Part of every trip to an unfamiliar destination is a visit to one or two tourist traps. While some of them must be avoided at all times and costs, others are worth the time, effort and money.

From visiting all 59 national parks, which are still referred to as “America’s best idea,” to going to football games, embarking on a safari and even attending a rodeo, the great American bucket list has a stunning variety of activities and tons of places to see.

With the help from various travel sites and published adventure stories on The Active Times, we have compiled The Great American Bucket List.

It’s time to get out there and conquer the world. Grab your bucket list; you will definitely want to add these trips to it.
