The United States has the good fortune of having an excellent national parks system, dating back over a hundred years. The National Park Service, with the help of volunteers and park partners, protect nearly 400 places for 275 million visitors every year.

Our National Parks Service does an outstanding job of administering the parks, and preserving our natural and historical heritage, especially considering the funding limitations paced on them by Congress.

Included on this website are venues designated as "national parks," plus national monuments, historical sites and other parks.

We have included an assortment of photographs, maps, commentary, lodging suggestions, and reviews.
