There’s something powerful about experiencing history exactly where it happened. Our national parks provide opportunities to learn about our past and reflect on the leaders whose visions carried us into the present, opportunities to stand where heroes stood.
Life can be grinding. Luckily, there are over 400 national parks across the country waiting to be explored. And with such a wide range of parks, programs, and activities, odds are there’s one closer to you than you realized. Best news of all, national parks are free on January 20.
Do you prefer to hit the trail or relax by the water? Are you a history buff or an outdoor explorer? And do you know which parks offer activities you’re interested in? Let us help you find the perfect park for your next adventure.
