Great Basin National Park, Nevada
Most people think of Vegas when they think of Nevada—but if you head toward the Utah border, don’t miss Great Basin, which had just 91,000 annual visitors at last count. It’s home to 5,000-year-old bristlecone pines, 13,063-foot Wheeler Peak, eight ecosystems, and drip-dripping Lehman Caves. The highlight (or lowlight)? The park has some of the best air quality in the nation, making for ink-blue night skies pricked with countless bright stars.
