  • The Ultimate Road Trip- National Parks: If not for the three-night camping trip of an eloquent Scottish preacher who enjoyed botany and an enthusiastic, young, asthmatic bear-hunter, we might not have today’s concept of the national park. Luckily, the great minds of John Muir and President Theodore Roosevelt had time to connect in 1903 on a trip that would change the landscape of the United States and, according to some, the world forever. It led to the creation of the National Park Service. Now, we have a long list of national parks from Maine to Alaska to Hawaii to enjoy. Here, we’ve listed the most visited national parks of the United States!
