I need a vacation! (…don't we all?) I've always had a dream to visit all the National Parks in the U.S. I was doing some research and found a great Top Ten list! Here is data from the National Park Service. These were the 10 most visited National Parks in 2008.
- Great Smoky Mountains NP - 20,257,688
- Grand Canyon NP - 4,557,358
- Yellowstone NP - 3,979,371
- Olympic NP - 3,835,757
- Grand Teton NP - 3,829,002
- Yosemite NP - 3,618,395
- Hot Springs NP - 3,408,731
- Hawaii Volcanoes NP - 3,129,404
- Rocky Mountain NP - 2,914,252
- Saguaro NP - 2,787,595
I've been to 7 of them! We are so lucky to have such great public lands here in the U.S. Take a minute to think of not just the National Parks, but the National Seashores, Monuments, Historical Sites, etc that we can visit! Post a comment and tell us which National Park Service locations you have visited!
