One of the first things I do when I begin to make travel arrangements is to search the National Parks website to determine if there is a park located along or nearby the route to our destination. Often free or low-cost, family friendly, relaxing, educational, and sometimes entertaining, what’s not to love about the National Park system?
April 16th through April 24th, is National Park Week. This week ALL parks offer free admission and have arranged special programming that focus on this year’s theme Healthy Parks, Healthy People. The park system has planned some really special activities so if you have a National Park near you, this may be a great week for a field trip!
In honor of my family’s love of our National Parks, I’ll be taking the next week to share some of the parks that we’ve visited and enjoyed, as well as some of the tips I’ve learned over the years when it comes to making the most out of your visit.
I’d love to hear about some of your favorite parks too so I’ve decided to offer a link-up. There aren’t any rules, you don’t even need to link back to my sight (though I would appreciate it), so if you’ve ever written about an experience you’ve had at one of our National Treasures, feel free to join in!
