Fun fact of the day: a whole heap of National Parks (and National Monuments, Recreation Areas, and the like) each have their own regularly updated Instagram accounts. If you think about it, it makes sense; what these spaces have to offer – nonstop visual inspiration, scenic landscapes, education, and a cure for your wanderlust – work excellently for the format. It’s exactly the kind of stuff you want to see for a little midday motivation.
This year, the US National Park Service is celebrating its 100th anniversary, so we’re sharing our favorite National Parks and related accounts to help you find the perfect spot for your next adventure.
Oh, and we’ll be taking plenty of trips to our National Parks this summer from the ManMade HQ. And of course we’re gonna be Instagramming it. Let’s hang out over there.
