Gentleman's Philosophy

5 (or 6) U.S. National Parks that Everyone Should Visit

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, in the United States, our nation’s government is rife with political gridlock, corruption, and gross overspending. Of course, this really isn’t news to anybody, even to those who live outside the U.S. However, in the words of Parks and Recreation‘s Ron Swanson, “…the National Park Service is the only branch of government worth a damn”, and I tend to agree with that. The National Park Service’s sole mission is to preserve our nation’s natural environments and historical landmarks, as well give citizens and non-citizens alike a chance to appreciate the beauty, grandeur, and sometimes danger of God’s creation. So in honor of that, I’m going to list five (technically six) National Parks that everyone needs to visit at least once in their lives. Of course, I’d like this entry to be closer to 63 entries long, but I only have so much time and space to write. So without any further delay, let’s get started!
