If you like the outdoors, a road trip between several national parks is perfect for a long weekend or vacation.
This map plots the best route between nearby national parks so you spend less time planning and more time exploring.
While you probably won t drive to all 47 national parks featured on the map at once, you can still create your own road trip route using parts of it.
For example, you could start in L.A., hit Joshua Tree and Death Valley, cut over to Kings Canyon, Sequoia, and Yosemite before looping back towards L.A. through Pinnacles and the Channel Islands.
The only route planning you would have to do is between Death Valley and Kings Canyon.
In the interactive map at the link below, you can see which national parks are close to each other and the roads you would drive to get to each of them.
