Our Favorite National Parks

This past week has been National Parks Week here in the US, so I figured it was time I updated my post sharing all of the National Parks sites that we have visited over our thirteen years living in America. 

Have you visited any National Parks? I'd love to hear which one is your favorite.

Saguaro National Park, Arizona
Yellowstone, Wyoming
Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
Cape Cod National Sea Shore, Massachusetts
Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado
Bandelier National Monument, New Mexico
Dinosaur National Monument, Utah
Zion National Park, Utah
Arches National Park, UT
Muir Woods, California
Boston National Historical Park, Massachusetts
Grand Canyon, Arizona

As there are many different types of national parks locations around the country, I've sorted this post by categories. You'll find the following categories:
  • National Parks
  • National Historical Parks
  • National Historic Sites
  • National Monuments
  • National Preserves
  • National Memorials
  • National Recreation Areas
  • National Seashores
I've also included an extra special park favorite at the very end of this post so make sure to read all the way through!

Let's take a look...

35+ Must See Murals in Nashville

Have you ever been to Nashville?

If you're anything like me, you probably have an idea in your head that the whole city is nothing but country music, but I'm hear to tell you that there's so much more to see and do in Nashville. 

Ok, so yes, country music is BIG in Nashville and its presence is felt everywhere, but this vibrant city has so much more to offer - especially if you love street art as much as I do!

I recently spent a few days exploring Nashville while I was in town for Mom 2.0 Summit and I was in awe of just how much street art can be found all around town. So today I'm sharing the best murals I found. It's only a tiny glimpse of just how colorful the city is, but I only had a few days to explore and I was busy with other fun touristy stuff that I'll be sharing soon. 

If you're planning a visit to Nashville and you love finding colorful murals, read on... 

Nashville is a pretty big city, so I've divided this list into neighborhoods. That way you'll know that the murals in each section are relatively close to each other. The Downtown, SoBro and Gulch neighborhoods are all within easy walking distance of each other, however the 12 South neighborhood will require driving to. I took an Uber between Downtown and 12 South and it cost me around $11.00 each direction. I've also thrown in one Opryland mural in this list. I didn't explore the area an awful lot and I'm really not sure if there are many murals around there, but this one was right by my hotel on the first night and I couldn't resist adding it. Opryland is east of Downtown and will cost you about $20 for an Uber.
