The National Park System in the United States is the country's greatest treasure. With 58 national parks, and numerous national monuments, seashores, memorials, and other designated protected areas, you will never run out of amazing adventures in the United States. All in all there are over 400 places for you to explore within the national park system. We often get asked what was our favorite National Park. Each park has its own unique characteristics, making it very difficult to compare one to the other, and to choose a favorite. Of course, it is also going to be different for every person. Some of our favorites are some of the most underrated parks within the system.
If we were told we could choose to only visit 10 national parks again in our lifetime, these are the ones that we would choose:
Yosemite National Park
Arches National Park
Sequoia/ Kings Canyon National Park
Grand Teton National Park
Northern Cascades National Park
Acadia National Park
Saguaro National Park
Rocky Mountain National Park
Smoky Mountains National Park
Denali National Park
We will follow up with a BLOG on each of these parks and let you know why we have chosen these as our Top 10.
There isn't a single National Park that we would not take the time to visit again. We hope to visit them all again after our world trip. It is vital that we all reach out to our Representatives and make sure that they are doing everything possible to protect these National Treasures. Millions of people a year travel around the world to see these places, and millions of Americans explore these parks annually. President Teddy Roosevelt once said " We have fallen heirs to the most glorious heritage a people ever received, and each one must do his part if we wish to show that the nation is worthy of its good fortune".

Totally agree with you about each park having unique qualities, and yes, we would visit over and over again, because of their beauty! Our biggest pet peeve is when they bus in folks, then its so over-crowded, so to avoid, visit off season, and/or when you visit, get out early, early to see nature before the buses come in! Half of those you mentioned as your most favorite we haven't been too, so, guess its time for another road trip! Enjoy and thanks for sharing!

We like getting to the parks early. Arches had about 60 cars in line throughout the day. We got there before it opened, which you can do at most parks, and we drove to the far side of the park and worked our way back. We felt like we had the park to ourselves most of the time! Definitely get back out there! We are actually hitting a few of these again on the way to Vancouver! Thanks for your comment!
