We took a look at the data and highlighted the most visited U.S. national parks of 2014. From Maine to Montana and beyond, these iconic parks are some of the best in the country—if not the world. Each popular for its own reasons, the top 10 parks represent the beauty and diversity of America. These parks should be on your list and there’s no better time to see them than during National Park Week.
