Exploring America's National Parks
Issue #3 of a weekly family travel newsletter from The Family Travel Guy
The Family Travel Bulletin is a once weekly newsletter by Randy Singh featuring a curated summary of family travel news, special offers, travel advisor insights and recent blog posts from The Family Travel Guy to help you travel better, travel smarter and optimize value along the way.
Each of the 63 National Parks in the United States are filled with wilderness and wonder. The National Parks belong to all of us and it is our great privilege to enjoy them, protect them and preserve them for future generations.
Visiting National Parks this time of the year during non-holiday dates from November-March means it’s easier to get lodging reservations, parks are less crowded, temperatures are cooler and Fall colors will be amazing.
We just returned from a Fall trip to Yosemite National Park and enjoyed the jaw-dropping sights and hikes around Yosemite Valley. Visiting Yosemite National Park last month made it the 5th National Park we’ve been able to visit in the past year.
Other National Parks we’ve visited this past year include Joshua Tree National Park, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Haleakala National Park and Redwood National Park.
Each park offered something different for us to explore:
Iconic views of El Capitan and Half Dome in Yosemite National Park
Otherworldly Joshua trees and landscapes that look like they are straight out of a Dr. Seuss book in Joshua Tree National Park.
Scorching hot steam vents and lava flow overlooking Halema'uma'u Crater on the Big Island at Hawaii National Volcanoes Park
Being 10,023 feet above sea level at a dormant volcano at Haleakala National Park, setting the stage for a breathtaking range of landscapes and sights.
Being left awe-inspired by some of the the world's largest Redwood trees at Redwood National Park.
I hope this latest post sparks wanderlust and inspires you to get out there and explore more of America’s National Parks & State Parks.
Everybody needs beauty…places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike. -John Muir
