About This Quiz
Across the US there are a whopping 61 different areas designated as National Parks that range in size from less than a single square mile for Gateway Arch National Park all the way up to over 13,000 square miles for the massive Wrangell-St. Elias Park in Alaska. They cover pretty much every kind of terrain you can think of. Massive forests, frozen glaciers, arid deserts, desolate mountains, robust swampland, coral reefs, pristine beaches, rainforests and more. Some of the most beautiful places on Earth have been designated national parks, and it's well worth your time to visit as many as you can. But with so many to choose from, where do you think you'd start? Which park is "your" park? Which park is the one that most closely lines up with the kind of person you are? Which one of them is you spread out across the landscape all regal and full of splendor? It's time to find out!
Whether you hit up the parks as often as you can or you've always wanted to go but have never made the trip to even one of them, there's a national park out that there mirrors who you are on the inside. Take the quiz and find your inner park!
