Most of us know about Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon — three of the most famous natural places families love to visit.
But while those parks deserve their place on the “must see” list, there are many other incredibly beautiful, lesser-known, and less-visited National Parks … perhaps even one within driving distance of your home.
Below the jump I’ve shared some jaw-droppers you may not have already known about. And if you’re a fan of natural places and National Parks, here’s some great news: Coca-Cola is sponsoring a contest that will award a $100,000 grant to a park with the most votes. Help your favorite park win — and let me know which one got your vote!
