Best National Parks for Spring Visits
After the harsh winds of winter recede, the national parks across the country begin to come to life again. The air gets warmer, the plants begin to bloom and the wildlife begins to resume their prowling and hunting activities. At the same time, the crowd levels are down and those who visit the parks are able to enjoy a sense of peace that cannot be found during any other time of year.
At Forever Resorts, we recommend visiting these National Parks during the springtime.
Grand Canyon National Park
More than 6 million people head to the Grand Canyon every year to experience its otherworldly size and magnitude. While there's never a time of year when no one else is around, the spring is a great time to experience low crowds, yet good weather. It will likely be chilly, so be sure to dress in layers. For a different experience, consider staying on the North Rim at the Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge.
Zion National Park
Summer is the most popular time to visit Zion National Park, but this season is also known for its blistering heat. In the spring, visitors will enjoy warm and comfortable temperatures. You also will discover lush, flowing waterfalls that are full from the winter thaw. Parry Lodge is an authentic western lodge located just half an hour away in Kanab, and is a great home base for your spring visit to Zion National Park.
Yellowstone National Park
This massive national park attracts visitors throughout the year, as it has both summer and winter activities and attractions. However, in the springtime, the park's geothermal features are particularly active and the species that call the park home are ushering in new life. To see all of the best attractions in this park during the springtime, book a tour with Scenic Safaris.
These are a few of the most well-known and well-loved national parks in the country, which means that the peak tourist seasons in the summer and fall can be quite busy. Take this opportunity to enjoy the calm, natural beauty of these parks by booking a visit this spring. Contact Forever Resorts, and we will help you select the resort that is right for your trip.
