A few years ago I visited my first National Park, Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine. Talk about breathtaking beauty! Since then, it’s become a personal mission to add all 58 National Parks to my bucket list. Yes, I intend to see and conquer them all. No matter where you’re located in the U.S., there’s likely a park within a day’s drive from you, making it a perfect destination for a family road trip this summer. From rocky coastlines to towering redwood trees to stunning mountains, the parks will inspire a little nature loving for parents and kids alike. Ready to get your adventure on? Here’s my guide for travel essentials when tackling your favorite National Park!
