There are many decisions to decide on a vacation destination. Things seem to get more complicated when it comes to more than just you and your friends or other important people. Small or even family vacations should not drive you to drink or pull your hair. These are just a few tips that can help you alleviate the pressure of choice.
The first and easiest thing to ask yourself is what do you and the people you will be with? Are you a person who is completely outside, or is it strictly a type of indoor, or is it a hybrid? Are all of you sporty? Do you like hot weather, mild or cold season? Is sightseeing the schedule you want, or is it strictly in the sense of activity? Do you like "roughing" or do you want more comfort? You like camping, fishing, backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, bird watching, wildlife watching, history, how to see some unique forms in the park, snorkeling, swimming, scuba diving, sailing, boating, leather Rowing boats, whitewater rafting, photography, hunting, or just hanging out in beautiful places?
The next thing to consider is how much you spend and how much time you spend. There are so many national parks and monuments that are close to people, so getting there is not expensive. Getting to some of the exciting wilderness areas of Alaska can be expensive, but if you have enough money and enjoy the outdoors, it will definitely be an unforgettable experience.
Having said that, only choose your destination. Keep in mind that almost all areas have cheap travel options and then rise from there to more expensive travel options. Also, just because you are going to a national park doesn't mean you have to be "difficult". If it's not your style, there are plenty of options for day outings, mountain climbing, fishing, water sports, etc., without having to sit outside the campfire and enjoy the outdoors.
Usually, camping is the cheapest type of vacation after your initial investment in camping supplies. This can be a small amount, but keep in mind that the device can usually be used for many years. Usually, the camping cost of the park is cheaper than that of a normal hotel. If you have a RV, you can really camp comfortably. Most campsites are located in beautiful surroundings, giving you easy access to the highlights of the park. There are very few parks without campsites. In addition, when you camp, you usually cook for yourself, which also saves money. No, unless you love it, you don't have to eat hot dogs all week!
Now, if you live in the Midwest, there are many park options within driving distance, which can take no more than twelve hours or less, depending on where you live. Of course, you can always choose to fly anywhere, but some parks are a bit far from the nearest airport. Driving gives you the luxury you need for everything you find comfortable.
My favorite Midwest is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This is one of the best all-round parks in the family. It belongs to Tennessee and North Carolina. You can choose to rough on the Appalachian Trail, camping in a well-developed campsite or in the wild, or staying in a luxury suite in a nearby budget hotel in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. And, when it comes to Pigeon Forge, you'll have Dollywood and its countless attractions in the area. On the North Carolina side, you have more campsites, and the city of Cherokee has several Indian souvenirs and museums, boating and fishing [both in the last two states]. The mountains are absolutely beautiful and are a great place to take great photos. Check out our Great Smoky Mountains page for more details.
Another good choice is the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Park and State Park. They can also camp and watch wildlife, especially bird watching. The unique coastline allows you to take a walk on the beach or swim in Lake Michigan. They even have an area for you to bring your own horse and horseback riding. For those who enjoy sightseeing and history, you can visit the five World Exposition houses since 1933, or attend the Kalumic party in early May, where the Eastern Woodland Indians and the Western Great Lakes fur merchants and travelers are heavy here. The rivers along the coast of Kalumite lived between 1730 and 1830.
If you like boating, there are several places in the Midwest, but the two places in the north are the Travelers National Park and the Royal Island National Park. Voyageurs is located in Minnesota, and Isle Royale is located on the northern coast of Lake Superior in Lake Superior. Both offer great wilderness adventures as well as canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing and fishing opportunities. Voyageurs is considered a water park, which means you have to take a boat to the actual park, but this is a short journey. There are places to camp or huts that can help you equip so you can row on the waterways and find those great fishing spots. Isal Royale is a long-distance travel or short-distance "puddle jumper" flight. It only has camping in the wild, but it also provides a cabin for those who only like hiking and comfort. There are canoes, fishing, backpacking, wildlife, and the longest running research program is to study wolves and moose, scuba diving and shipwrecks. It is indeed a unique ecosystem worth observing.
More services are available in the US West National Park. The most famous is Yellowstone Park, where you will see old faithfulness and many other geothermal wonders, and it is also one of the 48 places where a few closely observe the Grizzlies. You will also see the bison roaming nearby, so be careful. It is located on the border of Wyoming and Montana. There are many ranch and hotels here, and you can also camp in the park. There are also great fly fishing, kayaking, rock climbing and backpacking trips. Another big guy is the Grand Canyon National Park. This is in Arizona, once again on the border of Arizona and Nevada, but also near the southern border of Utah. It is part of a large staircase that is a series of sedimentary rock formations that extend southward from Bryce Canyon National Park, through Zion National Park [both in Utah], and end in the Grand Canyon. There are camping, backpacking, day trekking, whitewater rafting and lots of photography opportunities.
Other large parks in the West [although they are super attractions], including Yosemite, Channel Islands, Redwoods, Arches, Olympics, Grand Teton, Canyonlands, Rocky Mountains, Gunnison Black Canyon, Mesa Verde, Crater Lake , Mount Rainier and Sequoia. All of these have a wide range of activities that will suit the needs and desires of any vacationer. Check out our various park pages for more information on each of the top parks.
The eastern United States also offers many options for holidays. Acadia National Park in Maine has unparalleled northern coastal scenery and cliffs that are not found in other parks. There are also fishing, exploring the island, hiking and beautiful gardens. To the east is the Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The Appalachian Trail runs through the park for 101 miles and offers many options for hiking and backpacking. There are also camping, fishing, bird watching and horse riding.
In Florida, you'll find three national parks and one protected area, the most famous of which is the Everglades. The Everglades is much more than what you see on TV. Wild animals are very exotic and can easily take some excellent pictures of animals and birds. There are also camping in the wild, [note the crocodile!] canoeing, fishing, motorboating, hiking, rare and beautiful plants. The Big Cypress National Preserve is very similar to the Everglades, but it also offers cypress stands, mangroves, and endangered wildlife such as the Toureg and the Florida Leopard. Activities include fishing, cycling, canoeing, hiking and hunting. Biscayne National Park is located at the eastern end of southern Florida. As the third longest coral reef in the world, there are opportunities for snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, making it a world-renowned national park resort for family vacations. Or a spring break crowd looking for an outdoor adventure. Dry Tortugas National Park is a unique park for the preservation of Fort Jefferson, built during the Civil War but never completed, and nesting sites for terns and turtles. You will be able to enjoy underwater snorkeling, saltwater fishing, swimming, lighthouses, steamboating, hiking, beach camping, boating, scuba diving, bird watching and underwater photography of some of the best coral reefs and marine life areas in the south of the South. Florida.
