Traveling is my passion and I hope to see as many places as possible in this world before passing away. I decided to start with some of the greatest beauties in my country. And, since I’m passionate nature, my natural decision was to travel to the best national parks I could find.
Flights to these locations don’t always come cheap, especially since most of the beautiful national parks are miles away from important cities. Thus, I suggest going the old-style – with your RV or personal car. Most of these parks also offer great camping solutions for RV lovers, and it would be a shame not to spend at least one weekend in each of these wonders.
One of the Modern World Wonders, the Grand Canyon is, without a doubt, the biggest natural attraction in America. Millions of tourists come here every year to enjoy the desert area and the breathtaking beauties Mother Earth created for us.
Rely on public transportation inside the park and make sure to bring your own bed. Hotel rooms inside the park can be quite pricey and, since we’re talking about millions of tourists, the roads will be pretty crowded for you to drive your personal car. The Canyon measures around 277 miles in length, so make sure to bring extra layers of clothing with you for prolonged visits. It gets quite chilly during the night.
This park is spread throughout three different states – Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. It offers breath-taking landscapes, diverse sceneries, and plenty of fauna and flora to wander and gaze at. The beautifully colored pool swirls created around the hot springs are on everyone’s favorite list. The wildlife is pretty diverse too – from grizzly bears to elks, wolves, and bisons, there is something for everyone.
You can also enjoy mountains, canyons, waterfalls, forests, lakes, and everything else in between. The best time of the year to visit Yellowstone is in May.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Some of the world’s most active volcanoes are ready to give you a spook in the state of Hawaii. There are countless things to enjoy on this Paradise Island, but make sure not to miss a visit to the volcano side of the island.
What I really liked about this place is that you get daily updates with the places where the lava is so you can see for yourself Earth’s wrath. The place is surrounded by local legends so I suggest contracting a local guide you through the mysterious stories from the Hawaii volcanoes.
Kenai Fjords National Park
At the opposite pole, if you’re a winter person, you’ll definitely enjoy a walk in this Alaskan national park. You’ll get over 600,000 acres of cold ice, alongside breath-taking fjords and plenty of glaciers.
You can also enjoy the diverse vegetation and wildlife – humpback whales, birds, wolves, bears, and others. There are over 190 recorded species so you’ll have a blast discovering these natural beauties.
