I was super excited to be on this tour and given the opportunity to review such an awesome book.
With Summer just a few months away, we've been talking about going somewhere, taking a small trip or even just a weekend family getaway. We don't want to go far, we want to be able to stay within State, and this book has so many ideas and options for our State.
The book is divided into the different States and provides not only information on big national parks to visit, but also day trips, what to bring, how to get there, if there are multiple park entrances and where they are located and so on.
Not only filled with tons of ideas for the perfect family vacation or day trip, but the photography is absolutely breathtaking, pulling you straight into the pages and making you wish you could climb right on in to enjoy the scenery.
If you're planning your family vacation for this summer and looking for a great place to visit, within your State or any other State in the country, this is the book for you.
