Over 2.6-million people visitedBryce Canyon National Parkand took in the beauty of the hoodoos. One thing particularly nice about Bryce Canyon is that you don’t have to hike far to take breathtaking photos-you can get them right from the rim of the canyon. However, if you want to really get steeped in the beauty without having to work too hard, the Queens Garden combined with the Navajo Loop Trail is the hike to take!

There is so much to see and do in Big Bend National Park. One hike in particular that you won’t want to miss is the Lost Mine Trail. This moderately difficult, out-and-back hike is great for families with young (but fairly capable) hikers and will keep you captivated the entire way before giving way to breathtaking views!
Located near the Badlands of South Dakota, Wind Cave National Park is one of the lesser known of the 60 National Parks in the United States. But in any case, if you happen to be traveling to southwest South Dakota, do yourself a favor and check out this unique park and all it has to offer. You’ll be surprised-there are great things to experience both above and below ground that you won’t want to miss!
There is so much to explore in Grand Teton National Park, which can make it hard to pick out the best places to hike. If you have limited time, it can be especially difficult to choose the right places to spend your precious days. Certainly, the Jenny Lake area is not to be missed, but south of Jenny Lake is the smaller but magical Taggart Lake. This secluded lake offers incredible, close-up views of the Grand Tetons. Being a relatively easy hike for families, we think that this is one that is not to be missed!
