Survey Finds Yellowstone Favorite National Park
Yellowstone is the most favored national park among Americans, according to an Expedia.com study commissioned in honor of the national parks' 100th anniversary.

The survey, exploring attitudes toward the national parks, found 27% of respondents named Yellowstone their favorite national park. The Grand Canyon was second at 20%, followed by the Great Smoky Mountains (18%), Rocky Mountain (16%) and Yosemite (10%).

The same five parks were named the top five most beautiful parks by survey respondents, just in a different order: Grand Canyon (25%), Yellowstone (21%), Yosemite (20%), Great Smoky Mountains (12%) and Rocky Mountain (9%).

The majority of respondents, 76%, said they "strongly agree" that national parks are "valuable and beautiful" parts of the country, and 50% of respondents have visited a national park (38% in the past five years and 32% in the last year).

The study was conducted using Google Consumer Surveys, a polling service, from Feb. 26 to 29. There were 1,039 respondents.
