Watch couples fall in love at the country’s most beautiful national parks

Romance and nature. What more could you want? VIDEO

Topics: Video, national parks, Valentines Day, Marriage, nature, ,

You don’t have to be a fan of Valentine’s Day, or marriage, or monogamy, or any of that stuff to appreciate this compilation of couples getting engaged and married at national parks and wildlife refuges, put together by the Department of the Interior. If nothing else, it’s a very cute reminder of the over 245 million acres of public lands out there to enjoy however you so choose. (Remember how upset we were when they all locked their gates during the government shutdown?)

If you are feeling inspired to head out with a special someone, the national parks all happen to be offering free entry from Saturday through Monday. Just don’t forget to celebrate responsibly.
