Top 5 National Parks for Retirees

Many workers who retire find themselves creating a bucket list of all the places they want to travel to during their golden years. They finally have the time, money and inclination to travel, and they are ready to hit the road.

Retirees who want to see the beauty of America will definitely want to visit as many national parks as possible. These are the top 5 national parks for retirees:

Zion National Park

Zion National Park is a wonderful destination for those who are hoping to make the most out of their retirement. It is a popular park, but retirees have the opportunity to visit during the slower seasons, such as the springtime when the colorful wildflowers are in bloom. Many retirees find that staying at Parry Lodge in nearby Kanab is the best option for their trip to Zion. 

Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park is the best national parks destination for retirees who want to take a fall trip after the children have gone back to school. The stunning waterfront cliffs juxtaposed by the colorful autumn leaves makes for one of the most glorious displays in the country.

Yellowstone National Park

The sheer size of Yellowstone National Park can be intimidating, but retirees will love exploring this park while on a Scenic Safaris tour. This company offers accessible tours during both the summer and winter months to the park's best attractions.

Isle Royale National Park

This quiet and calm national park in Michigan is the perfect choice for retirees who want to enjoy a peaceful trip. Rock Harbor Lodge is the only place you can stay within the boundaries of the park.

Grand Canyon National Park

Retirees who want to escape the flocks of tourists who dominate the landscape of this national park can stay at the Grand Canyon Lodge at the North Rim. This hidden gem provides travelers with unparalleled access to the canyon in an intimate setting.
