Fall Under the Radar
While it may be hard to imagine that any national park is truly under the radar, there are certainly lesser-visited destinations in the shadow of more famous neighbors. Or perhaps the park’s name is well-known, but because of its location, it simply doesn’t get the same level of visitors as others in the national park system. Here’s a look at some national parks and monuments that are particularly stunning come fall, including one that may soon start charging visitors for the first time ever.
Editor's Note: While most of these destinations are officially designated national parks, we also included sites that are part of the National Park System such as seashores, battlefields, and monuments. Some services may still be limited due to the pandemic; check each park's website before you go.
