As you schedule your daily itineraries, our best tip is to start your day early! In the morning you’ll beat the crowds, enjoy outdoor activities in the cooler part of the day, and take photos in the best light.
Arches National Park is small, but it packs a lot of punch with some of the best hiking in Utah. You will find several iconic sites in Arches. Delicate Arch is the most popular arch, and it is even on the Utah license plate.
Summer provides the accessibility needed to reach this remote national park in Alaska. You can drive the Dalton Highway and hike into the park, float in on the Noatak or Kobuk Rivers, or (most popularly) fly into Anaktuvuk Pass.
Great Basin National Park is definitely underrated. It’s the only national park in Nevada, the home to Nevada’s only glacier, and one of the only places in the US to see Bristlecone trees. It also happens to be one of my favorite national parks.
