If you’re looking for nice sunny beaches to go swimming, lovely scenery and relaxed ambiance, the east coast of USA is king in early summer.

Spring and fall are certainly popular times to visit national parks. However, if you fancy spending a vacation in the great outdoors, June is a great time, and more so because of the stunning early summer display of wildflowers!
You’ll not only beat the huge park crowds and avoid the school summer holidays, but you’ll also find cheaper cabin rentals, and lodging rates both inside and outside the park.
There are so many national parks to choose from such as Yellowstone National Park
in Wyoming that is hard to mention all of them. Besides Yellowstone and its geysers, three other of the best national parks include:

2. Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona is perhaps the top national park in the southwest region because of the stunning and breathtaking Grand Canyon, one of the top 10 natural wonders in USA.
The Grand Canyon National Park is located north of Arizona, near the border with Utah and Nevada. Besides the stunning views from both the North and South Rims, you can enjoy horseback riding tours, treks along the gorges and white-water rafting.
