No matter where you live in the US, chances are good that there are at least one or two national parks within easy traveling distance. We’ve chosen to make those the focus of many trips for our family, both the day-trip variety and longer excursions. We’ve found that national parks can be amazing places to let your kids explore nature and even the history of the nation – most parks put on educational programs throughout the year (whether you are homeschooling or roadschooling, perfect educational stop). You just need to plan ahead and see what’s on offer. Whether you like caves or trees, geology or wildlife, we’ve found it in national parks. Not to mention the fact that the kids really enjoy the trips.
Please share about any visits you and your family have made to some National Parks! (I could use a few new ideas, lol!)
