1. Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve
Located in La Jolla, San Diego, California, this park exuberates great atmosphere from the shorelines to the hiking trails.
2. Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park
Arizona is the home of many beautiful distinct parks, but what separates this one from any other is that it contains the oldest and largest botanical garden in the state of Arizona.
3. Central Park
Okay, so we all know Central Park was going to have to make the cut as the top 5. This is a photo I took back in December before snow covered it up entirely. However, you can see fall slowly transitioning into winter by the stripped trees and leaves on the ground.
4. Deering Estate Park
The Deering Estate park in South Florida is unique in its own because there is a lot of rich history behind the name itself. Many events such as weddings and festivals are held all year round due to its vastness and beauty of it.
5. Fall Creek Falls State Park
The photo easily depicts why this Tennessee park is a must see; but more than that, It contains one of the tallest waterfalls in Eastern of the United States.
