Chart your travels with 15 of the best National Park posters. Hang a National Park map in your house, and bring the adventure home!
A recent trip to Hawaii took us through two National Parks: Haleakala and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Since returning, I’ve been browsing the web for the best National Park posters in search of a print for our home. If you’ve got a National Park map or poster on your wish list, you’ll find your favorite in this list.
What is the difference between a National Parks Poster and a National Parks Map? Well, it’s in the name! A National Park map must include a map (surprise!). Though the map may be made with poster-like material or is poster-sized, it is classified as a map. For the sake of clarification, let’s define each category in this post:
National Parks Poster – Features the National Parks in a list, typically with words and pictures; but does not include a map.
National Parks Map – Features a map of the United States, highlighting the location of each National Park.
Interactive National Parks Map – The same as a National Parks map, with the addition of an interactive feature. An interactive map might include a checklist, stickers, push-pins, etc.
