Because of the harsh winter, some summer vacations are a little later than usual this year. The end is near, though, and people are making plans to gather the family and take off. For many of us, the destination will be a national park.
Which national park has the most visitors?
1. Grand Canyon National Park
2. Great Smoky Mountains National Park
3. Yosemite National Park
The answer is: 2. Great Smoky Mountains National Park
This is probably no surprise to people from the Tri-State, but the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has the most visitors and it's not even close. According to the website for the National Park Service, in 2012 the Smoky Mountains saw more than 9.6 million visitors. A distant number two on the list is the Grand Canyon National Park with 4.4 million visitors.
