The US National Parks system is quite extensive. While we haven’t been to every single one of the 425 sites managed by the NPS, we’ve thoroughly explored the ones we have visited. We don’t just drive through in one day. We’re not saying there is anything wrong with that style, but we spend lots more time finding those hidden gems to share with you.
There is so much to discover, and we’re working to share our insights with you.
We also make a point to visit sites that go beyond the national parks. That little national monument or national historic site? We’re not going to skip over it.
We’ve extensively explored all of the national lakeshores, and now we’re working on the national seashores, too.
Our passport stamp book is overflowing, even though we always forget it at home and have to use stickers or random pieces of paper instead. Glue sticks work just fine!
We’re here to tell you to do more than just drive through these beautiful natural places. One day in these parks is not enough in most cases. Each national park site is unique and has something to offer.
We’re here to help you appreciate each and every one.
We’re also here to remind you to travel responsibly. Take care of the land and practice Leave No Trace. Be respectful of these places and the other visitors enjoying these parks, too. This way, we can enjoy these beautiful and historic spaces for decades to come.
