National Parks Week: April 16-24In case you missed it, the National Park System turns 100 later this year, August 25th to be exact. But that doesn't mean you have to wait another 4 months to enjoy the parks. As a matter of fact, next week happens to be " National Parks Week" where all parks will have free admission between the dates of April 16 & 24. You can't beat free!
My family is seriously considering doing a National Park for our summer vacation - Lilly even recently started collecting the National Parks quarters set.
Yes, we'll have to brave the crowds, we just need to choose one that will fit everyone's tastes. Me (hiking & fishing), Lilly (activities for those of short attention span), and K.C. (accommodations within driving distance with air conditioning and no bedbugs). We've been chatting about Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, Acadia, & Sequoia, but who knows...
A few weeks ago we took in the IMAX movie "National Parks Adventure" and if you look past the extended Subaru commercial within, it was a great watch. If it's in your area, I'd suggest checking it out. You'll probably get the National Parks bug too.
