Celebrate 100 Years of America’s National Parks

Celebrate 100 Years of America’s National Parks

The National Park System in the United States is 100 years old this year. That definitely calls for a celebration and it’s going to be one that goes on all year.

From the spectacular winter scenery and wildlife in Yellowstone Park in Wyoming to the summer heat and ancient canyons of Death Valley there is something for everyone.

You might also choose the Great Smokey Mountains, the high desert of Big Bend National Park in Texas or the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

There is so much to see and do in America’s National Parks that it would take years to see them all. But this is a great year to try to experience as much of their glory as you can.

One of the best way to see the national parks is by taking a tour with Smithsonian Journeys. These tours emphasize the natural history and importance to our country of this extensive park system.
