Well then, what is it?

Also, feel free to share your experiences at these parks. They're all great, I'm sure.

:eek: South Carolina has a national park? :eek:

I had no idea. Sorry, I was just listing out of the 2004 World Almanac.
Is the park relatively new?

I haven't been to all of these, but I'd have to think that either the Great Smokies or Shenandoah would offer the most breathtaking scenery.

I'd have to say that the Smokies are pretty amazing, but the entire region is at risk due to rising pollution problems. The 100-mile vistas common until the mid 20th century are now a thing of the past.

Congaree's pretty cool, too.

Really? I went there about two years ago, and we were able to see Mount Mitchell from Clingman's Dome.

How about the good-ole Okeefenokee Swamp in South Georgia. There are tons of habits in this park and it has some of the highest diversity of Plant/Animal life in the continental USA. The Everglades is amazing too, and thats what I voted for.

I voted for the Smokies, but I also liked the Everglades, and Congaree was ok when I visited about 10 years ago, I remember seeing lots of snakes and getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. It was rough.

The Okefenokee isn't a Nat'l Park, it's a "Nat'l Wildlife Refuge" or something like that.
Though this gives me an idea for another thread. :naughty:
