  • Glacier National Park, Montana

If desert scenes are not your thing, Montana has Glacier National Park that similarly has incredible sights to enjoy for you and the whole family. This National Park has more than 700 miles of hiking trails to offer, which is perfect for those who like to put on their hiking boots and explore the great outdoors.

  • Sequoia National Park, California

The Grand Canyon has rock formations that are guaranteed to induce awe, and the Glacier National Park features monstrous beasts that are capable of changing the very face of the ear. However, Sequoia National Park in California arguably has a feature that is guaranteed to make you feel small. The massive sequoia trees are unbelievable in size, dwarfing humans in a way that can make you feel very small and awed by the might and ability of nature’s wonders.
