15 US National Parks that are on Everyone’s Bucket List, but Why Wait?


What kids do with their parents as youngsters sets the kind of activities they will do once they are older. If you engender a love of nature through visits to national parks where the kids can go biking, hiking, trail running, boating, swim in pools below waterfalls then those are the things they are going to do when they are older – and take their kids on the same kind of outdoor adventures. The US is blessed with some of the most spectacular scenery in the world – preserved in hundreds of National and State Parks. Here’s the bucket list…

1. Grand Canyon

Formed by the Colorado River cutting a canyon as the waters flowed through Arizona in a bygone era the sheer immensity of the Grand Canyon is awe-inspiring. Besides viewing the scenery from the top you can get right down into the river and take boat trips. Camping and hiking in this unforgettable scenery makes for lifelong memories.
