Take your kids to a national park

Experience one of the U.S.’s 388 national parks. America’s national parks run the gamut in terms of cultural, geographic, and geological attractions—so chances are several will appeal to your family. Many of the parks’ websites feature “For Kids” pages that will help you involve your kids in the planning process. Check out the National Parks System’s Webrangers site with your child for inspiration: there are games and quizzes, as well as reports and photos uploaded by other kids.
