Visiting some National Parks in the New Year? Here’s how to get started.
Pick Your Park
There are so many parks to choose from, but, as a novice explorer, stick to the most popular locales for your first trip. Some of the most visited parks, including Glacier National Park in Montana; Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming; Yosemite National Park in California; or the Grand Canyon in Arizona are a great way to begin. They have all the incredible beauty and trails you’re looking for, but with the added security that so many travelers have been there, done that.
When to Visit
Depending on the weather and region you’re visiting, you can narrow down the time of your visit. You want to stay safe and avoid dangerous weather seasons, which means you may end up in the high-tourist season. Spring and summer may be the easiest, go-to time of year, especially for new National Park visitors.
Where to Stay
While an Airbnb may be a fun way to enjoy the park, a chain hotel or comfortable inn may be the way to go. You’ll have all the essentials you need with the added comfort of lodging staff to help with any tips and suggestions for the park.
