Explore America’s National Parks with Family

Explore Amierica's National Parks with Family

By nature, children are curious. This is why a National Parks vacation is one of the most ideal vacations to take for family travel. Last year, as the National Park Service celebrated it’s 100th anniversary they launched the, “Find Your Park” campaign which was designed for families to find which National Park would best fit their needs as a family. While that was a special for the 100th anniversary, they have decided to keep it well into 2017 to help families build interest in National Park travel.

So why a national park for your next family vacation?

Like I mentioned earlier, children are curious and adventurous and what a better place to explore the world than a National Park? Imagine yourself with your family among the tall trees, volcanoes, caves, wildlife, and much more. One feature I love is the Junior Rangers program. This program was designed for children between the ages of 5-13 and a ton of educational activities. The program is your trusted guide to these special places–filled with color photos, fun facts, cool things to do, conservation tips, and much more.

What’s trending? 

Families are adding to their bucket-list of locations to travel to. While National Park travel has hit the top 6 list for families in 2017 according to U.S. News, it can still be hard to know, where are families going. Here’s what we’ve found:

  • Alaska’s Denali National Park
  • Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park
  • Dry Tortugas National Park in Florida
  • Channel Islands National Park in California
  • Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado
  • Yosemite National Park in California
  • Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona
  • Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming
  • Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming

While the list is much longer, these are the trends for 2017. Our Guru Travel Professionals build custom itineraries for your family to guide you throughout your vacation. These itineraries will keep you on track and insure that you see and do everything on your list.

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
