Delaware Water Gap, New Jersey
A prime spot for rock climbing in the Northeast, the Delaware Water Gap is great for hikers, nature lovers, and anglers. Take on the park by foot or auto with over 100 miles (160 km) of hiking and roadways.
Indiana Dunes National Park, Indiana
With gorgeous views of Chicago in the distance, Indiana Dunes National Park features lake-side walking trails and its famous “singing sand” which make singing or whistling sound as the wind passes over the dunes.
Olympic National Park, Washington
Home to three converging ecosystems, Olympic National Park in northwest Washington state has rainforest, ocean cliffs, and alpine mountains. Popular hiking loops are along the beach and through the moss-heavy rainforest.
Chincoteague & Assateague Islands, Virginia & Maryland
The home of wild horses rumoured to have been let loose from a Spanish shipwreck (though probably put there to avoid mainland taxes), these islands spanning Virginia and Maryland are home to the annual Pony Penning Day where the volunteer fire department auctions some of the horses to raise funds and keep the population at safe levels.
Mohegan Bluffs, Rhode Island
To get a taste of an Irish landscape on the western side of the Atlantic, check out these greenery-dotted clay cliffs seemingly plummeting into the ocean. Look out over the Atlantic or walk down the staircase to watch from the bottom.
