Best Places to Visit in USA in June
1. Rocky Mountain National Park, CO for Wildlife
With highs averaging in the mid 60’s, Rocky Mountain National Park in June offers perfect hiking weather. Head to Bear Lake, Emerald Lake and Adam’s Falls trails, just for starters.
In June, most of the snow will have melted for easy access to roads and trails within the park. However, when planning a trip to any national park, always check the forecast ahead of your visit.
While you’re here, be sure to take a scenic drive on Trail Ridge Road, which reaches altitudes of up to 12,000 ft and is considered the highest continuous paved road in the nation.
Be on the lookout for moose, elk, deer, mountain goats, big horned sheep, marmots, and other wildlife during your stay.
Drive slowly and watch for other cars pulled over alongside of the road. This is usually a good indication that animals are in the area.
Finally, if you’re visiting Rocky Mountain National Park in June, don’t forget to check out the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival located in nearby Estes Park.
This festival celebrates Scandinavian culture and offers food, crafts, demonstrations, and entertainment.
