If you ever wanted a chance to visit a national park, look no further than the two finest choices out there: Grand Canyon and Yosemite. While the sheer number of people flocking to visit the Arizona based Grand Canyon outnumbers its Californian counterpart Yosemite by a couple million, both national parks share a rich environment for any and all to enjoy.
Due to the expansive nature of both parks, the best season to visit would be one that isn’t dominated by sweltering heat nor ravaged by bitter cold, clearly making Autumn the wisest choice to visit these treasured landmarks.
- The Grand Canyon, located in Arizona, is 18-miles wide, 277 miles long, and offers spectacular views and hiking opportunities.
- Yosemite is the third-most visited national park and is known for its magnificent waterfalls and giant sequoia trees.
- Since summer is the busiest season for the Grand Canyon and Yosemite, fall is the perfect time to visit both of these national treasures.
“Yosemite, which is the third-most visited national park at about 4 million guests a year, is more than 1,200 square miles known for its waterfalls and giant sequoias in California.”
