With a deep lake that looks strikingly blue from a top the surrounding mountains, it’s a great location for those who like to hike, swim, and enjoy stunning views. Make sure to bring your camera.

From observing animals like the crocodile to the Florida panther, it’s an incredibly unique destination for the adventurer who wants to see something new. Where else in the country will you be able to experience such a unique landscape than in Florida?
3. Denali National Park-If you prefer snow over sunshine and swamps in the Everglades, you always have the option of visiting the Denali National Park. This beautiful destination is a favorite amongst those who love snow-covered mountain peaks and great hiking opportunities. The area is home to a variety of beautiful animals, such as wolves, black bears, caribou, and moose. Home to the tallest mountain peak on the continent, this is the perfect destination for mountain lovers.
4.Yosemite National Park-You can’t consider national parks in the U.S., without first considering a visit to Yosemite National Park. It’s a favorite national park and with good reason; it is truly one of the most beautiful parks in the country. With great hiking trails, beautiful views of the Sierra Nevada and the largest waterfall in North America, it’s a location that is full of gorgeous nature to leave you breathless. If you want to enjoy a part of California’s captivatingly unique landscape, this is the place to do it.
5.Grand Canyon National Park-The Grand Canyon is iconic and while some may find its colors to be a bit more drab than some of the other national parks, it’s still an iconic destination for anyone who wants to see one of the nation’s most talked about national parks. With great hiking routes, Havasu Falls, and even the opportunity for you to enjoy things like rafting or camping in the area, it’s a destination that you don’t want to miss out on. Pro tip: Visit when the sun is going down. You can be sure that the pictures will be worth sharing on any one of your social networks.

If you’re ready to see why our nation is known as one of the most beautiful ones in the world, don’t hesitate to start preparing for an unforgettable experience. Pack up your motorhome and make sure to bring hiking essentials.
After all, you can’t just go to one of these parks without spending time in nature. If you’re not an avid hiker, at least bring boots to start off slowly but surely. You can also find national parks where you can go kayaking or canoeing, swimming, and more. Whatever type of outdoor activities you like, do your best to enjoy them at one of the above-mentioned locations.
Many of these national parks have RV campsites, but make sure to book yours in advance. You want to be sure that you get a spot for your RV rental before heading out. If you can’t find one that has parking for RV’s, don’t worry, there will probably be one nearby that will provide you the closeness you need to get to the park as soon as you wake up.
