Have you ever visited a National Park?

I have travelled by car all around the country and have passed through and stayed in quite a number of sites managed by US National Park Service. Currently, I live in a national park (Lowell Historical National Park). I've also been to Acadia National Park, Boston Historical National Park, Cape Cod National Seashore, Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Everglades National Park, Fire Island National Seashore, Grand Canyon National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Great Smokey Mountains National Park, North Cascades National Park, Redwood National Park, Saguaro National Park, San Francisco National Maritime Historical Park, Saratoga National Historical Park, Shennenhoah National Park, & Yellowstone National Park.

Not a national park, but I have been briefly to a "provincial park." I live right arround the corner from it and my Gramps and my uncle helped to build it.

Umm...I'm not actually sure. State parks, I know. National...I don't *think* so.

No, but there are a couple of really nice parks in Ohio --Dawes Arboretum in Heath/Newark & Blendon Woods in Gahanna/Columbus

I went to Acadia in Bar Harbor, Maine a few years ago. I love it there,  I was able to climb something like 6 mountains in one day. They're small but they still had great views all the way up.

We never traveled when we were kids so nope. I just haven't had the opportunity now that I'm only.

Stephanie, 25

Oh, yeah.

Karen, 21

I've visited lots of them, from Arcadia in Maine to the Everglades in Florida and Olympic Park in Northwest Washington State.

I have visited many National Parks, SmokY National Park in Tenn. and the ShenangoNational Park in Virginia where the skyline drive is and we stayed in one of the lodges there. It was in October and the colors were beautiful. There have been other National Parks in Pennsylvania I have visited and saw all kinds of wild life there. They parks are just beautiful and peaceful

Yes. I like to think that my federal tax money comes right out of my pocket and goes directly to the National Park Service. This agency is woefully short of money.

Yellowstone National Park

Yeah, Olympia National Park in Washington. It's an actual rainforrest. A temperate one, anyway. We went camping up there for a week and it poured rain every minute. We ended up buying a 40 square foot tarp and using all our other tarps to make this enormous canopy so we could actually leave the tent. Of course, there was nothing but mud outside.

Sure, down the shore, quite a few beaches are nat'l Parks, Sandy Hook. Seven President's beach.

I'm going by the list of parks at the National Park Service website. I've visited Ford's Theater National Historic Site, the Lincoln Memorial, the National Mall, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Rock Creek Park, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Washington Monument (all DC). I've also visited the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park, and I frequently attend Wolf Trap Farm Park for the Performing Arts because it's about 15 minutes from where I live (both VA). When I was very young I visited the Clara Barton National Historic Site, and I've also visited the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine and Glen Echo Park (all MD). I've been to Gettysburg National Military Park and Gettysburg National Cemetery (both PA)...and I think that's probably about it.

I have visited several National Parks and worked at Yellowstone National Park for a summer. I was a server in the employee dining room. It paid peanuts but was a good experience to spend the time in the park.

Tina, 31
, MA   USA

Yes, several of them, in fact. Most of them I visited this past summer when I was on a cross-country drive; the Black Gunnison and Monument National Parks in Colorado, Arches and Zion Canyon in Utah.

Kim, 30

Nope can't say that I have. I have seen a couple of beautiful state parks but thats it.

Maggie, 20

Not one like Yellowstone, but I've been to ones like Ellis Island in NY, Independence Hall in Philly, the Everglades in Florida, the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

Tracy, 24

Yes. Rocky Mountain National Park is incredible. The vistas are almost mind boggling...

Jeremy, 13

I'm sure I have. Though I'm also sure that if I did it was in my childhood and I don't remember it too well.

A couple years go my husband and I visited Acadia National Park. Shenandoah Nat'l Park is only two hours from here so we go there about once a month. It is my favorite place in the world.

Reba, 51

No, not yet, but I'd love to do it, anytime. . .I'm just waiting for your call Eva. . .
