Each national park in the United States is like a separate mini-planet with its own landscapes, laws of nature, and interesting places. Here are the most scenic American parks to help you find the landscapes of your dreams!

Yellowstone, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho

The geysers and geyser fields are most impressive in Yellowstone. In the park, you should look at the high-altitude volcanic Lake Yellowstone, photograph the graphic silhouettes of dead trees on the thermal springs, and admire the local Grand Canyon – not the same, but also very picturesque!

Just 80 miles from the Yellowstone National Park is the Yellowstone Bear World, a private drive-thru wildlife park where you can visit and enjoy the experience of a lifetime. 

Yosemite, California

In Yosemite, people go to marvel at the variety of landscapes: the park has granite rocks and waterfalls, meadows, and glaciers. You will see the highest waterfall in the United States and the world’s largest granite monolith – El Capitan, admire the cliffs of the Yosemite Valley, visit the groves of giant sequoias, admire the Tuolumne meadows and Dan’s meadows, and photograph the doubled beauty in the reflection of the mirror Lake Mirror.

Death Valley, California, and Nevada

Hawaii Volcanic National Park, Hawaii

Great Smoky Mountains, North Carolina and Tennessee
