There's nothing better to do for outdoor travel than to take a national park vacation. The United States has some 53 national parks located throughout our landmass and they are all spectacular.
However, we've listed the top 10 parks below and can attest to being in each and every one so, this isn't some fake travel review, we have been there and they are amazing and we're pretty sure that if you like the great outdoors, you will think they are amazing as well.
It's a whole lot better when you're on vacation to spend your time outdoors enjoying the natural beauty of God's creation rather than spend your time off from work in a touristy amusement park hanging out with creatures that have big mouse ears. But to each his own.
The national parks offer a ton of activities to enjoy so you will never run out of things to do. In just about any park you can hike on hundreds of miles of trails, bike, camp, watch for wildlife, mountain climb, sight see, photograph nature, whitewater raft and various other activities. And then there are the winter activities such as skiing, sledding and ice skating you can do in some of the more northern national parks.
You should certainly never get board while on a National Park Vacation with the multitude of things to do and amazing sights to see. So pack up the family or strike out on your own and see the big old United States of America!
