Visit a National Park

There are 59 national parks in the United States, all of them oases of majestic beauty that support a remarkable variety of plants and animals. The marquee parks—Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Yosemite—are well worth visiting for their glorious views, landmark lodges, and some of the best wildlife spotting in America. But there are others worth seeking out. Michigan’s gloriously isolated Isle Royale National Park on Lake Superior gets barely 15,000 visitors a year, and there are many more underrated national parks to add to your bucket list. So strap on your boots and get ready to hit the nature trails of some of our national treasures.
