America’s 10 Best National Parks You Should Visit

4. Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

If you’ve ever wanted to take a closer look at the famed Blue Ridge Mountains, there’s no better way to make that happen than visiting Virginia’s legendary Shenandoah National Park. The heart of the Appalachian Trail and the Shenandoah Valley will be yours for exploring as well, just like every single one of the 196,000 acres of the park’s protected wilderness.

Having gained national park status in 1935, Shenandoah has since been considered one of the best national parks in America with good reason. It offers a rich historical perspective, due to the fact that it is a place settlers called home for over 100 years. Be sure to experience the Skyline Drive – a National Scenic Byway that runs the length of the park.
