State and national parks can be a wonderful destination for an outdoor vacation. They are usually found in some of the most scenic areas of the country and their location is ideal for many outdoor activities. Each park has something special to offer and is unique in its very own way. Be sure to check with the visitor centers to obtain the history and information about the park, obtain trail maps, learn of the park attractions and to get a schedule of activities in which you may want to participate in.
Parks are an ideal place to experience, learn about and enjoy nature.
