I grew up only a couple of hours from the Grand Canyon and I think it’s one of the most picturesque national parks. It is one of those places that everyone needs to see at least once. There are many reasons to visit the Grand Canyon besides the awe-inspiring views. You can exercise as you hike for miles and there are educational opportunities as you learn about all the different plants and wildlife. The weather at the Grand Canyon is pretty mild and the landscape changes throughout the year, giving you different viewing experiences. All of these reasons are why the Grand Canyon is the second most visited national park in the United States.
