National Park Week Fun!

Posted on April 24, 2013

I’m a confessed and professed nerd…on many things. Predominantly facts on anything and everything I can get my hands on, like holidays and events most don’t know or let slip past! So, if you’re not like myself, you may not know that it is National Park week. What’s cool about that is:

  1. You have an excuse to get out of the house this week/weekend
  2. You have an excuse to drag any and every family member and friend with you to get out
  3. You can enjoy the National Parks FOR FREE until the 26th

Here are some more fun news on this week thanks to the National Parks Week Website….

Did you know…America’s national parks include more than:

  • 84 million acres of spectacular scenery, historic landmarks and cultural treasures
  • 17,000 miles of trails
  • 43,000 miles of shoreline
  • 27,000 historic and prehistoric structures
  • 100 million museum items
  • 12,000 campsites
