The Best National Parks to Visit in the US — Erik Halvorsen | Hobbies


Yellowstone is best known for being the world’s first national park, and people visit it daily for a good reason. With 2.2 million acres to explore, stretching over three states (Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho), there’s so much to see and do. Whether it’s viewing Old Faithful or spending some time at the many lakes and hot springs, you most likely won’t see the entire park in just one sitting.

Glacier National Park

If you love lakes and mountains, you’ll love this place. Glacier National Park is located on the border of Canada and Montana and is a stunning place full of natural beauty. Often called the “Crown of the Continent,” Glacier National Park is a favorite among hikers, housing different trails for a variety of different skill levels. If you’re new to hiking, take it easy on the Trail of the Cedars; likewise, if you’re ready for a challenge, Grinnell Glacier is one of the best for you to go to. This park has over 700 gorgeous lakes, many waterfalls, and spans over two mountain ranges.
