National Parks offer a mix of relaxation and stimulating adventure. From hiking, camping, climbing to diving, whale watching, and more, National Parks offer the chance for families to get away from it all with solitude and spectacular views.
Use the infographic above to help find the park that’s right for your family. National Parks don’t have huge admission fees, plus you can save money by camping or using your credit card rewards to help with your airfare or gas expenses.
To help with gas and groceries, we recommend the Barclaycard Rewards MasterCard. The card offers 2x cashback rewards on purchases for gas and groceries -- two big expense categories for most road trips. There is no annual fee.
Big, Beautiful and Busy National Parks
The Great Smoky Mountains top the list at 9.5 million annual visitors, followed by the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Rocky Mountain.
With the epic views also comes the bustling crowds, especially during peak season. However, at some of the parks, the crowds are spread out while enough so that you might not realize you’re in one of the top 10 most busy national parks.
Yosemite, Yellowstone and Grand Canyon tops the list with the most campers per year. All 3 tally over 1 million overnight stays each year.
Are you looking to enjoy the sun and surf? The U.S. National Park Service has designated miles and miles of coastline as protected national seashores including Cape Cod, Gulf Islands and Cape Hatteras.
Millions of visitors visit the George Washington Memorial Parkway, Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorial each year. National historical parks, memorials and monuments provide insights into the nation’s past.
Where are you planning to go this summer?
