National Parks for Lovers

National park. Just the words bring to mind vacations: loading up the car and traveling to the natural wonders of the country; mugging for the camera at some of the best recognized landmarks in America; exploring the countryside hand in hand. For almost a century, couples have set their sights on American national parks.

The investment of even the shortest excursion, even a day trip to a local national park site, will reward the two of you with vacation experiences at budget prices.

On these pages, you’ll find parks where the two of you can hike, camp, swim, and explore. Whether your interests are mountains, lakes, seashores, or historic sites, you’ll find parks to suit your getaway.

Each week, we'll be adding additional parks throughout the country, starting with the Midwest.
