Denali National Park

For overachievers who always need to be at the top, Denali National Park is a choice destination.

Denali National Park is home to Denali (formerly Mount McKinley), the highest peak in North America

It's home to Denali (formerly Mount McKinley), the highest peak in North America. The area's myriad landscapes, from deciduous taiga forests to glaciers, rocky terrain and snow-covered mountains, change with the seasons. Visitors enjoy mountaineering and backpacking in the warmer summer months, and in the snowy winters, dog sledding, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling bring in a different group of travelers. A 92-mile road runs east to west through the park, though it is only available for driving in the summer months, and just the first 15 miles are accessible by personal passenger vehicles. From that point, concessionary buses take visitors deeper into the park and air taxis take the most intrepid of explorers into the mountains where they can land atop a glacier. There are plenty of campgrounds for those who don’t mind the nighttime chill, but the luxury-minded would enjoy a stay at Camp Denali, which boasts sweeping views and was inspired by the homesteader lifestyle.
