The Most National Parks in One State

Along with a great climate and many things to do, California also has the most number of national parks within one state. With the recent addition of Pinnacles National Park near Salinas, it brings the total number here to nine. As of 2018, I have been to all except Lassen. 

I have lived in this Southern California for over 20 years, albeit the state seems very crowded when you stay only in the main areas of Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. As soon as you venture out of these congested counties, California offers some of the most pristine land and is home to Joshua Tree, Channel Islands, Death Valley, Yosemite, Pinnacles, Redwoods, Sequoia & Kings Canyon and the other one mentioned above on my to visit soon list.

Most travelers to the islands visit via boat which takes you through the ocean channel teaming with life.Enter your text here...
