This will come as no surprise, but we love a good park.
Whether lounging in a hammock or hiking until the sun sets, parks have a revitalizing and restorative power. When we’re outside, worries melt away, and we’re able to refresh our perspective on the here and now.
With that in mind, we give you a roundup of some of our favorite state parks in the US.
National Parks get a lot of love (in fact, we have a book about it), but we believe that these state parks are equally awesome and majestic.
