The National Park Foundation’s new “Road Trippin'” guide inspires people to #FindYourPark/#EncuentraTuParque during a long weekend getaway with 15 different national park itineraries. The new guide combines visits to well-known national parks with some lesser-known treasures.
“Our guide details how it’s possible to enjoy a variety of national park experiences in just three days,” said Will Shafroth, president of the National Park Foundation. “Through easy to follow, diverse itineraries, we hope to motivate more people to plan a national park trip of their own.”
Featuring natural, cultural, and historical parks, and a mix of interests and activity levels, the guide’s suggestions include:
- Traveling through time in Idaho with visits to Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument, Minidoka National Historic Site, Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve, and City of Rocks National Reserve
- Re-tracing history from Tennessee to Mississippi with visits to Natchez Trace Parkway, Shiloh National Military Park, Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site, and Tupelo National Battlefield
- Discovering spectacular stories of South Dakota with visits to Wind Cave National Park, Badlands National Park, and Minuteman Missile National Historic Site
- Connecting with the prairie, presidential moments, and more near Kansas City with visits to Fort Scott National Historic Site, Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site, and Harry S. Truman National Historic Site
