Least-Visited National Parks in the U.S.
In 1916, Woodrow Wilson established the National Park Service. At the time, there were 35 national parks and monuments across the United States. Today there are over 400 recognized national park areas, encompassing over 84 million acres across the country.
A visit to a national park is a great way to get out and enjoy the beauty of the United States. Parks like the Grand Canyon and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park attract millions of visitors each year, with the former seeing over 5 million visitors per year, and the later over 11 million. These places offer unmatched beauty that you should see at least once in your life. However, one of the best ways to connect with nature is to visit one of the lesser-known parks. These parks offer the same breathtaking experience without the crowds. The best part is that these locations are mostly untouched and don't have that "touristy" feel of the larger parks. Sound good?
