Top 10 National Parks By Visitors

My family loves traveling to National Parks. Although we are blessed with a lot of National Parks in Utah, you may feel as though you don’t have as many opportunities where you live. I have an awesome list of the 10 Most Visited US National Parks in 2015. Maybe one of these National Parks will get you excited to do a little exploring this year. Check out the top 10 below!

  1. The Great Smoky Mountains – 10,712,674 visitors in 2015
  2. Grand Canyon National Park – 5,520,736 visitors
  3. Rocky Mountain National Park – 4,155,916 visitors
  4. Yosemite National Park – 4,150,217 visitors
  5. Yellowstone National Park – 4,097,710 visitors
  6. Zion National Park – 3,648,846 visitors
  7. Olympic National Park – 3,263,761 visitors

  9. Acadia National Park – 2,811,184 visitors
  10. Glacier National Park – 2,366,056 visitors

Looking at these numbers, I never would have guessed that the Great Smoky Mountains would have been the #1 National Park visited in 2015. Although, I do see why! I also have some other exciting news to share with you.
