The Best National Parks For Kids And Families

Grand Teton National Park

This National Park is full of fun activities that every kid in a park can enjoy. What sets it apart from the others is that the park doesn’t rely heavily on hiking trails to keep its visitors entertained.

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is a great choice, especially with its Young Scientist Program,great wildlife viewing, and exciting volcanic activity, that kids will enjoy and learn from. 

Bryce Canyon National Park

At Bryce Canyon, you can take pictures of the local wildlife, go on family hikes and appreciate the landscape, and go stargazing at night.

Canyonlands National Park

If you plan to take a Utah road trip with your family, then be sure to visit Canyonlands National Park. Canyonlands offers many easy day hikes which are perfect for kids.

Acadia National Park

Acadia is unique in that it’s near a large coastal city called Bar Harbor with many options for tourists to add to their family vacation.

Rocky Mountain National Park

You can spot a moose on Bear Lake Road, Bighorn sheep in the Rockies themselves, mule deer all over the national park, elk in herds around, and even black bears.

Grand Canyon National Park

I’d say one of the best national park family vacation destinations is Grand Canyon National Park. The hikes along the rim were easy enough as long as you can take note of how far your kids can go.

Glacier National Park

You can enjoy kayaking, rafting, and swimming with the kids during your time at Glacier NP, along with some epic hiking. From hiking in snow to hiking in deep forests among waterfalls, Glacier NP has some great trails for families.
