Crowd-Free National Parks

If your family wants to explore the natural wonders and escape from the busy life of the city, here are some of the popular national parks in the America that are crowd-free.

Biscayne - The largest marine park in North America (at about 173,000 acres), Biscayne lies just 25 miles from Miami and sits on part of the world’s third-largest coral-reef system.

Congaree National Park - Located about 20 miles from Columbia, South Carolina, this recent newcomer preserves the largest tract of old-growth floodplain forest in the whole of North America.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park - It’s not all sand and surf on Hawaii's Big Island. The world’s largest volcano, Mauna Loa, is also found here, rearing up 13,677 feet from below sea level.

Big Bend National Park – It is one of America’s largest and least-visited national parks. Big Bend’s acreage actually consists of arid desert expanses, giant canyons, and the Chisos mountain range.

North Rim of Grand Canyon - North Rim is that much harder to reach that few visitors do – those that do go the extra mile (or 215 in this case, by car) will be rewarded with serenity and an unblocked view of one of Mother Nature’s most stupendous creations.

Big Bend National Park – It is one of America’s largest and least-visited national parks. Big Bend’s acreage actually consists of arid desert expanses, giant canyons, and the Chisos mountain range.

Sequoia and Kings Canyon - Dominated by the Sierra Nevada range, whose peaks shelter the headwaters of three rivers, diverse wildlife, and of course, the park’s eponymous groves of massive sequoias.

Cape Breton Highlands - The park’s rugged coastline, forested plateaus, canyon views, and verdant highlands are marvelous to behold, as are vistas of frolicking whales and soaring bald eagles.
