Since the National Park System is offering FREE admission this weekend, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite national park but I’m going to add a bit of a twist. You have to guess mine, unfortunately I couldn’t narrow down my choice to only one favorite so I’m giving you a few opportunities to win. But wait- there’s another twist. I’m offering a prize. 



Let’s get started!

Anyone want to take a guess as to what they are? Remember I said I’d throw in a prize? How would you like to have your own copy of Frommer's 500 Places to Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up? Sound like fun? Then you’ll want to play along.
