Four National Parks to Visit in the US

With travel being limited this year, escape to the great outdoors to one of America's National Parks. Whether you're backpacking or glamping, you can't beat the picturesque views along with the flora and fauna in one of these National Parks.

1) Yosemite:

California's most visited national park known for it's impressive waterfalls, such as Vernal Fall and Bridalveil Fall as well as it's rock formations like the Half Dome and El Capitan. Make sure to stop by the Tunnel View Outlook for a beautiful panoramic view of Yosemite Valley.

2) Yellowstone:

The world's first national park spanning 2.2 million acres known for its unique natural attractions and diverse geography. Get lost in one of the many show-stopping lakes, mountains, buffalo-filled valleys, and of course, geyers and hot springs, which attract visitors from near and far.

3) Glacier National Park:

Glacier National Park is defined by water and mountains, since the park spans two mountain ranges and includes over 700 lakes across Montana. This park is known for it's expansive hiking trails such as Trail of the Cedars and Iceberg Lake Trail. Other activities to check out is a scenic ride along the Going-to-the-Sun Road and a trip to the unique Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.

4) Grand Canyon:

The Grand Canyon is so beautiful and magnificent that photos don't even do it justice. It's a place you simply have to see for yourself. The Grand Canyon spans 18-by-277 miles and offers many hiking trails as well as rafting experiences along the the Colorado River. The turquoise waters of the Havasu Falls are also a must-see attractions. For a less touristy spot, head to the less visited North Rim.
