Do you dream of exploring the amazing National Parks of America with your family?
Many of us have fond memories or exciting dreams when it comes to visiting the National Parks. But actually planning and executing a fabulous trip to one of the National Parks can be quite daunting! What activities/hikes would work best for your children? Where would you stay? What would you eat? How much would things cost? How can you set your family up for the sort of fun adventures and memory-making that you have in mind?
In honor of the 100th anniversary of the United States National Parks system, Power of Moms Co-Director, Saren Eyre Loosli and her family along with four other families spent a full month last summer visiting the original 12 National Parks that were linked up by the old Park to Park Highway It was an epic 6000 mile adventure and you can click here for overall information on their trip.
At each of the 12 parks they visited, Saren worked with others in the group to document what they saw and did through writing, photographs and videos. Drawing from these materials and from ideas solicited from our Power of Moms audience of almost a million moms, Saren has compiled a guide that shares overall tips for making family trips to National Parks wonderful plus details on the best things for families to do at each of the parks visited.
