How Many National Parks Have You Visited?

The United States has hundreds of national monuments, seashores, historic sites, rivers, battlefields and memorials. But there are only 59 officially-designated national parks.

National parks are very popular and attract millions of visitors every year, but not many people can say they’ve visited them all. In fact, if you’ve been to just 16 of the 59 parks, you’re way above average.

So how many parks have you visited? Take our checklist challenge and find out.

    I’ve been to Great Sand Dunes and Rock Mountain before, and I headed out for Arches and Canyonlands last month. So 6% is something I need to improve. Maybe a trip to Yosemite, Sequioa, and Mesa Verde might get things back on track…
