    10 Best National Parks for Sightseeing & Non-Hiking Adventures in 2024

    In this Travel Tuesday Flashback Episode we are bringing you another full list of iconic national parks without hiking to see and enjoy. We love an “easy day” of 12 mile hikes to reach peak summit views as much as the next person, but sometimes you want to relax and just sightsee in America’s most beautiful natural preserves. Some of these national parks have truly easy trails and overlooks accessible by car or paved paths, or other adventures like snorkeling or white water rafting so you can see it all without a strenuous hike! Here are 10 of the easiest national parks to see without hiking.


    Haleakala National Park - Hawaii
    Gateway Arch National Park - Missouri
    Olympic National Park - Washington
    Shenandoah National Park - Virginia
    Mammoth Cave National Park - Kentucky
    Virgin Islands National Park - USVI
