The ongoing pandemic changed so many facets of our lives, including the way that Americans travel. Instead of jet setting to foreign countries, many are opting to explore their own backyards with the good old fashioned road trip. The United States has many National and State parks (and even amusement parks!) that are both beautiful and majestic. Outdoor spaces offer something for everyone; picturesque hikes, natural wonders, wildlife, and even exhilarating roller coasters!

Tips include:

  • It’s no surprise that so many picturesque National Parks exist out West. From Yellowstone and Yosemite to the Grand Canyon and Glacier National Park, the breathtaking views will surely please everyone!
  • The Western part of the US might be home to some of the biggest national parks but there are some fantastic options in the East too like the Great Smokey Mountains National Park in North Carolina/Tennessee, Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, and Acadia National Park in Maine.
  • If you’re more of a thrill seeker, head to Cedar Point in Ohio to ride the Top Thrill Dragster roller coaster. Sports fan? Take in a game at classic stadiums like Wrigley Field or Fenway Park.
  • Earn rewards along the way! The Wander Card is Credit One Bank’s first travel-focused credit card and gives road trippers, outdoor enthusiasts and everyday adventurers more flexible ways to earn and redeem points for meaningful experiences.
