1: Denali National Park, Alaska
Often called “the last frontier”, Denali in central Alaska is really remote. You can visit this park only during the summer months. Take the Denali Star train or you can drive from Anchorage. The five hour road trip is going to remain etched in your memory for years. Denali is huge (bigger than Massachusetts), wild, and stunning. You can see grizzly bears, bald eagles and wolves. Try one of the cycling or hiking trails. Stay overnight at campgrounds. There are many of them in the park. And of course, there is Mt McKinley, which is the tallest peak in North America. Denali can be very cold, even during the summer, as it is on the edge of the Arctic Circle.
