The U.S. is known to have the most beautiful National Parks in the world, but some of these National Parks fall under the radar. We want to share some places across the U.S. that are just as beautiful and less crowded than the well-known National Parks you may already know, such as Yosemite or Acadia National Park. Here is our list.
When you think of a National Park in Maine, you usually think of Acadia National Park, but many people forget about The Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. The woods and mountains span over 87,500 acres in the northern Penobscot county of Maine. In this wild landscape, you will discover spectacular views of Mount Katahdin, the beautiful fauna, rivers, and the night skies.
