Every summer, students are faced with the same question—what is there to do? Well, how about visiting the national parks of the United States? The National Park Service is a governmental agency that was created to preserve and maintain our country’s national parks so visitors can enjoy unique scenery, go camping, or learn about nature. Although all our national parks are filled with beauty and awe-inspiring sights, each one is unique in its own way. Here is a list of some of the top parks to visit:
#1- Grand Canyon National Park – Located in the deserts of Arizona just north of the city of Phoenix, the Grand Canyon is about 10 miles wide, 275 miles long, and a mile deep. It was formed by the Colorado River cutting through the reddish rocks over many thousands of years. It is best to visit this park in the summer, for the winters can be quite cold. But no matter when you have time to go, the magnificent size of this natural wonder will be inspiring and breathtaking.

With today's sunrise at 5:37 am and sunset 9:10 pm, we have 15 hours, 32 minutes, and 30 seconds of daylight to explore the park. How much daylight do you have today where you live? What do you plan to do with it? #HappySummerSolstice
