Now that we’ve familiarized you with America’s state parks, we want to bring things to a national level. Get ready for bigger and more famous parks, starting with Paste’s homeland the South.
The South’s national parks are extra special, whether they’re preserving an expanse of unique nature like the Everglades or transforming a coastal fortress into a wildlife sanctuary. Some of the South’s parks even set records: Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave National Park is part of the largest known system of caves, and the Great Smoky Mountains National park, on the border of North Carolina and Tennessee, brings in the most visitors.
