Exploring all 400+ National Park Units in the US

Matt and Diana, both European immigrants, took their first trip together in Yosemite where they fell in love with each other and the National Parks.

Their goal is to inspire you to explore the outdoors and give you the information you need to do it. They share their journey and tips on their Adventurous Way blog and YouTube channel.

Advice on planning a National Park tour

  • Do research ahead of time. The more you research, the more you’ll get out of it.
  • Check the national park websites and look for information online through blogs and videos.
  • Talk to the rangers and staff. They will tell you what to do and where to go in each location.
  • Get up early! If you get out into the parks before everyone else, you’ll be able to see more and enjoy the experience with fewer tourists.
