Plan Your Summer Vacation to a National Park!

 Bryce Canyon in Utah was amazing!

Are you planning your summer vacation? National parks are loads of fun to visit. This site lists the states and U.S. Territories that have national parks: http://www.nps.gov/index.htm  Each listing gives pet regulations, fun things to do and other topics.

From the site:
The National Park Service was created by an Act signed by President Woodrow Wilson on August 25, 1916. Yellowstone National Park was established by an Act signed by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872, as the nation's first national park.

Visitors can obtain park passes by visiting their nearest park site. Most sites have passes available, however it is recommended to call a park prior to your visit. Learn more about the variety of park passes at: America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass.
