Guide to National Parks
Overall Rating: My rating on a scale of 1 – 5, Bell curve so there are as many “1”s as there are “5”s. “5” being the best
All national parks are beautiful, unique, and worth the trip. The ratings are my opinion and heavily influenced by my preferences. You may disagree and I welcome comments but this is inherently subjective.
I used visitation data, adjusted for location, to rank all the national parks. Even this attempt at objective assessment has some bias embedded in the algorithm, but it’s an attempt at objectivity for something that is subjective by nature.
