Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Shenandoah was created explicitly so there would be a national park in the eastern part of the United States, which would be on a par with the parks in the west. At the time it was created, there were only 2 parks east of the Mississippi River: Hot Springs and Acadia.

Hundreds of families were removed from their farms and homesteads to get the land to create the park; something which never had to happen in the western US.

Located less than 2 hours from Washington DC, it is one of the most visited parks in the United States.
