What's your favorite national park
? The National Park Service recently released a list of the Top 10 most visited national parks in 2012. No surprises here - the sites on this list have remained the same for at least the last decade, with each park jockeying up and down on the list due to weather events or other seasonal changes. But other than a few fluctuations up and down, this list has remained unchanged.
Speaking of weather, Hurricane Sandy had a major impact on parks last year with at least 70 sites from Maine to North Carolina reporting damage. Still, the park service
in general reported seeing more than 283 million visitors last year, up 3 million from the year before.
So how many of these Top 10 parks have you visited? And which parks would be on your Top 10 list?
