9 UNIQUE ACTIVITIES IN NATIONAL PARKS

When I think of National Parks, I think of beautiful landscapes, historical sites, and epic hikes. But if you take a look around, you’ll find that there are a ton of other activities, too. The more we explore, the more we find. Here are 9 unique activities you should check out.

Sandboard at Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

You can hike up the tallest sand dunes in this park, but the fun part is coming down! Rent a sandboard and zoom down before climbing back up for another ride. Keep in mind that you will have to rent the boards outside of the park. See more here: http://localadventurer.com/great-sand-dunes-national-park-colorado/

 

Climb Into Cliff Dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Mesa Verde National Park has some of the most remarkable geography. There are countless viewpoints where you can see the cliff dwellings from above, but if you book a tour, you can climb into them and stand where people did thousands of years ago.

FIDDY STATES TOP 10 RV DESTINATIONS IN THE FIFTY STATES

Hi there! Megan & Drikus from the Fiddy States here! As native Australians, we’ve spent the last six months taking a break from work so we could travel the United States. Our goal was to see all 50 states, and now we can finally say that we have made it. 
Today, we’re excited to share with you our top 10 favorite RV destinations. This was a hard one since there are so many good places to choose from, but in no particular order, here we go!

 

  1.   Alaska


 

 

Alaska was by far our favorite state for many reasons. First, we LOVED having 24 hours of daylight during the summer. The sun would go down behind the mountains for about 3 hours and then slowly start coming up again. This allowed us to stay up late and enjoy all the amazingly beautiful scenery that Alaska has to offer. Exploring the entire state was amazing and we had a great time camping in various state parks, cooking on the grill and sitting next to the campfire watching the abundant Alaskan wildlife.

 

  1.  Valley of the Gods, Utah

 

 

The Valley of the Gods was by far our favorite boondocking location, and we’d definitely recommend this to anyone who has an RV and a few days to spend in the area. Utah is filled with breathtaking scenery, and we really loved the vivid orange colors and the vastness of the different rock formations – we definitely gave our DSLR a workout with the amount of photos we took. Utah actually reminded us a little bit of the outback back home. There is so much to explore in the surrounding areas, and we highly recommend Arches National Park for anyone who likes to hike!

PHOTOS FROM THE ROAD #2

Nathanael and his best friend, Nico, at the Colorado National Monument. She has had added so much joy to the trip. Many national parks don't allow pets on the trails so it's wise to check the park's website to see their pet policy before heading out.

You can't go to Yellowstone without getting a family photo in front of the sign. We had high expectations for Yellowstone, after all, it is the most famous and oldest National Park. It not only lived up but surpassed our expectations and we look forward to going back someday!
