Untamed mountains, green forests, pristine lakes, and wide-open spaces. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than at a U.S. national park? Facebook agreed and put together a list of the top 2013 check-ins from national parks around America.
Top US National Parks:
1. Grand Canyon
4. Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts
5. Great Smoky Mountains
7. Rocky Mountain
10. Joshua Tree
Interestingly enough, 12 percent of those who checked into a park on Facebook in 2013, live in another country, with the United Kingdom in the lead.
The U.S. cities whose residents are the top visitors to U.S. National Parks are from Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Denver.
Wherever you are in the world, Earth Day is the perfect excuse to get outside and enjoy, well, the earth!
