome viewing station, a variety of flora and fauna, and the historic buildings of Cades Cove dating back to the late 1800s. There’s also the famous Appalachian Trail.

Badlands National Park

Take the kids on a fossil hunt in the South Dakota park, hike and explore landscapes that look like they belong on an alien planet. Star-gazing opportunities abound.

Bear in mind that the national parks in the U.S. were established to maintain the national landmarks and untouched beauty to be found throughout the nation. Many of the parks have nearby lodgings and amusements should the kids get restless.
