Searching for adventure doesn’t mean you have to travel around the world. There are countless adventures waiting right here at home, in the US National Parks.
Whether you grew up road-tripping with the family and camping in National Parks or if you’ve never set foot in one before, the US National Parks offer something for everyone – from hard-core hikers to those who prefer more of the comforts of home.
No matter where you live in the US, there is a National Park near you. While many people immediately think of the big parks – Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Olympic National Park, there are so many other smaller, less known National Parks to choose from.Â Pick one close to you, or pick your park based on interest – parks that offer camping, wildlife, river rafting, or even parks close to major cities so you can make day trips in and stay in comfort at night.

And if comfort is a concern for you, try glamping, or “glamorous camping” in which you bring some of the comforts of home with you to make your stay less about roughing it and more about enjoying nature in comfort and style. If you’re more concerned about your impact on the environment, skip the glamping gear and go for eco-friendly travel gear instead. Made with low environmental impact in mind, these pieces of gear allow you to immerse yourself in nature without damaging the very nature you came to see.
