Shenandoah takes top rank in National Park reviews
For National Parks Week, Travel Lemming, an online travel guide with over 10 million annual readers, ranked all 63 National Parks from around the country.
Taking home the #1 ranking based on their data-backed review process was Virginia’s only entry to the list, Shenandoah National Park.
Rankings consisted of data from six different categories including affordability, accessibility, biodiversity, crowds, reviews, and weather.
SNP took home the top overall rating with exceptional scores in 3 categories.
The park was ranked 2nd in affordability, 6th in biodiversity with over 2500 unique species, and 7th in accessibility due to the easy drive from multiple airports.
SNP was the 19th best reviewed park with an average rating of 4.77 out of 5.
Big name, iconic parks like Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Yosemite all finished outside the top 15 largely due to complaints of overcrowding and cost of travel.

Fun Fact March 23, 2022.
Today in World Meteorological Day, remembering the day that the World Meteorological Origination was formed in 1950. This day also educates the public on the importance of meteorology. Barometric pressure. Jet stream. Wind chill factor. Cloud cover. Chance of precipitation. When you listen to a weather report, you’ve probably heard these terms. A meteorologist is a scientist that studies the atmosphere. Meteorology has been studied for thousands of years, however, it was only since the 18th century that significant progress has been made in meteorology. Thanks to computers and satellites in the 20th century, the accuracy of weather predictions has greatly improved. The first daily weather forecast appeared in the London Times in 1861. Today we celebrate our very own Meteorologist, Kemp Miller. If you happen to see Kemp, thank him for predicting the weather and keeping us safe.
