Which National Parks Are You Planning on Visiting in 2021?

This past summer, Serena and I tried to do an extensive National Park road trip. The plans were ambitious, to say the least.

The plan was to check off 5 to 7 new National Parks 👇




Because of a combo of travel restrictions, park closures, and a lack of time to wait it out, we ended up visiting zero new National Parks. I'm sure a lot of you reading this can relate. 

The good news is that 2021 aims to be a better year 🎉 Better days ahead, as we like to say. And that hopefully means we can start visiting National Parks again without all the irregular obstacles. 

So that begs the question....

Which National Parks will you visit in 2021? 

Comment below with the National Parks you're planning on visiting. We want to hear from you 📣

Since we're asking you, it's only fair that we share the 7 National Parks that Serena and I are planning on visiting in 2021?

So without further ado.... 

7 National Parks That We're Planning on Visiting in 2021 (crossing our fingers)

Some background info on how / why we chose the below parks. These were the parks we were planning on visiting this past summer. The loop would likely start in Denver, Albuquerque, or El Paso, with stops at select state parks and other outdoor attractions.

That being said, here's our list in (most likely) the order we'd visit...

1) Big Bend National Park

2) Guadalupe Mountains National Park

3) Carlsbad Caverns National Park

4) White Sands National Park

5) Mesa Verde National Park

6) Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

7) Great Sand Dunes National Park

That's our list!

  • Received your National Park poster today and it is wonderful!!!!

  • We’ve been to 39 as of 12/31/20. This year should include Great Sand Dunes, Gateway Arch, Congaree, and Shenandoah, plus a lot of national monuments.

    You guys should have a poster of the 129 national monuments. I’d buy one.
