You don’t have to make an elaborate vacation plan in order to visit some of the most beautiful national parks in the U.S. In fact, you will only need a day, some comfortable clothes and love for nature. But whether you’re used to making outdoors trips or not, these amazing places are definitely going to take your breath away and leave some great memories.
1. Olympic National Park
Just a two-hour drive from Seattle, Olympic National Park will make you feel like you landed on another planet. A rain forest in the middle of North America is something you don’t see every day, and this national park will make you want to stay there to explore its magical corners for more than one day.
But if you do have only one day, you can just stay on the outskirts of the forest, following one of many hiking trails or just walking along the beach. The weather will serve you best if you come in the summer, although the Park has its charms eve during the winter, like Hurricane Ridge which is the favorite place of the winter sports lovers.
