For years, locals like Carol V in Kihei have been sharing insights about ways to enjoy parks like Haleakala National Park in Hawaii:

“A lot of people want to come up for sunrise and just can’t get up or even want to get up at 2am to make the trip. I am writing this to tell you sunset is fantastic as well… It’s not as crowded at sunset; another plus.”

Checking Yelp before you finish packing your bags can help you plan the perfect trip. Yelper Phillip Y is full of good advice for visiting Olympic National Park. At Hurricane Ridge he recommends, “Just don’t forget your hoodie or sweater,” and urges, “be sure to bring a raincoat and umbrella since it rains 80% of the time” in the Hoh Rainforest.
