Beauty Of The Past
An American tradition is seeking out the country’s beautiful national parks and visiting them. A great many family vacations are often spent revolving around road trips to these parks. Camping, exploring nature, and connecting with each other through the ecstasies and high-tensions of spending so much time with one another. Families that take the time to visit national parks often pass the tradition down. If you were a child who was brought to these national parks, then it’s likely you’ll want to relive the majesty of their wonders with your own family one day. Perhaps you already have.
Landscapes Of Beauty
Perhaps one of the places you visited was the Rocky Mountains. With its long chain of mountains, it’s easy to visit an entire state and see them looming overhead. This mountain chain also boasts some challenging trails for the adventurous family to tackle. You can travel with an expert guide who can take you to the most scenic of sights on the trail. Of course, be sure you look out for that wildlife.
Instead of white-capped mountains, perhaps you went to Acadia in Maine. With thick forests and rocky waters, you could spend hours fishing or sailing or just exploring the woods and become one with nature. Acadia boasts peaks that go over 1,000 feet, too, for those who are inclined to do a bit of hiking and climbing. If you want a carriage ride over picturesque stone bridges, then this is the place for you, too.
Maybe your family was more interested in the beachy daze of ocean life, and so you stopped off at Cape Hatteras in North Carolina. With its proud lighthouse standing over the Cape and the surrounding islands vigilantly, you can enjoy the calm of the beach with the gulls. Or, for those who prefer a more active vacation, grab a kayak or canoe and explore the many waterways the Cape and ocean has to offer. Just be sure you work up enough appetite for seafood.
All Come Home
All of these memories may currently rest with you now, or perhaps, in a few years, they will find a home within you. Regardless, you can commemorate those family vacations with a national parks map that displays every national park and trail in the country. Hang it on the wall at home or in your office and take the time to remember each time you look at it, the fond memories you created with your parents or your own family now. It is an excellent talking point for guests and friends and can be handed down to each generation of national park explorers to come.
