US States and National Parks Visited as of 2023

Our goal is to visit all the US states (or at least the lower 48) and as many National Parks as we can before time runs out. We have no idea when our time will run out for even the Bible tells us we don't know what tomorrow brings (The Book of James, Chapter 4). So to be on the safe side, we will say "Lord willing, we will eventually visit all of the US states". We started our adventures together in 2006 and as of 2023, this is our current tally:

30 US States   -   21 National Parks

The US states we have been to are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, and Virginia.

30 states and 21 National Parks

Below is a list of all the National Parks we have been to thus far, in the order in which we saw them.

  1. Great Smoky Mountains National Park
  2. Shenandoah National Park
  3. Hot Springs National Park
  4. Badlands National Park
  5. Wind Cave National Park
  6. Yellowstone National Park
  7. Grand Teton National Park
  8. Arches National Park
  9. Canyonlands National Park
  10. Capitol Reef National Park
  11. Bryce Canyon National Park
  12. Zion National Park
  13. Grand Canyon National Park
  14. Petrified Forest National Park

  17. Guadalupe Mountains National Park
  18. Everglades National Park
  19. Biscayne National Park
  20. Dry Tortugas National Park*
  21. Mammoth Cave National Park

* We only went to the port to Dry Tortugas and not actually out to the fort. At $150-$175 per person to ride the ferry out there, we felt it was simply not worth it. Maybe one day when we win the lottery or someone sponsors us, we will acatually visit the fort.
