Nothing reflects the beauty of the seasons better than a national park. From snow-capped mountains to glistening streams to hillsides bursting with color, every time of year at a national park offers something special and breathtaking to behold.

So, when to go? If you loathe jam-packed parking lots and crowds, plan your trip during the early fall or late spring. Summer, which is extremely popular for family vacations, is understandably the busiest time of year. If you absolutely have to travel during the summer, try to plan your visit earlier or later in the season to avoid the peak. As for the serene natural beauty of wintertime, be sure to check ahead to make sure the park is still open. Some close during winter to accommodate heavy snowfall.

Yet another beautiful thing about nature? It’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Natural areas of national parks usually are, too. In fact, fees are only collected during peak seasons and peak hours. Historic and information buildings typically run 9-5 hours, and can vary from park to park and season to season.
