There are around 62 national parks all around the U.S. With the incline of state to state traveling and just simply finding things to do outside, national state parks have increased in popularity.

Whether you are looking to hike, take in nature, get some fresh air or even take some great photos or content for your Instagram page there is a park for you.

Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park 

Though the park contains the summits of two of the world’s most active volcanoes, both Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, it is still one of the most visited National Parks.

Things to do include:

Day Hiking with views of the volcanoes, backcountry hiking over the 123,000 acres, Crater Rim drive tour, and the Chain of Crater drive tour with views of the sea.

Zion National Park

This national park located in Utah is not for the faint of heart. It is way off the beaten path but perfect for those who want a true hiking experience. Most travelers go to Zion National Park to conquer “The Subway”, a 10+ mile hike through red stained rocks that can also be repealed off of.
