On the Net: A Breathtaking Look at Every U.S. National Park|Fodor’s Travel

Big Bend National Park, Texas

You’ve obviously heard of Yellowstone and Yosemite, but did you know the National Park Service manages a whopping total of 59 parks? From coast to coast (with a couple of parks beyond those coasts), these protected areas represent the best of what this country has to offer. As writer Wallace Stegner said in 1893, “National parks are the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst.” In honor of the 100th anniversary of the National Parks Service, we’re taking you on a tour of every single national park, all of which are breathtaking beauties in their own regard.

I’ve been to 11 of the 59 National Parks, so far. Ten of them are in this collage. I enjoyed visiting every single one of them and I hope to visit more. 😊

Shenandoah, Hot Springs, Cascades, Everglades, Great Sand Dunes, Congaree, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Great Smoky Mountain, Mammoth Cave, and Biscayne. Not on the collage is Rocky Mountain.

Aside from National Parks, there are also National Seashores, National Recreation Areas, National Monuments, and National Historical Sites to visit in the USA totaling 410 units under the care of the National Park Service which is celebrating its centennial this year. I think it’s wonderful!

Let’s go find a National Park! #findyourpark
