This park is in the heart of Lake Michigan and Hamlin Lake, occupying 5,300 acres of the land. The park offers seven miles of sandy dune beaches, over 20 miles of hiking trails, and a historic lighthouse that visitors can climb.

Blackwater Falls State Park (West Virginia) 

West Virginia is not a newcomer in terms of tourism as it homes several tourist destinations, including the Blackwater Falls State Park. Arguably the most photographed landscape in the state, Blackwater boasts its breathtaking 2,456-acre park. During the autumn, the park looks like a mash-up of different colors, and during the winter, the falls freeze into large icicles.
