Thinking about taking a road trip to visit a national park this fall? It’s a great time of the year to go, with temperatures beginning to drop, crowds starting to thin, and all of the beautiful changing colors. Here are three parks to keep in mind:
Sequoia National Park, CA. While you may not be able to take your eyes off the giant trees, you’ll also want to walk up the 400 steps to reach the top of Moro Rock for spectacular views; visit General Sherman, believed to be the world’s tallest tree; take a tour of Crystal Cave; and explore one of the park’s many trails.

Yellowstone National Park, ID, MT, WY. You can’t visit without a trip to Old Faithful, known to erupt about every hour and a half; the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is a favorite hiking spot; the Grand Prismatic Spring at Geyser Basin is the largest hot spring in the U.S., Gibbon Falls is wondrous, and the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center is a great place to learn about wildlife.

Acadia National Park, ME. It may not be beach weather, but you’ll want to visit Sand Beach known for its beautiful views and shell fragments; Cadillac Mountain is the tallest mountain on the North Atlantic Sea Board; and Schoodic Peninsula is the only section of the park that is located on the mainland of Maine.
