4 National Parks to See with Your Family
Now is an opportune time to start planning your next getaway to America’s National Parks. Whether you’re just bringing the kids or you’ve got aunts, cousins and in-laws in tow, your family will love adventuring through historic sites and experiencing the great outdoors together.
Not sure which location is the ideal fit for your family? We’ve rounded up four of our favorite family-friendly National Parks to get you started.
1). Bryce Canyon
Located in southwestern Utah and attracting more than 2 million visitors each year, Bryce Canyon is widely known for its unique rock formations called “hoodoos.” Travelers big and small can explore all day and rest their heads at The Lodge at Bryce Canyon, the only lodging within the national park. The lodge offers amazing views of the park, making your Bryce Canyon adventure a vacay the whole family will never forget.
Yellowstone National Park is one of the most popular attractions in the Midwest. Located mainly in Wyoming, with small sections jutting into Montana and Idaho, the 3,500-square-foot National Park drew a record 4,257,177 visitors in 2016. Travelers from across the globe flock to the geological spot to view the famous geysers, as well as canyons, rivers and pine forests. It’s an amazingly diverse and unique landscape. Experience Yellowstone by booking a tour with Scenic Safaris, where there are plenty of family-friendly excursions for you to choose from.
3). Grand Canyon
There’s no picture that can capture the vast beauty of America’s iconic Grand Canyon National Park, so you’re going to have to come see it for yourself. The views here are impressive no matter your age. Your time in the park is likely to be spent seeking out the best views of the 277-mile-long canyon, wondrous in its multi-colored orange and red layers. Pack up after a long day of exploring and rest comfortably at Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge, the only hotel on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
4). Grand Teton
The snowcapped peaks of Grand Teton National Park are a tranquil setting sought out by adventurers and photographers. Jump in the car for a scenic drive on Signal Mountain Summit Road and ascend 800 feet to enjoy 360-degree views of the Tetons and Jackson Hole. Looking for more than just a scenic drive? During the warmer months, your family can enjoy water activities such as fishing, scenic river float trips, canoeing, and kayaking when you stay at Signal Mountain Lodge, the only lakefront accommodations in the park.
