With the help of Yelp, MONEY has identified the best park in each of the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, and then spelled out the costs to visit them.
Some spots are quaint local parks, others bustling community hubs. Several are massive national parks. All were singled out by a Yelp algorithm that considered both the number of positive park reviews and its business star ratings.
MONEY then added travel costs, where available, generated from its Best in Travel database—factoring in average flight, hotel, car, and food prices. The price is based on a three-day trip for two people; if a city is identified in parentheses next to the price, it’s because we used that city rather than the park’s nearest town.
MONEY named Over-The-Rhine's Washington Park the Best Park in Ohio. See the entire list of the best park in every state in the U.S. here.
